Family Vacation was a Success!

Deacon wanted to see Mt. Rushmore.
I had never seen it.
Noah had never been there either.
So we thought, "why not?"
Let's take the preschoolers on an 1800 mile road trip to see the faces!
So we did.
(I can think of a lot of "why not" reasons...but the kids actually did great and we all had a good time)

First we stopped to see my grandparents. My Grandpa Andy is 92 and my Grandma Vivian is almost 85. They were happy to see the boys. See my mom there in blue? We brought her along to be the "Granny Nanny". She was invaluable as an extra set of hands. And it gave us the all important 1:1 ratio.

These are just some pictures I snapped as we drove along through what we call "Teletubby Land". It looks more like the land where the Tellytubbies come to play in real life, only there are no fake rabbits or creepy baby sun.

Those windmills are so HUGE. Noah gave us a little lesson on how they provide energy. He is handy that way :)

Well, I have mountains of laundry to finish, miles to run and milk to buy. Oh and flowers to plant....

so did you ever get out of the state?!?! Maybe there will be a part two at the zoo and a part three at the "faces"
glad it went well!

I wouldn't say relaxing...but it was fun.

Karla, there will be more parts!

I'm glad the trip went well. I'm sure the 1:1 ratio helped with the success=-)
