We did get an early start today. We left the hotel at 8:15. We were out of diapers so David and I took off in search of them. We took the first exit along the freeway and found nothing. Then we couldn’t get back on the road going east. We ended up right back where we had started from.Continue reading “Three States”
David and I left everyone behind as we headed out to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. We had to get to Costco to pick up my Cymbalta. We figured we could get there and pick it up, then meet the rest of our caravan on Highway 90.
As we were getting back on the highway from the hotel I could see the Missouri River. We were well on our way by 7:40.Continue reading “Leaving Them Behind”
Well by the time everyone got checked into the hotel last night and ate no one wanted to check out Deadwood. I guess the kids really wanted to see Deadwood because there is a TV show that they watch. It has even been on for 3 seasons and I guess now they are coming out with a movie.
It was decided that David, Heather and would go back to see Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse, then catch up with the rest of the group. We could drive a lot faster since we weren’t towing anything.
If you want to check out Deadwood continue reading.Continue reading “To Mt Rushmore or not to Mt Rushmore”
This was supposed to be the day of seeing new things. Well at least for some of us. Our friends, Steve and Nancy, had told us about this really cool place called Mammoth Site in Hot Springs, South Dakota. Since we were kind of going to be in the area because we were going to Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse we thought we could squeeze it in too.
Well if you have been following along you would have noticed that things don’t seem to always go as planned for us.Continue reading “Mammoths, Mammoths, Everywhere!”
I started my morning off by writing my blog I should have written the night before. David had brought me breakfast, so I could get it done before I had a couple of adorable little girls come to visit their Oma.
They were both very concerned about the clock that was blinking. I would have set it but I wasn’t sure what time it was with the Day Light Savings. I now have all our electronics at the right time, including my fitbit which has been wrong since we left Alaska time zone.Continue reading “Goodbye Montana and Hello Wyoming”
We started the day with our beautiful granddaughters. The other grandma, Linda, came to hang out with us too.
We are setting off a little later today because we just have a little way to go because we are stopping in Great Falls, Montana to visit some old friends.Continue reading “Old Friends and the USA”
We started our day once again with Bekka and Kate. They were helping Granpa with the luggage.
Bekka is more involved with playing with Alice’s leash than eating her apple. Kate then managed to get both of theirs.
Dan had said we were going to leave at 9 but we were running a little late it was more like 9:45. This is us as we are getting ready to head out.Continue reading “Making Time”
Dan came up with a plan for our overloaded trailer. He rented a storage unit and as soon as we get to York, PA and unload him and David are heading back up here to get the rest of the stuff. I tell you I can see that the trailer and truck look like they are sitting better now. Dan said that the tires had rubbed holes in the wheel well and it was going to start throwing mud and snow up into the trailer.
Heather, Dan, Jim and David worked unloading things that we didn’t need right away. The wind was blowing and it started raining on them a little.
While they did that Linda and I had the hard job of taking care of our granddaughters.
Alice just spent the day kicked back.
Linda and I took the girls to the buffet at the hotel. They were so good and ate like big girls. Linda was having trouble with her phone, so we weren’t able to contact the rest of our group. Just as we received a text from Heather David showed up to tell us not to pack up and that we were staying another night. Linda and I finished eating lunch with our little girls, then it was time for their naps.
It was 2 before the rest of the party showed up. Heather was so frozen she had to take a hot bath to warm up. Then Heather and I did a little running around to pick up some apples and bananas which are the girls favorite. We also looked for some Halloween costumes for the little girls. We found some cute bathrobes that worked great, one was a frog and the other one was a bunny.
Before we went to dinner Heather and Dan let the girls go Trick or Treating to the grandparents’ rooms. I am not to sure they knew what was going on but the adults had fun.
We were all ready to have a good meal which we thought should include a steak. We went to the Sawmill which was close enough to walk, since everyone except us had something attached to the back of their vehicle, David ferried Heather and a baby and then Dan and the other baby to the restaurant because the wind was blowing.
After dinner we all walked back while David took Linda and a baby back to the hotel. It was a nice dinner and a good time with family.
Thanks for stopping by!
Started my morning out playing with the girls, so Mom could pack while Dad worked on trailer.
I tell you they make us laugh so much. Some of the things they do.Continue reading “Wreck and Over Weight”
We ate breakfast at the hotel before we headed out. This morning was a good breakfast with waffles, eggs and bacon. That should hold us over for a little while.
Started my day out with a couple cute girls who I bathed while Mommy and Daddy packed up. We even got a little pony on the top of Kate’s head. She finally has enough to put up.Continue reading “Spectacular Sunset”
