Tuesday | Day 15

Bright and early! We had breakfast, loaded the car and hit the road.

Hanging out in the gift shop for a few.

Asking a park ranger some questions to get all the things checked off in their passports.

Getting sworn in as jr. rangers.

We had the most amazing ice cream there. It was delicious!

After we were done at Rushmore we headed through Custer to see the wildlife.

After literally driving through the entire park without seeing a buffalo and kind of starting to feel bummed out we saw a bunch of them at the exit we needed to take. We were all so excited. They were a lot uglier than we thought they would be!

We ate a quick dinner at a dive restaurant in Rapid City. The kids LOVED the free tokens that came along with the kids meals. 

We hit the road for our 10 hour drive home.
When we stopped at a gas station the kids were running from the car to the gas station with their hands over their ears. When I asked what they were doing they said that they were protecting them from the ear bugs. 

Getting a midnight snack.

We finally pulled into our driveway at 6 in the morning after a few more stops than anticipated thanks to extreme exhaustion.

It is good to be home!

Monday | Day 14

Still driving...

We ended up on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere with no cell service and Jacob with the most insane bloody nose I have ever seen. After it had been bleeding for about 30 minutes on the side of the road we realized that it wasn't stopping, jumped back into the car and headed towards the closest town we could find. It finally stopped after an hour. It was so crazy. Fortunately we got some medication for him from the emergency room in a little tiny town. They gave him juice, told us to have him rest and eat to replenish his body from the blood he lost and we hit the road. We made it to our hotel room really late, everyone that wasn't asleep already crashed right away.

Week 25 | Catch up.

June 16- Fathers Day. We were lucky and got to spend the morning with my dad and the afternoon with Joe's dad. The best of both worlds! More here.

June 17- Sutters Fort. More here.

June 18- Lazy day for most of us. More here.

June 19- Second trip to SF. This time with Auntie Re, Danny, Mom and Dad! Go Giants! More here.

June 20- Hanging at the park with the WaDaps. More here.

June 21- One final trip to SF. Third time is the charm. We finally got to do the sightseeing thing with the kids. It was fun to have the WaDaps along on this one. Nothing better than cousin time! :) More on the day here...

I did two from Friday because I didn't have a ton of amazing pictures from Saturday. I spent a lot of the day packing back up to leave and then we went to a wedding in the evening. There was a big Dapelo-Hughes gathering at the house that we missed. So sad...
