The Trip to Washington

I have been so out of the loop the past few weeks.  I never know the date (I almost forgot our 4 year anniversary!) and rarely know the day.  All of our days seemed to mash together into one extended day that consisted of continental breakfast, diaper changes in the front seat of the car and scouring the horizon for the next gas station when the fuel ran low.    Our trip was actually way more fun than I made it sound.  Bittersweet, but fun.

We spent a few days in KY and TN visiting our families and then we headed west.  Always west.  Some highlights of our trip included:

*visiting family
*visiting friends in Indiana
*taking Little Guy to the zoo in Chicago and eating deep dish
*Little House on the Prairie (fulfilling my childhood dream to visit)
*Wall Drug
*The Corn Palace
*Mt. Rushmore
*Custer State Park
*Devil's Tower
*Yellowstone

Here are a few picture highlights from the first part of our trip.  I'll post later about our adventures and everything that has happened since our arrival here in the sunny state of Washington.  Oh wait, I left the sun in the south.
