FYI, I have been out of state on a long road trip for the past month (I DO have an excuse :-)
I wrote this the other day to give you a small idea of what our road trip looked like...
Our road trip in alphabetical order
A is for our aunts we saw namely, Lorainne, Ruth, Mary, Geri, and Sharon
B is for Boise Idaho, the first place we stopped
C is for Cody, Wyoming, the “Rodeo capital of the world” (and yes we did go to a rodeo while we were there)
D is for driving the whole way (more than 5,000 miles!)
E is for eating, usually at a picnic table, at a rest stop
F is for the (MANY) fields we passed, full of cows and corn
G is for gratefulness, thank you to all those who helped in any way
H is for heights, at Milner Pass we were at an elevation of 10,759 feet
I is for Inns, in which we stayed over night
J is for joy, which was seen often
K is for Kansas, we spent 4 days there with my aunt and her family
L is for loneliness, which did not exist on our trip :-D
M is for Minnesota, the main point of our trip, my mom grew up there and so we stayed with her sister for a week
N is for names, they are so hard to remember, especially when you haven’t seen that person in 10 years!
O is for “Oh, look!!!”, which preceded almost everything we said while driving down the road
P is for pools, most of the hotels had them so we went swimming a few times
Q is for questions, for many were asked on the trip
R is for Mt. Rushmore, we stayed overnight in a place that you could see 2 of the heads from the window
S is for sightseeing, like the Badlands, Rocky Mountain Nat’l Park, Mt. Rushmore, etc.
T is for tales to tell; funny, exciting, and sad
U is for Utah, one of the many places we stayed
V is for van; believe it or not, we only brought one 7 passenger van for 6 people and their stuff on a 24 day driving trip!
W is for Wall drug, they have signs from 365 miles away!!!
X is for x (believe it or not), one of the easiest letters to find when playing the letter race game in the van, just look for an exit sign!
Y is for Yellowstone National Park, we saw 3 bears, more than 150 buffalo, more than 50 elk, and a mountain goat!
Z is for Zack’s birthday, which happened while we were in Cody
