Day of firsts

Gosh, today was a day of firsts. . .

Luke’s 1st bad hair day


my 1st time trying a this smoothie place (yummy!)


Luke’s 1st road trip


Luke and Abby’s 1st time to South Dakota


Luke’s 1st Happy Meal – chicken nuggets – most ended up on the floor. . . he loved the apple slices though..  .


Car snacks for the road. . . my 1st time having this trail mix from Target (dark chocolate espresso – yum!)


Spent some time hanging with Luke and Abby in the back seat. . .


they were both super excited. . .


And Scott and I had some fun in the front seat during nap time. . .


My 1st time not giving my traffic engineer husband a hard time about taking pictures of traffic signs on our vacation. . . <sigh>


And both babies settled right in at the hotel. . .


Overall a really great travel day. Spent about 8 hours on the road with only one stop! Luke got super fussy about 30 minutes away from our final stop of the night and of course fell asleep about 10 minutes away from the hotel. But otherwise he did really well. Abby too! He got to watch “TV” (via Netflix Instant Play on the iPad) for the 1st time too- an episode of Veggie Tales!

On our way to Wyoming tomorrow with a stop planned at Mount Rushmore!

      we went once before a few years ago and it was much more impressive than I thought it would be. . . looking forward to seeing it again!

  2. 8 hours with a baby and a dog with only 1 stop is pretty impressive!

    Yay road trips! Looks like both baby and dog are dealing with the journey pretty well. Have fun at Mount Rushmore!

  4. I love Berry Blendz! They bought out my favorite local smoothie shop in Fort Collins (Colorado), but they kept all the smoothies the same…so I stayed loyal. I was a big fan of Jazzberry.
