On our last day, we went hiking at Cache Creek. It was beautiful, perfect weather. Abby was able to be off leash the whole time. Luke got a nap. And we hiked 4 miles total.

And Peggy and Brian introduced us to Thai food. . . yellow curry and pad thai –> awesome!

Luke enjoyed bath time with Finn every night. . .

And our road trip back to MN was thankfully uneventful. . .

Abby continued to pretend that she was not sleeping. .  IMG_3723IMG_3724IMG_3725IMG_3726

We stopped at the 1st rest stop ever constructed in WY in 1966. (Scott requested that I share that tidbit of information with you. Winking smile) And Luke swung in his first swing. . .

And went down his first slide. . .

Abby didn’t want to be left out either. . .

Final Starbucks stop of the trip . .. .  unfortunately, 10 miles down the road, I realized that it was horribly burnt and not even drinkable. . . #fail IMG_3774IMG_3775

Luke did really well in the car on the way home. 10 hours on the first day and 9 hours on the second day. . . the last hour of the second day was not fun, but we survived.

Overall it was a really nice road trip! Thanks again to Peggy and Brian for meeting us in WY and making the trip worth it. Smile Nice to be back home. . . although the amount of laundry to be done is a little ridiculous! Hope you are having a great weekend.
