Road trip–2013–Jackson–last days and back to MN


Watching the kids went really well. . . surprise plates and ice cream!


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.


car snacks helped.. . Smile 


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.
