We were at the cottage for the last three days. It was a lot of fun. When we first arrived Ellie and I right away wanted to do our row boats. So my mom and dad assembled them. They were EXTREMELY hard to row. That night we went to a Fourth of July party a […]

My favorite kindle apps

Today we just drove so most of what I did was play on my kindle. I am going to name five of my favorite games. The first game is cookie jam. I like it because the game is in a french bakery. My second favorite is Yeti Slide. I like it because it is a […]

Day 30

We did it! We made it across the country and back to our home! Thirty days. So many laughs. Some tears. Memories that will last forever.

Pretty much the middle of nowhere, just fields and mountains surrounding us. Most of the drive was along the Yellowstone River, nearly the exact same route William […]

Drive to Glendive

We’re officially on the way home. One of the downsides to booking hotels in advance is there’s less flexibility in where we end on any given day. We had initially planned on spending more time in Yellowstone this morning, but decided that we’d had enough of the stupid people and didn’t have time for a […]
