I want to see carhenge! But I don't think I'm up for a LONG road trip with kids.

I love the kids imitating Rushmore pose. I guess I need one more kid before we visit South Dakota!

You made it to St. Louis when you could have been in Louisville if only we had stuck around. I loved seeing the photo of you and the kids. I miss you. Anyway, I am very proud of you attempting and succeeding in this road trip. Maybe inspiration for us oneday? Maybe.

hahaha - I LOVE the picture of them looking at the Nauvoo temple! That's blow-up and frame worthy. And the Mt. Rushmore pic is hilarious! Can't wait to see more pix.

Great pics! Much more interesting than the normal point and shoot. You have such troopers to play along.
