We've been spending a lot of time together...my fam and me...and I am LOVING the memories that we are making!
I'm downloading my photos from the last few days...not because I'm that extraordinarily organized, but because I need more room on my SD card! I was running out of space!
E.W's really come up with some cute phrases...the first was when I told him I thought maybe he had allergies, 'cuz he's been coughing (not a sick cough...and sneezing) a lot.
I neglected to mention the "sneezing" part, so he reminded me by saying, "And a lot of 'Bless You'in'"!! As we were coming into the "mountainous" part of South Dakota, we began talking about the "Black Hills".
My kids, who've never seen anything taller than a silo, really hadn't a clue about what to expect. So, the first hill we saw, E.W. pipes up, "Is that a black hill?!"
Man, I love that kiddo!
Then today, while driving Needles Highway, a couple of our kids got car sick, I nearly had a heart attack, and I became really bossy. "HUG THE MIDDLE LINE!!! ARRRGGGGHHHH!! HUG THE MIDDLE! SHOW THIS ROAD SOME PDA AND HUG THE MIDDLE!!!"
And, man alive! I am gonna have some fabulous travel tips to share!
I hope your weekend is going great! I feel out of the "blogging loop", since this place is a technological black hole! For real...I wonder if any of the locals even have cell phones...'cuz they don't work ANYWHERE!
Slight exaggeration...but not too far off! ;)
Now...I am off to enjoy a campfire with those of my children who are still awake. What I really want to do, is go to bed...but I'll be a good sport and sit in a chair and get smoke in my eyes. It's all in the name of "making memories"...
