I figured I better write about last 4th of July before the next one approaches. And, at the speed which the year is flying by already, I'd say that's right around the corner.
|What a great view!|
|Here we are! Holy crap, my family is huge!|
|Me with the kids.|
(Notice the little girl in the bottom left corner.
Several times that day, I thought she was our Destini.)
|Here we are with the father of our country, George Washington.|
Wait, where's Ethan? (Did you even notice?)
The amazing photographer said she had everyone in the shot.
Thank goodness I didn't pay for this. Haha!
|Jett was getting so tired and it felt great to be in the shade with dad.|
Notice the puppy "backpack" he's wearing.
He's an adventurer and likes to wander.
This way he doesn't wander too far!
|This guy was done.|
He didn't even care to stay awake for some good pizza.
I better add: the entire funding for the blasting is all from donations and there's been a good change since I was last there. BUT, because of cost, and the final size of the monument, I'm not even sure if this thing will be done in my lifetime. No matter though. It was still really cool to see the progress, which was noticeable, (because of the progression pictures they have on the wall). The gift shop was cool and, of course, the kids wanted to blow every penny they brought with them. It's so hard to teach control while on vacation. Many times we opted for the "squished penny" keepsake.
|It turned overcast very quickly after lunch and I|
wasn't able to get a good picture of the mountain.
You'll have to settle for the scale model on the patio.
|Jett hangin' out in the sling.|
"It's so nice to see you carrying your baby in that and not on one of those dog leashes."
My quick response was,
"Well then, it's probably good we didn't run into each other at Mt. Rushmore."
'Mom-of-the-Year', right here, folks!
|Round 2. I would say this vacation was kicking his booty|
but he was sick almost every single night we were there.
There's more to that later....
Ok. There you go. Another installment of our life that passed by so long ago. I really have a ton more to update, and I think I'm finally feelin' my mojo. This could be good people!
Thank you to everyone who's patient with me, and I hope you still enjoying reading it.
