The Road Trip

Hello! I don't have much time to write, but wanted to share some pictures from Mount Rushmore. The roadtrip went well. The kids were very good in the car, and Angie lost her patience, got crabby and then had to apologize to Andrea only once. Angie forgets how long everything takes when you're lugging little kids everywhere.

Mount Rushmore is beautiful. If you ever have a chance to see it, take that chance. Here are some pictures:

Wait, grrrrr! Why does blogger always download the pictures backwards and in the wrong order! Sorry, let's try this again.

First, here's my new niece. Isn't she pretty?
Big smile!
Spencer and Andrew at the entrance to Mount Rushmore.

This is the view from the Grand Terrace. It is grand.
A row of flags. There are the state flags from every state in the union flying here. Utah's was all wrapped tightly around it's pole so that you couldn't see it at all, just confirming to the rest of the nation that Utah is up-tight and a little odd.
There's a board walk that winds down closer to the mountain, and then circles back to the entrance. It's a beautiful walk through the trees.

While on the boardwalk, just about every view of the mountain looks right up Thomas Jefferson's nose.

My parents got into town today, and the big party for Sierra's graduation is tomorrow. So much fun. More next week.

This is on my life's to-do list. Thanks for the pictures!

And, I love it when Angie talks about herself in the third person. Awesome.
