Dividing his snacks (and candy from Cinqo de Mayo) into daily allotments.

4,117 miles and who knows how many $$ later....

We had a great vacation! There was just enough family time. It went sooooo much better than expected! We had breakfast at the hotel, sandwiches for lunch and dinner out. Everyone had a snack box and no one ran out!

We visited Glacier, Yellowstone, followed the Lewis and Clark Voyage of Discovery (although it was deemed too boring to listen to), the Tetons (shrouded in clouds), Mt Rushmore, the Badlands, Wall Drug and many little points in between!

The kids' money lasted longer than I thought it would. I'm surprised there's a rock left to purchase in the West.

We got to visit with Kurt's parents on our way home so that was a bonus ending to our journey.

We are back from family vacation out west. We are exhausted. We have no food and no clean clothes!

Stay tuned!
