Some days are great, others are not...but no matter what twists and turns I encounter, you can be sure I'm going to write about it!

The Black Hills

Growing up, my family didn't take many vacations. We went on a Disney cruise which I'm sure cost my parents a fortune...spent some time in Florida here and there..but that was really it. My brother and I were able to go to summer camp a couple of times, but nothing too extravagent.

As thankful as I am for the sacrifices my parents made to afford me with a few good times, I am going to attempt to one-up them :) I am going to make an effort to take one road trip a year to a new state, place, park, etc. This year...myself and little man are packing our bags and heading to The Black Hills. I'm pretty stoked. I've never been to Mount Rushmore, and have heard from various peeps that there's a lot of fun things to do!! I hope it turns out to be as lovely as I'm picturing it in my head!

Either way, it will be a memory made.

Does anyone else think I'm crazy for voluntarily taking a 3 year old on a five+ hour road trip?

  1. It will be lots of fun! The black hills too! God I love the jewelry that comes from that place. The hell with Mt. Rushmore, hit the jewelry store. =) I mean, look at it out the window on the way to the jewelry store.
