On The Road Again....

When I was growing up in Washington state, our family would travel to Brainard Mn during our summer vacations. We almost always stopped to take a picture at this very monument in North Dakota. I was driving at sunset when I remembered this was the place! I pulled off and called the kids out to snap this shot. Sadly there were no buffalo except for the many chips on the ground.

People ask us how we travel together with our kids. We just have to point to our crew cab long bed Ford with the make shift sleeping loft in the back and then they understand. Here is Beth and Tia working on their homeschooling project for the day. You can just see Eli's elbow next to Tia.

The kids enjoyed tending a fire for a few days with Grandpa. Grandpa is a great mentor for fishing, hunting, and everything to do with camping and mountain activities.

Here we are relaxing at Grandma and Grandpa's house in Chewelah WA. They live up on one of the beautiful mountains surrounding the valley. We had no phone or Internet access. Gove finally mentioned how difficult it was to look something up and have to drive into town to use the web. I found it rather peaceful.

Grandpa and Grandma took the kids fishing. Mattia caught a Rainbow Trout (that's the biggest) Eli caught a German Brown, and Bethany caught two small Rainbow Trout. They didn't taste to bad either considering I don't like fish.
