Wyoming: Part 1

I'm not sure how many "Parts" there will be for this vacation, but I sure have a lot of photos; so we'll see!

Our journey out west began on Friday morning, June 30th. Before too long, two of the kids looked like this. . . IMG_2070

Our first goal was Fairmont, MN, where we met up with Papa, Gaga, and Tom. After a night's rest, we were back on the road in the morning.

Our van got pretty messy from all of the bugs and dirt. The kids were happy to do a little cleaning during one of our stops!

While driving through South Dakota, we stopped at the tourist destination known as Wall-Drug. There must have been two hundred signs for this place along our drive! The kids each got a photo on the Jackelope.
