Road trip!

My lack of posts on here is totally inexcusable, but trust me when I tell you that I've been busy. On Saturday June 23rd my family and I piled into our Ford E350 and started driving. 17 days and 5500 miles later we're home again! It was such a fun trip, and I wanted to share some of the highlights with you.

All packed and ready to go!

JoJo in the Badlands.

The (very friendly) wild donkeys at Custer State Park.

The rolling hills were so beautiful! You could see for miles.

Elias with Old Faithful. 

The Grand Tetons were incredible at this time of day.

I was super excited to personally visit one of my favorite online stores while in Utah.

Besides the pools, Las Vegas was horrid. I honestly see no attraction to that place. The pools were nice though.

We girls at The Grand Canyon.

Kids can only take so many pictures before we break down laughing.

And it doesn't take much more for the laughter to turn to tears.
(I think about 1/2 of us are crying in this picture).
We had a wonderful time at a family reunion in Oklahoma before we headed home.
(Well, all of us that didn't have a stomach bug).

We even managed to almost find all 50 US license plates on our drive. Yes, even Hiwaii. West Virginia was the only one that we missed. Odd, isn't it, that we found Hawaii but not West Virginia, one of our bordering states?

I'm so grateful that we were able to take this trip! I've made a ton of memories, and learned a lot of new things. And to think that summer's not even over yet! Sunday night I'm off to Choral Camp at Rosedale Bible College! It will be my first year to go as a counselor. Check back in to see how that goes.


Bible Verse: Psalm 104:24 (KJ21) O Lord, how manifold are Thy works! In wisdom hast Thou made them all; the earth is full of Thy riches.

    Sarah, LOVED that you posted highlights of your trip! (I've heard that assessment of Las Vegas, too btw). I'm so happy you had the chance to experience God's creation.

  2. Love the pictures! Thanks for sharing, Sarah!

  3. Sarah, excellent job! I really think the picture where 1/2 of you are laughing and the other 1/2 crying should be the family Christmas card this year - it's priceless! Have a great time at camp - the kids will love you!

  4. Looks like a great trip, Sarah! I love the laughing and crying pictures. It's hard work getting a nice picture of that many people, isn't it? Hope you have a great time at camp too.

  5. Thank you, everybody! I had a great trip!

  6. You were only a few states away from us! I recognize that spot at the Grand Canyon from when we were there! Love pictures!
