On the Home Stretch

I have a hankerin’ for fresh produce.   I can deal with noisy hotels, uncomfortable beds, and the daily State changes, but I sure miss wholesome food.  I plan on handling this issue better in the future, a cooler for road trips.   It would be a pain to haul it into a different hotel every day, but so worth it!

In all honesty, I wish this trip would last longer.  The family time has been invaluable, the sights spectacular and experiences memorable.  Going home means: yard work, house work, complaints of boredom, and giving the hubs back over to his career.  The very Career that made this trip possible.   So I will hand him over with the anticipation of the next great adventure. 

We round out our trip with a visit to Yellowstone National Park, stopping first in Idaho Falls.

The Hubs ate at this Smitty's when he was young on the way to Yellowstone.
By far the best meal of our trip.

 Idaho Falls

This was I made the kids be cool with it:)

The REAL reason we are here!

Not gonna lie, Old Faithful is getting less faithful over the years, but well worth the wait!

What do you do after a long day of driving...throw rocks at each other.  That's what you do, right? It's not just us?!?

This, we could not resist.  Over priced and very much like a CARA Rodeo, we still enjoyed the evening. Sadly for the Hubs, no bulldoggin'.  

This kid was a cutie...entertaining us many times throughout the events.

Coffee: Rodeo Style.
