We’re planning our summer vacation trip. Yeah, we have to plan now because my parents and a brother/his family want to go to Nauvoo, IL on our way back from Wyoming/Utah (where all my family lives, where our main vacation will be). So they have to get time off from work to plan the Nauvoo trip, so that’s why we’re looking at dates now. When you have 4 siblings and parents’ schedules to consider, it takes time to get it set up.
Anyway, our baby (ds2) will be one this summer.
The last long drive we took was the summer ds1 was turning one. We drove to Yellowstone.
We live on the east coast.
Long ways away.
And for some reason, we decided to drive all that way again. Either the pain and anguish of the last trip have worn off or we really are crazy.
Hey! I went to college not too far from there. Are you mormon by chance? We are not and that is a huge missionary deal there. We got the Book of Mormon talk in about 5 little houses before we all agreed, that in the next place, if they ask, we’ll all say we are Mormon to avoid the speech again. So, we walk in, they ask us if we are Mormon and we all say “yes” except for Joe–who say’s “No”! We had to hear the whole talk about the Book of Mormon ALL OVER AGAIN! We nearly killed him!!! It was a hoot.
It is a cool place to go, though. Very historical on many levels. Have fun!!!

LOL at the Book of Mormon speech!!! I read this to dh and he was cracking up 😀
Yeah, we are Mormon but haven’t been there yet…our dd has, but dh and I haven’t. I’m looking forward to it.
Yes, you are definitely crazy! Or at least a glutton for punishment. lol 🙂

“Either the pain and anguish of the last trip have worn off or we really are crazy.”
Probably a little of both. 🙂 Either way, I know you all will have fun together.

I think that’s what we took back most from the last trip…how much fun we did have. Kinda like being pregnant…the memories of the aches and pains fade away (at least until the next pregnancy).
You are brave! My next door neighbors are from Utah (they are Morman as well) and travel frequently from here (Nebraska) to visit their families. . .I don’t know how they do it with three kids under the age of 5. Over TG my husband and I took our 7 month old at the time to Colorado and I am still recovering. :p P.S I tagged you! 🙂

Ouch…3 kids under 5? I’d pass on that trip. I’m not quite that brave (or crazy).
