Those that have followed me are probably wondering what I need a vacation for. After all, I have been home a total of 12 days in the past 4 weeks. Now it will be 12 days in 5 weeks. My husband has not been with me, this is not work related and we need a vacation!
This trip has been talked about and planned for over a year. It began after I sadly chose bedroom carpet and wood floors in 4 rooms over that year’s vacation.
I was blessed with parents who chose vacation. I was also well-trained for vacation, I can fall asleep in a car immediately after the engine starts. I love picnic lunches and purchasing postcards and trinkets at tourist traps. I have genetic wander-lust!
My husband’s family did not do much of this while growing up and unfortunately we did do this at all with our kids.
Therefore, I am on a mission to take a week’s vacation, with my husband, to some of the places I went to as a child.
Today is Day One and the destination is Mount Rushmore. Yes, 15 hours by car to see 4 past presidents chiselled in stone. It does sound like Clark’s quest to see Marty Moose. We did rent an SUV, but I will still be on the look out for Christy driving a fancy red sports car.
I am also keeping a look out fun attractions as we make our way to an AirBnB in Osage, Iowa and looking forward to dinner at a smokehouse that has had great reviews.
