It was a freaking ten hour drive there and a ten hour drive back. Holy crap that was rough. The kids were great considering everyone has movies, ipods, phones and books to entertain them. I slept. Literally almost the entire way. Dave and Princess traded off driving and I enjoyed shotgun. Feet up, napping and sometime singing along with radio, sometimes just yakking with them.
I took a million pictures of the mountains for my mom. She's missing the mountains and since we moved over to the Badlands, I miss them too. It was just gorgeous! There was still snow on the ground in the Glacier National Park. It literally started snowing on us as we drove through the passes. Just unspeakable glory in God's work. I so wished I could live up in the mountains again.
They so enjoyed their shoot and now Dave and Duchess are signed up to do it in another part of the state in June. :) Since I'm still recovering, I can't with my shoulder until after August.
So Duchess and I were so excited to see that our hotel was literally in the very middle of a wonderful shopping area. Wally marty - check. Tons of food - check. Nails & Pedis - check. Target - check. Ross - check. We had a blast! And we walked about four miles in our shopping trip. Was truly exhausted and needed a huge nap.
We managed to squeeze in a late night Sat showing of "Heaven is for Real" and seriously, you need to see this movie.
The best part though, instead of dressing up in cute dresses and hunting eggs and etc.... we spent a part of our drive home reading the Easter story out of the bible and praying and talking together as a family. It was a beautiful thing. Such a blessing.
Now the laundry we came home with? Not such a beautiful thing. Crap.
