Continuing across the country. We stayed the night in Columbia, Missouri and decided to just drive the heck out of that next day. Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa...we probably touched at least the border of all these states. We made it to South Dakota and decided to keep driving to Fort Ellsworth, an Air Force Base. So we drove and we drove and we drove. We made it to Fort Ellsworth and stayed the night in their fantastic lodging facility--seriously--it was awesome.
We got up early the next morning, grabbed breakfast and then headed to Mount Rushmore. Cue the photo overload!
After probably two hours there we hit the road (just in time because a tornado touched down outside of Sioux Falls) and drove and drove until we reached Montana. Jeff was super anxious to get home so we kept going until we made it back into Helena around 10:30 p.m. that night. We slept in, worked out, and the loaded up to go to Great Falls and get the boys. Overall it was a good trip, a fun trip, but
we were SO glad to be back home and not staying in a hotel or eating gas station food.
