A wonderful sentiment to start the day. When your 4 year old is blowing on dandelions and making a wish on the way to the camp park while wearing her rockstar sunglasses hoping to become a Disney Princess, it’s a suitable wish. Maybe even better is when Jack and then Katie carefully crawled into bed with us in the pre-dawn hours. I guess we need to keep the RV cold so the kids have to be extra nice to us. Jack was so careful and gentle coming back into the bedroom I didn’t actually think it was him at first. But he just crawled in and got cozy under the covers, joined by his sister a little later. Jen actually made me take a picture it was so cute and out of the ordinary for us.
Yesterday was a good day all around. Easy travel, good weather and beautiful sights. We got to the Badlands – which are not bad, in fact one of my favorite places. Interesting landscape and huge skies – incredibly western. Only downside, large drop-offs and few railing which makes for somewhat jumpy parents. Everyone did great and we eventually found our way to our campsite near Mt Rushmore. A KOA smack dab between Rushmore and Crazy Horse. Best one to date with tons of activities. Despite being squeezed in like sardines among all of the bikers leaving Sturgis, it’s been relaxing, especially since we are staying in one place for more than a night.
