America, here we come!

Alright, that’s a little dramatic I know, but the trip we’re about to embark upon warrants some fanfare. Sean gets a sabbatical every 5 years at his company. However, this will be the only time it is for 8 weeks and we’re taking every advantage of it. We’ll be spending 5.5 weeks on the road with our two munchkins travelling from Washington DC and meandering our way back to Seattle.

Here’s the plan:

Washington, DC
Gettysburg, PA
Reading, PA
Philadelphia, PA
New York, NY
Cooperstown, NY
Mexico, Oswego, NY
Niagara Falls, ON, CA
West Mifflin, PA
Washington, PA
Stoystown, PA
Hurricane, WV
Cincinnati, OH/Chillicothe
Cridersville, OH
Chicago, IL
Springfield, IL
Kansas City, KS
Keystone, SD
Custer, SD
Yellowstone, WY
West Glacier, MT
Coeur d’Alene, ID
Seattle, WA
Everett, WA

If that looks like a lot of stops, that’s because it is. Did I mention we’ll have our two munchkins in tow? Let me remind you of what that looks like. I’m pretty sure potty trained Cora will need a lot more stops, and wiggle worm Harlan will like to… well you know. I’m going to get off my butt and get a cool graphical version of our trip up soon. In the meantime, just stories and silly pictures.

    • We sure did! I had been once before when I was doing a service trip with some Rice students to a Lakota reservation. I had a very different lens on when I visited Rushmore and Crazy Horse (and a lot less time). This time with the kids and Sean, we could take in the culture and the physical beauty of those two monuments as well as the visit to Jewel Cave.
