My family recently did the Griswolds’ thing and drove to Montana for a family vacation.
We drove from Texas.
(that in and of itself should be impressive)
Three days to get there.
Three days to get back.
Through seven different states.
Worth every hour on the road.
My husband and I put this family vacation WAY high on the list of favorites. (My boys may disagree, simply because the last three days–with nothing planned but hard 8-12 hour driving–really shrouded the good memories of the trip. I know, though, as they forget the boring drive home, they will begin to remember the highlights of the trip. And there were many!)
Here’s a short list of some of our adventures:
We visited new friends in Montana and ate some of the best steak ever.
We drove to Wyoming, more than once–more on that soon.
We hung out Yellowstone–we saw lions and tigers and bears. Oh my!
(Okay, we didn’t see lions and tigers.)
We hiked in Teton National Park–I didn’t pack the proper shoes, so I hiked in flip-flops…
We stopped at every state sign and took a picture. (See picture above.) My boys were THRILLED every time we stopped. Thrilled, I tell ya!
We had F.U.N., fun!
I’ll unpack our trip over the next few posts, if I may.
