on our road trip: a small update...

We've been slightly busy for the last several days. Okay, very busy. Pretending to jump off cliffs while posing for a camera that is perched on the corner of a random bench is just the beginning.

Jumping off cliffs.

(Everyone grins while jumping off a cliff. Obviously.)

Jay and I have been enjoying our fair share of excitement - including, but not limited to: exploring caves, searching the plains for bison and other feral creatures, eating entirely too much Chex Mix, drinking too much Red Bull (best when paired with Vodka and Costco muffins), driving slightly over the speed limit, listening to the most recent Lil' Wayne album much more than necessary, having a few arguments due to being confined in a small space for long periods of time, learning to love each other despite said arguments (and a certain husband's love of the most recent Lil' Wayne album), tromping through snow, seeing Mt. Rushmore and thinking, "Huh. It looks just like the postcards. That's a little disappointing.", being entirely too excited about seeing gophers and deer, getting lost in a national park, falling in love with our GPS, hanging out with some family members that basically make me want to move to rural Minnesota just so I get to hang out with them more often, and, of course, being cold (but not too cold).

Oh, and we were able to snuggle with some of the cutest children in all of humanity:


More updates to come once we're at a hotel that has sufficient internet! Montana is definitely not up to par.


  1. So much to comment on!

    Sounds like an amazing trip! I'm going to the Lil' Wayne concert with Cadillac Fondue guy in a few weeks! How's the CD? I only know the popular songs :)
