Road Trip day 8

We awoke on Wednesday morning and ate some breakfast
Lily prefers Marshmallow Mateys.Jake would rather sleep in

We left Austin, MN and headed in the direction of home. We decided to take it a little slower on the way back and stop at a few national parks and touristy spots. Thanks Lisa for the national parks pass! Because our trip consisted of a whole lot of rest stops, I took a few pictures when we made it to South Dakota and stopped for lunch.

Lily, hamming it up for the camera

We finished lunch and headed back on the road again. Lily stole Jacob's blanket and he was screaming. But look at the smile on her face. You can cause a lot of trouble when you are strapped in a car-seat.Jake fell asleep like this and we couldn't stop laughing. In all fairness we may have been car-delusional at this point.

We finally made it to the badlands

The boys checking out some fossils.

After checking out the Badlands and National Grasslands, we stopped at Wall Drug. We weren't going to stop, but we were glad we did because the kids LOVED it. So silly really. We couldn't pull them away when it was time to go.
Jacob and Tyler both loved the giant Jackal-ope. Who wouldn't? Tyler being a goofJust plain awesome.
