Wind Cave National Park. Epic Road Trip. Day 18, 19, and 20

Guys. I have almost zero pictures of our last three days. I was so.freaking.tired. by the end of our trip. On our last day in South Dakota, and we still needed to check out Wind Cave National Park. The exhaustion though! I felt like I […]

Badlands National Park. Eclipse Day!

Day 17! Badlands National Park! I was so excited for this particular itinerary day, and it did not disappoint. After surviving the whirlwind of emotions the previous day, I woke up fresh faced and ready to go. Just kidding. I woke up the way all […]

Epic Road Trip. Day 15. Odell and Beef Jerky.

Epic Road Trip. Day 15. Odell and Beef Jerky.

Day 15 was basically a crap boring day of driving. Sometimes road tripping is not glamorous or instagram worthy. Maybe it’s like a metaphor for life. The drive from the Tetons to South Dakota took us about 9 hours. Liv was still under the weather […]

Grand Teton National Park. Epic Road Trip. Day 12.

It’s Paintbrush Canyon Sister Hike Day! Or more appropriately: the day Kirsten wanted to throw us off a mountain. I love hiking with the kids (mostly), but it is definitely slow and can get annoying pulling out snacks every 3 minutes. I was super pumped […]

Yellowstone National Park. Epic Road Trip. Day 11.

First day in Yellowstone! Our first day in yellowstone we drove up to see Old Faithful. It’s a totally original idea and we weren’t joined by 10,000 other impatient tourists. Driving into Yellowstone totally blew me away. I realize that it probably sounds strange but […]

Epic Road Trip. Day 10.

Our first morning here in Colter Bay was a bit a gloomy, but we managed to find a little adventure anyways. It was our first full day in the Tetons, so we relaxed and wandered the trails around our cabin area. We played in the […]

Epic Road Trip. Day 7.

We started our last day in Rocky Mountain National Park by being ‘those people”. My husband was slightly embarrassed and my kids were annoyed but we did manage to get one semi decent iconic photo with the park sign. Our plan for the day was […]
