Day 9 can be described in two words…….. SOUTH DAKOTA!
a lot of driving by corn fields……. A LOT OF DRIVING BY CORN FIELDS!
I told Josh, that I am convinced NO ONE lives in South Dakota. But there is one reason I find the state somewhat endearing. …..:)
See picture below:
And as we were driving on a small country road, Josh attempted to “sample” or “borrow” an ear of corn from a local field. It wasn’t ripe. :( I guess it serves us right for trying to get an unoffered freebie.
Then we made the cross over into….. my homeland. :) I was born in Minnesota. And while it has a special place in my heart, the mosquitoes that are in abundance in this state make me firmly state: I AM A CALIFORNIA GIRL!
Of course our trip has had it’s share of potty breaks. Between pregnancy bladder and the potty needs of a 5 year old and 2 year old we have had frequent stops.South Dakota has all of ……. maybe……. one rest stop…… so this was required. :)
That evening we arrived at Mount Carmel for the family reunion. It is nice to have 5 days of NO driving. More posts to come on the fun we are having here.
