On the Road Again

photo-8.jpgAs much as we wanted to stay in South Dakota it just wasn't an option, so we eventually hit the road again and headed home.
photo-11.jpgPeople are always curious as to how we pack all of our children and our belongings in our vehicle. I don't how we did it, but it seems like we had more room on the way home. You can actually see out the back window, which wasn't the case on the way out.
_MG_4225.jpgWith word of blizzard conditions on our usual route home we stayed north as long as we could and even crossed the Missouri river. How pretty is that?
photo-12.jpgIt doesn't take much to keep our children entertained. Books on CD (The Chronicles of Narnia this time) and some cowboy boots do just the trick.
photo-13.jpgWe finally hit some snow on our very last stop in Chugwater, Wy. This was actually the worst of it. From here on out the roads were pretty clear. There was just a small amount of snow coming down and the roads were just wet until we were a few miles from home.
photo-14.jpgWe came home to this. My husband won't pull into the driveway until it's been shoveled. We don't want ice patches later.
photo-15.jpgThere was quite a bit of snow in our neighborhood. No blizzard though. 
photo-16.jpgWith half the driveway shoveled we were happy campers to be back at home again after 10 1/2 hours in the car.
It's been 2 weeks since Luke's funeral. Please continue to keep Rick and Katie in your prayers.

I'm glad you made it home safely :) Your kids look all cozy in the car, too.

I'm so sorry for the circumstances that caused your trip, but I'm glad you had such a nice time visiting with family! I've enjoyed reading your posts about it. And I'm sure Rick & Katie found some comfort in your being there for them :)
