Since Mark has some time off due to his fractured elbow, we decided that now was a good time to go visit all of the parents. I told him I didn't have a problem with going, but I would like to make it to your parents house before my birthday so I would not have to be sitting in a car all day. So we woke up on Wednesday (June 10) at 4:30 am and got the car packed and walked out the door at 5:45 am and started our journey.

First stop would be my mom's house in Brush, Colorado. So we took the I-70 and made a couple of stops. We arrived at 4:30 that afternoon. We hit a horrible thunderstorm with hail that made the road look like it was covered in snow. So much hail that the snow plows were out! While we were at my moms we were in a tornado watch. Crazy crazy! The visit with my mom was super fun and a way good visit.

We got back on the road at 9:00 am on Friday (June 12) and headed to where my step-mom Kris is living. She is currently in Rapid City, South Dakota. Only 20 min. from Mt. Rushmore, so we decided that we would stop and see what Taylor says, "the faces in the mt."

We had a wonderful time with Kris, she made us a wonderful dinner followed with a game of Yahtzee, which she won 3 out of the 4 games. We woke up on Saturday (June 13) and headed to my dad's which in Yankton, South Dakota. It was a pretty boring drive, pretty flat. I will post more in awhile.

Marks arm. First time out of the splint. Do you think that will leave a scar?
