Your going where? And why?

The countdown is on for our summer road trip! These are the 2 questions I get asked "Where are you going?" and "Why are you going?". We are going to South Dakota! Why? Because we want to..lol. No we have been wanting to go out west for a while now and something always comes up.Plus Kain and Noah have been learning about Mt Rushmore and want to go see it. It's gonna be a long drive {25 hours one way} but we are going to break it up. We will be stopping in St Louis, Omaha, Sioux Falls and Custer. We are staying in Custer State Park with all the wild life:) I am hoping that even though we have a long drive.That when we get there we are able to have a nice relaxing vacation. Unfortunately the park does NOT have Internet access. So I will not be able to blog like I did from Disney:(
We are leaving June 23 and will be gone for 12 glorious days! My kids will probably do pretty good in the car. They have rode to Key West {16hours} and New York {13 hours} so I think they will be ok. Any tips for a really long car ride?
So where is your family going this summer?

Both of these pictures are from inside the park. The lake is where you swim. Doesn't it look beautiful?

That sounds like a great trip! I would love to go to S. Dakota. Being from the South, I have never been any place out west, other than Texas and New Mexico. Hope you guys have lots of fun & make wonderful memories!

What a gorgeous lake!!!!!!! I hope you guys have a wonderful time! I have no idea what we're doing yet...hoping to be able to get away at some point. Everything is so expensive right now though...hope we can figure something out that's not too out of there.

I think your hotel travel agent needs to go w/ y'all? I can be like a nanny or something..lol That is awesome y;all are doing that. I wish my family could handle a trip like that. Can't wait to go on it through the world of blogging...

I am going to WVA for the mission trip, Savannah w/ Eric and maybe camping labor day weekend in NC.. Sounds pretty exciting next to yours..lol

Have a great time!!!!!!!

Sounds like it will be awesome. You all know how to vacation, so you need no travel tips from me. Have a blast!
We are having people come to us, but may do Disney in August. We shall see.
