The Family "Vacation"

The trailer was packed...

We had plenty of snacks... And in-flight entertainment. We were on our way! But then, disaster struck!

Even riding in a tow truck didn't impress us anymore.When we found out we had to stay we were sad.

But then we remembered that it's all a big adventure.

So we decided to make the most of it. We saw the sights...

Took a couple of tours...

Played around some...

And even took a couple of good naps.

But then Butte got old and we were ready to leave.

Luckily, with a few well placed tears our car was finished before we had to spend another week in this lovely town and we were on our way!

We did the fastest trip through Yellowstone ever,

We didn't even stop long enough to get a decent family picture at Old Faithful

Drove almost straight through to South Dakota (narrowly averting death twice!)

And stopped to check in with the kangaroos at Roo Ranch.

After a quick visit with an old friend we finally made it and started to settle in.

Welcome to the Raspberry House!

Trying this again

I've been wanting to start a blog for awhile and just wasn't sure if I was really into it. So this is me, testing the waters. I started another and then remembered that I had wanted to name my blog Chiconky. It's late and I'm stuck in Butte, cut me some slack. So let's give this a shot and see how it goes.
