Driving anywhere for more than a few minutes with this gang can be a bit of a challenge, but thankfully Nana and Bopa decided to fly to Dickinson and help me drive down instead of meet us there.
I don't think I was the only one grateful for this. Here's our "quick" bathroom break (Ha! As if anything is "quick" with 5 kiddies!):
Quick picture op at the "geographical center of the United States" in Belle Fourche, South Dakota. Still can't completely wrap my head around that one, but it's a cool, shiny plaque with flags from every state! And why is Dude off by himself? Because he "wanted to point to Texas" instead of to where we actually were. Naturally.
And yes, we were wearing coats in July. A freaky cold spell surprised us with 50 degree weather the whole trip. So weird! Thanks North (and South) Dakota for keeping us on our toes!
