Saying goodbye after a wonderful week.
Mississippi River, along the Great River Road
Grandma and Livvi finding shells
Along Parley Street, which is the road you walk down to get to the Mississippi where the pioneers crossed on their way out of Navuoo, they have these quotes to read all along the way. It is called the Trail of Hope. This was by far my favorite quote.
One of our unplanned stops was at the American Gothic house- the real house that was the model for the painting. If only we had gone to the Art Institute in Chicago, we could have seen the original. We just happened to stumble on to this little place, and it was so cool!

Olivia called these Toy Story Clouds. They were so pretty.
North Platte, NE. Almost home
Our last hotel in Ogallala, NE. Audrey finally smiled for a picture.
We have the BEST family in the world. It was such a sweet time to spend with my folks and Mark and Lisa. The cousins had a blast, too. They are growing up so fast, and it makes me realize how important it is to get together as often as possible. Hope we get to see them again real soon.
