Getting There

Alright, for the sake of really getting caught up, here is another photo dump! These pictures are from different parts of our road trip to Seattle.


These first few are from Bear Country USA. The rules were no opening windows and we gladly complied so please excuse the reflections or window spots in the pictures.

There is a bear scratching his back on that tree stump. 

Instantly brought this song to my mind:

Just walking by

Crossing in front of us

And getting SUPER close to the car!

Taking a sandwich break. (The red glare is from the window)

Then we moved on to Mt. Rushmore
Got Washington's profile

Coming into the Rockies

Stopped at a scenic stop off alongside the Rockies

Getting some air time

Posing for their rap album cover

Stopped to see the Columbia River

This picture makes me laugh. Look at Shuky's beard to truly understand how windy it was here.

North Carolina

While going through the pictures on my SD card to post about our road trip, I realized I never really posted any pictures from our Pesach trip either and I had some really cute ones to share, so while I finish going through my newer files, I will share a bunch of pictures from March/April. Enjoy!! Quick reminder, we drove out to Raleigh, NC to be with Shuky's mother and step-father and a handful of siblings. Had a great time!

Fish cloud!

A lot of this on the drive

And a lot of this

A rock slide

Huge pile-up, blocking an entire direction of the highway

Luckily we were on the other side

The beginning of the traffic jam

Ten miles later, it still looked like this.

At a science museumy place we went to. Love Benny's expression!

A simulated tornado. Obviously had to drag Benny away from this one.

Watching a weather station. This kid.

In a space capsule

You can see him in the little window up top

They had fun commanding missions

This cool screen. Standing in front of it made it look like all these small particles were falling on you and pouring over your arms. Can't think of a better way to describe it. Benny looks pretty powerful in this shot though.

Me and Benny joining forces.

Bringing in a small head of curls for reinforcements.

One cool llama. 

As big as this spider looks, it was MUCH bigger. And there was no glass/cage/wall around it. The spiders were apparently not at flight risk.

Took some cute pictures of the kids enjoying the back yard. The grass and trees and rocks and branches and everything that was not concrete had them so excited!

Tattooed baddie.

Tiny little "ravine" that he was studying

''Too windy!"
