Road trip across country, west to east and back again
The trip was awesome and our best across country trip yet, no sickness or any major drama (except I did accidentally black out and drive us all into Canada without our passports whilst viewing Niagara Falls, we got back over the border though.)
After hours (sometimes 8 hours a day) in the car, I found creative ways to get out my kids wiggles. Rock climbing gyms or walls can be found in most cities. This gym is in Minneapolis. I would also hit the pool of course at our hotel.
Here our kids are dancing in a sweet church in Kansas where the kids outnumber the adults, not something you often find in the west coast. It feels so vibrant and alive to experience such a common joy in parenting and worshiping God together with our children. I loved my time in Kansas.
We ended our trip in the Grand Canyon, for my birthday. The sense of vastness is so enriching for us all ( I am just glad we didn't loose Ezekiel over the edge.
