I took 244 pictures over the past week.
Oh I'm sorry, didn't I tell you what we did this past week?
Our family of four packed up the car and drove for two days. We arrived in Arkansas, home of my dad and stepmom. We stayed for 3 days, and spent two days driving back home.
What can I say, it was a ball. The girls were incredibly well-behaved the entire way down, our greatest fear and a big reason why we hadn't made the trip earlier in their young lives. My dad expressed to me his concerns before we arrived that there wasn't "enough to do" at their place. He follows me on Facebook, he reads my blog, he knows how much we pack into our lives living in a metropolitan area like the Twin Cities.
We learned that all we really need is a few wooded acres and two big dogs.
If I had to sum up our experiences in one picture, this would be the one, of the 244 that I took.
It says everything about the week.
But of course, I can't leave it there, so more blog posts on the trip will be forthcoming. But this photo sums it up.
