1700 Miles, 1 Two-Year-Old

Scooter has posted pieces of our ND/MT/WY/SD trip, and I think intends to do yet more of it, so I am presenting the six-day trip from Eryn's perspective. Her grandparents are sure to like it, if no one else. All the images (and there are a lot of them) are clickable to a larger version.

[Leaving MN] We are driving in Mom's silver car. Hey, Dad is driving in Mom's silver car, too. Roar, roar! Wanna listen to "'Markable Cows!" Please! Want a sip of your pop, Mom. Go back to the start! Hey, black cows! Go back to the start! OH YES WE ARE COWS! EVER WE GO IT'S A FABUWOUS SHOW! OH YES WE ARE COWS! "Nobody Understands Me" is next! Want a sip of your pop, Dad.

Wow, that's a big buffalo!














Roar, roar! Big Bird is dancing. Now he is tired, he is going to rest. Hey, there's a tunnel! Roar!



[Jamestown, ND] Wanna ride the horsie! Want a sip of your pop, Mom. No, Eryn's diaper is fine.








[scream,stomp,scream] Wow, that's a big cow! Hey, it's windy up here! We are gonna go waaaay over there in our car. Wow, that's a big cow! [New Salem, ND]






[Sidney, MT] Hey, there's Allison! Hey, there's Oliver! Want to jump on Eryn's bed in our room. Want to jump on your bed too, Mom. No, Eryn's not sleepy.

Want some peanuts! Hey, there are mints! Want some mints! Want some juice! Hey, that's really good juice.













Want some cake. No, want her own! Hey, that's really good frosting. Throw Eryn up in the air, Dad! Throw Eryn up in the air! Throw
Eryn up in the air!...Boppa John, throw Eryn in the air! Hey, Oliver not give Eryn his motorcycle.



[Everywhere in South Dakota and Wyoming] Hey, motorcycles! That one looks kinda like Boppa John's. Those motorcycles are very loud! Want a sip of your pop, Mom. Want to listen to "Rhinocerous Tap!" No, go back to the start! Want to listen to "Pajama Time!" Want to listen to the one the name we can't remember! No, go back to the start!


Roar! Roar! The dinosaurs are kissing. Want a sip of your pop, Dad. Want to listen to "Rhinocerous Tap." No, go back to the start! Go back to the start again! Want to listen to the iPod! Please? Want to...hmmmm...want to listen to "Pickin' Wildflowers" on the iPod!


[Medora, SD] Want the pony! PLEASE! Want the big pony, Dad! Hey, there's a motorcycle! Want the blue one. Hm...want the motorcycle, like Boppa John's and Ollie's. Hey, that's a nice motorcycle.


Vroom, vroom, the dinosaur is riding Eryn's motorcycle. Oliver has a motorcycle and Eryn has a motorcycle. Want a sip of your pop, Dad. Want to listen to the iPod!


Hey, this is a big hill! We are climbing Debil's Tower. Want to climb on a big rock. Hey, there are snakes up here. Want to climb on a big rock. Hey, there are snakes up here. We are climbing Debil's Tower! Want to look over the edge. Wow, this is a big hill! Dad, carry Eryn.





No, Eryn just not want to go to sleep! [snore] Hey, a motorcycle woke Eryn up. Motorcycles are very loud. Want to swim in the swimming pool!

Vroom! Roar! Want to listen to "'Markable Cows!" Want a sip of your pop, Dad.

Hey, there are the four faces! Want to see the four faces! Want to go up there! Hey, that's a lot of steps! Hey, there are the four faces! That one is sad. Those ones are happy, and that one is sad.




Hey, there's a buffalo! Want to stand in line with Mom. Hey, that's really good ice cream. Dad not eat all of Eryn's chocolate ice cream! Hey, that's good ice cream. Dad not eat it all! Where are the four faces?



Hey, there's a teepee!




Hey, where is the tunnel? [snore]




We are going to our hotel. Want to swim in the swimming pool. [I don't think this hotel has a swimming pool, Honey.] Yes, they do! Yes they do! This one is Eryn's bed. Want to jump on her bed! Eryn is jumping on her bed! No, Eryn is not sleepy. [snore]

Tomorrow we will see the four faces. [Some day we will see the four faces again, Honey.] On Sunday we will see the four faces again! Want a sip of your pop, Mom.
