Today was a big driving day. We got up early and drove and drove and drove until we got to Blue Earth, Minnesota. There, we saw a huge statue of the Jolly Green Giant! Since we had an 8 hour drive ahead, we got back on the road and finally made it to Mitchell, South Dakota where we saw the Corn Palace :-P

While driving through South Dakota, we saw a big statue of a man walking a dinosaur! It was neat so we jumped the fence and went to see it. It was getting dark but was still fun! Eventually we made it to the Badlands. It was so cool at night because it looked like we were on Mars or something! We found a campsite in Interior which was a nice type of ranch and most importantly had warm showers :] We wish we could've stayed longer because they had a lot of cool things to do there like horseback riding through the Badlands. But we had leave the next morning to get to Mount Rushmore!

I am in spirit with you! MaMa
Love catching up to your travel blog. It is 11;35 here and Heather is trying to get some money to Josiah who is stuck in Virginia and can't get back because he ran out of money. And he has my Miata!! Anthony my Assistant at Marist is here working with Heather. Jorden did a great job working all night to clean things before Anthony got here. I am at work on the ms. Jorden just came by and I asked if he would make a grilled ham and cheese sandwich as part of his working. Then he is going to paint. Anthony is going to both paint and dig a trench for Heather. Aren't you all glad you are traveling the country? Love to you all - MaMa
