These are just a couple of pictures of us on our way from Utah to PA. We didn't stop to site see very much since it was a long trip, but a few stops we did make were fun. First Colter loved the big yellow moving truck, so we let him ride in it for a couple of hours. He DID NOT want to give it back to Penske when we were done.

We stopped in Nebraska and had lunch at this World War II Veterans Memorial. WOW, that was humbling. I don't know if it had anything to do with my G-pa Joker, but when we were there, my heart was just so filled. I am so thankful for the men and women who fought for our country.
Colter loved this. We got to go inside an actual railroad car. He thought it was so cool that he got to turn the wheel and be the driver. We also went to Winter Quarters where the pioneers settled in Omaha. They had a statue that hit me like a ton of was a mother and a father huddled in a blanket getting ready to bury there child who did not survive the winter. I looked at it and instant tears were in my eyes. I could not even imagine. I would have taken pictures, but having a three year old in this kind of a place that was extremely tired of being in the car, I forgot, but it still was for the most part an enjoyable place to visit.
