Eastbound and down

We're 605 miles in to our 1,800 mile trip home. Thanks to Dave, the math guy, we know we're averaging about 59-60 miles an hour including stops, which is way better than the trip out. The boys have done very well with their potty breaks.

At my suggestion we had discussion time (did you really think one of the boys would suggest discussion time?!) during dinner (which we ate while driving to save time) when I asked everyone to share what their favorite part of the trip was. Steve, Dave, and Mike enjoyed the Rushmore ride. Jim liked the Spearfish ride with the waterfalls. I would have liked the Badlands the best if the ride wasn't so hot to get out there, and so I liked the Spearfish ride the best because it was cooler (temp) and the scenery was pretty.

It's now nap time for the boys, except Steve who is driving. Naps and driving don't mix. One-third down, two-thirds to go!
