Are you sick of hearing about all of our travels yet?

Well, sorry. I know its been over a month since we have done most of the things I am posting about lately but I promise I am almost done. In twenty years I'm sure I would regret not having written these things down so just bear with me. :)

Another detour we took on our road trip home was to Mt. Rushmore. We were both super anxious as we drove up the mountain to the monument. Both of us kept hoping that when we saw the monument we wouldn't be disappointed. You know when you have a picture in your mind of what you think something is going to be like and it turns out nothing like what you imagined and you end up super disappointed? Well, that was our worry. But that quickly went away when this came into view: 

It did not disappoint in the least. We were in awe with how incredible it was. To have carved that right into the side of that granite mountain is just amazing to me. It's one thing to be creative enough to have designed something like that and another to actually make it come to life. It seriously blows me away. 

George Washington
Thomas Jefferson
Theodore Roosevelt
Abraham Lincoln

This man actually worked as a driller on the monument. We could have bought his book for $10 but instead opted for a quick photo. :)

We were lucky enough to be there just before dark and get to see the light show just after the sun went down. It really was such a fun thing to go and see and lived up to every expectation we had set for it. :)
