Here I am on Lookout Mountain, a fur piece from home, but a dandy of a view.
John got to go to the Denver Zoo and take some pictures of your cousins.
I dunno why they wouldn't let dogs in the zoo! Not fair at all if you ask me!
See y'all later!

This end seems safer...right?

get us down before someone gets any ideas!
The drying rack is so embarrassing. Not only is it not comfortable but we end up hanging our butts out the window so we dry. But I must admit...I am really clean and nice smelling now. But don't tell Erin. I don't want her getting any ideas about doing this again.

Ok, so I know it’s been ages since I’ve written – I thought I was going to get a vacation once I got Beth to graduate, but nooooo, she decided to go right to grad school, no vacation, no job, no income, what I thought was going to be live on easy street just turned into more work for me. I thought when I stopped working at Serta I’d get to sleep at night. How was I supposed to know when Erin recruited me that I’d sleep even less?
I finally decided enough was enough; it’s summer, summer session is over, fall semester hasn’t started yet, I was going to take some well deserved time to watch the Olympics. So far I’ve seen some women’s beach volleyball, men’s and women’s team gymnastics and LOTS of swimming. I think it would be really cool to train for the Olympics, so far, all I can tell is that Michael Phelps and I have completely opposite body types. He’s just over 6’, I’m just over 6”. He’s got muscular arms and a six pack, I’ve got noodle arms and a keg shaped body. I think the real deciding factor in my Olympian status is not my body type or ability, but if I can afford one of those special speedy swim suits...anybody know if they make one that's actually self propelled?

We all were getting a little excited and bouncy in the car. We got to see Old Faithful and next we were going to the sulfur flats. Erin told us to behave but we just couldn't. So then Erin stopped the car AGAIN! She did that a lot to watch foxes and bisons and other things. She told us to get out and read the sign. So we did. And then she told us to behave because if we didn't we would go cliff diving. DJ said that it might be fun but then saw Erin's look. And it wasn't a "This will be fun" look. We were scared. Apparently, they have a lot of unruly sheep in Yellowstone. We behaved after that. But we were still really excited.
Finally we got to the last spot. We piled out of the car and then ran back in. It was really smelly. Erin said it would be ok. So we got back out. We got our pictures taken and then ran back in the car. Erin can't find the picture now. I think they spontaneously exploded from the smell. But it was really cool.
Ok and now we are off on our last leg of our trip to Seattle! I'm having so much fun. I never get to go anywhere and now I get to go everywhere. Blog back soon!

After hanging out at Mt. Rushmore and playing in the Black Hills (or getting lost as Mommy calls it) we had to drive across Wyoming. Erin said that she wasn't going to drive this route again. So we get to see Yellowstone too! We were so excited we had to wait until Erin would DJ back into the car. DJ was a little too excited, if you know what I mean.
Driving across Wyoming was a lot more exciting than South Dakota. But it took forever! We had to drive over all these mountains, in the fog. I thought Mommy was going to loose it. Erin didn't seem really happy either. I just closed my eyes and hid under the blanket. When I woke up we were at Yellowstone!
