5 Eaganites saw 4 Presidents

Our family just returned to Eagan on Tuesday evening after a 9 day vacation. Mount Rushmore National Park highlighted the beginning of our trip. Presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. We drove 2,762 miles in 6 states and visited Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons and the North Dakota Badlands. Tune in tomorrow....

  1. What a monumental work that must have been to carve them.
    And for you to drive so far. What a huge country.

  2. I think it's a wonderful place to visit, especially with young children who absorb so much. Perhaps that will be our next grandparent-grandkids trip.

  12. Drove 2,700 miles in 9 days? With 3 kids? Wow, I don't think I would ever contemplate that. But then your photos are gorgeous and the memories will last a lifetime I'm sure. Your country sure is a spectacular one.
