brace yourselves: "what i did on my summer vacation" photos are coming!
lily and i left mankato and headed to omaha for a few days with my family and for me (lily had an overnight with my parents) a night out at the sara bareilles concert with my sister and future sister-in-law!
we then headed across nebraska, just like the pioneers, stopping at chimney rock and the scottsbluff monument.
we then drove on to jackson hole, wy (where i had never been before) home of the majestic tetons:
we picked brian up at the airport (he couldn't take the whole time off work, but was able to fly out and meet us for the wy/mt part of the trip) and spent a few days enjoying yellowstone.
we then drove up to bozeman, mt (which just happens to be where brian and i met) and spent a couple days visiting old haunts...
the impetus for the trip was my good friend's daughter's wedding...
the we dropped brian off at the airport and headed on to south dakota for some good old fashioned road trip silliness:
after almost two weeks we found ourselves back home:
and as i opened the trip with a concert, it seemed only fitting to end with a concert as well. we got back to mankato at 7:05pm and pat benatar took the stage at 8:00pm!
a perfectly rockin' way to end a perfectly rockin' road trip!
