First Family Vacation

20140619-185007-67807047.jpg

My longtime dream of a road trip as a family! After all the years and health battles!

Having the opportunity of making a dream come true for our son! We pulled off a complete surprise…..drove to Boise, ID where we enjoyed a Boise Hawks Opening baseball game….our son scored two balls! One practice and one official game ball!!

Then on to Vernal, UT where we visited Dinosaur National Monument! The Wall of Bones and walking tour were awesome! Visited the Natural History Museum….then got to do some of our own fossil hunting! Our son was beside himself! So much fun!

Now we are in Kemmerer, WY! We visited the Fossil Butte National Monument Visitor Center! Wow! More fossils….fish, freshwater stingray, alligator, etc. Wandered around fossil and gem shops. Tomorrow we go to a quarry to dig our own fossils!

We have travelled over 1200 miles…..I have been able to manage my special diet (Low FODMAP)….and my colostomy hasn’t been an issue.

We have enjoyed swimming in the pools at the motels. Tonight even relaxed in the jacuzzi for a short time! Yeah!!!

We are all relaxing and looking forward to the last few days of a fabulous time!!!!!
