Day 2

We left Idaho and drove through Montana. We decided to skip Yellowstone because with the dogs we would be limited in where we could go. We stopped in a small town to have a picnic and let the kids play. It started raining on us so we loaded up and as we headed out of the park the van got a flat tire. It took a while to figure out where the spare was and put it on but eventually we did and drove to get a new tire. It was a 2 hour detour we hadn't planned on pushing our arrival at the hotel to nearly 10 pm. The kids were great and all fell asleep on the 3 hour drive. Matt took them swimming when we got to the hotel and I stayed with the dogs. One of us always has to be with them because they would bark nonstop if they were alone.

We're in South Dakota now and will visit Mt Rushmore today. We could make it to Illinois by tomorrow night but that would mean more driving than I would like to do in a day. Instead we'll have a more leisurely pace that allows the kids have more time out of the car to play.
