Yesterday Mom and I drove all day and stopped for dinner in Wall, South Dakota; which is the home of the famous Wall Drug Store! As a kid I remember running through all the little shops and thinking there was no possible way for me to see was so much bigger back then. Last night I overheard a man turn to his wife and say,"This town is nothing more than a glorified shopping mall." Even though Wall Drug is silly and overdone it is an experience and a fine place to rest on a long rode trip.

Montana is breathtakingly beautiful but the home Cindy and Darius have created there is even more beautiful. I thank them for such a wonderful week!

This trip with my Mom was wonderful. We laughed a lot and realized we can take trips with just the two of us...and not go completely crazy.

You and your mom are so cute together! I am glad you had a great time!

Your trip sounds like it was fabulous, and a great bonding experience for you and your mom! How wonderful! And I totally agree with your Wall Drug sentiments. When I was little, my parents and I did a S. Dakota road trip and Wall Drug was one of my favorite stops along our drive. :)

What is Wall Drug? Kind of like Cracker Barrell?

The pics are great, but the one of your mom and you is the cutest ever. I don't know if I'd have the guts to go somewhere just my mom and me... at least not until one or both of us has mellowed a bit more.

Thanks ladies for all your comments!

I don't know if I can even begin to explain what Wall Drug is...check out Jayleigh.

There were SO many billboards on our trip that I think they actually made me think I wanted to go there! It worked!
