I am HAPPY we had an awesome vacation. Okay, maybe not awesome but a great one; it would have been awesome if we could have had our second day in Yellowstone and no car repairs. Yep, we made it to Cody, Wyoming and Todd's car broke down. Thankfully it was in Cody and not deserted highway because trust me, there were many many miles in between something, sometimes we went nearly 60 miles or a lot more before even seeing a house or anything. We were also very lucky to have found this wonderful repair shop. The maintenance guy told us they had no openings until Thursday or Friday next week (which we needed to leave the next day... it was last Friday) and when the owner came to the shop we told him our story and asked what or who he can recommend for us. He said let me see what I can do for you. He checked and found the one and only alternator in town for our car. He also took a battery pack to our car, which died two blocks away to save $70 tow charge. This guy was so AWESOME!!!! He replaced our alternator and battery for us in three hours. He pushed back all the other cars just to help us out. What a wonderful man. He made me so HAPPY, I cried. Seriously I cried. I was so happy because I feared we were going to have to leave Todd behind and maybe Noah to keep him company for the drive back to Iowa but we did not because God sent this Angel on earth to help us. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!!!!
I have so many more stories to share and a ton of pictures. Do not worry I will not post all 615 pictures but it will take a while to share my vacation. I want to do it right like I did the past two years. Here are only a few pictures. I did post one of my favorites from my son's smart phone last Wednesday. If you have not checked it out, please do. I had the guys all pose like Mt Rushmore. It cracked Emily and I up.
What do you have to be happy about this week?
