3 weeks - AHHH

As Molly and I were playing around this morning I looked at the calendar and realized in 3 weeks all of our household goods will be packed and we will only have a few more days until we hit the road. So until they come we are going to play with her toys a little more each day because once we hit the road she won't have that many to choose from.
We are preparing for the road trip of all road trips this June and July. We will be traveling over 5,000 miles in our CR-V and camping along the way. We will be loading all of our supplies in the car to include: clothes (for 3 seasons), tents, sleeping bags, air mattress, food, toys, Jon's work uniforms for when we arrive in NC, etc. This should be interesting to say the least.
You may be wondering what we are looking forward to the most - well let me tell you!
*Edmonton Mall - largest mall in North America with over 800 stores, water park, amusement park and 2 putt putt golfs courses
*Glacier National Park - there is a hike that is supposed to have an amazing waterfall at the end
*Mount Rushmore - because it is a national ICON
*camp food - I have been researching some fun recipes and can't wait to try them out
*The exciting adventure of camping out in God's creation (quoted from Jon)
*Seeing family along the way - we will visit all of Molly's great-grandparents on this one trip
*Making it by July 10 so I (Ashley) can hop on a plane and go serve as a camp counselor at Camp ICON the bi-annual conference held by our church back in Waco!!

Hey...if you're going to be in Waco, do I get to see you? It doesn't sound like Molly's coming with that right? Maybe we could meet up and see Tori for a pre-wedding dinner?
