Last night during general conversation with Ryan some how my thoughts went to Montana. I don't know some how the word Butte came up, and I automatically thought of Butte Montana. Anyway, I got to thinking about how much I'd like to see Montana one day. Ya know, we have tried twice to plan a road trip out to see the Badlands. The first time we started talking about it, it was end of 2005, beginning of 2006. At the same time though, we decided we wanted to have a baby. Well, once we got serious about trip planning, BAM! Pregnant. So thinking that driving from Ohio to the Dakotas as a pregnant lady wouldn't be the best. Swelling, and bad for you food, and then hiking in the Badlands, just not a good idea. So we put it off. We started talking about it again before Ethan. Again, pregnant! So I'm kind of hesitant to bring it up again for fear of getting pregnant again, haha! No one day we will drive out west. I want to see it so bad. The pictures that I have seen of the area look so amazing, it can only be that much better in person.
I'd also like to see Hawaii. My ideal would be that one year Ryan and I go by ourselves. Then once both boys are older, can enjoy it and remember it, go back. I have no idea which island I would want to see though. They all seem special. I'd like to see the Gulf of Mexico one day. Although I'm not sure which state I'd like to see it from. I'm a big fan of the ocean. Any ocean. Italy. Love to see Italy. I would have no idea where to begin, so if I ever went to Italy, I'd want my visit to be apart of a tour group or something. There are so many amazing places in this world. I love gorgeous landscapes and historic ruins. Take me to a place that has one of those and I'd be a happy girl.
I want the boys to grow up with an appreciation of travel, and new things. We may not be able to travel the world, but even here in this state there are places we can go to show them that getting out and seeing new things can be fun.
Where would you go? I'd love to hear!
