We made it back to Mankato!

Road trip Day #7

This morning we left Keystone, South Dakota, drove 8 1/2 hours and made it back to Mankato, MN (Home!) about 6pm. Unfortunately, we lost an hour going from Mountain to Central time. . . but still made it home at a decent hour.

Thankfully, there was a Starbucks in Rapid City, just 20 miles down the road from the super small town of Keystone. When we stopped, the guy at the drive thru window asked us what our plans were for the day. We told him we were headed home to Minnesota. He told us he was from MN as well, and reminded us that the next Starbucks was about 330 miles away in Sioux City, South Dakota! I was bummed too because on the way to the interstate we passed a Caribou Coffee – now I like Starbucks, but I LOVE Caribou so I was a little bummed that I didn’t know there was a Caribou in town too!

The weather was not great. . . foggy in the morning.

Then, turned to rain.

It didn’t seem to bother the South Dakota cows!


Lunch was Scott’s favorite – Wendy’s!

He was excited to have me try their new fries. I always say that no fries are better than McDonald’s. These weren’t as good as McDonald’s but a lot better than their old fries!

I also had a fish sandwich, which was just ok.  .. nothing amazing!

I also helped Scott finish his chocolate frosty. 😉

We kept busy by playing “Who can name the most State capitols?”

Neither of us did very well - but it helped pass some miles!

Finally, back to MN – the best state sign!

We were quick to unload the car, start some laundry, and go thru the mail.

Scott made a quick run to Kwik Trip for us to pick up some milk and eggs.

I whipped up some french toast for us for dinner.

Eggs mixed with a splash of vanilla and sprinkle of cinnamon.

I love french toast – but let’s be real – it is just a syrup delivery system! I love syrup. YUM.

Check out this cute syrup holder I gave Scott for Christmas!

And I drank the rest of my diet coke from lunch. 🙂

Now, off to catch up on our DVR from vacation – first up: Survivor! Have a g’night!
