Gypsy Life: Days 6, 7 & 8

So the original plan was to get to my sisters' house for halloween, do a little trick or treating and then the next day move on down the road. What happened was Friday Colton started vomiting and diarrhea, and did so much that we took him to the ER and he got meds and an IV. We had already checked out of the hotel, but since it was after check out we were able to get back in the same room without getting double charged. The next morning he seemed to be feeling better, so we headed out and made it to Rapid City, SD. We got checked into the new hotel, had dinner, and then it began to hit me. I spent that night miserable (and we won't go into details). Next day (Halloween) we did our obligatory 300 miles and then relaxed in our hotel. Today we made it to my sisters' but only to exchange clothing bins and say a quick hello. Our goal was to make to Iowa City, but about 20 miles from Des Moines the "sickness" hit Jesse, so we found the closest hotel (and we won't go into details). We have three more days and then we'll be in our temporary quarters for a couple weeks then into our home!

What dinner looks like with us.
