The second part of our tour took us out west! After finishing up the first part of the tour, we stopped home for a day to do laundry, work the muscles on the farm, get some projects done, and of course, spend time with the Iowa fam! The next morning, we headed towards Idaho, stopping on the way to see Mount Rushmore! After our stop in Idaho, we travelled to Montana, Washington, back to Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, and finished out at a music festival in Minnesota! The Lord was so good to us in keeping the bus safe over all the western mountains! We saw His hand guide, protect, and move as we sang in a variety of venues, traveled many miles, stopped to enjoy the beauty around us through hikes+other family excursions, fellowshipped with sweet families in their homes, practiced lots of music, and did Bible Bee, school, bus maintenance, and other work along the way! This is just a little recap of the memories we made on tour!
