This first official stop on our trip was at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
The kids wandered down in the 106 degree weather to explore the salt...
Mom and Dad set up lunch at the picnic tables.
Cody & Caleb finding cool chunks of sparking salt.
Everyone came back to the table to start eating, but Caleb was enthralled! He wanted to keep exploring.
About 5 minutes later he came running up to the table all excited! He had found a marker on the salt flat! (a permanent marker!)
We gave him a napkin to try it out on and he opened it up.
Out fell a huge marijuana joint!
Mom snagged it up and grab Caleb's hand and as she rushed him to the car to wash his hands with sanitizing wipes, dropping the joint and the marker into the trash!
Momma scrubbed his hands thoroughly.
Then his face.
He seemed confused.
After she was sure there was no ickiness upon his little body, we joined the crew at lunch.
A few minutes later Caleb says in a relieved voice...
"OH!!! I get it! You were washing my hands for lunch!"
Uh - Yeah - Spot on little man!
Why is it always Caleb...?
Mom and Dad... ready to get back in the car and hit the road!
We got a late start and it could be after midnight by the time we reach Vacaville!
