Did you know that the "Teddy Bear" is named after Theodore Roosevelt? I just found that out after visiting the Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota - the Badlands of North Dakota. It is so beautiful there. (Pictures to follow.) I ask you - can you imagine living before the Teddy Bear? What would life have been like before the Teddy Bear?
And, I almost got to find out what life was like before showers, as there were no showers in the campground where I was staying. Now this girl loves to camp in a tent under the stars, but she has to have a shower every day!!!!!!!!!
So, I went looking and found one - in a city pool in the town of Medora next to the national park.
