South Dakota

Jason had to make a quick trip to Rapid City for work this weekend, and we decided to go with him. We stopped at a couple of fisheries along the way. The girls had a great time feeding the fish. We stayed over night in Rapid City and went to the WaTiki water park there. The girls had a blast playing in the water, but I couldn't get Lindsey to go down the water slides at all. Even the little ones. She just didn't want to. Megan went down a couple of the big slides with me. I think she got a little nervous. The best part though was the hot tub. Megan thought the jets were so funny. Every time she walked past one in the water, she would start to laugh. My favorite part was how well they slept that night. We decided the way to go was to keep them up late and wear them out in the water. That is a good way to make sure they sleep well. The next morning we headed home through Mt. Rushmore. That was my very first time to see Mt. Rushmore. It was pretty impressive. I think the best time to see those types of things are in the off season because there weren't any crowds and good parking.

How fun! We went a couple summers ago on a family reunion! Mt. Rushmore was beyond packed! But we were there on the 4th of July! We went to the water park too! Way fun! Old McDonalds Farm is also a fun place for little ones!!

Sounds like a really fun trip! I love the photos of your girls and I think the one of your family turned out great.

How fun is it to be able to take a trip with dad (expecially if he has to go for work). Your girls are so cute.
