So we have been working really hard and it seems every single weekend we pack it choke full of activities at home, our community and church stuff....so we just decided that we needed to get away for some one on one family time. Because we live in North Dakota a lot of people think there is absolutely nothing to do here. Well that couldn't be further from the truth. You just have to get out and enjoy the history that there is to offer here. So after a short 4 hr drive we ended up in a small town in the black hills and started our little adventure.
Patton doing his thing at Mt Rushmore
George, Thomas, Teddy, Abe and Patton....5 great men that have shaken the world :-)
We braved the 873 steps to the base of the mountain. Bennett pretty much ran the entire way!
This was our second visit to Rushmore, almost exactly a year since moving North
Kennedy enjoyed her new ride
These boys had a blast
We had to stop at the indoor water park in Rapid City....Haley was showing us her moves
Kennedy had a blast....for the first 15mins, until she fell asleep :-)
The cabin had access to a lot of trails and of course we had to go exploring
Haley just had to have a picture in front of the cabin......it was, lets say a painful production....
...and of course Haley made my birthday cake and we had an awesome party
who doesn't want grow in water dinosaurs and bouncy balls for their birthday :-)
Just having fun
Our one and only attempt at a selfie.....We probably wont try again
We asked mom if we could buy one.....unfortunately she said no :-(
