Hello….. well this trip is zooming by and I am behind in blogging. There is NO WAY I could cover our entire trip in one post so I am feeling the pressure to catch up. Currently we are in Minnesota at the Stime Family Reunion. But info on that will have to wait, I have to go back a few days and remember what we did on days 6 and 7……. ahhhh, how can I forget…… MOUNT RUSHMORE!!!!
Day 6 was a long drive day……
Here is Bekah blowing off some steam at a rest stop.
The next morning we got up and went to the monument. Our girls were actually quite impressed with it and Rebekah especially seemed to enjoy the information she was learning. I was thrilled to find a children’s book about Mount Rushmore that was perfect for explaining everything about this historical masterpiece.
A family shot…
Anna was thrilled because she got to participate in the Junior Ranger program this time. At Yellowstone there was an age minimum of 5 but Rushmore had a “Ranger in Training” program for under 5. They were sworn in and received cool pins.
So as we have been driving cross country this past week we have had some very obvious road companions……. BIKERS! Last week was Sturgis and so pretty much every town we entered looked something like this…..
We were staying at the KOA in Hill City. This “campground” is unlike any other campground I have ever been to. The amenities were endless. It was like going to a Forest Home or Hume Lake. The girls loved it! After a pleasant morning seeing Rushmore we went back to “camp” and just played! The girls needed to burn off some energy! Here they are on the big bouncy pillow and the waterslide.
