I was checking the blogs and realized I had not posted for 2 months. I got lazy. A lot has happened since August 9th. August we didn't really go anywhere or do anything, Lesley and Cameron and Alexis came over on a few of the Saturdays. In September we went to Wendy's. We drove out on a Wednesday, On Thursday Dawna and Wendy canned some tomatoes while David and I played with Shalon and Cutler, and got ready to go to South Dakota. Wes's parents kindly let Wes and Wendy borrow their van so we could all travel together. Friday morning we left and drove to Gillette where we had lunch. Then we drove to Devils Tower. We walked around the base of the tower and watched some climbers climbing the south side. Shalon walked most of the way and Wendy and David packed Cutler. He fell asleep before we finished. Wes carried Shalon when she was to tired to walk. Then we got back in the van and drove to Rapid City to a motel that had a water park attached to it. We had a lot of fun at the water park. Wendy has most of the pictures because I didn't take my camera. The picture that I have posted was taken the next morning as we were leaving. After the water park we went out to eat at Perkins. By that time Cutler had just about had all the fun the He could handle, So Wendy and Wes didn't get to enjoy a relaxed meal. The next morning We went to Mount Rushmore, ate lunch in Keystone, which is right by Mount Rushmore and then went to Reptile Gardens. Then the drive back to Sheridan which we got back about 9:30 on Saturday. Thank you Wes for doing all the driving. We came back on Sunday arriving home about 9:00 on Sunday night. It was a short trip but We had a lot of fun. Thank you Wes and Wendy for the great trip. Here are a few of the pictures in no particular order.
