Black Hills Vacation with Granddaughters

Last week we took Cailey and Mia on vacation with us to the Black Hills. We left on Saturday morning and it about broke our heart as we left the house--Carrie was fighting back tears and Luke was quite upset wanting to go too. The girls started the trip out watching the Camp Rock video and then listed to the CD. The girls got out their journals and were busy working on them.

We stopped in Sioux Falls at Falls Park. This was a very nice park and the girls really enjoyed climbing on all the rocks. Mia fell while running on the rocks--no injuries thank goodness. I tried to keep them on a "tighter leash" to try and prevent injury. Today was only the beginning of my use of the phrase "please stay with us."

Stayed in Kimball at a Super 8. It did not have a pool but the girls loved it anyway--they asked if we could stay there all week.
