Labor Day Weekend

Not the best picture ever!, but how many wild buffalo have you ever seen?
Buffalo and Moose are so intriguing. I am not sure why, but they are among my favorites. The prairie dog is at the top of my list as well.

Indian Chief Carter at Wall Drug, South Dakota.

Needles Highway South Dakota

Can you say claustrophobia? Needles Highway South Dakota.

We borrowed Brigham coming back, so he joined us on our trip to Wall Drug.

Evan on the Alpine slide.

Matt and Carter heading up the ski lift to ride the alpine slide down.

Carter really wanted ride horses, so Matt & I rode with him. Carter's horse was named Bummer, I was riding Maverick.

Bear Country USA. Fun drive through an animal sanctuary. We saw loads of animals we don't normally have the opportunity to see except at the Zoo maybe.

Big Elk

Dawsy waiting for dinner

Infamous Mt Rushmore. Astonishing really!


Carter was trying to pick Jefferson's nose.

Back in Denver at a restaurant/farm. White Fence Farm, famous for their Fried Chicken.

Carter & Dawson

Evan feeding the bull and getting slimed! Evan of all of the boys is the least fond of animals, can you tell?

Bailey, Carter & Dawson or Declan? in the tree house.

Dawson, Declan & Papaw riding the horse.

For Labor Day my parents flew out for 5 days. With Cary and her kids and my parents we all drove to Mt Rushmore, South Dakota for the weekend. It was only a 5-6 hour drive. It was great fun, a tourist trap I must say, but fun nonetheless.
