Visitors & Playing Tourist

In July we were lucky to have some visitors from our home state.  First, my Dad came out to visit for the first time since we’ve moved to South Dakota. Unfortunately, I had to work most of his visit but Alex was able to take him around to some of the usual sites.

Mount Rushmore
We always take our visitors to Mount Rushmore – when in Rome!

Harney Peak Hike

*UPDATE – Now known as Black Elk Peak*

This summer we didn’t hike or camp as much as we usually do – maybe our wedding had something to do with this?  Alex and I decided that we needed to squeeze in at least one camping trip before summer ended so we headed over to Custer State Park.

Summertime Makes Me Feel Good

This past week felt like summer had finally arrived after all the rain and cold weather we had the previous week. I won’t complain about the rain though since we don’t have a fire ban yet, it just isn’t summer without campfires.

I am getting into the swing of summer by sleeping past 7 am and getting items checked off my to-do list that I never got to during the school year.  I’m also spending time outside reading (for pleasure!) lapping up as much sun as my vitamin D-deprived body can take.
