South Dakota Vacation, part 3
A camping must- roasting hot dogs. We also roasted humungous marshmallows and they were delicious!
Next morning started out with Scott, Michael and Anna hiking to the top of the hill. They had a great time and the highlights included seeing a snake, hearing coyotes howling, and seeing Mt. Rushmore in the distance.
The kids had fun howling along with the coyotes.
We can't see it as clearly as they did, but that is Mt. Rushmore in the distance.
We went to Dinosaur Park in Rapid City. It is especially nice because you get a beautiful view of the city.
Storybook Island is a very cute park and the kids enjoyed running all around to see all the different statues and having their pictures taken.
We ended the day with a Cowboy Chuckwagon Supper and Show. Before it began, there were various demonstrations. The kids got to help make a rope. Here is Anna working hard.
There was a also a tin maker making the tin plates that the Cowboy Supper is served on. The kids helped put a buffalo imprint on the plate below.
Here Gramma with the girls before the show began. It was a very fun show and we all especially enjoyed the fiddler. Her fingers were flying and kept our toes tapping!
