Super fun place called Flags and Wheels with lazer tag, bumper cars, and go carts.
Kaiden on a "train" at McDonald's Farm. The goats there are pretty sassy!
Hills Alive concert. We were able to see a few performers at Hills Alive, a free Christian concert in a park. Casting Crowns did such a great job of being worshipful, God-honoring, and not setting themselves up as being some kind of rock band idols. Really appreciate them.
Storybook Island is always a winner, being free!
Awesome face painting!
Kaiden can't get enough of trains.
We went on the 1880 train, which is an hour long ride on a car attached to a steam engine. It's loud, steamy, and great scenery. Fun to do!
Addy and I riding on the train.
Addy picked out a bit of a funny outfit to wear around...
At the end of our time in SD, we went to MN for a family reunion with my mom's family. We did this in 2011 when we were back last as well, and it was such a nice time to see everyone again, especially my grandma, who has had pretty poor health the last few years. We cherished having time with her again! My uncle hired a photographer to take pictures of the family, so I'll add those in when we get access to them.

The Como zoo is free and had a baby orangutan. So cute!
Gorgeous and divine smelling arboretum at the zoo.
The look-alikes. Gwen, Gretch, my mom, grandma.
