Grandma's Visit

Grandma's arrival on June 20th.

Petrified wood museum in South Dakota.

Road trip to Rapid City, South Dakota!

Full Throttle Saloon in Sturgis, S.D.

This donkey...let me tell you about this donkey. Apparently he is a pet at the saloon and even featured on their TV show. Ok, he was just creepily hanging out in the parking lot when we pulled up. I got out of the car to take a pic and he comes over to me, so I hop back in the car. Then this donkey OPENS MY CAR DOOR with his mouth. I kid you not! Freaked me out, so I locked my door and he did it again (only unsuccessfully)!

Perry and Lisa.


Us in Sturgis.
Check out the beautiful sky.

Lunch time!

The Black Hills.

Can't really see, but in between those trees is Mount Rushmore.

Driving through Custer Park.

From the this pic off their website, it did not look this nice. It was much more rusty in person.
They claim the slide is 180-foot, Perry said it's not really that big. None the less, it scares me because I'm scared of drowning and of heights. ALL THREE of my kids loved it. Such little dare devils. So I was dared to go down this slide, I ended up making a pinky-promise with my mother in law, and she and I both went down it. Oh-my-gosh, the stairs were wobbly - as was the slide - I was so shaken up when I got off the slide...never again! I did end up reporting to the manager the bad condition of the stairs/slide. Very concerning and was worried about someone getting hurt.

We came by back Full Throttle on our way home to get souvenirs. 

Love these colors.


Perry and I also had our anniversary on the 23rd while in Rapid City.
Overall, it was a very nice visit with Lisa. We miss her already.
