MT – Day 3 – The Badlands of South Dakota

5 photos in this post  The Badlands have to be one of our favorite spots. This time through though, they looked SO different due to them being so green. Most of the parking lots are designed for big rigs making it easy to pull in and stop at various spots along the way. If you have been following our trip you will have already surmised that Wednesday was a BUSY day. We did not get to the Badlands until... read more

MT – Day 3 – Dignity in Chamberlain, SD

No matter which direction you are traveling on I-90, make sure you stop at the Chamberlain Rest Area between exits 263 and 265. Here you will see this GORGEOUS 50 foot statue of Dignity.

Richard and the three little ones had never been and I honestly could... read more

MT – Day 3 – Go-Karting

HOWEVER swimming was first on the agenda so it was not until this morning that we went to the office to hire them. At $5 per hour that was money well spent. They only have two but Hannah soon tired and so the boys had a blast peddling around the campsite. R and R Campground is a great campsite and... read more

MT – Day 2 – Swimming

Yesterday was an enjoyable but long day. What kept the children going was the fact that they knew there was a pool awaiting them when we arrived in Mitchell. It was nearly 7pm by the time we arrived and as soon as we set up, they quickly got changed and ready. Whilst Treasure Lake pools are great there is NO jumping or diving allowed so there was great excitement last evening when they realized they could... read more
