Back from Vacation and back to reality:(

Thursday, August 12, 2010

I had a wonderful 6 days away from home. We enjoyed time with family and friends and even did a little sight-seeing with the kids and on our own. emoticon
We took the kids through the Black Hills National Park, which entailed seeing Crazy Horse Monument, buffalo, ground hogs, and a stop at Mount Rushmore. The kids loved it all but especially Mount Rushmore, my son didn't want to leave. emoticon
On Sunday night we left the kids with my MIL and headed out to Sturgis. The town and the Black Hills were full already, so we got to see plenty of bikes:) We took it easy and walked around looking at bikes and the vendors and of course went riding. emoticon We went through Spearfish Canyon, into Lead and Deadwood and than back through Boulder Canyon. For anyone who has been through the area you know how beautiful the drive was, especially on the motorcycle. I enjoyed the fresh pine smell, warm weather and awesome scenery!!
Than we headed back home yesterday. emoticon It wasn't a bad ride, a little hot, so we stopped every 2 hours for water, but that just meant 2 stops before we arrived home. All together about 5 1/2 hour ride than back to reality.
Today I've been busy with laundry and getting ready for the volleyball season to start. I have an athletic meeting tonight and than practice starts on Monday. My summer is officially over, but at least the vacation was fun.
I hope you all had a wonderful week and thanks for stopping in! emoticon

    Dear Aristotle (aka Sunny :),
    I'm thrilled to hear you had such a great time on your trip! You've been missed. Aww...I thought it was so cute how your son didn't want to leave Mt. Rushmore :) It must be such an impressive sight; it is impressive - even in pictures!! I'm so glad you got to go riding as well, enjoying nature and all that scenery. Sounds like you've got plenty to keep you busy now that you're home. I'm delighted you had a wonderful trip! - Sandi emoticon
