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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
