Tuesday of our trip to South Dakota

Slowly but surely I'll post trip pictures!!  The Tuesday of our trip was another wonderful day!  Tom took the kids to 'hook 'em and cook 'em' fishing in the park.  Unfortunately there was no 'cooking' because of the fire ban.  Sophie caught a fish though!  (Tom did not take a picture of that!)  After fishing we headed to Mt. Rushmore.  It was amazing.  They have a wonderful 'junior ranger' program that the kids could do, by filling out a booklet they would earn a badge.  It's safe to say we all learned quite a bit!  From there we headed to the Old West town of Deadwood.  On the way we hit a hail storm!  Very unexpected!  The kids and I found some great antique shops in Deadwood and even a vending machine for homemade truffles at a great chocolate shop, "The Chubby Chipmunk'  We had dinner at a wonderful place in Rapid City, where Noah had his first of 3 Buffalo Burgers of the trip!  So many great memories!!
