First of all, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to my parents who were married 47 years ago today.....quite an accomplishment!
One week from tonight, we will be on our way to South Dakota. I am very excited! I love just about any vacation we take as a family. We have Cardinal tickets that night and after the game, we will head west. We plan to drive for a couple of hours, get a cheap motel room for the night, and then get up and continue driving in the morning.
Among other sites, we will definitely visit Mt. Rushmore. Our hope was to watch the July 4 fireworks over Mt. Rushmore but I have now found out that SD is having a dry summer and the chance of the fireworks there starting a fire is greater than usual, so there won't be any fireworks this year. Bummer for us but we'll make due!
