Summer Vacation 2014 in Photos

Our first big road trip as a family of four wrapped up last week. We travelled first to Yankton where we spent an overnight and were joined by Natasha and TJ. We then all caravanned west to Hill City, SD. The weather was wonderful, the company was wonderful, and the only complaint was the entire trip flew by in a flash — it was just too quick.
