South Dakota Vacation

We had a great family vacation out in South Dakota/Wyoming in June. The Kids enjoyed the camping and sightseeing. Chris cried when we came around the corner and saw Mount Rushmore.  All in all it was a fun and exciting time together as we got mixed into the history and beauty of America.  I of course enjoyed being the photographer of our expedition (along with Kasey who took 700 photos) so attached are a few of  my favorites with captions.
