So awhile back I got back from vacation. I (along with Reid) went to South Dakota from August 23 - September 3. It was a very fun trip and I decided to show you a few pictures...or a lot :P So I hope you all like looking at pictures :) Be ready for a super long post..
On the plane on the way to Minneapolis. We flew there...
...where we were met by Nina, Marcus, Cherri, Martha & Stephen, Lizzie, Sari, Angie, Anikka, and Minda.
After leaving the airport we drove through this huge national cemetary. From almost any direction you looked at the markers they made straight lines. We drove and drove and drove through there - it's huge!
Then we went to Ikea and ate there (about 2:30 maybe? We flew into Minneapolis at 1:20 I think).
Me, Minda, Lizzie, Sari, and Reid at Ikea.
Katelyn (Seppala) Fraki was staying at Cherri's when I got there and stayed till Thursday afternoon. Some of us girls rode with her to Dennis West's funeral and afterwards.
We went to Walmart with Katelyn and when we went out to leave, Ruthie had just got there. Angie and I stayed with her and then went to her house.
Friday night we (Cherri's), Walter and Sue, Stewart, and Julia Kaiser went there for Karin's birthday. Her birthday was really Thursday, but there was church that night.

The beautiful sunset.
And the sunrise.. Monday morning I woke up early so I could get pictures and it was really nice to watch.
Wednesday me, Abby, Lizzie, Sari, Angie, Anikka, Ariel, Jenny all went to Watertown together. First Lizzie had a class from 10-12. Becky was also taking it so we dropped off Lizzie and took Becky's kids and went to a few places till they were done with their class.
Then after eating we hurried to the Sale Barn.
The big ring.
The little ring.
After that we went to the hospital to see Marti and Tara's new baby boy, Briggs.

At about 5:30, Klara picked me up and we went out to eat. Afterwards she brought me back to Cherri's and stayed awhile.

Up early again on Saturday morning and took some more sunrise pictures.
We flew out of the Watertown airport at like 1:15 or some such time.
