Took some time out for a MUCH needed vacation. Headed out a week ago for the Black Hills and Badlands in South Dakota with a couple of friends and our Corvette's. The weather was AMAZING, it never got above 80 the whole time. Mornings were cool, the lowest, 42. Needless to say the top was down on the car, and, light jackets on. There is nothing better than driving through the mountains in a convertible. It's been 50 years, yes, 50 years, since I was in the Black Hills and Badlands. It's still just as magnificent as it was back then. My hubby had never been in that part of the country, so, it was fun watching him take in all the sites. Seeing Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and, soaking in all our surroundings', priceless. The wildest part, all my family, brother, sister-in-law, his daughters, their husbands, and, their kids, were in the Black Hills within the past 4 weeks. It would have been fun if we could have scheduled our time to meet up and all explore together.
Even though the past week was fun and brought back memories, it's GREAT to be back home. Our little dogs are really, really happy to have us back. They missed out laps, and, we missed them too. We are extremely lucky we have a house/dog sitter that stays with our 4 little darlings, and, we don't have to board them. Since we returned, all 4 of them have been in our laps anytime we sit down.
Guess it's time to get back to reality and every day living. I'll post some pics later.
