Mchardy Park and the library

They had a big thing at the park to raise money with people buying plastic ducks. So the kids were really excited to see the ducks.
They had these paddle boats the kids could go in. The line for it was really short. So we went several times while Jason waited in the pony rides line. Zoe in the boat.

Kaleb and Hailey in a boat together.

Zoe in a boat again.

Kids riding the train.
Zoe riding a pony.When they rode the pony. Zoe's horse decided to go potty. The kids thought it was funny.

I decided to go to the library before the kids started school. Hoping they had story times set up but not until after school starts.
They had a puppet center and the kids had fun playing with it.

So we brought the kids to Falls Park. They had a good time checking it out.
Some of the falls.

This is where they used to pipe the water through.

 Kids looking at the water.

Standing next to an old building at Falls park.

This was one side of the building and that is the roof above the kids heads.

One more picture.

It was a little windy that day. As you can tell from Hailey's hair.

One last picture of the kids.August 2013

Kids playing at the KOA in Sioux Falls Sd. We stayed there for a couple days til we moved into our apartment.

Out by the road. James crawled out to watch Zoe and Kaleb ride their bikes on the road.

Three of the kids riding on the tractor in the store. It is one of the kids favorite things to do when we go shopping there.

The back of Zoe's hair for church.

 Behind the house the lawn slops down and when there is rain it pools at the bottom and makes a muddy mess. Zoe thought it would be fun to get muddy head to toe. August- September 2013

Garettson South Dakota

  So we went for a drive and ended up in a town close to Brandon. They had this park that was called Devils Gulch. It was were Jesse James jumped over the gulch to escape the law. So we thought we would check it out and it was free so can't beat that. It turned out to be really neat and fun to check out the trails.
It leeds down to the water below.

Here is where he supposeable jumped across at.

Now the kids have made it down to the water and threw rocks into it. When I researched about the place they have had people dive into the water and try to see how deep it goes and they are not sure how far it goes down still. A little scary.

More rock throwing.

 Looking at the rocks around the water.
 Kaleb and the landscape.
