Summer Adventures

It’s hard to let a fun, beautiful summer be over.  Thankfully we’re having an incredible fall that is making the transition easier!  We took a few fun mini excursions this summer.  Explored some new places and they were all relatively close to home.  There really are scenic, beautiful places surrounding us!

My birthday celebration continued at the end of June with a weekend away with all of my family at Waskesiu.  Something I really wanted and everyone made it happen!  We stayed at Elkridge Resort, played at the beach, hiked in the forest and celebrated with the most amazing and adorable shoe cupcakes created by my Mom + sisters!

Another small request of mine while we were all together…

It was a quick trip to Medora, North Dakota for a weekend with our wonderful American family.  It will be nice to go back when we have more time to explore this interesting area.  The Medora Musical was definitely a highlight!  The badlands as the stunning backdrop and a talented group on stage makes it a spectacular performance.  We wandered the streets of historic, western Medora town lined with rustic buildings and gift shops the next day.

I was told by several people that Castle Butte needed to be on our list of places to explore around here.  One evening a few of us hiked up just in time to enjoy a gorgeous sunset.  A landmark used for navigation.  It really is amazing!
