Mini Vacation

We went to the Hills for a mini vacation this last weekend. We took off on Friday night about midnight (Courtney had a game and of course it was over an hour away in the opposite direction and we left after her game). We rolled into Rapid City about 6 am our time (5 am Rapid City time). We brought Courtney's friend Tayler along and Jeremy's friend/cousin Jarrett along too. I took the girls shopping for prom dresses on Saturday and the boys went snowmobiling all day Saturday and Sunday. The girls each scored prom dresses....very gorgeous ones too I might add and the boys had a blast sledding in the Hills.
I have been pretty bad at getting around to "check in" with everyone lately. I am hoping to get
some time this week to "catch up" with all of you.

Wow! Is it time for prom dresses already? When I was that age, I think I would have preferred to go with the boys playing than shopping. Heck, I guess I'd still rather go play than shop. LOL

Looking forward to prom pics.

Sounds like a much-needed mini vacation after all you've been thru.
Refreshing I'm sure.

We love to take mini vacations in the hills! There's so much to do.

Hope life is good at the farm. How's Chad coping?

How did Jeremy's new snowmobile run? Hit anything?

I can't wait to see the dresses! If my mom had a blog when I was a teen - her "after prom dress shopping" would have sounded more like a mother who was on the edge of checking herself into the mental institution. Glad to hear your experience was much more enjoyable.

So glad you were able to get away for a few days. What joy when you can find just the right prom dress.

Love and Hugs,

Those short weekend getaways are the best!!

Crystal said...

Yeah for successful shopping trips! And bonus to have the guys enjoy themselves too. I'm glad you were able to get away in the dead of winter.

I've been to Rapid City!! About 15 years ago I chaperoned our school band on a trip there. It was the first time I'd been in that part of the country and I'd go back again in a minute.
