Albert's gummy bears melted into a gooey colorful mess
What a busy couple of days! We picked up Allista from the airport on Wednesday. She is staying with us for a few weeks. Friday we drove out to Sioux Falls and stayed at Byron and Paula's place and then drove out to Rapid on Saturday. We stopped at Allista's Grandma Ward in Kadoka. She has the most adorable cat that is super friendly. It was a nice visit. We arrived in Rapid City just in time for Eric's mom, Judy's birthday party. When the Williams family goes out to eat we need a whole room. Saturday night we got an awesome lightening show from our hotel room. Its nice to be on a hill. Allista was very much amazed. They don't get the lightening shows in the Nevada desert. Sunday we spent the entire day at Eric's parents. We talked to Adrian and his family for a couple hours. Yesterday we picked up Albert and Judy and went to Bear Country, Jewel Cave, Custer State Park and Keystone. The whole time we were serenaded by Albert. That kid really likes to sing. It was a really interesting day but it was a lot of fun. Albert got some gummy bears at Bear Country, while on the Jewel Cave tour the gummy bears melted into a gooey colorful mess (see inset). After Jewel Cave we took the long way back to Rapid City via Custer State Park Wildlife loop and Iron Mountain Road to Keystone. We picked up some fudge and head back to Rapid. Last night a bunch of us went to Pirate's Cove Mini Golf. Some had a lot of fun, especially Olivia who had a score of 195.5 and thought she was the winner. (we didn't want to break it to her that the lower the score the better) and I was the overall winner with 48. Juanita didn't have as much fun. She threw a few temper tantrums and kept on saying it wasn't a sport. The rest of us had fun. Not sure what is on tap for today....I guess we will see....

Welcome to the Beautiful Black Hills.
