Last day of vacation

Well we are home- safe and sound. We ended up driving 13 hours yesterday and got home at 4:30 this morning.
In the morning yesterday we went to the Laura Ingals Wilder exhibit in DeSmet.
We are so glad we went there- it was fantastic!
The kids got to ride ponies, make rope, make corn husk dolls. We all got to ride in a covered wagon to school and have an old time school lesson. We got to see actual areas that things happened in the books. Afterward we drove down the rode and saw the cemetary of Charles, Carolyn and Carrie.
It really was a fascinating place to visit. Even Mark was impressed- this wasn't one of the stops that he was looking that forward too!
It was a great vacation- but I'm glad to be home too!

We went to the Pioneer Museum in Salt Lake and the kids had a blast. There is a lot of fun stuff to do there.

Sounds like a fun vacation!
