Trek to SD

Well we took a major trek to SD over the weekend.  Of course it started out like this with a beautiful snow the night before/morning we left


But then it cleared up and we have a great mini-trip.  The Wildman and Princess made the 6.5 hour trek to Grandma and Grandpa Kougl’s place in Timber Lake (back home SD).   We had an impromptu birthday party for the Princess as she is turning 3 in just a few days!


The kids got to have plenty of cousin time and grandparent time!  No tears were even shed as we left for the rest of the trip to Sioux Falls!  Impressive!


So The Rancher and I had our first minutes away from the kids in nearly 3 months (mind you, we are both home with them 24 hours a day/7 days a week in a 1 room bunkhouse!).  So here we go, Roadtrip!  Crank up the tunes, grab some snacks and we are off.  We managed to cover 1500 miles in 5 days, saw tons of old friends, met some new ones and had a great surprise!


The Engagement Party we were going to for our good friend Lacey Cooper (she is the one who set up the gofundme site for the fire), turned into a Surprise Wedding!  Here are a few pictures!



What a fun surprise!  They also surprised us with a donation to the Fire Relief Fund instead of doing the normal dollar dance and garter auction.  Talk about bringing us to tears, these are two of the biggest hearted people I know.

Congrats to the happy couple and we are so blessed to be a part of your day!
