A Day in South Dakota

FarmWe got to South Dakota a few days before the reunion was scheduled to start. Farm1So why not go out and ride a tractor? Farm2 Beef, it’s what’s for dinner!Farm3I wouldn’t mind having a shed this size.  This is for you Wendy.  :) Farm4 After visiting cousin David’s farm we went in to town.Farm5 We met up with some other cousins.Farm6 We enjoyed Peyton’s softball game.Farm7 We hung out, chatted, and did a little catching up.Farm8Lisa showed up and started talking to the kids.  When she knew their names they were dumbfounded.  It was pretty funny.Farm10 Then we headed back to Ryan’s farm where the kids took the sheep for a walk.Farm9Then they got distracted and the sheep got away.  Farm11The distraction was a turtle that they found in the middle of the yard. Farm12

The kids then decided to put a play together.  It was called, “The Melius Kids Meet Some More Melius Kids.”  Fitting don’t you think?  By the end of the day the kids were beat.  The sun sets later here in South Dakota.  It can be 10pm and still light outside.

I couldn't agree with you more Laura. It was so fun to just hang out and not have to worry about anything else. That whole week was great! Makes me wish we lived a little closer. Love you guys!
