Because one reunion just isn't enough we also attended the Swanhorst Family reunion the day after the Melius Family reunion. Yikes! The Swanhorst reunion was a little bigger. Three Meliuses married three Swanhorsts, so you still had a ton of Meliuses there, but also from Denver, we have more cousins that aren't Meliuses, but they're Swanhorsts. Can this be anymore confusing because I really don't even know what I'm writing.
We hung out in Aberdeen, SD for the day and visited Storybook Land where I'm sure it was over 90 degrees outside with 90% humidity. Seriously. Storybook Land is an adorable little park filled with storybook characters.
went down the old lady's shoe slide, found Cinderella's carriage, Uncle Conrad treated the children to rides on the carousel,
Then we found the Wizard of Oz characters and followed the yellow brick road.The scarecrow showed us the way to go where we found the wicked witch's castle,
the cowardly lion,Glinda, the good witch,
and of course, we found Dorothy and Toto! After all that walking we headed back to the park to chat, and swim in the lake.
A long day in Aberdeen called for beer and wine to unwind after a long day. Thanks to David and Laura for hosting us. We had so much fun with you guys! To see some more awesomeness from our South Dakota trip check out this link.
