Goodbye summer

It's official. Summer 2008 has come and gone. I hated to see it go. It went by so fast. Here in the great state of South Dakota, we didn't get summer until late June. Now, it's all but a memory.

We kicked off the weekend by watching the High School football team play their first game. We didn't do so hot. We lost - Big. It was fun going and seeing everyone though. We had a HUGE turn out. It's too bad we blew it so badly.

Nathan and Dawson saw their football coach from the summer, Chase. They yelled his name and he looked at them and waved. It was so cute! Chase did very well and made at least 2 HUGE tackles. It was fun to watch him. We have another home game this Friday. We're going to have to play better ball to get a check in the W column.

Saturday morning we headed off to Pierre for a fun camping weekend. It was hot. This kind of hot.

It even said 106 a couple of times. Eeek! That's a bit hotter than I like it.

We saw a bit of wild life.

The kids had a lot of fun with their cousins. Well - with Spencer at least. Zachary is still a bit of a Mommy fan and doesn't want a ton to do with anyone else right now. He'll come around in time.Nathan and Spencer brought their bikes and spent a lot of time on them. They always have so much fun when they're together.I'm not sure how this happened, but Claire and Jack ended up in the closet in the camper. Jack thought it was all kinds of fun. Claire? Not so much.

The kids played, and played, and played.

There were plenty of times to just kick back and relax too.

Tomorrow.....more camping pictures. The big boys even went swimming in the river....and I didn't even have a panic attack!
