I Need A Vaction... A Holiday In The Sun Day 1

So for our family vacation this summer we decided to go visit South Dakota since it was 8 1/2 hrs away. Well the first day we drove to Hot Springs,SD. We checked into our hotel and relaxed awhile. Then we went and visited the Mammoth Site. It was cool seeing the mammoth bones and thinking how they once walked the land. Then we went and picked up some dinner and went swimming. But it was an outdoor pool that was cold so we didnt last to long. Then we went on a walk on this pathway that ran along a stream.

The 4th of July Weekend

So on the evening July 4th we spent with Dan's brother Chris and his family. Then the next day we went to the South Platte River and went gold panning. We all had fun eating lunch and playing in the water.
