July 2nd we left IN at 5:30am EST. We arrived in Willow Lake, SD after 14+ hrs of driving. We met my parents, my brothers, and Lizzy at ‘the farm.’ (Pam & Denny’s farm in Willow Lake, SD)
July 3rd was the family fish fry. It was good to see some people I haven’t seen in 10+ years. We also drove to Watertown, SD for a fireworks show. Didn’t get to bed until late but it was fun!
July 4th included ATVs, side by sides, smoked sausage & smoked chicken, plus some kid friendly fire works.
July 5th Josh and I went to Sioux falls for a day of friends. I had breakfast with some female pastors– we chat weekly on zoom. Then we met for lunch with our South Dakota friends: Zach, Andrew, Alex, Mike, Deandra (And her corgie puppy), Sam, Jesse, & little Ellie.
July 6th we slept in then did some shopping before having Chislic for lunch. We picked up my parents for more shopping and then a delicious dinner at Minerva’s.
July 7th left SD at 5:30am CST and arrived home 8pm EST. Oof! Long drive but great time with family and friends.
