This is Life: An Update

Well hello, my long lost blog! Once upon a time, back in August, I had "committed" to posting a day-by-day update of our family trip to the Black we are on December 30th, with no "Day 2" update in sight. Whoa. Also, once upon a time, I used to blog EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Like, EVERY DAY. Sometimes more than once a day and now I go for nearly 5 months without so much as a photo or a "hello" or anything?! Ugh. Here is the Cliffs Notes version of our Black Hills trip: Wildlife loop, Crazy Horse, Rushmore at night. Rushmore at night? AMAZING. Must do. Bring Kleenex. Wildlife loop was a highlight...we saw buffalo fighting near the road. Fun (and a bit frightening) to watch! Another highlight, Cosmos...just a cool, freaky, slighly nauseating place to be! We toured Jewel Cave (super cool) and discovered our fun little waterfall find from our last trip (Thunderhead Falls) was closed. Bizarre...and kind of creepy. Stayed at Rushmore Shadows again
