Our Trip {part 1}

 Well...I guess its time to post about our trip! We did so much that it will take two posts to get it all. Hope you enjoy!! (Sorry if it isn't in order. I will be posting some of the things we did last first.) of the last things we did was go to a place called 'Devils Gulch' with Ben, Em & Cedric. It was the spot where Jesse James jumped a twenty foot gulch on his horse when a posse was after him. (at least that's what the legend says:)
There was a lot of climbin' so the guys (especially Ben and Caleb) enjoyed it a lot.

Of course it wouldn't have been half as much fun without this little guy!!
We also visited Falls in Sioux Falls. 

And we visited De Smet. In this picture Esther and JoAnna are driving a pony cart.

Esther...making a jump rope.

JoAnna grinding flour in a coffee grinder. Just like the one Laura Ingalls and her family would have used during the 'Long Winter.'

Playing horseshoes.

On a stagecoach. Looks rather dangerous with who is driving!

Um...How does this thing work?

There was an old church there with a pump organ. Its a lot of work playing that thing!

Can you get us all in the air? Guess not.

We celebrated Esther's ninth birthday with cupcakes! (Who gave her that candy stick?!!

The first day we were there the Hanson's/Hauguard's and Hannah Mustian were there as well. When they left we stayed behind and slept in the bunkhouse. It was super fun.

Siblings are amazing! It was such a blast traveling with some of my siblings. We really missed not having Elizabeth and Matt with us. But since they couldn't get time off they couldn't join us. a covered wagon.

Esther washing clothes.

Me (Marie) riding a horse.

We visited the school house and got all 'dressed up'. I can't see out of my bonnet!

Caleb driving a real covered wagon!

Gotta love this picture of Esther! Shes got no legs! (actually shes trying out her new jump rope:)

Nice horse.

Another pic of Esther on a horse!

That's a lot of people in one stagecoach!

Libby and I on a pony cart.
We also visited the Maclary's. JoAnna is holding a goat at their place.
All of us! It was super fun visiting them.

Hi guys! (Back at Ben and Ems)
And back to Devils Gulch. (yep the pic's got mixed up)
The best dad in the world!
Climb Cedric, Climb!
And Ben...Just being Ben!  Well...hope you all enjoyed geting a glimpse of what we did on our trip. Check back soon for part 2. (If I get around to blogging it...:)
