Spin Cycle--Summer Vacation

Summer vacation.  Ours is drawing to a close for the boys.  We have had fun this year and we are looking forward to sending out the summer with a bang next week. See, we are taking the boys to the Black Hills.  We will be staying at a campground outside of Custer, South Dakota.  Beaver Lake Campground to be exact.
This will be our first experience at a campground that is not national forest.  I'm looking forward to having access to a shower and we are looking forward to having electricity too.  The Black Hills are always fun, but this will be our first trip with the boys for multiple days in the summer.  More crowds, more activities.
But for the rest of summer vacation, the boys have been at turns busy and not so busy.  Here are some highlights:
Ripley's Believe it or not dinosaur fossil cabin.

Big Horn Mountains.

Dinosaur museum Thermopolis, WY

Dino museum

4th Camping.

Sticks in the fire.

Sprinkler playing

Bull Riding

Still happy.

Ferris Wheel with Turbo.

Kayak playing.

Lake fun.

River fun.

Mountain lake fun.
 Truly, it has been a full, fun summer so far.  We have a week to go and we plan on making the most of it. Black Hills here we come.
Put your spin on Summer Vacation and join Gretchen and Ginny Marie, they would love to have you!
