When my friend Laura sent her save-the-date for her wedding, I was THRILLED to see it would be taking place in the Black Hills of South Dakota. We have been waiting for an opportunity to take the boys on their first trip there and this was it!

It had been 11+ years since either the hubby or I had been to the Hills, but we have very fond memories of family vacations and camps in the area. I started planning things we would love to see and, in the process, an awesome opportunity to work with the South Dakota Department of Tourism came our way!

So this week, all week, I’ll be sharing about our vacation and all that the gorgeous Black Hills of South Dakota have to offer!


Here is what you have to look forward to…

Monday: Getting There and Back – stops to make along the way!

Tuesday: Just For the Kids – top ten things to do with little ones!

Wednesday: Hill City – so much fun in this small town!

Thursday: Custer State Park – nature and animal lovers, stay tuned!

Friday: Monumental Sights – the monuments that make the Hills famous!

We hope you’ll enjoy hearing about our trip and then plan your own!

See you back here tomorrow!
