after we went to jack's graduation we hit the road again and headed up to my cabin in south dakota to celebrate some more. we met up with a bunch of jack's family and it was so fun! jack, carter and i didn't do much sight-seeing because we didn't think mr. man would really enjoy the scenic views. so we opted for family time instead while the rest of the family went to places like crazy horse and mount rushmore. however, we did go fishing and spend some time at a couple of the beautiful lakes near our cabin!
here's some of the stuff that happened:
jack's "graduation" cake. yes, those are dolphins.
the alternative was unicorns and heavy pink frosting.
we attempted engagement photos.
carter face-planted in the lake.
mini-heath ledger(literally identical) gave carter a little too much love.
and we got old-time photos!
looking back on this trip makes me realize how much i am really looking forward to becoming a part of jack's family. everything we did was so great, even if it was just sitting around enjoying each other's company. it's all that i needed to enjoy myself.
