It was our last morning to wake up in the city...
...to enjoy a leisure cup of coffee and brunch at the hotel.
Soon we were on the road, making the six hour trip home.
This is a familiar sight while traveling in the summer time.
We were the first car in line, so we visited with the flag girl
during that 10 minute wait. She was quite entertaining!
But then, maybe being out in the heat
contributed to her spunky demeanor!
After traveling through road construction,
we experienced a typical South Dakota hail storm.
Finally, we were home and it wasn't long before the games came out.
And it took even less time for my new helper cat
to discover that our daughters and their husbands
Jasmine didn't leave their side...
in fact, she slept with Amy and Nick every night.
It's hard to explain how good it feels to wake up
to this in the foyer!
Empty nesters, you will relate...
I always slept the best when everyone was home from college
and sleeping under our roof again.
One doesn't come home for a visit
without stopping at Twist Cone...
...and ordering your favorite ice cream treat.
A perfect ending to our first day,
was a trip downtown to enjoy the
Live music, dinner from a food truck,
and being together...
a good time was had by all.
