I had this little idea in the back of my head to take a fall trip the weekend prior to mine and Marissa's birthdays. Quite nicely, Shelby's fall break lined up with this idea, and so on Friday, October 16th we set off for Sioux Falls, South Dakota, roughly a 3 1/2 hour drive from our house. We stopped in Yankton at a cute little park for a picnic lunch and then finished out the drive, checking into our hotel around 2:00 pm. The only thing on our agenda for the rest of the day was investigating Falls Park. If we lived in Sioux Falls I think you would find us there every weekend! The kids loved climbing all over the rocks (a bit too fearlessly at times . . . *ahem*), and just overall, it was a nifty little place to run around and explore. We have all been craving some days full of margin, and this fit the bill nicely. We had lovely fall weather, coo, but not too brisk--mid fifties to low sixties--just the right temps for outside fun!
