Goodbye Sweet August!

August has been a great month. Between a prairie dog hunt and getaway at a beautiful sanctuary/lodge, a trip out to the Black Hills to see Cody's entire immediate family and surprise his mom, puppies being born, rodeos, an earthquake, lots of visits from our parents and grandparents, DIY projects at home, nice weather, hot weather, and friends over for BBQ's we couldn't have rounded out the last month of summer more spectacularly!

We we're blessed with some fallish weather, and have then been brutally awakened to the fact that it's still August with days in the 100s. We had a few of those recently. How have we been staying cool? With water and lots of ice cream from Zesto's and Schwan's of course!

Grace did great in the water this summer. By the end, she was a pro! Here are a couple videos of her swimming away at the face of the Oahe Dam. Sorry for the quick "dam tour" in the first video. I must have been compelled to capture the "beauty" of the power structures!

Doesn't Grace have excellent, elegant diving skills? I'll say!

And of course, we cannot enjoy August without a little backyard water adventure! She got this crazy fun sprinkler ball for her birthday from our friend Pat. Fun gift!

Happy September to you all - we hope that you were able to enjoy August as much as we were. It was a grand month - we hope and pray that next year will be more of a "normal" summer so that we can enjoy the water recreation in Pierre at its finest!
