Dinosaur park is one of the places we stopped at while on our vacation. Rapid City was our last stop. We visited family there and saw other fun places as well. Just wanted to share a few photos from this neat little place. 🙂
Dinosaur Park is located at 940 Skyline Drive on 20 acres and is home to historic life-sized concrete dinosaur figures. It is a very popular destination for tourists and local residents alike. Skyline Drive is a scenic roadway that runs along the hogback ridge that divides Rapid City geographically east and west. The dinosaur figures, constructed in the late 1930’s, are listed on the Register of Historic Places.
Yellowstone was amazing! We got to see “Old Faithful” and many other beautiful places. Here are just a few of the many photos I took while there.
Old Faithful Geyser!
Well let me start off by saying we had a GREAT time on our little vacation! It was awesome seeing everyone after so many years have passed. My mother & father are doing good, despite health problems. It was SO good to see them again. It was my girls’ first time meeting their grandparents. It was such a special time!
The drive there was long yes, but it was very exciting! Seeing all of the states and different things was fun. The girls did great, too! There was only one instance where Jacey was tired and couldn’t get comfy to sleep. That was when we split our trip up and stayed the night in a hotel. Ok, let me change that to MOTEL…lol! Was NOT a fan of the place, but it was 11:30 at night and we HAD to stop. It wasn’t a slum, but just not the greatest. :/
We slept, got up in the morning, had breakfast & was back at it. We arrived in Savannah, Georgia that evening at around 10:30-11:00 pm. So that was the drive there. The time we spent there was great. It also helped that we had a great hotel to stay in..lol. We had a nice little suite with separate bedrooms & bathrooms, a living area & kitchen. It was nice!
Monday we woke up refreshed and glad to have a good night’s sleep! We were also glad that we had no more traveling to do for awhile! So Monday morning we went downstairs and had breakfast in the hotel. It was delicious! They had so many things to choose from and it was FREE! Ha! Yes, this hotel offers free breakfast every morning, and free supper M-F! Woo-Hoo!
After breakfast we all got ready to leave for my mom & dad’s house. When we got there, my sisters were both there, my brother, one of my nephews, and brother-in-law. It was so exciting to see everyone. This is when my parents, one of my sisters & nephew got to meet my girls for the very first time! It was great! Jacey was a little shy (but only at first), and Jadyn was smiling & talking right from the start! 😀
After staying there for quite awhile, I wanted to show Jace & the girls around Savannah a little bit. So, we went downtown to Forsyth Park and down by the river on River Street. I took lots of photos in which I will have to share later. I have to get them off of my camera first! 😉
