Sagers South Dakota Summer 2011

Our whole trip!

Part of the kidlets at the Motel we stayed at the first night in Rock Springs, WY

At Martin's Cove, the kids got a chance to pull handcarts

I took a turn too, and sufficed to say, I wouldn't have made a great pioneer.

Becca was her own handcart, though she would have gotten to ride in the handcart in Pioneer times.

I'll take little kid for the win please, Mr. Davidson

Two deer who got into a physical argument, and ended up starving to death.

The whole family!

  1. I was hoping you would come link up this week. I am always so impressed with your obvious prioritization, (is that really a word?) of family. I really admire you for realizing what is so important on this Earth. Thanks for being a great example to families and individuals all over.
