Welcome to Prarie Pi. This blog exists to journal and document the memories that our family experiences. Pi is "an amount of type that has been jumbled or thrown together at random." We hope to assemble in words and pictures the daily thoughts and activities that happen in our household. We do this to help those that are distant from us get a glimpse into our days so that the miles that separate us won't keep us apart.

4th Of July 2014

We went to a wonderful parade and it started out with a great big candy drop.

All the candy was dropped at once vs. lots of people throwing throught the parade.
155
All the kids ended up with a 1/2 bag full!
163
It was a beautiful day and we sat in the shade of a big oak tree.
168
We were able to share the day with Grandma and Grandpa H.

A Day At The Lake

181
Our favorite day of the South Dakota vacation was our day at the lake!
196
A sandy shore....
203
....a clear, warm day....
204
...and a jet ski on open water....
210
....all equaled a day filled with special memories!
211
Of course, sharing this day with cousins made it even better!
215
Baby Anton was excited to go on the "Vroom, Vroom!"
217
And I think his big brothers were even more excited to take him on his first ride!
218
As you can see, Baby Anton came back very wet.....the jet ski tipped over during their ride!
255
Baby Anton also fell and bumped and scraped his nose on the sidewalk....
251
....but, that didn't keep him from enjoying the day!
223
Nacho loved looking for rocks and either skipped them or put them in his rock collection.

We all had smiles of contentment on our faces by the end of the day!

The giddyness of cartwheels mixed in with the satisfaction of contentment....that is what vacation is all about!
