South Dakota -- gotta see it!
A quick note with highlight photos to say that we are back from our long weekend in South Dakota. We had a lot of fun. Our stops included a visit to the Corn Palace in Mitchell, The Badlands, Wall Drug (where Alex rode the jack-a-lope), saw a double rainbow on our way to Mount Rushmore and we visited an 1100 acre wild horse refuge with its herd of 700 horses.
Lookin For Trouble, Ian & me (Janet) pictured. I worked in PR for almost 20 years and now work in the Travel & Leisure world. Ian works as a business analyst. We were living in Spain, but in 2005 to be closer to most of our children and to my parents, we decided to move from Catalonia to Minnesota. I am a mother of two sons Richard (1980) in Minneapolis and Michael (1977), who lives/works in Barcelona with his Catalan wife, Natalia. Ian’s children, Alexandra (1989) and Peter (1992), live in Canada. My father is Nicaraguan and lives in Managua. My mother is American from Scotch, Irish, French, British extraction. Ian (1956) is British with good Scottish roots. We enjoy our Arabian horses, listening to public radio news, travel, and cooking programs, plus TV shows like The Amazing Race, Downton Abbey, and Call The Midwife. This blog is about our various life adventures since coming to the US in 2005.
