The Corn Palace and Visiting Amber

Leaving Saint Joseph, we continued on toward Omaha, Nebraska. We passed it before we really realized we were in it, then passed through Sioux Falls to get to Mitchell, SD. Destiny has a middle school friend named Amber who had been waiting eagerly for our arrival. We spent the first night at the park and picked up Amber the next day. The kids played mini golf, had chicken sandwiches and swam a bit in the pool. We watched two movies that Amber and Hayden hadn't seen, then I took Amber home.

The next day, we picked up Amber again, and went to the Corn Palace. We walked around, picked up a few souvenirs, took some photos, and bought some delicious popcorn balls.

Afterwards, we all went to a birthday lunch at Ruby Tuesday, and it was delicious. The salad bar was excellent, and a stranger gave us a coupon for a bit of a savings as well. Pirates of the Caribbean was playing at the local theater, so we decided to go see it. Sarah loves going to the movies, and none of us had seen it yet.

After the movie we swung by Dairy Queen, and picked up a birthday cake for Sarah. At the trailer we lit the candles and sang Happy Birthday. The kids went outside to make s'mores over the fire. It was a nice day and I'm sure Sarah enjoyed it, and it was nice to have a few extra people to celebrate it with us. Tomorrow we head toward Mount Rushmore, and the Badlands.
