We had a ton of turkey's in our campgroud, there where like 10 right there but they were everywhere also.

For Labor Day this year we decided to take a family trip to Mt. Rushmore. We went camping at a great little camp ground Kemps Kamp in Keystone, South Dakota it was a great location. We went with 2 other families and had so much fun. We left friday and got there around 7:00 we got our camp ground all set up and headed out for Mexican food that night for dinner. Saturday we headed to Mt. Rushmore which was only 10 minutes away. It was really awesome. Then headed back to camp for lunch and a little swimming. When everyone was rested and feed we headed over to the Alpine slide. It's a huge slide that you take a tram up to and slide down on a sled type thing, so fun, the kids had a blast, so did the adults. Then back to camp for taco salad. Sunday we had breakfast burritos for breakfast before we went to the wind caves, it's the 4th longest cave in the world. It was really cool but I did get a little claustrophobic(sp). Then we drove by Crazy Horse. Then we visited The Flinstones Amusement Park for lunch it was a really cute place. Then headed back to camp to get ready for the lighting ceremony at Mt. Rushmore. They have a whole program and it made me a little emotional, very neat. Then headed back for hamburgers and hot dogs for a late dinner. Monday we got all packed up and went to Cosmos Mystery area. Some say its a hoax but we thought it was entertaining and I'm a believer! We then headed to our last stop before heading home, Story Book Island. The kids had a ball. It was a huge park with story book characters and lot's of toys to play on and a little train ride too. We had a great time and are looking to more family trips that aren't just to visit family. Family's great but these other trips are great too. We are looking forward to our trip to Vegas in October and then to Minneapolis in November. Mall of America here we come, oh and Chicago Bears game too!
