July In Review

July was a month of people.

Actually, it was so much more than that, but trying to narrow it down to a few events has proven fruitless. Bear with me. There are a lot of things to summarize.

It started with a trip to Minneapolis. Some sightseeing, food and beverages while visiting the Admiral, then a big family wedding...





Wedding survivors!

And then Mia Sorella and Jay turned up.

They had a month of in-between-ness and turned up in Rapid. Which among other things meant a lot of cat pictures.


And some enjoyment of Rapid City's downtown.



And all of the food.


Then Shorty joined us for some Pokemon.


There was boating, biking, and hiking to be had as well.





The sand mines by Deerfield.

 
The Strato Bowl from a new angle.


Then, just for fun, I had a mess of other friends turn up. All on the same weekend, too.



The weird part about this is that I don't have any pictures of you, Ashli. What happened there?

Finally, there was also a family reunion.




Heck, that wasn't even all of it. I've got so many pictures of meals and wine, of short hikes and open fields, blurry pictures of the Badlands going by, and even more goofy selfies. There was the fire on the 4th, the long drives, and nights spent talking until the wee hours of the morning.

It was a full and complete month, in other words.

And I'm still a little amazed that everything fit in 31 days...
