A Weekend In Sioux Falls, South Dakota

We recently returned from a lovely weekend getaway down in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. We stayed with my husband’s sister’s family, and they showed us a great time.

In addition to relaxing in their quiet backyard, we spent an afternoon down at Falls Park enjoying the Sioux Falls. We walked from downtown to Falls Park, approaching the waterfalls from behind and creating a unique experience.

I had a great time taking pictures all weekend.

I think they started saying, “I’m hot, I’m tired,” shortly after this photo was taken.
