Mini Vaca to the South...

Wow time sure does fly; it has already been one month since the hubby and I took a mini vacation South ... Well not too far South but a round trip of about 1000 miles to the Black Hills in South Dakota. We hadn't been on a vacation {just the two of us} since we were married and decided we needed a little getaway! 

We wanted to camp while we were down there, we did some looking online and found a campsite very close to Sylvan Lake. Sylvan was one of our favorite places when we went to South Dakota in 2008 and we thought it would be nice to stay somewhere nearby the lake. The camping area was nice and had some convenient amenities but we decided next time we might try to find our own spot, somewhere more secluded without bathrooms and laundry; to us camping is more along the lines of roughin' it!! 

We have been to the Black Hills a handful of times separate and the one time {in '08} together and Steven had never golfed down there so this time we found a very nice golf course and I had a wonderful time riding along taking pictures while he golfed. The course and the scenery was amazing and I'm really glad we added this event to our To Do list.

Overall the trip was a successful one, we visited Crazy Horse and Sylvan Lake, did a wine tasting {I hardly had to twist the hubby's arm either}, got 2 pounds of fudge at the candy store {someone has a sweet tooth} and relaxed by the bonfire. I had a wonderful time having some 1 on 1 time with my husband; plus he makes a killer breakfast and even better s'mores!!

Have you ever been to the Black Hills? If not I highly recommend it at least once!
