Spring Trip to the Black Hills

Here are some pictures from this past weekend when I went to the Black Hills with my husband's family! They rented out a gorgeous cabin and we packed just about as much as we could into two days. We got to see a bit of the pretty scenery, eat at a fun little cafe, play some Settlers of Catan, and just relax a bit! I am so thankful for a little getaway with some beautiful weather after the bitterly cold winter we just experienced. It was magical! Here are just a few snaps and family photos from the weekend.

The top bedroom on the balcony had a a window that overlooked the rest of the cabin. It was pretty glorious and I joked to everyone that I was going to wake them up early in the morning by singing at the top of my lungs for my animal minions like a Disney Princess. They were slightly amused, and also slightly terrified that I was being serious. I never joke about singing though. Never.

I did up my hair in a fishtail braid and little roll. I pretty much wore a scarf all weekend because, you know. Washing hair is for people who have way too much time on their hands. :)

We decided to take a couple of group photos with the remote to my camera. For this last one I yelled out, "Funny faces!" Apparently Sean's family doesn't do funny faces because myself and Sean's twin sister were the only two who obliged. Oh well, maybe next time, haha. Until then, Brandy and I will have to look like goofs together!

That's all for today!
Have a glorious Tuesday :)

God Bless,

Romans 5:8
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Black Hills, Black Hills... why does that sound so familiar?! I swear that on a family trip we've been there. I know we've passed through the Badlands multiple times and I feel like the Black Hills was there on that same trip... hmmm... such thinking, wahaha.

That window is such a cute little photo place! Yes, yes, you've definitely got to start singing out it! And then all the birdies and butterflies will flock to you and sing along. :D

Glad you had a great trip, Katie! I hope the rest of your week is just as dandy. <3 <3

Hhahaa, you're a real life Disney Princess. I would have shot a video of the singing, it would be priceless! :D
