Rock Falls Day 2 part 2

Here are some pictures I took Sunday evening. This place was the coolest place in Sioux Falls if you ask me. They had a light show every night around 9:30 that flashed on the biggest part of the falls. They also told a little history of Sioux Falls. We watched the light show the night before.

This night was just Coltan, Carson, and I. Cody went on with his team to eat pizza. This area was very cool. They let the kids play out on the rocks and in the water but Coltan was too cool for that. He did walk around on the rocks and helped me with Carson so I could take some pictures.

This is just one section that we walked out on. This water fall and rocks was every bit of a couple blocks big. These pictures just doesn't do justice for the the beauty of this place. You could just sit there for hours and enjoy the view! This is how the area was all around the falls. A lot of people were out walking on it.
Coltan NOT smiling. He says it was because the sun was in his eyes....yea right.
Just the three of us. Wish Cody was with us.

This is my favorite one. That was a house that was built in the 1850's. I cannot remember all the history in it between reading a lot of history in all the places we went and keeping an eye on Carson.

This area here was part of the light show. The lights would change between blues, reds, yellows, to white. Very cool to watch. Now I'm sad I didn't try to take any pictures.
Another one of my favorites to look at.
This was at the bottom of the falls.

Little known fact - I lived in South Dakota for 9 months back in 1982-83 (my senior year in high school). I think I would have loved it, if only I had been vacationing there. Great pictures though,and I'm glad you had a great time.

You amaze me at how active you are!! I just got back from vacation and was catching up on your blogs...you did so much while you were in S. Dakota!! The boys will always remember those trips....they are lucky to have you as their mom! Cody had an excellent tournament as well...we always enjoy watching him play. Call me later and catch up!

Absolutely gorgeous pictures!

I remember there was a stage I went through where I didn't smile for the camera either and boys are worse! Ha!

Yes, we were in Kansas City but for less then a day and a half. :( It was jam packed with trying to fit in seeing family. I wish I had more time to see everyone and have our canasta date! I will hopefully be back sometime this fall for a long period of time. I will definitely let you know when that is. I am looking forward to meeting you and your cute boys!
