North Dakota fun!

 A sunny AND warm day? Time to head over to Medora for some good times with Nana and Bopa!!
They have the greatest playground ever there. Seriously love it. Even if you could lose a child or two there if you blink...
Then we headed over to the Teddy Roosevelt National Park while the weather held. The girls were working hard on passing off the requirements to be sworn in as Jr. Park Rangers (to be finished another day). Everyone else was just chasing prairie dogs. Except G. She was studying buffalo chips. "Hmmm..how do they feel? What do they smell like? How much taller can I be if I stand on them?"
"Then again, those holes sure are interesting too! Probably mostly because all the grown-ups keep telling me not to stick my hands or feet in them!" We're just no fun. However, neither are the poisonous spiders and rattlesnakes that can hide in the holes.
Look! Buffalo babies! They look just like cow calves. When do their heads go from tiny and cute to massive and hairy?
Time to hike to the second highest peak in the park! Those are some steep steps for tiny legs, even if the second highest peak is only so high.
Of course, it would be helpful if tiny legs would accept help instead of being all "I do it!"
Regardless, it's less trouble when you look cute in cowboy, I mean, cowgirl boots.
Ta dah! Even Baby L made it to the top!
 Is it any wonder this area is called "Big Sky Country?" Stay away from that edge kids!
Neener, neener, neener.
Blah! (Thanks to Dude, this is now what she does when you ask her to smile. Thanks a lot Dude.)
All safe and sound and having fun! Sure do enjoy exploring. And sure do enjoy having Nana and Bopa here!!
