My father-in-law turned 60 this year, so we decided to get the family together in South Dakota for a long weekend to celebrate.  Friday was a travel day to the cabins and in the evening we went to a presentation at Mount Rushmore.  Saturday we went to the Cosmos, Bear Country USA, and the Reptile Gardens.  Sunday morning, I talked Bill, Becky and Jamie into joining me for a hike to the South Dakota state highpoint.  Later in the afternoon we went swimming at the beach on Lake Sheridan.  Monday was a travel day.  It was a fun weekend and everyone enjoyed the hike.
