South Dakota Vacation: Day 2

Tuesday, many roads were still shut down from the storm so we decided to stay local.  We visited The Mammoth Site and Pioneer Museum.

After that, Susan showed me how to make spaghetti sauce from scratch (yum).  Then, we drove through neighborhoods, walked through the park and played around at the house.

But, an exception was made for this year’s Rollin’ Thru the Park!
