A fun Independence Day

Buffalo Ridge Camp Resort
Custer, SD

We hope everyone had a fun 4th!
George and I certainly did!

We started out having breakfast with some fellow RVers..

Jim, JC, me, Steve, Phil, Rudee, Joan, and George. Bev took the picture!

Afterwards, we went outside to watch the parade.
It definitely had that small town feel,
no floats,
but it was to celebrate our independence.
The parade was started with a flyover by a B-1 bomber.
It was loud!
Then the Veteran's marched with the flags..

This guy carried a cool Custer flag..

Even Uncle Sam was there!

There were some great old cars..

The parade ended with fire engines, sheriff cars,
and lots of sirens!

We said our goodbyes to our friends,
then walked around some of the vendor booths.

Last night we were invited over to Marlene & Danny's
for a barbecue.

Everyone there shared something,
a salad, bread, desserts.

Marlene provided the ribs and corn on the cob.
It was all delicious!

We had a brief rain shower which provided a
beautiful rainbow!

There was great socializing,
and soon it was time for the fireworks.
Custer puts on a great show,
and we were blessed to be able to see it
from the campground.

It was a terrific day!

Today we're heading to Mt. Rushmore to see the sights :-)


  1. Enjoy Mt. Rushmore! I totally loved it there, breath taking!

  2. Looks like a wonderful 4th of July with so many friends. Really beautiful looking desserts. Love that flag and the carrot cake, how creative. I wouldn't need any real food just dessert. Pretty sweet not to have to drive anywhere to see the fireworks.

  3. Never knew Uncle Sam was so tall. You learn something new every day! ;c)

  4. Love those small town parades. Lucky you to have such a great view of the fireworks from your campground -- and no traffic to deal with afterwards!
