Spring Market and Frühlingsfest


On Saturday I headed to Main Street Square with Sissy and Bubba to check out the Spring Market and hear a bit of bluegrass music from the local band Six Mile Road.


The event wasn't nearly as busy as I had anticipated, nor were there as many vendors as I expected. Maybe the overcast dreary skies and the forecast of rain kept many people home. 


This is only the second year for this event so maybe it just needs a bit more attention so that people will know it is there and join the event. The kids and I enjoyed ourselves non the less. There were some really neat looking items like the lambs wool feather dusters and handmade iron works. The beading supplies were Sissy's favorite. Bubba was most impressed by the artificial turf... lol


Thank you for stopping by I hope you have enjoyed this mini look at Rapid City, South Dakota. To enjoy more virtual travel, or share about your town join the virtual travelers for Sunday In My City with Unknown Mami.

Fragging on Friday

It's Friday!
If you follow the wonderful Mrs. 4444's you know what that means.

Half-Past Kissin' Time

I have decided to make it a time for me to compile bits and pieces of what is going on in my life and share it here. Kind of a way to say yes I am still alive and kicking, so here goes.

Last night turned out to be a bit of a wild night. I was all set to get this post together and posted to the blog when Lexi went into a really nasty asthma attack. One would think that with three asthmatic's in the house there would be a rescue inhaler in every room, but nope. As a matter of fact all three inhalers were empty! Thankfully we do have a nebulizer, but when that didn't seem to be helping I made a call into 911. It was a very tense ten minutes before they arrived and were rushing her to the ER. After another neb treatment and steroids to open up her airways Lexi was breathing much better and released to come home.

It happened! 
The contestant that I was hoping would win the voice won! If you haven't heard Sawyer Fredericks sing check out this video of his first official original song.



Bit by bit my creativity is coming back and I have even managed to take advantage of the occasional nice day here and there to capture a bit of the scenery around me and even enjoy a nice lunch downtown.


The old Fairmont Creamery building on main street in down town rapid has a nice little sandwich shop on the lower lever and a cool record store on the main level. That is where I snapped the idea and photo for this next image.


Wishing all a safe Memorial Day weekend!
