Yesterday Eric was conferencing all day. Cordelia and I did a little exploring. We discovered that our hotel is right next to Toys R Us...so yeah we managed to escape without buying anything, she's still so young and innocent, she doesn't know about buying and I probably will never teach her.
Eric has totally adopted the term SoDak into the family vernacular, it's pretty awesome although I kind of think I'll whisper it if I'm near any native SoDakans (South Dakotans).
We also went and checked out the downtown which is pretty cute. Very touristy. While we were in an antique store I spotted a Frenchman and in my mind I had an entire conversation in French. I am technically a French speaker, but I get all sweaty and nervous when I am around the real deal. I did manage an au revoir after a brief conversation and he seemed genuinely surprised and complimented me on my accent.
There are also a bunch of presidential bronze sculptures about town and Eric haaaad to take these shots. We tried to get Cordelia giving Jimmy C. a high five, but it wasn't meant to be.
After our tour of downtown Rapid City we went out to dinner and had some tasty vegan black bean burgers.
We ended the day with a dip in the hotel pool. Kind of a big deal for me because a) it's been a small eternity since I've been in a swim suit and b) I generally refer to swimming pools as cesspools. Anyway, we had a great time with the little lady who looked sooooo adorable in her swimsuit.
What did you do yesterday?
