We should have known some crazy Aussies would make the journey. The one thing we learned while traveling in Australia is that many of the Aussie's have seen more of the states then most Americans.

David and I spent a memorable trip driving across Kansas and he even made it up to South Dakota to do a little R&R in the before moving on. There are so many memorable things about David's trip that we continue to laugh and can't wait to see him again.
While out on the road David and I were able to meet up with two very special friends. Angus Street & Elly Daley. Angus and Elly served as our tour guides while in Australia and we love them. They were both mixing business with pleasure on their US trip and were unable to get up to South Dakota to spend time at the Hadrick place but were able to meet up for supper in Denver one night. You may notice that My Cowboy was not in the picture. He was home working while I was out having fun.

We had visited Ray & Leah at their place in Queensland on our last trip. We were able to spend a short day with them and their wonderful family at their house. These crabs are from the ocean that their land touches. They were amazing! Leah and I hit it off right away. I really admire her for the rural life she leads and homeschooling her oldest child while balancing the two younger children. Leah has to homeschool her son because of how far they live from town.
Vella's had been on the road for almost a month when they arrived in South Dakota. We were so excited that they were able to spend a few days with us. I paraded Leah through the schools for show and tell and Ray helped install a new fence at the feedlot. It was great to catch up with them and look forward to the time when we can get back to their place and spend some time.

So, to all our Aussie friends that have not been here- the spare room is ready! Fall is coming on- so you might want to wait until spring it's a much better experience when it's not cold. Can't wait to see you!
