Life As It Use To Be

A travel blog entry by patry

This is a top pick!

We went back and forth about whether or not we should drive a couple hours north straying from our direct route east. In the small town of De Smet, South Dakota was the Ingalls Homestead and we both guessed it would be a pretty great place. Aimee had grown up reading all of Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House on the Prairie" books and we both watched the tv show as kids. It was going to be ...

Day 27 - Laura Ingalls Homesite

We headed outside where the kids (all of them) played on the old fashion ...

Day 4: De Smet, SD

A travel blog entry by zyd85


... here in De Smet. Our tour guide, April, was really great and very tolerant of our (well, really, Mom’s) many questions.

We visited the actual site (see photo of Mom at the Historical Marker), before getting in the long line of cars entering the pageant. We were fortunate to ...
