April just started yesterday, I swear, and suddenly it’s almost over and I haven’t posted what I intended to post.

A couple of weeks ago, the family headed to North and South Dakota on a multi-purpose trip. Along the way, Eldest Son got happy with the camera, taking pictures of the scenery, which was decidedly flat in North Dakota and slightly more rolling in South Dakota. (Not that it takes much to be more rolling than North Dakota.)

We had heard the reports of flooding along the Red River (our nephew helped with sandbagging), but were surprised to see evidence of flooding in other areas of the two states. All along the roadways, water covered the fields, so much so in some places that it appeared as though the fields had become lakes. Photographic proof of the South Dakota leg of the trip from Eldest Son below. Forgive the blurriness. He shot these as we were driving.

In order to prove that South Dakota is more than flooded fields, here are a couple of photos of interesting buildings in Aberdeen:
