On day 4 of our road trip from Texas to South Dakota, we headed to the Sioux Falls Gun Range for Dave and Mara’s wedding. Mara is Justin’s aunt. As you can see, above, Justin and I had matching yellow leis. We were all dressed in colourful flowers for the Hawaiin themed celebration.
Day 4: U.S Family Road Trip
Surprise! The groom was walked down the isle with a gun to his back by grandma Dort (Mara’s mother)!! This was very entertaining, especially since the wedding was held at a gun range.

Time to toss the bouquet
I CAUGHT IT! I guess this means that Justin and I will be the next in the family to get married. We better hurry up and make that happen. Unfortunately for us, it will take a lot more than a road trip across a country to organise our big day!!
Sue says, “YES! Do it!!”
Just kidding. Sue was singing her heart out. We all were. This is where the night got crazy fun. We were all on the dance floor – singing, dancing, and jumping around.
Good times for all!
We stayed up late partying the night away with the family. The RV was parked on the gun range grounds, and we had been walking there to take the dogs out every couple of hours during the night. We slept on the gun range – well, there’s something you don’t do every day! The following morning, we were all tired from the wedding reception, but we were eager to get some sight-seeing done.
Congratulations to Dave and Mara.
We wish you a lifetime of happiness together!!
Back on the road for us,
More coming soon.
