This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Fruit Shoot™. As always, all opinions are my own. This summer has been a crazy one friends! We have literally only had one weekend this summer, where we weren’t out of town or home and busy with something (like weddings, holidays). We’ve been on 4 short…

We took our family on a trip through the Dakotas this summer. I had never really given Mount Rushmore and that area a lot of thought as a family vacation. But we  had a family event in North Dakota and figured we better stop. And we are so very glad! It was amazing! There was…
