Custer Cemetary

One thing that we did up in South Dakota this year was check out the very old cemetary. It was my kids first time visiting the cemetary. I love coming to them. They are such peaceful places. In High School there was one not too far from my house. I spent a lot of time walking through it when my parents thought I was in bed, or during the day with my friends. It was fun to take the kids here and watch their eyes light up as they "discovered" history. We did grave rubbings....
This one was a little sad, from the late 1800s. a little 2 year old girl and her parents
This headstone was my favorite. Just simple made from native rocks and chunks of glass, also very old from mid 1800s
