Family Trip To North Dakota- Part I

The family came out out to visit from San Diego last month, Pops, sister and brother-in-law all came out for a rollicking good time.  It was my Dad's second visit, but the first time for my sister and brother-in-law, and they all seemed to have a good time.  Here are some photo highlights (Part I).
Dad was bad, Professor Cummings is mad.
He gets a talking to.  Behave, don't let this be you. 
One of our favorites from the University of North Dakota Museum of Modern Art.  OK, maybe not a favorite, but one of the few pieces that didn't cause us both to say "what the crap is THIS?"  It's just simply a seal drinking through a straw.  Riiiight.

The folks at the Museum of Modern Art were very, very nice and chatted with us for quite a while.  The thing is that I really don't "get" most modern art.  Oh well.  If you're thinking that we went to see a modern art museum because we're super smart, hoity toity types, you'd be way off.  We went because it was raining and we couldn't play golf that day.  
We took a hike through Turtle River State Park, just west of Grand Forks.  It was even lovelier than it looks in the picture, and there were tons of magnificent things for the pups to smell. 
Three generations of well dressed Chappell family members.  Their respective signature attire: floppy hat, plaid shorts, lots and lots of spots.  It's almost like an Abercrombie & Fitch ad....almost.
