Sioux Falls is the largest city in South Dakota. This might be our last chance, in awhile, to get our hair cut. Steve found a barber and I made a later appointment at a salon. Since it takes me longer, Steve was a hero and did all of our laundry while I went to the salon. 

All I needed was a trim and touch ups on my long layers, which fair enough had grown pretty long. It's amazing how often people in their trade have no idea what I'm talking about so I was specific in explaining the long side layers and not random chopping of my hair. I specifically asked for someone good with layers because so many stylist don't seem to get it. Bad layers looks like you put your hair through the blender. I was not shocked when I saw her go to work. In the end, I needed the trim more then I needed an artist so she kind of just did this whole semi layer thing along the edges, everywhere (not the sides). With the cut she was giving me, it was more like a trim and I could easily have it fixed. I hate not knowing where to go while traveling. Definitely one of the negative aspects. Although, I once got my hair done in Bangkok, expecting the worst, and came out with the best haircut of my life! 

The next day we met up with Steve's parents and walked around Sioux Falls Park. It's worth the stop if you are in the area. Then we went to Corn Palace where the building is decorated in everything corn. Similar to Jelly Belly art, they use corn to depict Indian art and other notable images which are re-done every so often.

The weather was so hot outside that on our way to the Badlands, Chuck offered to buy us ice cream. We pulled over at a restaurant and a waitress sat us at a table. We noticed a chip on the woman's shoulder as she had a bit of attitude while asking for our order. We hadn't even seen the menu! We asked to see the menu which seemed to irritate her. She brought our floats and basically threw down out spoons. I had to check my temper, being in front of family, and just gave her a look like, "Are you serious?!" She walked away as we sat there in disbelief over the service. Who does that?! I sure hope she enjoyed spending the penny we left her!
