Click to preview The "Giddyup Cowgirls" in North Dakota! photo book

In August of 2009, Paige and Devin Gesme packed up their saddlebags, sharpened their spurs, loaded up their bucking broncos, and headed to the wild west...well, as far west as The Badlands of North Dakota anyhow. They brought their grandma, Connie Bickman, with for good humor...and to pay for things!

Everyone agreed – it was a great adventure!

They made up silly songs, kept a notebook of interesting things they saw along the way, visited with the Sandvick relatives and learned some about the Sandvick family history, they all took plenty of photos, and had lots of stories to share! See for yourself...
