On our way to Mount Rushmore we decided to drive through Badlands National Park.
Our boys especially loved these rock formations and climbing all over them.
What a beautiful country we live in!
After stopping for dinner at Five Guys (yum!) we made it to Mount Rushmore. The kids were so excited to see this. The older kids had been there when they were very, very little (John had some memories of it). So it was fun to revisit this remarkable National Landmark.
We stayed for the lighting ceremony. The coolest part about that was that they showed a video which basically showed everything we'd just visited - - Arlington, Statue of Liberty, DC Memorials & Monuments, etc. It was a perfect recap and ending to our trip!
