Day 5: Reptile Gardens After breakfast we went to dinosaur park again, but during day time. Then we spent most of the day at Reptile Gardens, where I enjoyed seeing the prairie dogs and the huge Tortoise. We then went to Watiki water park near the hotel, and ordered Marco's pizza for dinner.

Day 4- Bear Country USA I enjoyed the drive thru to see the various animals, especially the bears and bighorn goat. I loved to watch the baby bears! We had picnic there, then went to cosmos mystery area. It was an unique experience where I felt a strong force pulling. We dropped by Mt Rushmore to get Joy's and Stephanie's ranger badges. We then checked in Residential Inn in Rapid City around 4pm, when Phoebe attended her online class. We ordered from Kathmandu Bistro for dinner, and ate at the hotel. We chilled at McDonald's, and just relaxed the rest of the evening.

Day 3- Custer State Park Went to swim in the morning, then went to Sylvan Lake to picnic and hike. Then we went to the visitor's center to watch video about the park. We managed to do the wild loop road and saw bison and donkeys. I especially enjoyed feeding the donkeys! Evening we dined at Maria's Mexican food.

Day 2- Mt Rushmore We went to Mt Rushmore and took LOTS of pictures, did half of the trail, and bought a shirt with some postcards. I ate buffalo burger at Barlee's, and went gold panning. Phoebe and I loved it the most. I had 13 gold flakes by myself, and she had 8. Went to dinosaur park, and ordered Popeye's. Went swimming with Joy, and I won $10 at Cadillac Jack's!

Day 1- Badlands National Park After breakfast, I went to Cadillac Jack Casino with dad to use the free $15 slot machines, and $10 free for dad. I only won $3, and he won $2. Last night I won $13.50! We went to Badlands and had a blast- we climbed many hills, saw the prairie dogs, and soaked in the beautiful views.
Badlands Tour!
