I've been posting a lot of pictures from South Dakota the last month, so I thought I'd change it up a bit and put some photos up from the other trip I took... Mexico! My Mom took my three sisters and I down to the Cancun area for a long weekend over the 4th of July holiday. I had a really great time, and we stayed at a SUPER nice resort - Iberostar Paraiso del Mar. I've never stayed at an all inclusive hotel before, and it was crazy beautiful!

Beautiful lobby.

Flamingos just haning out.

Hammocks at the beach.

Beautiful swimming pool.

Different dining areas of the hotel.

Prairie Dogs

One of the cutest part of South Dakota was all the prairie dogs everywhere! They used to be endangered at one point, but now they're doing better. Yay doggies!

Badlands, SD

One of the most beautiful places we visited in South Dakota was the Badlands. The soil around the rock formations is being constantly eroded, leaving behind the exposed buttes, gullies, and ridges that we see. There are many fossils found throughout the Badlands. It was really, really hot the day we went, and there are no trees for shade. But the sky was clear, and that makes for beautiful photograph!

It is so hard to get a sense of depth in these photos, but these rocks stretch on for MILES.

I love these next two pictures because they were taken from a moving car. So they're a bit funky, but still show off the beautiful scenery!

The color of the rocks is so amazing!

Just beautiful.

You are allowed to climb on the rocks, so of course, we did! Here are my cousins Jordan and Cory hanging out.

Devils Tower

Some more South Dakota pictures here... although the Devils Tower is actually in Wyoming.

Beautiful sky that day!

My Dad and I being hardcore. Forgive the blury photo... it was taken by a 6 year old!
