Ashraf Family Road-Trip Vlog!

Hey, Hey My Babes!

I seriously can't wait for you all to watch my newest Vlog. It is probably one of my favourites so far!

As a lot of you already know we had to cut our trip short because our SUV was broken into and all of our stuff was taken but I still wanted to share what I filmed up to that point! I hope you all enjoy watching my insane family and I road trip to Cali! 

As always if you have any questions or comments feel free to leave them down below and don't forget to follow me on all my socials so you never miss a thing!

I hope you guys have a great Sunday!

Sioux Falls, South Dakota!

First of all I think you guys need to know that there was a waterfall in the middle OF THE CITY!img_8584 This is the middle of Sioux Falls and now you can see why it is called Sioux "Falls". Sioux Falls was absolutely stunning, we stopped to see these rapids/falls after leaving Mt. Rushmore because my mom was dying to see them. They were created 14,000 years ago during the last Ice Age. Manny, Sid, and the gang totally drank from these guys ;) Im glad we did because it was absolutely beautiful. You can literally walk right up to the falls as close as you want to get.img_8580img_8590

I loved that there were no barriers. It was SUPER windy but otherwise the weather was perfect. These rapid/falls are right in the middle of a gorgeous park that you can walk around or have a picnic in. They also have some old ruins of the Queen Bee Mill which I loved because Im the history nut in this family!img_8623img_8624

Across from the ruins were some statues that I had to get pictures with because they were adorable. img_8635

And how could you not love this buffalo guys?img_8633

I touched the butt ;)img_8598img_8595

 

I definitely recommend stopping here in Sioux Falls if you ever have the chance or are close by because it is so stunning and very historical. Plus this area is just so relaxed and definitely is a good place to stretch your legs if you're on a road trip like we were.

If you have ever been to Sioux Falls I would love to know what you thought of it so don't be shy! And don't forget to follow me on all my social media so you can watch my travels and other endeavours unfold.

Mt. Rushmore 

Seeing as it's Election Day it just seemed fitting that I would share my Mt. Rushmore experience and pictures with you guys.img_8568 I have to say I have literally wanted to see Mt. Rushmore forever but never as bad until I watched National Treasure 2 because I love those movies SO hardcore. I'm a total history nerd so I always found it interesting but that movie made me want to go hunt for some kind of treasure in George Washingtons head.img_8547

Now I'm being totally serious when I say I thought you could literally hike up to the top where all 4 presidents faces are and like take selfies or whatever with them. So it was a little disappointing when I found out that you had to stay down below. Regardless it was still stunning to see and amazing that it was carved into an actually mountain especially considering it was started in the 20s.

img_8564img_8566 I love how they have the pillars with all the states and when they were admitted leading towards the balcony where everyone is taking pictures of Rushmore. My fam bam and I had a blast looking for all our states. I was born in Tennessee as the pic above implies, my brother was born in Texas as was my mom, and my dad was born in Pakistan so he was just out of luck ;P

Finally we made our way to the balcony and of course had to get another picture with the four best presidents! It's definitely the perfect spot for selfie taking too if you want one! img_8559img_8557

Even though I couldn't get as close as I imagined and didn't find any treasure It was still a breathtaking sight. Even people who aren't completely obsessed with history will most definitely enjoy themselves and the gorgeous sight that is Mt. Rushmore.
