LONG Ride Home!!
We woke up Sunday and went down for breakfast and packed up the van and off we were. We werent headed home yet but headed to see Hoover Dam. It was about half hour or 45 min from Vegas. We went and took a tour inside the Dam which was crazy to think we were in the middle of that massive wall. That only lasted a half hour or so. After the tour we went and changed the kids and then went to the gift shop. We got to drive across the Dam also and then headed back to Vegas. We stop at some of the knock off shops there and I got some way cute stuff there!! I love the knock off shops there for some reason. Then we started our journey home. We stopped in Mesquite for food and gas and back on the road. The ride there was fairly easy. No meltdowns or anything but the ride home was a bit different. It seemed to be a lot longer of a drive with 2 very restless and uncomfortable kids. I did my best to keep them happy and entertained. They werent horrible or anything but they werent happy that is for sure!! We finally made it home around 9:30pm or somewhere around there. I didnt see my kids much on Monday!! They slept and slept and slept!! It was nice so I could catch up on laundry and unpacking. We all had a blast and the kids were great for what we put them through but I dont think we will do anymore vacations or road trips with them til Disneyland in October!! They need a break from the craziness of vacations til them!! Thanks Gran for such a wonderful and memorable vacation!!!
