Day 2: After the cousins are off to school, we desert Aunt Tonya to her busy day and head off to Lake Mead and Hoover Dam. The weather is really warm, and really windy, which makes the warm bearable, but occasionally threatens to blow us over.
|The windy picnic. Think sandwiches that are dry before you're done making them.|
|Lake Mead is beautiful!|
|The wind whipped up some dirt with the water by the shore.|
|Dan with "crystal rocks". He loved Lake Mead!|
|Hoover Dam spillway (we think) -- it was really amazing.|
|Jake and Derek. Derek was meant to be born in Hawaii I think!|
|Dan, Derek, and Tia|
|The Hoover Dam is awesome.|
|Connor kept Dan from blowing away on the windy bridge that crosses above the dam.|
|This is the bridge we walked across (halfway)|
Writing about more days today would overload you with pictures. These two days were our warmest weather wise and we did have a really good time.
