A bit of home came to us for a few days. Our friends from NC visited! It was nice spending time with them and seeing sites together neither of us had seen before.
We finally washed our car. Found an awesome car wash with power air guns.
The kids mostly played.
The girls were excited to see their friend and play in the pool a while.
And explore the desert a bit at dusk.
I love this picture of them against the sky at dusk.
And the silhouette of the mountains at night fall.
A short cruise to the strip. Lady Liberty is wearing a mask.
Not sure why a picture of all of us together didn’t make it to my phone.
But I got a few of us together at Hoover Dam.
This thing is massive.
A true engineering masterpiece.
My acrophobia was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be walking across the dam.
The girls and I said goodbye to our friends and sent our car back across the country with them. Then went to shop for bathing suits. We have officially warn out or left in a hotel all of ours on this trip.
Got some milkshakes too since it was 90 degrees.
Well, that was the excuse.
This pool has been a nice Oasis in the Nevada sun.
The girls have been dying for Ramen noodles, so we found the best.
Oh my gracious, homemade Ramen is delicious. This is our first experience with fresh! Now we are going to have to try making it at home. We watched a few videos before bed and it doesn’t look too hard!
Counting down the last two days of our trip. Talking about the things we are going to make and do when we get home. This has been such an incredible journey for us. Time enough to really enjoy as well as begin longing for home again .
