We saw "The Thing" in Arizona. If you haven't heard of it (and I hadn't either), there are 8 bazillion billboards in the 150 or so miles surrounding it on I-10. SO, when we got to the actual truck stop that boasted "The Thing," we exited the highway and got out of the car. We even paid $1.75 to see what the heck "The Thing" was. It's a mummy. Or maybe something made to look like a mummy? Not altogether sure, but it's old and dusty and under plexiglass. Well worth the $1.75 we spent. :)
We saw the Hoover Dam. If you haven't heard of it, where are you people living? :) It was huge and very cool. There were a lot of people walking around as well - especially considering the fact that there is ABSOLUTELY nothing around it. Well, except Lake Mead, but you already knew that!
Call me crazy, but I honestly didn't know cacti really looked like this! You notice I didn't pull over (or really even slow down) to take this particular picture. The temperature on the dashboard said 108. I hiked the AC up a notch and kept on drivin.'
So, we are finally here, in Las Vegas. Here's the best part of being here. Being back together, and of course, playing in our backyard! As you can see, Chase and divine hubby are wrestling the native wildlife out of the pool!
