Driving Day

They put the dvd player in between them so they could both see. Ethan has his own.

We watched the temperature rise from the 70's to the 100's as we drove from San Diego to Ivins, Utah. The boys watched Sponge Bob: The Movie, and Robert and I watched the scenery. There wasn't much until we got to Las Vegas. Then we saw a car engulfed in flames on the side of I-15 and three crazy crashes. Once we were past "The Strip," however, traffic eased and drivers seemed to keep their eyes more on the road.

We were disappointed to learn that there is no such thing as a $6.99 all-you-can-eat prime rib buffet. There is, however, a $49 all-you-can-eat buffet at The Bellagio. We did not stop.

If I can stay awake, I'll sit out side and watch for meteors later this evening. Friday and Saturday were the big viewing days, but  there might be a few meteors still left for viewing tonight. It's 10pm and still pretty hot outside.

I'm enjoying reading about your adventures, especially since we recently returned from our own crazy 3-days at theme parks (in Orlando). I'm still in a daze.
