Spring Break - Day Three!

On Day Three of our Spring Break trip to Las Vegas, we started the day by leaving the hotel in our car, in search of a really good, local breakfast place. We found a really outstanding place called Babystacks. Take a look at these Red Velvet Pancakes with Cream Cheese Syrup. Yep, they were every bit as good as they look!

After breakfast, we headed out of town, out to the Hoover Dam.

On our way, we saw twin Ferraris. I mean, how often do you see a Ferrari on the road? Much less, two of them, following each other? Only in Vegas!

We took the original road and drove over the dam itself.

It's a long way down.

Look - Arizona!

Look - Nevada!

Chris bought us tickets for the Visitor's Center and Power Plant Tour. I am still amazed at how well the girls did during that thrilling adventure (HA!)

Like Father, like daughter with the brochures. Especially entertaining considering the kid cannot read!

How cool is the design they created in the Terrazo tile? This is in the power plant part of the dam. I love architecture where attention to detail is evident absolutely everywhere!

It is truly a marvel of engineering.

A view of the new bridge from the Visitor's Center.

We can never resist a trip to the gift shop!

I love being married to someone who makes me laugh!

After the Hoover Dam, we took a slow cruise down the strip, so the girls could see all of the hotels!
Look - it's Elvis! and his twin!

The Little Church of the West.

After the strip, we scouted out a Coldstone Creamery Ice Cream store for some well deserved ice cream!
