For Memorial weekend we went on a family trip to the Grand Canyon. It was amazing!! Randy and Winnie (Grandpa & Grandma) left early Friday morning. Dewey, I and the boys left as soon as Luke got out of school. (Both boys last day of school). Our first stop was the Hoover Dam.
It is a HUGE structure, if your an architecture nerd like me you would love it.
A little alarming to see how low the water is. All the white that you can see on the rocks is where there used to be water. Lake Meed is way way to low.
For security reasons a new bridge was built to drive over. But you can still drive over the Hoover dam if you go through a security check first. We drove over then parked and walked back over it for the best view.
We stayed in Williams AZ. A darling little western town. We stayed at the Grand Canyon Train Hotel which was a block from downtown. So it was easy to walk everywhere. To the boys delight walking involved going past a lot of trains and tracks.
Because it was Memorial Weekend there was a Parade on Saturday. We spent the morning walking around town and then watching the parade.
It was about this time that Luke started to not feel good. Hey it wouldn't be a Warner vacation if it was all smooth sailing :)
