We made an extended vacation out of the Lake Powell trip by first driving to Las Vegas and spending the night in a hotel. We went to church the next day and then did a tour of Hoover Dam. It had been a long time since I'd been and I'm pretty sure the kids have never seen it, so I thought it would be good for them. Plus, the Transformers movie immortalized the dam by housing Megatron beneath the concrete.
We then went to a park to run the RC boats but it was so stinking hot. The kids cooled off at a water park and then it was back to the hotel for pizza and bed.
We left Monday morning after continental breakfast. The drive was pretty beastly, much longer than anticipated. The kids had devoured our week's worth of food rations and we had to stop for more. Fortunately, Heidi was impressed by the Capitol Reef national park.
The rest of the trip can be described through this video and my shutterfly link.
