Proof of the heat!!!
After our reunion, we headed off on our way back to Idaho. Since it's a LONG ways, we made some stops. Funnily enough, going from the Grand Canyon to Hoover Dam (which was our next planned stop) took a LONG LONG time! I think we stopped every 20 minutes! Sheesh! Someone had to go to the bathroom; someone needed a drink; someone needed to go to the bathroom again; we needed gas; everyone was hungry...Good night! Regardless, we did finally make it to the Hoover Dam. We went over the suspension bridge without even knowing it! :( We didn't take a Dam tour as it was $35 a person, and we didn't even go into the Visitors' Center as it was $8 a person just to go inside! So, we had a couple of Dam Dogs, got some Dam postcards from the Dam Souvenir store, took some Dam pictures and enjoyed the HEAT (I was going to make another Dam joke about the heat, but it was too appropriate, since it was 113 degrees, so I decided not to. The metal on the handrails in the SHADE was too hot to touch there! Wow!!).
Regardless of the intense heat and the absolute exhaustion of everyone involved, it was a nice stopover! Glad we were there for the whole 1/2 hour we spent looking around. That was about all we could take. Whew.

I love to read and do reviews for Compass Book Ratings!
by Dan Brown
I like that the plot twists and turns a lot...and it makes you think. However, I don't appreciate Dan Brown's endings in his books. I find the endings incongruent with the rest of his stories--why make it a romance for the last chapter...
I loved this book. I'm a sucker for fairy tales/fantasy. This was so well written! I can't wait to read all the rest of her books!
I'm reading this one again. I liked it the first time I read it. I'm still liking it for the second time around. I like all of Shannon Hales' books. **Still lots of fun the second time around! I do like this book for a comfortable...
