After almost 8 hours of driving on Friday, we finally made it to our official first stop on our road trip, Circus Circus RV Park. The actual RV Park is pretty much just RV parking lot with hookups but it was all we needed. We were tired and hungry by the time we got there so we set up camp, ate and went to bed with the AC cranked up because it was 100 degrees!
We woke up on Saturday refreshed and ready to see Vegas. So after breakfast we set out for Circus Circus's famous Midway Carnaval Games and the boys really loved it! They won several stuffed animals and then we saw a live show with a clown and skating act for free, awesome!
Finally we met up with our friends Joe & Amanda who live in Vegas. We saw their beautiful home and enjoyed their gracious hospitality including good company, Greek food and air conditioning (it was 110 degrees outside). They even let our boys play with their Star Wars helmets, so cute!
After a fun filled day in Vegas the boys crashed as soon as we got back to our trailer and Dan & I weren't far behind.
We woke up Sunday and wasted no time packing up to take off on the next leg of our journey. We set out around 9:30 headed towards Utah where we would stop for the night at Wagons West RV Park in Fillmore. It was exciting watching the temperature slowly creep down as the farther north we got. We went through the north-west tip of Arizona and into Utah. I swear, the moment we crossed the Utah state line everything became cleaner and crisper in color. The streets, homes and landscape were immaculate. No graffiti or trash anywhere. Dan and I were impressed.
We discovered on of the benefits of driving our home around today as Daniel (our 4year old) asked to go to bathroom 3 separate times on our 5 1/2 hour drive today. Each time we just pulled off the nearest exit and let him go in our own personal bathroom. It was fast, efficient and kinda fun :)
After a relaxed and easygoing drive, we arrived at our campsite and set up camp. The temperature was a perfect breezy 85 degrees. The campsite was totally small and low-key. If this is what our traveling is going to be like for the next year I'll take it, it's pretty sweet!
Tomorrow we are off to Idaho!
