the vacation.

I just got back from a five hour overnight flight.
And I'm so tired.
But being the hardcore blogger I am, I'm going to make a post about my vacation before I go get some Advil.
Just kidding. I'm not that weird.
I already had Tylenol, and I'm not going to overdose because that would mess up my kidneys and I want to have two of them when I die.

Our plane landed in Las Vegas on Friday. At three in the morning.
And the term "Vegas never sleeps" is so true.
It's ridiculous how much energy people have.
There were hundreds of people on the streets, and the music was SO LOUD.
But the buildings were really amazing.
The hotel we stayed in was shaped like a giant pyramid.

The sides of all the hotel rooms were at a slant with a big wall-to-wall window.
If you look closely at the picture, you can see the all the individual ones.
Together, it makes the big pyramid shape.
And in the center, there's a big casino.
Typical Las Vegas.

On Friday afternoon, we went to see the Hoover Dam. Which was essentially a huge wall of cement.

We also took a look at all the generators below. 
Which pretty much provides all the energy Vegas needs to function. 

Finally, we went to Grand Canyon.
Which was a five hour drive through the desert.
How fun.

But it was breathtaking.
It was like I was living in a postcard. It was just miles and miles of these amazing structures of rock.

After a few hours, we packed up and went home.
And here I am.

Have a great Easter! 
Eat lots of junk food.

Woah! The Grand Canyon looks more real than it does in a movie or something. Totally want to visit there. Not so much Vegas though, I'm not a partier.

Jodie-Ann: If all else fails, you can always look at some videos on Youtube. =]

Ishashime: Since when did mountain goats scale the hoover dam?
LOL I would want to see that.
And you should go to Vegas. It's very... lively.

Blonde One: I would go to Vegas to see the buildings (which are amazing) but not so much for the parties.
I'm not the party type either.
