We woke up a little late this day, I did not feel that well. My right kidney was killing me. I thought that I may have been passing a kidney stone because that is what it felt like. I pushed it off and continued with our journey because I knew all they would do for me was give me medication that I already had.
The plan was to drive to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, but the road that my husband chose was a “back” road to the North Rim. It was a 20 mile long bumpy gravel road. We made it down it about 5 miles and I could not handle it anymore every bump made my kidney hurt more. We actually stopped in Las Vegas because the vibration of the car even hurt. I decided to look on TripAdvisor for a hotel and booked one at the Mirage. We had to wait 3 hours to check in, so we decided to go to the Hoover Dam.
This is one of the most coolest things to go see, I highly recommend it. Especially if you have young children. We went to the 3 parking lot because we wanted to have the whole view and as you can tell we did. There is also a little gift shop up there, we went and got magnets and decided that we were going to start a tradition of getting a magnet from every state we visit.
We headed back to the hotel to check in and I ended up taking a nap because my body was just overloaded. We decided to go out for dinner, I don’t remember the name of the restaurant (Sorry) It was on a side road. We sat down at our table and the first thing the waitress does is card everyone including my 13 year old son. I asked the waitress how old she thought I was and she said “Honestly, he looks like your husbands brother more than like your kid.” She was a great waitress.
After dinner we just walked around and people watched. My son tells me “Mom, this is better than fair.” I ask why and he says “All the weird people it’s better than the State Fair.” I love that my son has a sense of humor. We get to the hotel and relax and get to bed early.
