Here’s another post of the Hoover Dam. This is the kind of quirky little experience that is my favorite. Being able to walk across a bridge and stand on the Nevada/Arizona state line 🤓. How fun is that?! • And of course we had to get ALL the posed family pictures with the different state signs . • The Mike O’Callaghan/Pat Tillman Bridge should definitely be a part of your trip to the if you go. You get the fun little state line experience, but also awesome views of the Dam, the Colorado River, and the mountains. Such a great stop! •

One last post from our time in St. Louis. The was one of the best zoos we have ever been too! And the best part was that it was FREE! • The kids saw a polar bear, a grizzly bear, penguins, a hippo and many more amazing animals. • St. Louis is such a family friendly city with so much to see and do for free! So glad we made the last minute decision to add it to this leg of the trip. •

25 of 50 states! After 9 months of #fulltimervlife, we have been to half of the United States! • We only count the states that we have visited since we set off on our adventure this past August; and only those that we have at least spent 1 night in.• We have tentative plans to visit the rest, but it will still take us a little while. Which, hey, I don’t mind …this and thing are right up my alley. •
