Lake Mead #LasVegasTrip

Our flight to Las Vegas was early so it was around noon time when we arrived there.  We  had 3 hours to spare before the check in at the hotel so we decided to  explore outside the city.  One of the two places we visited  was the Lake Mead.  We were actually heading to Hoover Dam  but since Lake Mead was on the way there, we  decided to  drop by at the over look and  enjoyed the scenery for a little bit.  
Here are some of the photos on our way to Lake Mead.  Several paved roads wind through the dramatic desert scenery of Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Towering stark mountains, plateaus, desert basins of cacti and creosote bush, and vertical-walled canyons are some of the sights that we enjoyed seeing. 
Lake Mead is in the Historic Boulder City.  You can see the BC writing on the rocky mountain.  Boulder City is a city in Clark County, Nevada. It is approximately 26 miles southeast of Las Vegas.  Did you know that Boulder City  is one of only two cities in Nevada that prohibits gambling?  It's an interesting fact  and also   surprising considering what Nevada is known for.
With lakes Mead and Mohave as the  main focus, Lake Mead National Recreation Area visitors can  enjoy a variety of water recreation activities in a rugged and picturesque setting. There are shaded picnic areas with tables, water, fire grills and restrooms are located throughout the area. 
There are short desert hikes that lead to places that you won't see from a boat or car.  We didn't do any of these activities because it was so hot and we only went there to pass some time and just want to see the beautiful place we saw when we were  flying over it.
 There are so many things that you can do at America's most diverse  recreation area.  You can ride a boat, go for a hike, do some cycling with your friends, or  do some camp and fishing.

I love the   landscapes and the the  blue water at this year-round playground.    The  spreads across  of mountains, canyons, valleys and two vast lakes.   You can see the Hoover Dam from the waters of Lake Mead or Lake Mohave, or find solitude in one of the park's nine wilderness areas.

Lakes Mead and Mohave offer some of the country's best sport fishing. Boating and water skiing are favorite activities on the broad expanses of open water, along with kayaking and canoeing.

Las Vegas and Lake Mead reminds me of the movie my husband and I watched, the  "Kill Me Again" with Val Kilmer, Joanne Whalley, and Pat Mulligan .    The movie is  partially filmed in Las Vegas with highlights from the Las Vegas Hilton. Some additional footage featured Reno, several desert scenes, and glimpses of Overton and Winnemucca.  It's exciting when you are watching a movie and you recognize the place and you say "I've been there!"
Going there in the middle of the day was not as relaxing as I thought it would because it was so hot that day that when you get out of the car, you are like inside an oven.  Nevertheless, we managed to looked around and take some photos before we went to Hoover Dam.

I would love to go back there someday, probably in the Fall season when it is not too hot and we could actually do outdoor activities without suffering from too much heat.  We had such a fun time though although it was hot, the view is stunning and the weather makes you want to  swim in the water.

4 Valuable Ways to Help Your Children Succeed in Life

Once you become a parent, the most important thing for you would be your children. Their wellness and safety will always be your top priority as they are your greatest blessing. You will do anything and everything just to ensure their well-being and happiness.

As a parent, it is important to note that your children need you all the time, especially in their growing years. You have to provide them your full attention and guidance in order to help them grow as good people. It is no surprise that parents would do everything just to keep their children protected as well as secure their future. So, here are some helpful ways on how to help your children succeed in life:

Believe in their abilities
Children won’t be able to achieve their goals in life if there won’t be people believing in them, especially their parents. With this, you have to make it a point to show them that you truly believe in their potential. This will give them confidence and it will be easier for them to reach for their dreams because their parents are there to support them all the way no matter what happens.
Provide them proper education
One of the most crucial things that you can give to your children for them to become successful in life is education. You need to invest on this matter, for this will be the greatest thing you can provide them. Proper education goes a long way, so be sure to choose the best academy for them, like India International School or any world-renowned school you might think that will help them get high-quality education. More so, giving your children proper education is their gateway to making all their dreams come true. So, do your best to provide them this one.

Be their role model
Everything your children knows or does start with you. From the moment they were born, you are the first person they look up to and this is the reason why you need to be a good role model to them. As a parent, do what is right all the time because your children have high expectations from you. They always tend to imitate what you say and do, so be careful of all your words and actions. Through the eyes of your children, you are a hero. Never do something you don’t want them to do, because this will be a big problem in the long run.
Let them pursue their dreams
Encourage your children to pursue their dreams. If they want to become a doctor, lawyer, teacher, or other profession, you need to motivate them. Your children need you to inspire them to reach for their goals in life. And most of them are doing their best for their parents, so it is great that you are always there. Whatever it is they want to become in the future, let them be and just support them.

Being a parent is never an easy task. There will be plenty of struggles along the way, but it is certainly worth every bit of it. These things mentioned above are just some of the effective ways to help your children succeed in life. Be the best parents for your children and you will be proud of them.

It's been..
