Chadd WINS big in Vegas, NV and Grand Canyon, AZ with the Zutshi family!

Chadd was able to visit both Las Vegas, Nevada and the Grand Canyon in Arizona with 4th grader Aria Zutshi and her family last week!

In Vegas, Chadd enjoyed experiencing the Las Vegas Strip both at sunrise and then at night.  He was fascinated by a carousel made of flowers at the Wynn Hotel. He also thought it was pretty "cool" that there is a hotel named "Aria" in Vegas.  

He was completely  mesmerized by  the performance of Le Rev-The Dream, an acrobatic performance that takes place above and in a 100 million gallon water tank!  

While in Vegas,  Chadd also visited the Hoover Dam where he was able to take a tour both inside the Dam and of the power generators. He loved being able to walk on one of the air vents in the Dam.  And, he was tickled pink when Department of Homeland Security Officers protecting the Dam agreed to pose with him and Aria.

Chadd was also thrilled to be able cross the Grand Canyon off his bucket list during this trip.  The natural beauty of one of the wonders of the world left him speechless.  He enjoyed watching the colors in the canyon change  throughout the day at its various view points in the Grand  Canyon Village and Hermit Road.  He thought of Mr. Barr when he visited the Yavapai Point and Geology Museum at the Canyon.  Here, Chadd learned so much about the different types of rocks at the canyon.
