We are back! What a great trip! We got to see enormous amounts of attractions and got to experience
Some great shows and learn some Vegas History.
We stayed pretty busy during out trip because Dave and I like to cram our schedule with many things when
We are out and about.
Dave flew in on Wednesday and we “piddled” Wednesday night around the Strip.
Thursday – David played golf with his 2 new Swedish guy friends (it was a long game) and the highlight of our evening was the David Copperfield show. It was an intimate show, only about 7 or 8 rows of people
And he walked around the rows so we got to see him extremely close up. What an awesome show! If you ever get to see it, DO!
Friday – got off work at noon and we were picked up for horseback riding at 2pm. We rode horses in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Mojave Desert. It was awesome.
Vegas Vegetation is much different from Texas (and much different from what you see on the Strip). Palm Trees actually only grow around town and visitors, the rest is covered
In sand, sage brush, cactis and etc…….After our horseback ride, the Wranglers fed us steak and baked potato with apple pie for dinner. It was great…Roasted marshmallows were
Also on the menu.
Saturday – Hoover Dam Tour. What an amazing place. My knees literally buckled when I looked at the dam from top of the observation deck. 100 people have died building the dam and 1 dog who is also
Buried on site. We saw history of the dam, the hard work it took to build it, final results and took amazing pictures of the dam and lake Meade.
After the Dam tour we went to the Cacti Botanical Garden and Ethel M Chocolate Factory (Mars Candy Co) it was also amazing.
Saturday night we went to a Cabaret show called Crazy Horse. It was definitely an experience but overall a fantastic show!
Sunday morning our flight left at 6am and so we woke up at 4am to get to Macarran Airport b/c it is a disorganized airport with poor logistics. It took us almost 2 hrs to get our E Tickets, check in our luggage and
Go through security. Luckily we had 2 hrs to do that, that we planned for. We slept the entire flight back which was a blessing!
That is all, I just wanted to give you guys an update.
Pictures will be posted separately, on my blog tonight so please come back and check them out.
Also, for all the family I will be making a snapfish as always.
