Home Sweet Home


It was a fantastic vacation. The girls sat in the back of the car for 6 hours without a peep. Thank God for portable DVD players!! The drive was long but fun...we took tons of pictures of the Hoover Damn and Lake Mead. Once in Vegas, we stayed away from the casinos as much as possible. I could not believe the amount of smoke! Unfortunatley you have to walk thru a casino before going anywhere...even the restaurants... so I tried to teach the girls how to hold their breath.. but I dont think I succeeded. Oh well... I guess 2 days a year is not too bad to be around that much smoke.




The NFR was exciting, but a little hectic. First we had to take a taxi to the Thomas and Mack center....no car seats? good grief, the girls got buckled in with mom and dad, and we all held on for dear life. Our driver was a little impatient with all the traffic... what do you expect when over 100,000 people are expected to be there? ... Once there... it was packed. I was nervous having such young girls around all the drunk cowboys...but everything turned out fine.





We spent one whole day just cruising the strip and checking out all the major hotels...Excalibur was great for kids...

I have a full day of laundry and cleaning to catch up on... this weekend will be busy..but should include alot of excersize!

Have a Blessed Day!
