The weekend of March 16 -19 we went to LasVegas and met Grandma Hart while she was staying with Shirl and El Dora in their time share there. We were able to get a room in the same place. It was so great to be there with family without a 12 hour drive. I love the colors on the flowers on the table. Now I just need to take pictures that are not fuzzy. It was a great room.
Sunday we went to the buffet at Caesar's palace. We spent the rest of the day visiting with family. El Dora cooking us a wonderful dinner with veggies and rice. Yum!
Monday we went to the Venetian. What an incredible place. That is where the indoor pictures were taken. This is the group of us. We walked along the Grand Canal, had lunch at an Italian place along with gelato, saw amazing photos and the Lik gallery. I also got to pick out an early Anniversary/Mother's day necklace.
Watching this statue was fun and interesting. It is a man all dressed in white with gloves on. It you stand there, you will see him move. When Grandma got up close, he waved, slightly, at her to show he was a real person. I'm not sure anyone but us saw him move. He was still very much in character. It ws fun to watch.
We had to be out of our room by 10 am Tuesday. There was a little hiccup in the door as we were loading our stuff in the Jeep. The Security guy just happened to be driving by as we needed him and got us back in so we were still out on time. After we said goodbye to the family. Jeff and I drove out to the other side of town to the Red Rocks Canyon. It is a BLM site. It was a perfect day, not too hot and a cool breeze. It is a very rocky place. We went on a 4wheel drive trail for a ways and then headed home. It was 4 hours door to door. It sure beats 12 hours.
