We spent lots of time seeing the sights on The Strip. Although gambling was not on the agenda, we visited a lot of the casinos to see the themes, statues, flowers, fountains and other sights. Kacy has a new camera and had a great time snapping away.
What's a trip to Las Vegas without seeing Hoover Dam. Although we have been out there several times, Jim is amazed over and over again by this engineering marvel. In the background is the partially finished bridge which will allow the highway to by pass the dam.
We spent an afternoon at Red Rock Canyon. What a great day that was. Not only did we see the beautiful rock formations of the canyon, but we saw wild burros. We were really hoping that we would see some for Deb and Kacy. We were about a mile from the park exit when, there they were.
Kacy really liked Red Rock and says she wants to come back when she has time to hike among the rocks.
Deb and Kacy left for home on Tuesday and while Jim helped Brian with a home improvement project, I tried to catch up from trying to keep up with a 16 year old.
We've spent the week resting and catching up. Today is a cloudy, rainy day in the desert. One of those days where you want to curl up and read. I think I'll do just that.
