Back from Trip #1

Last night, we got back from trip #1 (of three!) for the summer. I drove Alex to Oklahoma where she could stay with grandparents and attend a family reunion. It was our first reunion (and I hated to miss it) and we had about 120 in attendance!!! Alex had fun and made a great friend of one of her distant cousins. (Above is the amazing view from our room.)

After dropping Alex off, I hopped on a plane for Las Vegas to meet up with my husband. One of my husband's best friends from college (and he lives nearby so we see him pretty often) was getting married for the first time. We had 4 days in Vegas - our first trip without Alex (except for one overnight stay) since she was born. We had so much fun!

Part of the time, I braved Vegas on my own and went to the Titanic exhibit at Luxor, watched the fountains at Bellagio, went to the Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay (where we stayed) and went to an art exhibit of Warhol, Lichtenstein and Friends at Bellagio. (photo: Hoover Dam in lower left.)

On the plane ride back, I made sure I set on the right side and I got to see both Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon! It was a great way to end a wonderful trip.

I'd love to take the boys to see the Grand Canyon. It's so awesome in person. Sounds like you saw some great sites.

Looks like a great time. I'm glad you got some couple time with your hubby. That's so important.
What was that big triangular building in your OK picture? It looks a lot like the Louvre.

Oh, to see the Grand Canyon from a plane! What a sight!
