Vegas Vacation!

My sister came to town last Saturday, I picked her up and we went to walmart to load up on food and drinks to have at the pool. We made Olive garden salad and dressing, gazpacho soup (yummy!) and black bean burgers the first night!

Sunday found us over at Sunset station to play bingo, I won 50.00 and got crowned Queen of bingo, I had to pick a number (B10) and if it got called I would win a 5.00 voucher for my next bingo trip, it showed up only one time. But I got to wear a tiara! What girl does not love to wear a tiara!

After that is was shopping for shorts and sandals, antique mall where I found a cool gecko for the backyard wall. Sunday night the hubby took us to our favorite mexican restaurant for dinner, Lindo Michoacan on Desert Inn and Eastern.

Monday, time for the kids to get here! We pick them up and spend the day in the pool drinking margaritas, dinner was our homemade french bread pizza! Yum!

Tuesday, we hit the outlet mall and bass pro shop, back home we hooked up with hubby and headed to The Linq to ride the high roller ferris wheel. We were all a bit nervous, but our motto got us through,  "get busy living". From there we played in the Polaroid place where they take your photos and make cool prints from them. Stopped for Ice Cream at Ghiradelli then home for one last dip in the pool in the dark.
Wednesday everyone flew home. What a fun time we had!
I wish we could have more Vegas Vacations!
The ferris wheel from the ground!
On Tuesdays locals can buy tickets for half off normally 20, Tuesdays 10.

On top of the world, 550 feet above Las Vegas!

The pods can hold 40, but we had 9 in ours and that was just fine for me!

When you are up there, the people and cars are so tiny!


Love these two! Fun!

Family holidays are the best. Especially if you don't see them that often.
