Vegas Baby
So this past weekend I drove to Las Vegas to meet a friend of mine for a few days. It was the first time (in a long time) that I was in my car, by myself, for 5 hours without listening to Barney or some other preschool-aged video. I actually got to drive through beautiful mountains, with beautiful weather, the sun roof open at speeds only God and I shared. :)

And boy did I have a blast! I got to see wild horses, stunning sunsets, gorgeous mountains, Hoover Dam and jam out to my 80's tunes as loud as possible! You know you are having a good time when you video tape yourself driving singing to My Sharona...oh yes I did!!

Best of all, it's a good time in Vegas when you come home with more money than you left with. Yes siree, Rapid Roulette and I got along very well. And, Tito and Miquel were great dealers! We stayed at the lovely Paris Las Vegas Resort and Casino and spent one night at a Dualing Piano bar called Napoleon's. The next evening we had tickets to see The Ultimate Variety Show at the Aladdin. The other fine enjoyment was eating at P.F. Chang's and Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville. Did I mention this was all done without wrestling any kiddos?

Eventhough the fun had to end at some point, I was sad to say bye to my girlfriend but it was a true joy to say, "I'll see ya in about two and a half weeks!"

Sounds like you two had WAY too much fun! Just kidding. Congratulations on the big move back to Texas! I know you've been waiting for this for a very long time. That's another prayer answered! Have a great week,
DK

Isn't Jimmy Buffets place the greatest! I wish that I could meet my friends in Vegas, and have such a great time! We all just live so far away from eachother. It's sad really! Glad you had fun!

I don't know how you pulled it off. Sounds like it was fun, though. I can only imagine the scenery~sounds beautiful. Hope you are all refreshed now.
