Vegas at Night

Las Vegas Pictures

This was the view from our hotel room. We stayed at South Point

A Statue of Liberty made of Jelly Beans!

And An Adventure It Was

I thoroughly enjoyed going to Las Vegas, NV with my best friend. He was there for a work related conference. I went along for the ride. Actually, I went along because he wanted me to.

We've been married just over 20 years and had never taken a trip of that distance. When I say distance, I mean leaving our kids with friend and traveling well over a thousand miles for several days.

Arriving at the Las Vegas Air Port had me feeling very overwhelmed and wondering what possessed me to leave my kids at home so I could have some fun and one on one with my hubby. I was glad Anthony had been to Las Vegas before. He had everything taken care of ahead of time so getting from the Air Port to the Hotel was a smooth transition.

If I wasn't overwhelmed at the Air Port, I definitely was upon arriving at the Hotel. People can explain what a gambling hotel is like but the experience is another thing entirely. O.K. I admit, I don't gamble and am a bit naive. The noise from the slot machines was a bit much for me. I was glad to get settled in our room.

There is a two hour time difference between Louisiana and Nevada so we decided to turn in and get up early for the next days adventures.

The morning of day 2 we quickly went down to "The Strip" so we could decide what show and attractions we wanted experience. After selecting a few and booking a tour of Hoover Dam, we were off and walking "The Strip". I guess here is a good place to post some pictures.

The Adventure Begins

Emergency contact and medical release forms signed, witnessed, and notarized. Home instructions both emailed and left typed for the sitter. Three precooked meals left in the refrigerator. One very trusted friend entrusted with the care of my kids for the next 5 days. What am I thinking leaving my kids to accompany my husband to Las Vegas! The big kids have assured me I should go. The little guy says to bring him back a surprise. I guess that means I go with their blessing. And so I will try. Plane leaves in 10 min.

Seth finds friends every where he goes. It doesn't matter whether he knows their name or if he will ever see them again.

Some friends are furry!

Some are beautiful!

Big Brothers can be crazy friends:)

Some Friends pray for you!

Queens Contest

For weeks Elizabeth has been practicing for the Queens Contest at the Atchafalaya Bit and Bridle Club. Today was the big day. The Contest was not a beauty pageant. Had it been, I would not have allowed her to participate. The Contest was an exhibition of horsemanship.

The Duties of a Queen: Represent and be proud of your club. Always be kind and willing to help others. Wear your crown and banner to every event you could possibly make. Ride in Parades, Ride in grand entries. Help to raise money for next years contest.

Winners will be announced at the first ABBC Horse Show in March. Will she win? I don't know. What I do know is that she did her best. Regardless of the out come, she is my Queen. Whether she wins the contest or not, I pray that she exhibits the traits worthy of a Queen.
