I'm Baccckkkk!!

Well, after a week away from my blog I am ready to get back in the game!! I did read some blogs last week but as I only had my tablet with me, I did not comment very often. Have you tried typing on that small screen??

Marvin and I enjoyed a week visiting some old friends in Las Vegas. We were all young marrieds and young parents together when the husbands worked in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. We last saw Gary and Melinda nine years ago but we just picked right up and had a great time. True Friends are like that aren't they?

We arrived in HOT Las Vegas last Saturday and enjoyed a yummy meal that Melinda made in the Crock Pot. Melinda shared that it is so hot in Vegas that she often uses her crock pot in the summer to avoid heating up the kitchen. I will have to share her recipe here one day soon. Sunday we attended Southern Hills Baptist Church of Las Vegas. The pastor's wife is one of Amelia's high school friends. We sure enjoyed seeing her and meeting her sweet family. We treated them to lunch at In and Out Burger.

Monday we were off to Hoover Dam, Tuesday's travels took us to the south rim of the Grand Canyon, Wednesday found us at Lake Powell then back to our home base on Thursday. We saw a show at the Palazzo Theater Thursday evening then we spent Friday visiting Red Rock Conservation area in Las Vegas. We spent the afternoon touring some of the fancy casinos...Bellagio and Ceasar's Palace.

So this weeks blogs will feature some of my many photos!! See you Monday!

Truly, we could have stayed two weeks and we still would not have seen everything we wanted too Ladies. So thankful for the Opportunity to visit the beautiful west.

I'm behind on blogging, too. Glad you had a good trip and I'll look forward to seeing your photos. We're heading out that way this fall and can't wait. It's a long drive for us, but there is so much to see along the way and I love the scenery!
