Last Friday night our friends Carolee and Chick came over for dinner. We rearranged the furniture to make it easier to eat and play games after. We sat in front of the big picture window to look out at the lights of Las Vegas.
Bob and Janet arrived last Sunday. We were still at work when they arrived. We greeted them with hugs and Jesse and Bob unhooked the car while Janet and I got them checked in. Needless to say we were not busy at work.
They continued on to their site to get set-up while Jesse and I finished our shift.
We were serving dinner for them so we left the furniture in the new position. We grilled some brats and chicken and I had made some potato salad, baked beans and a salad of tomatoes and cucumbers.
We sat and visited for awhile before they went back to their home and Jesse and I just watched TV.
On Monday Janet and I met Carolee and her daughter Crystal and went shipping. Not sure what the guys did.
Tuesday Bob and Janet went to the strip to meet their daughter who was here for a wedding. They walked around and saw most of the big Casinos on the strip.
Jesse and I worked on Wednesday and Janet made dinner for us. It was delicious with fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn and wonderful dinner rolls.
We played Phase 10 and Bob won!
For dessert Janet made a homemade cherry pie and ice cream….yummy!
On Thursday we were out about 10am and headed to the downtown area of Las Vegas.
Our 1st stop was
It moved fast and in a few minutes we were in the building.
Our next stop was the Stratosphere. Jesse bought the tickets because he got us all in at the senior rate and up in the elevator we went to the 108th floor. Which is the indoor observation area. You can walk around the top 360 degrees and look out to see all of Vegas. In the far distance of this picture the road you see is where the Shooting park is located and where we are staying.
Las Vegas Blvd.
Then we walked around Freemont Street downtown.
By this time we were hungry so we ate at a restaurant in the 4 Queens. Jesse and I has eaten there before and the food was reasonably priced and tasted good.
After walking around we came back home. Fed and walked the boys and relaxed for a couple hours then headed back out to play the 7pm round of BINGO. Sorry to say we didn’t win but had fun.
After we went to the food court to visit Dairy Queen.
Today we headed out about 10am in the rain. The guys dropped Janet and I off at a casino and they went to Harbor Freight. They met us back at the Casino when they finished shopping and we went to the buffet for food. Bob and Janet treated thanks guys!
Then we made a trip to Camping World where we all found something we couldn’t do without.
We took the long way back to the park showing them around some of the Las Vegas area.
We are having fun!
