Fun, Fun Fun!!

Fun, Fun Fun!!

Wednesday, March 13 - Food and Fun (Las Vegas, NV)


Saturday we hung out most of the day at the campground. We were suppose to met Judy, Jesse sister, but she called and canceled. Then the 4 of us decided to go to a movie at 5pm and saw “A Good Day to Die Hard” with Bruce Willis. It was only an okay movie, I liked most of the other Die Hard movies better.

After, we decided to have a late dinner so we went to the Italian Restaurant “Pasta Cucina” in the Casino. Many Casino’s have movie theaters in them and we were at the Texas Station. 

It was a bit fancy with table cloths and very nicely set up. We all had something different and the prices were very reasonable.

My meal



On Sunday we worked; only not very hard. It was a cool morning and got nice in the afternoon. Janet made us dinner again and it was delicious. It was a chicken broccoli mix in a baked crust. Yummy and beautiful! She served a salad to go with it.

IMG_0394After our meal we played Sequence. The girls beat the guys 2 out of 3, but they wanted more so we went for 3 of 5. We beat them with that also, so they wanted to continue. We beat them 4 of 7 and I said “that’s it WE ARE THE WINNERS”.

We had a pudding parfait with strawberries while we watch the Amazing Race with them then went home to the boys.

On Monday Janet, Carolee and I went shopping. We walked around the mall. Then headed to lunch at Chili’s. We continued on to Joanne Fabrics, then Target. It was a fun day and the weather was so nice. Sunny and warm.

The guys also shopped. They said they went to Sportsman's Warehouse, Bass Pro Shop and Camping World. I am sure they didn’t have as much fun as we did.

Then that evening we went downtown to see the Freemont Street Experience.


If you have never been there it certainly is a fun time. It was very busy for a Monday and there were lots of people.

Some street performers.


There were several bands playing so the music was loud and people dancing in the street.


There is a canopy over the street and they project images on it. They also have very large speakers that are very loud!

The first show at 8pm was music from HEART. After the first show the 3 of them got drinks.


Then we walked around some casinos and showed them the fish tank in the Golden Nugget. It is located in the center of the outdoor pool area. The tube you see is a water slide that runs through the tank, it’s really cool.


Then we went to get a .99 cent shrimp cocktail at the Freemont. It was quite tasty for that price.

We saw the 9pm show which was music from Bon Jovi which I enjoyed a lot!


Tuesday we left the park about 9:30am and headed to Boulder City where we had breakfast at the Coffee Cup. It was on

Diner’s Drive-ins and Dives.



Bob got the breakfast that was featured on the show “Pork Chile Verde Omelet”. He said it was very spicy but good and way too much for him to eat. The rest of us got typical breakfasts of bacon, eggs and fried potatoes.

After we continued on down the road to:



In this picture you can see the new by pass bridge they built above the dam.


We were very tired when we got home so we took a nap. On Monday night we DRV’ed the Bachelor for Janet because it was the finale. So they came over around 7pm to watch it. Jesse and I don’t watch that reality show and we both are glad! LOL

Today was a work day. The weather was BEAUTIFUL with all CAPS!!! Light breeze sunny and 80+!

We were busy in the morning but a little quieter in the afternoon. We are home now and relaxing before going over to Bob and Janet’s for dinner. We are grilling!

What am I going to do when they leave us? She has cooked for us each day we have worked! GREAT friends! We really appreciate it and everything has been wonderful!
