I'm back

Boy oh boy.... I don't think majorly exhausted can really describe how I feel today. The house is empty of visitors and now comes the recovery effort. Except I have a focus group to attend to today and on Friday we leave for Branson with the kids. Ok, I';m tired again already.

I'm going to do my trip in parts in hopes to try to describe all the fun we had.

Part I Thursday

We left early in the morning, kissed all the kids that were still all sleeping. We drove to the airport in Tulsa and got our flight. It was a wonderful, quiet flight and we even slept. Arriving in Vegas was awesome! The view is fantastic and it was early morning so it was really a great time to arrive. We got our shuttle immediately and got dropped to the hotel. The hotel is everything everyone described, a grand, opulent, humongous thing. Really impressive what they did to make it seem like Venice. We checked in and we even paid a little extra for a strip view. We were on the 29th floor and the view was just the best, we could see the Winn, Treasure Island, The Mirage and a few others too.

We went downstairs to find the Sports Book which Pat wanted to check out and then went looking for the famous canals. It is really beautiful and so fun to walk around even if I could only gawk at the stores like Gucci, Jimmy Choo and others like it. We ate at a Mexican restaurant that was really good and sat "outside" by the canal. I think we also walked a bit around the casino and outside. We found our way to the Monorail and went to the MGM to get our tickets for the show KA of Cirque Du Soleil. We then investigated New York, New York, which is amazing.

We had reservations that night at Zeffirino's which is old country italian. It was wonderful. We had a bottle of wine and the food was fantastic. The waiter was awesome. We had a great time. I'm going to post pictures.

Later Part II - Friday, the day of reconoissance, skydiving.....
