Savannah's Birthday & Spring Break 2008

What a busy week + a few days!!

Friday 3/21 - Savannah's 12th birthday. We both worked all day until 6pm, at 6:01pm, she had a sleepover with 6 girls (Kacie, Adrienne, Chelsea, Kiley, Dani, Jessica). Goodness they were crazy and loud.

Saturday 3/22 - Girls still here, had a Cosmic Bowling party where 3 more girls showed up who could not spend the night. Ran home, cleaned house, finished packing, and left to spend the night in Portland.

Sunday 3/23 - (Easter) Got up to catch our flight to Las Vegas, the kids first flight. Savannah was her usual anxious self, Dominick excited until we take off and his ear hurt (previous surgeries seem to have made it hard for him to unplug them). Arrive in Las Vegas, take the shuttle to the rental car center (oh my, I have never seen such a huge building just for rental cars, and busy it was), drive to the hotel, check in. Then drive to Mike/Karen/Ana/Sam's for Easter dinner. Great food and company!!

Monday 4/24 - Walked around the strip all day. Saw the MGM, NY NY, M&M, Luxor, Excalibur, ESPN Zone. Then for dinner we went to the Excalibur (where we stayed) and saw the dinner show (Tournament of Kings). We got great seats (front row, Russia area) or so we thought they were great until the horses went flying by and dirt also went flying, right at us. They do a jousting match against the other areas, and the Dragon. It was awesome. The only draw back was eating dinner with NO silverware. Not my cup of tea but the kids and Aaron enjoyed it.

Tuesday 3/25 - We went to the Red Rock Canyon and went on a 1 1/2 hour horse back ride. It was beautiful, wonderful, great, THE BEST! Everyone loved it!!

My favorite picture of the trip so far!

Then we went down to Fremont street to see the "old" town.It had an amazing over head light show. Though pictures did not turn out well, it was still a memory I will cherish forever.

Wednesday 3/26 - We went to Mandalay Bay and saw Shark Reef, then sat by the pool. Great relaxing day.

Stay turned for part II
