Weekdays in Vegas
Three days away from my wireless connection was difficult. I'm sorry, but I like to be plugged in.
Despite the lack of internet access, I have to say we had a great time in Las Vegas. We drove up to Mt. Charleston (who knew there was skiing 45 minutes from downtown?), visited Red Rock Canyon, crossed back and forth between Arizona and Nevada atop Hoover Dam, and lounged in and around the Luxor pools. Not your typical Vegas vacation, although we did venture out on the Strip a bit.
I think my son had the most fun visiting Hoover Dam, but not for the reasons you might think.
"Why'd you bring us on this dam vacation?" *giggle*snort* from the back seat.
"We thought you'd have a dam good time." *belly laugh*
"There's too many dam people here." *snarf*giggle*
"Well stop your dam complaining!" *choking laughter*
"Can I get a dam souvenier?" He's laughing so hard he can't breathe by now.
"Yes, but you realize you'll have to stop all this dam cursing once we leave the dam?"
I missed my Write a Review Wednesday. Did I mention I didn't have internet access? But I still did push ups on the hotel floor, and I even started doing sit ups during the rest periods! Of course, I ate so much that I didn't lose weight, even with all that exercise. On the bright side, I didn't gain any either.
Much as we liked the Luxor, the kids and I decided we don't want to stay there ever again. Is it wrong to reject a hotel that charges $14.95/day for internet access over an Ethernet wire? I think not.
