Good morning Ladies ! I have done it again missing out on my weekly post and recently I have just managed every two weeks . We are finally seeing spring temperatures during the day with a little freeze some nights. Our carpet of snow is now gone though !
When I left off 2 weeks ago I had told you about a family funeral coming up. Pete, who is my Grandpa through marriage passed away while we were in Vegas . It was hard on my father in law to be there when his Dad passed . But he got back home two days later and made the arrangements. So the funeral mass was celebrated last Saturday morning. It was a lovely send off with a nice homily on his life by the priest. He was a veteran of the armed forces and got a military send off with a 3 gun salute . The bugle sounded and it brought us to tears. We had lunch directly afterwards and then at 1:30pm we we drove 45 minutes west where he was buried in the cemetery his wife had been laid to rest in 18 months previous. It is the end of an era and that generation in our family . May God grant you eternal rest Pete.
We got home at 8pm after a long day travelling , a sad day for us left behind but a happy day for Pete , who is reunited with his loved ones in God’s Kingdom.
On Sunday there was church and then afterwards our youngest had swim lessons. He is doing really well. In the evening we had our friend Brandon , his Fiancé Josette and his daughter Maddi over for dinner and just to see each other after a long spell of busyness for us all. They are busy too with their wedding coming up in early May ! Looking forward to that! The work and school week started again and it was pretty standard . One of our sons celebrated his 9th birthday yesterday ! He is growing up so fast its hard to believe really. Myself and my oldest son are home this weekend . My sweetie went to Fargo with 3 of our kids for a get together with an old college roommate and to hang out with their family and kids. Our son has joined the local trap team and is excited to start today. I will go along and offer my support!
So now on to Las Vegas Part two !! I left off the last post with a look at the hotel and our suite , also a quick peek into the nearby casino. We stayed close by the hotel early in the day on Saturday and then late afternoon went to the downtown area . We first went and parked by the miracle mile shopping and dining mall. It was a really nice and vibrant area and of course I did some window shopping !
Then we went outside to see Vegas by night ! It was a great experience seeing all the casinos lights . We watched the Belagio water dance show where the fountains dance to lights and music . It was amazing. You can see a video here Belagio fountain
We got to see all the amazing buildings .
We completed the evening with dinner in the miracle mile mall . more to come in next post !
