Good morning Ladies !! it is a sunny Sunday morning here in Minnesota , 36f and getting up to 39 today. With daylight savings in the early hours of the morning we lost an hour and I am a bit slow in getting active ! I think evening church will be attended today!
So now on to Las Vegas !! We left on Friday March 4th . We had dinner then drove to a park and ride place close to the airport and dropped off the car. Earlier in the day we brought our dog to a dogsitter through the rover app. She lives 10 minutes away and came highly recommended . We got to the airport at 7pm got checked in through security and met my in-laws by the departure gate. They have the timeshare in Las Vegas, or they can go to any major city in the states basically. It was so nice of them to invite us ! Our flight took off at 9’30 pm and was a pretty smooth trip to Vegas. . We gained 2 hrs heading west , Our flight got in at 11pm local time. We got our cases, and then waited for a shuttle bus to car rental. We got a nice vehicle to fit us all. I didn’t sign on to drive as I came back 2 days earlier than the rest of the family. We then drove and found a restaurant open as the kids were hungry! We ate and then headed to our hotel . We were there around 12. 15 am and were staying on the 9th floor of the Grandview hotel. After getting settled and unpacking a little , getting the kids to bed , we both were going to bed at 1:15am!!!
The kids were awake early next morning , above is the first view we had from our hotel window. you can see the mountains in the background. In this hotel you go into your suite via a shared foyer using a keycard , then there is suite A and suite B . My in-laws were in A and the rest of us in B , except our 8 year old who wanted to stay with them !! We had the 2 suite doors open all during trip so people could easily go from one to the other.
Above are a few random photos from our suite we also had a stackable washer dryer which was nice ! In the photo looking towards the kitchen you can see the open suite door . On our first day there we took things easy . After breakfast we went to the swimming pool and hot tub pool . Then after some of the adults went over to the nearby Southpoint casino , it was a 5 minute walk away. I am not really a gambler but it was nice to walk around and see what people were doing at machines , and also the horse racing section .
I will continue our Vegas adventure next week. We had some sad news on the trip , the patriarch of the family Pete passed away at the age of 93 last Wednesday. He was so nice to me always , and on the weekend before our wedding him and his wife celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary, it was the first event we did as we travelled for our wedding week. His funeral takes place Saturday. He is the last of the Great Grandparents , may he rest in peace.
