Dress of the week March 26th !

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
