Dress of the week April 10th !

Good  morning  Ladies!  I am  back  again after  another  2  weeks  since  I  posted !   Last  weekend  was  one   where I was   busy and  did not  get  around to  writing . It looks  like  spring  is  here ,   but I am  guarded  with that  word “looks”   as  you  can  never  tell  when   your  next  snowfall  will  come in Minnesota.   We  did  have a  few  skiffs  of  snow  during the  week   but  they  went  away  quick. this  morning it is   just  above  freezing  at   35F.    Our  grass is   slowly turning to a   shade of  green  from   brown, yay!

Waiting for these beauties to show up !!

 

 When I left off   2  weeks  ago   I had  said I  was  going on Saturday  with my son to  his  new  sport  trap shooting. They  shoot what is  called  clay pigeons ,  little  discs  not  the  birds  thankfully !   He  has  struggled  in  other  sports  but is  really enjoying this one. I want the  best  for  him. The mid  week was    busy  with   work   and   school  for us .  On last  weekend , Saturday we  had   visitors in  our old next  door   neighbors  Paul  , Patricia  and  their  4  kids, they are  busy having the  same  number  kids as  us  but  their  youngest is  nearly  2  , so still in  the  busy stage.  it  was  nice  to see them again in a relaxed  get together  at our  house.  They  liked our house so much  that they  are  now  looking  to  move  close to us if  the  right house  comes up!    On Sunday we  went to  church  and  they  had  a nice pancake  breakfast  afterwards, we  look  forward to it!  Our youngest  had  swim  lessons in the afternoon. Monday morning  came  fast  and  another  week !    There  was  not  anything  out of  the  ordinary  that  happened during the  week. On  Friday night we invited our  friends Brian and Crystal over along with their  kids  for  game  night , we  had a lot of fun,   with the game  spoons  being the  best , you have to be  fast  ! On Saturday(yesterday )  we  started  painting in our  daughters  new  bedroom !!   We  got one coat on the  ceiling  and  are  going to apply  a second one.   We  did  not  get too  much paint time in  as  we  we were also entertaining  yesterday afternoon  /evening! ( Seems  we  are  becoming  quite the  hosts!)   Chris, Jen  and  their  kids  came and  also  Eric , Sarah  and  their  daughter  visited.  We  had  not  seen them  since  early 2020 , after we  were all robbed of  friend time  for  the  past  2  years , but  everyone is  getting  back to normalcy Thank God ! We  chatted , had  some good  food ,  and  for  the adults not  driving  home a  glass of  wine or  beers for the  guys!  We  also did  some  games , beanbags (cornhole)   and other  board  games, the  kids also got out on the  trampoline  as  the weather  was  nice!   They left  around 9pm  after a  lovely time together! 

 

Now you are up to  date, I will finish our Las Vegas  trip review !  On the Sunday morning  we  were  there I woke  before  everyone and  went on a early morning  walk. It was  pretty quiet on Las Vegas Boulevard . 

It  was  a  really  nice  day !   I got  back  to the  hotel  and  got  ready for  Church.   Went to a   Lebanese  Catholic  Church nearby, it  was  slightly  different  but  a  lovely   experience.

After  some  food  and   relaxation  we    took on the  90 minute  journey  south to  Bullhead  city Arizona  to meet  friends  from Minnesota  who were  nearby. They  were bringing  their  son to  Arizona  for  a  college tour   and  we  arranged to    both  drive    and  meet  in the  middle !   We  had  lunch  and   chatted   , then went to Scooters   fun park   where  the  kids did activities  from  batting  cages to go carts    and  mini golf ! I  played the  mini golf  too actually !   I was  able  to  take this  photo below of the  beautiful sunset  before we left to  return to Vegas.

  We  got  back to the  hotel late ,  and  were  ready for  sleep!  On Monday  we  went to  the  strip  area  and    Mandalay Bay.    We  walked  around  the  grounds   and  some of the  stores inside , then  we  went to  the Irish restaurant I had  been  wanting to go to !! The  food  was  very good , I also got to meet the Irish Bartender !

  We  came  back to the  hotel  and  relaxed in the pool  and  hot tub   for the  evening.   The  next and last  day we  went to  Krispy Creme for some  guilty pleasures , donuts !! We  used to have one  here  but it  closed a  number of  years  ago.   You can  watch the  doughnut  making in progress  but  we  just  missed that  part, next  time !  I was  able to capture the  snow capped  mountains in the  distance from Krispy Kreme, just in case I was  missing the snow  from  home!

It  was  then time  to go  back to the hotel  and  do a  clean up    and  then  eventually  go to the airport. Of course there was some more window shopping to do!

That was  our  trip  , I would  definitely go back again in March to escape winter  ! 

I started this post in the early morning and it is now  early  evening. We went to Palm Sunday Mass  this  morning it was a lovely poignant  reading of the passion and  Christ’s  ultimate death on the cross  for us.
