Weekly Update

Hubby and I got back from Las Vegas yesterday where we had the most FABULOUS time! Our main reason for going was to attend a wedding which was held on Friday evening at Caesar's Palace in their Juno Garden. It was a beautiful ceremony, the bride gorgeous, the groom handsome and plenty of friends and family to share in the occasion. A reception followed right after so there was plenty of chatter, laughter, pictures, dancing, hor-dourves and champagne. LOL!
We strolled up and down the strip, visited a few casinos and even did a little shopping. My husband surprised me with tickets to see Donny & Marie on Saturday night and the show was AWESOME! "I'm a little bit Rock-n-Roll!!" I sang, clapped, danced, and screamed...hehehe. Ohhh, that Donny still has it. He actually brought me to tears when he sang Puppy Love.

As if that wasn't enough we decided as a family to seek out another show and chose Le Reve, playing at Wynn Las Vegas. There really aren't enough words to describe this show. It had aerial acrobat, dancing, and stunts that were out of this world and most of it in water.

My funniest experience was going to Dick's Last Resort with my daughter. We walked up to the bar and the bartender threw napkins at us. They wanted to see IDs before serving drinks. I said but I'm obviously old enough to drink and he said EVERYONE had to show an ID and the folks at the bar are yelling, ID! ID! ID! So I hand over my ID, he looks it over and then proceeds to yell out my age to everyone in the restaurant. It was hilarious!!!!! (For those of you not familiar with Dicks, they are known for their intentional employment of an obnoxious staff. I knew the risk walking in there.)

Back to reality...sigh!

Sounds like a great time!

BTW, there is a Dick's on the Riverwalk in San Antonio. I haven't been in it yet, but I did know about how it is. Well, if you walked by their place on the Riverwalk, they would say something to you.
