Traveling day and the next day

What a great day today!

Yesterday was just so awful with my son screaming, the airport doing that, and the hotel putting us in a one bed room with a crappy view in the oldest un-updated part of the hotel. My son had to make a makeshift bed out of the room chairs because he says he is too old to sleep in the same bed with his mom.

We had the worst view too! And the windows were really dirty but it has been raining off and on from what I heard so I won’t hold that against the hotel.

The hallway reminded me of The Shining (with Jack Nicholson). Creepy! And we had a corner room where we could hear everyone walking by.

The front desk guy was so nice though! He got me 2 free drinks, said he would change our room today (it came through at 5pm), and he and I chatted for like an hour.

I put $15 in a slot machine. I lost $12 and then won $10 so I quit right then ending up with only a $2 loss. I’m not crazy! I had 2 beers free (thanks Joey) and paid for one. I was tipsy and finally went back to the room at 5am which is 7am back home. I slept until 10 and then packed up, got my son up, and we took off.

We drove to Hoover Dam and parked on the top floor of the garage there. We took the stairs down, walked one end to the other of the dam (it’s NOT as big as I thought it would be) and then walked back on the other side. Then we drove back to Vegas.

We went by the Fashion Mall in Vegas and my son saw a Hot Topic so we went in. They had hoodies on sale “buy one, get one for $5” so he grabbed 2. We were looking for a snack because we were meeting Hunida for dinner but couldn’t find anything until we saw a Godiva store. I ended up getting macaroons dipped in multiple kinds of chocolate and he got chocolate pops dipped in sprinkles.

We had a great time with Hunida and her boyfriend at dinner and after too! I told her we should do a post together of that so sorry guys, that will be in a different post. We are supposed to get together Tuesday to ride the hotel’s roller coaster before we have to go to the airport.

Thanks to her boyfriend for taking that one! When we got back to the hotel, we got the new room cards and it is so much better!

Today was a great day! I hope y’all had a good day too. Chat later!

Yep. That’s where we are. We are also about to eat breakfast and head back. My hotel room neighbors woke me up at 6am so I already got my exercise this morning.

Yesterday I did great even including my garlic bread and 4 beers!

The boys fed stingrays, ate well at the Aquarium, had fun on all the rides, and running through the water fountain. I had fun too and relaxed some. This was a great overnight trip (not including the couple with a baby next door to us).

This last ones were my view on my walk this morning. So pretty and quiet here on the water early! I should be glad they woke me up so I could go see that. The hotel also gave us a free breakfast because of it.
