Our friend Chris came from Seattle for a visit. He has never been to Las Vegas, so we showed him a few places. The first stop was Lake Mead. Saturday, during the day, was beautiful and we had a chance to do a little driving around. By late afternoon the weather was turning cold and windy. By the time we made it down to the strip that night it was raining, but it actually was to our advantage because we were able to drive down the length of the strip without much traffic!
Boulder City Brewing Company--great place for beer!
The conservatory at the Bellagio. It's the "year of the rat", so Chris and I posed in front of the flower rat. We had fun walking around the casino and the "boys" enjoyed looking at all the girls trying to get into the nightclub. Shelly enjoyed looking at all the jewlery at Tiffany's figuring out what she wants for her birthday (yeah right, how 'bout a job first?!)

Maybe we will have to change the name of this blog so I (Alan) can jump in from time to time. I have to write something here about our friend Eddie. He looks nothing like an old rocker/country/blues guitar picker, but that is what he is. He has been a professional musician for most of his life and has played with some of the biggest names ever, including Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock. He plugged in his guitar when we came back after dinner and he played everything from the Beatles to Dave Brubeck and made it look easy. Eddie doesn't like to brag and he doesn't have to; he can play the guitar with anyone!

A good time was had by all! We went out to Famous Dave's with our friends, Eddie and Ginger. This was my first trip to the famous BBQ place and while I'm not usually a big fan of chain restaurants this one will be worth going back too!

Although it is MUCH calmer now, Wednesday night brought in the craziest wind storm we have had since we moved here. Our patio doesn't look too bad, but we will have a little cleaning up to do this weekend. It was so windy airplanes were grounded at the airport and WORST OF ALL Alan and I had to have our tennis lesson cut short! When dust is blowing in your eyes and blowing the balls all over I guess it's time to call it a night!

This past weekend Alan and I went to Roy, Utah to help celebrate niece Lileigh's 2nd birthday. Mom, sister Erin, brother James, and his fiance Aimee all came down from Seattle to help with the celebration, so it turned into a mini-family reunion. We had a short visit but a good time. There was a ton of snow everywhere but thankfully, it wasn't on the roads!
Here is the birthday girl, Lileigh getting ready to blow out her candles on the cake.
Rikki said the binkies are going to have to go and Lileigh will be cut off soon now that she is two!
Nephew Jaxon having fun on his slide. He is a wild boy!
