Our Vegas Get-Away!

Chuck had a meeting up in Vegas last week, so we got to tag-along for a little get-away. We picked him up after work and then headed on up. I used my new favorite hotel reservation site, Priceline.com to book the room. We got a room at the Riviera for $39! It has just been renovated and the rooms were really nice! Great beds with comfy down comforters and pillows!


Since we didn't have a lot of time and we didn't arrive until after 7:00 pm, we thought we'd head down to the M&M World. The traffic was already crazy on the Strip when we were trying to find the hotel, so we decided to take the "Trolley" - also known as the city BUS! It was an adventure - not one that Chuck ever wants to experience again! It took us almost 2 hours to get down to the M&M store! We learned our lesson - make sure you have map and always be on the right side of the street! We walked most of the way back to the hotel since we never saw any busses and the ones we saw were packed!! I think we finally caught one for the last few blocks! Kayley was a trooper - we were proud of her!










Kayley had fun anyway once we got there! The M&M World is 4 stories!







A view from the 2nd floor of the bus - we got the front seats! Talk about a WILD ride! People in Vegas have a death wish I think!




























My mom loves Paris, so we had to get a pic of Kayley with the Eiffel (or as Kayley calls it "Awful Tower") in the background. Notice she is on the cell phone talking to Grandma!



We got to see the Fountains at Bellagio on our way back up the Strip to our hotel.

A PAIR OF SHOES - AUTHOR UNKNOWN

I am wearing a pair of shoes.
They are ugly shoes.
Uncomfortable shoes.
I hate my shoes.
Each day I wear them, and each day I wish I had another pair.
Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think I can take another step.
Yet, I continue to wear them.
I get funny looks wearing these shoes.
They are looks of sympathy.
I can tell in others eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not theirs.
They never talk about my shoes.
To learn how awful my shoes are might make them uncomfortable.
To truly understand these shoes you must walk in them.
But, once you put them on, you can never take them off.
I now realize that I am not the only one who wears these shoes. There are many pairs in this world.
Some woman are like me and ache daily as they try and walk in them.
Some have learned how to walk in them so they don't hurt quite as much.
Some have worn the shoes so long that days will go by before they think about how much they hurt.
No woman deserves to wear these shoes.
Yet, because of these shoes I am a stronger woman.
These shoes have given me the strength to face anything.
They have made me who I am.
I will forever walk in the shoes of a woman who has lost a child.
