Hanging Out In Vegas

Who would have thought Vegas would have been so much fun?

Oh, I know....lots of people...but I really didn't.  I knew it would be nice to get away....and be with my husband - which is why I went along with it.  But THIS IS GREAT!

For those that are new and have no idea what I'm speaking of.....  I've gone along on a conference trip with my husband to Las Vegas.  We came out two days before the conference one day for traveling, getting the rental car and getting acquainted with the area, one day for just the two of us to sightsee and relax, three days for the conference (poor husband has to attend lectures which I guess is okay - for HIM - But I get to hang out in the room or by poolside with my books, paper and pencils to read and write to my heart's content ALL DAY LONG without interruption!), three evenings of shows, dinners and time together - ALONE- uninterrupted!!!- and another day for travel....

While I'm busy writing future posts, editing and writing picture book manuscripts, critiquing for friends, and reading all sorts of things - I thought I'd drop a few pictures here to let you see some of what we've been up to!  I hope you enjoy 🙂

There's someone in a parachute here.... really, there is!  We saw a group of about 7 or 8 of them gliding down... it was very hard to get a good picture though.

We have a thing about taking pictures of signs....  I longed to spot a Bighorn but the signs were all we saw on this trip.

My sweetheart and I on the way to the Hoover Dam - stopped by Lake Meade- which I learned was created during the building of the dam.

Overlook from the Dam....and yes, we crossed that bridge!

On the way back, we came upon this sign....  It made us laugh.  I thought there would be more ways to get to Vegas---but apparently there's just this one.  Maybe that's why it's said that the things that happen in Vegas, STAY in Vegas....
