Back to Real Life

I'm back from vacation, and it went well. For the first two days, Mom and I walked around and saw things and people that I hadn't seen in a long time. Friday, we left for Las Vegas, and stopped at the Casablanca Casino in Mesquite to see an old family friend.

We met up with Wanda and her kids in Las Vegas, and went to dinner at Main Street Station at their seafood buffet.

It was not as good as Maryland seafood, but still good. Saturday, the whole family went out thrift shopping.

Later, Mom and I took Bebe swimming at the hotel pool, and then Mom and I went gambling. The next day, we drove back to Utah, with a short stop in Mesquite - where I made back all of the money I lost in Las Vegas:-) Monday, I relaxed, finished reading a book, packed, and walked around town one last time.

The flight back was uneventful, but I did see the forest fire in Fort Collins, Colorado from the airplane, about 150 miles away.

After Tom picked me up from the airport, we went to the Inner Harbor to avoid rush hour traffic on the interstate.

The trip was nice, and a little bittersweet - I'm glad to have gone.
