Home Again

















We're home. So glad to be here. J did really well considering that Vegas is way over-stimulating. She loved Hoover Dam. As is tradition, we stopped in Boulder City to see the video of the construction of the Dam. Interesting to see the construction of the new road over the dam as well. I brought her in my room at 5:30 AM on Monday to see all the lights. "It's more beautiful than I ever thought it would be", she exclaimed. Then we proceeded to watch the sunrise over the mountains.




Monday night she ate more sushi at Nobu than I care to think about. Honestly, I think that child would eat sushi 3 times a day if you would let her. After dinner she hit a wall. Getting up at 4 AM and staying up till 9 was not a good thing.




Tuesday morning (as we were getting ready to go to the dam) she was grumpy and cantankerous. Ashley took her back upstairs to the room for a prescribed fit. She came back downstairs a different child. It totally changed things up for her and she had a fabulous day.




Tuesday night G took me to see Cher which he had been keeping a huge secret for 4/5 weeks. Great show!
Very grateful that G has to travel with work so that we have so many opportunities. Great geography lessons are had through travel!




Last night she was in the bed at 7, snoring at 7:05 and slept until 9:30 this morning.






Today we are doing mountains of laundry. Back to the real world...


Thanks to BT, Lee, and A for the award. When I'm not "Over the Top" with laundry....I'll be back.

On a sidenote: Does anyone know anything about lalemics? I have an appointment with an instructor for an evaluation with Special k next week.

Welcome home! I love Vegas. We got married there. It is totally overwhelming and silly all at the same time. I'm glad J survived :)

Welcome back... Nobu is my 11 year olds favorite resturant when we are in Nassau. We always tease her that after a month on the island, their kitchen staff cheers as our plane flies away. She loves all the food there!

glad to hear that you had fun and that J was able to keep it together. We are taking a page from your book around the fits and it seems to help.

Sorry, I meant, vacation without kids.

Maybe people assumed that.
