Welcome Back, Kotter

On the 24th of last month, I got up early, got ready, and went to see my sister.

Las Vegas Blvd

That’s right, I got to spend over a week in Vegas.  And it was a blast, as usual.  Originally, I had made the plan last spring to go out and visit my sister for her birthday (which was the 25th).  At first, it was just going to be me.  Then Mum decided she wanted to go, followed by my brother and his girlfriend.  My poor BIL was inundated with the In-Laws; we somewhat overran their house.  (My father and his wife will be headed out today as well, but they will be staying in a hotel.)  At least we were a bit spread out so there were only 2 days where everyone was at the house at the same time.  It worked out.

We went to Springs Preserve for a little bit and saw the butterfly exhibit.

From the roof we got to see a wonderful view.  Including a crazy storm as it slowly made it’s way across the valley.

We had some great food and drinks,

Went shopping, and had some all around good times.

I even got my knit on and some reading in.

I think I'm going to rip this back, go with something smaller.

(Of course, I often forgot to take pictures of things and even forgot the camera upon occasion.  That’s usually how I roll.)

Overall it was a wonderful trip and I’m so glad I got to go.  I didn’t really want to come back home and to work.  I hope to be able to visit again soon.

Maybe February. 🙂

(It took me way longer than it should to post this, but I finally got it done. :))
