I noticed that some friends of ours, Bill and Elke Marriott were here in the park and we ended up 4 sites away from them. As the girls were out, we popped by for a short visit at 6 pm. Surprised the heck out of them.
At 9 pm the girls stumbled in from shopping. Barely able to talk they were laughing so hard. Apparently they went into the wrong coach .... right inside up the stairs and said hello we are home and then were greated by a bulldog who did not look like Freya and who luckily was friendly. Lights were off so they thought we had gone to bed. Kat immediately said as she was first up the stairs "this is not our furniture or dog!" They ran out, jumped into the car and moved a few more campsites down the road. Too funny. This is why people should lock their doors!
Friday we were all up by 6:30 am again. Had a leisurely morning with coffee, showers and more laundry. Bill and Elke stopped by for a short gab before everyone got busy for the day. After breakfast burritos were made, dishes done, dog walked, we were all out the door by 10:15 heading to Red Rock Canyon National Recreation Area. Unfortunately it was a pretty grey sky today but the girls enjoyed the drive. It was quite windy as well, so only a view brave rock climbers were seen.
|Always laughing together!|

|Kristi happened to notice a waterfall but when Ray processed the picture there were actually two.|
|A wash with water actually in it coming across the road.|
Notice Kat's mini beer compared to ours. LOL As always the food was great. Next stop home. The girls took Freya to a dog park to wear off some energy for us.
All dressed up in our finest duds we had dinner at Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill. It was fabulous and the flavours were amazing. Thankyou to Kristi and Jason, and Garrett and Kat as this was our Christmas present. After dinner we did a short wander through Cesaer's Palace to the Trevi Fountain. Ray was done as we had a busy day so we were back home by 8 pm.
Picture from Google showing the restaurant without people.
I found the ceiling and decor fascinating.

Next a short walk in Cesaer's Palace to the Trevi Fountain.
|I'm the "bag lady". Kristi managed to shop and buy something in a record 10 minutes!|
Walking down the corridors looks like you are outside ... very realistic. Lots of expensive stores on either side.
Saturday morning the girls were out of the coach by 8 am to take a taxi to the Vegas Strip to spend their last day touring. We will meet them at Freemont Street at 5 pm for dinner. It could rain this evening but Freemont Street is mostly under cover so should be okay. Otherwise today will be a quiet day for us and lots of rest for Ray.
The girls have been amazing at helping out, walking the dog and keeping the coach tidy for us. Lots of laughs and they are always happy campers. They sure are great company.
3 pm the girls called and said they were done and it was starting to rain downtown. Ray was still in a great deal of pain so did not mind cancelling going to Freemont Street for dinner. Kristi and Kat took a taxi back and we ordered pizza to be delivered. Ray ordered their biggest size pizza... 20" and the box looked like a yard er metre, corner to corner. Hope everyone is hungry! It rained quite heavily all night so the choice to stay in was a wise one. Another great day and evening with the girls. We are going to be so sad when they leave tomorrow morning. Freya will miss her playmates. Packing up all of their stuff and new purchases took a bit of time but we were all out the door by 10 am to the airport.
We will try and see Fremont street and the Bellagio in the next couple of days depending upon Ray's back. He is still pretty sore from our adventures with the girls. If we miss it this time, oh well Vegas will still be here for another time.
