Las Vegas Trip” width=”225″ height=”300″ />Las Vegas Trip: Under the Weather
Just 3 weeks ago, I was in Las Vegas and I’m already back. No, I’m not lost. I’d picked up Jerry Seinfeld tickets while waiting to see Cher at Caesar’s Palace, knowing it would be the perfect excuse to pick up where I’d left off exploring Las Vegas.
I had intended to make this a “Las Vegas Family Activities” post, but things didn’t work out that way. Unfortunately, I arrived amidst a nasty wind storm that resulted in taking down a chunk of the Mirage sign, and throwing heavy lounge chairs into the Venetian pool. In fact the storm was so bad, my plane had 3 failed attempts to land at the Las Vegas International Airport before being diverted to Ontario. Las Vegas International was closed for the following 4 hours. Needless to say, I arrived over 5 hours later than expected, had missed dinner and was too tired to do anything other than go to sleep.
I’d flown my mother, sister, and 4 year old niece in from Denver for the trip. They were lucky enough to have arrived before the height of the storm but given the weather, they opted to stay in for the evening.
Note to self: April may not be the best time to visit Las Vegas.
