On the road again- to Las Vegas!

Tomorrow morning, bright and early (as in 5 a.m.) I'll be on the road again, traveling to Las Vegas on business. I'll be there 7-15 September.

This isn't my first time in Vegas on business. I think I went twice last year. Vegas isn't so bad, but the strip looses it's charm after about 3 days.

Oronzo and Snuggle Bug are flying out to meet me there tomorrow night and they're staying until next Monday, late morning. I'm thankful that I'll have some time with them when I'm not working.

What's even more surprising is that I'm going to have time with my older sister, Tia, as well! It ends up that her husband has a work conference in Las Vegas and she decided to tag along, leaving their two children behind with the grandparents. They'll be in Vegas 11-15 September!

I haven't seen my older sister since last Christmas, so I'm really excited to have the opportunity to hang out with her next week, when I'm not working. We're still marveling over the odds that we'll both be in Vegas during the same week!

I know I owe my faithful readers some pictures and videos from our Labor Day weekend vacation and I promise I'll produce them, soon. It's just been so hectic. We arrived home from that trip late afternoon yesterday. I unpacked, threw laundry in the washer and then prepared for work today. Now, I'm taking a break from packing to leave again tomorrow for eight days! Whew, I'm exhausted already.

I'm hoping to post at least a brief account of our Labor Day trip this weekend, or early next week. I'll have at least a couple of pictures to share, although the bulk of them still need to be uploaded to our computer. The readers digest version of our trip, we had a fantastic time! Snuggle Bug had a blast at the beach and frolicking in the ocean and our little house was just perfect! I'll tell you more when I can!

So, does anyone live in Las Vegas? Any recommendations on fun things that I can do with Snuggle Bug that don't involve the strip and would appeal to a toddler?

My hubby and I love Vegas. I was Maid of honor in one of my friends wedding there about 7 years ago. We always stay at the Luxor, they have a fantastic breakfast buffett on the weekends! Have a great time with your family and sister's family, how nice. :)
