    I too LOVE a great steam before and after a massage. Fingers crossed it is there soon. I am feeling for sure by the time of my massage Mother's Day weekend (next weekend) but hopefully by the 4th for you!

    Good morning Las Vegas from what really needs to be called Mike's Place as @MikeOPensacola loves it so much though Wynn calls it Terrace Point Cafe. What an absolutely perfect morning. It is going to 97 today!!

    I missed your question before @Sonya. So the two most challenging things I did were to hike to the second highest peak at Zabriskie Point from the base of the paved walkway and then later in the day before sunset at Dante's Peak. As you know at Dante you can hike up from the parking lot to the right or go to an area to the left, which is I think more popular. I hiked up to the area to a point to the right of the parking lot. I have a couple of photos on my camera phone I will post though I was to nervous to take it out most of the time. But with two expert hikers and photographers with me, who between the two of them took a few thousand pics, I should have some pretty awesome photos of my overcoming my fears and doing the hikes.

    The first photo is of Ryan in front of me. Jess, who I nick named Spiderwoman given how quickly and numbly she moved, is the sitting pit on this ledge! She walked behind me. I was freaked even looking at her but slowly took my camera phone out to take a pick. The photo of the parking lot/paved road below I took as we were walking back down for perspective though we had been at a higher point. Hope that all makes sense.

    ETA: I just took off the photo of Jess. I am pretty sure she wouldn't mind but I want to get her permission before posting of her.

    I was still full from SW last night so called myself ordering a light vegetable fertitta. :) Very good. And I just love little containers of honey, preserves, etc. Yes, I used the strawberry one and the other two are in my bag. When I open them weeks from now in NYC to have with some toast it will bring back some great memories.

    That looks tempting. What's the range of the coin-in per pull on that game?

    Flowers, thank you, thank you for doing these awesome TRs. You are so generous with your time in taking us all along.I am so looking forward to your trip with your Mom- my Mom and I were a vegas team for a long time. She passed last July very unexpectedly, but we had our final vegas trip together over Christmas before.
    It was our first Dec. trip, which I had always wanted to do, and am so glad I got to share it with her. God, I miss her.

    We (hubs, and I) hope to make it there in the fall (waiting on vaccines, and some sort of permission from our gov. (BC, Canada), and then hopefully a trip shortly thereafter with one or both of my sisters (will be a kind of tribute trip to Mom).

    Hoping for a few days at Wynn, and a few at Cosmo- love both, and really don't mind moving hotels mid-trip.

    Can you tell me if there will ever be something to replace Country Club? That was my all time favorite brunch spot, even though Lakeside is lovely. The food at CC just had a bit more variety, and something about that restaurant just gave me that ahhh feeling.

    Here's to more winning for you, and a wonderful trip later with your Mom

    You can bet pennies and for as low as 50 cents a pull up through 5 dollar coins though I not sure of rhe total max pull as it is fewer lines with dollar, two dollar and ten dollar. I like dimes and quarters and covering all of the lines. The MAJOR is bigger if you are playing dollars and above and thr mini and minors all vary based on denom. Similar deal.as with Lightnung Link, etc.etc.

    Wow. I have to say the strawberry preserve was slammin. I normally do just a little but this time used the whole mini container. Never heard of the brand before but it's Wynn so I figure it would be top of the line. Even more of a reason to pack them home and now I am thinking more Terrace Point for breakfast so I can get more of these. Lol. I know I just BUY a jar but it wouldn't evoke memories like these baby jars. :love:

    So glad you made the trip with your mom. (Insert big heart here.) I had heard some time ago that there would be a restaurant to replace Countey Club but haven't heard anything in a few months. I will see if I can get the scoop! I chatted with my host last night and he was cracking up as I told him over the weekend what my friends at the spa told me about the water treatment areas opening soon. He said an employee memo went around yesterday with the same info and he was chuckling as he had heard the news from me first. Lol
