Well we are at the airport waiting for our early flight to Vegas. This trip will be quite a bit different than any trip I have been on before. My wife and I were going to take her parents to Vegas back in June for thier 50th anniversary, but my wife became very ill and was hospitalized for almost a month. So we had to postpone the trip. Well things are much better now so we decided to take them over Christmas. My in-laws have never been to Vegas so this should be very interesting. They are on a fixed monthly budget so the gambling will be at very low levels. My MIL will probably not gamble at all, but I will have to keep an eye on my FIL. He can go a bit crazy and spend way too much. We will also have our 2 kids (boy 7 and girl 13) with us which will be a 1st for us in Vegas as well. We will be spending 6 nights at MGM. Items on the agenda include. Hoover Dame tour - today Ethel M Chocolate Factory - today KU vs UNLV basketball game tomorrow Hitting the major sites such as Bellagio fountains, etc... Friday will be spent downtown. Circus circus for the kids at some point. And maybe the pinball hall of fame. I will try to update through out the trip. Should have some decent pictures of the sites. RCJH!
