Day 1...heading out

Thanks to Bob Thies, Tom and I got to the airport by 11:30 ready for our flight to leave at 1:30. After a one hour delay, we took off heading for Las Vegas. We landed at 3:30, shuttled to get the baggage, very proud of ourselves that everything was going well. After waiting in line for 1+ hours for our rental, we began the adventure of finding Kent and Mary's house. Thankfully, we made it to their gated community. By this time, it was 6:30 (9:30 our time)!!! We were thrilled to be there, were thrilled to greet the Borgaards and quickly changed clothes to go for dinner.

The Stratosphere was incredible!!! It is the restaurant at "The Top of the World"!!! We saw the entire city of Las Vegas while eating dinner. That's a LOT of lightbulbs burning in that city!!!

We "hopped" back back into the car and headed to Main Street Casino which is "old Las Vegas". Great experience.

After wandering around the area, we headed back to the house and Mary and Kent entertained us with Lemon pie. It was 2:30 in the morning for Tom and me but what a great day it had been.

  1. Love Top Of the World restaurant at Stratosphere. I usually take my first time guests to Vegas there. Brent ate there the first time he went out.
