Las Vegas Diary-Day Two

I let the girls sleep as long as I could but it was 11:00 am and I was antsy to get going. Shauna let me have her bed while she bunked w/Wilhela. I crept into their room and sorta screamed, "So, what are the plans for today?" They both looked at me curiously (or was that pure hatred) but got on up.

Bean had to work today so it was just Wilhela, Shauna and myself and we headed to my favourite place-The Biggest Souvenir Shop in the World. I found souvenirs for my team at work and we headed to Treasure Island.

My friend Pete had seen Mystere here and he wanted a tee shirt. I offered to pick one up for him. I found a great tee and decided to throw in a Mystere baseball cap too. Pete went to Hawaii and was kind enough to bring me a great souvenir-a Coach bag! Buying a tee and cap is not too much to do.

By this time the girls are hungry so we go into The Coffee Shop in Treasure Island. Beware of this place! The menu is pricey (a burger costs $12!) so we left. I did ask the hostess if there was a buffet in this casino and she kindly pointed it out. Now this buffett was absolutely, hands down, without a doubt wonderful! Here I ate:
-saffron rice
-seafood stew (mussels, clams, shrimp, scallops)
-roasted chicken thigh
-scoop of vanilla ice cream
-two to three chocolate balls

The girls even pigged out at this one. The price is $15 a head before 4p. After 4p the price goes up to $25 but there are different selections added to the dinner choices. I will definitely make this a routine stop from now on!

Next we head home for more resting, more laughing, more talking and wait for Bean. She and Shauna are going to choir rehearsal then the Youth Ministry is treating the youngsters to see "Shrek". Now my idea of a fun night in Vegas is not strolling through Texas Station casino w/a bunch of hooting and hollering adolescents. Wilhela and I beg off and stay at home. We're still pretty full from the buffett so we snack on yogurt and fruit and watch t.v. I've never seen "Conan the Barbarian". It's on and I enjoyed it. Then I'm off to bed. I'm bushed.

These recaps of your vacation are great - making me very hungry - but they are great, all the same!

you've NEVER seen Conan the Barbarian??!!

(don't you hate when people do that? You just said you've never seen it, and here I am asking again)....

Anyway, I love Vegas, I know it's too late but can you get one of your nieces to pick up a "Crazy Horse II" tee shirt for me.


p.s. - sushi, yuck.
