Vacation in Vegas

We spent part of Nic's spring break in Vegas. With the plane tickets we had left over from last year's canceled vacation (Dad's leg amputation) we decided to get some sun & spring training baseball. With spring training almost over we opted to catch the last game at Cashmen field in Vegas. We stayed at Mandalay Bay.
Steve & Nic at our Freemont Street "experience". I could not get a picture with Nic's eyes open. I think he was just being difficult.
We visited the Hoover Dam on the yuckiest day. What was nice is the storm blew in & then out in the matter of a day. NOT like home. That gray sky is almost a staple. Can you believe how tall Nic is getting and that he allowed this picture of us together? Where did the little baby go that loved to be held by mom? Well he grew up & up & up...6'3" and growing.
Nic captured between the new bridge being built over the canyon. This way they can keep large vehicles from having to go over the dam. What an incredible structure, both the dam and bridge.
Ken Giffey Jr. back with the Seattle Mariners!!!!! Yaha baby.
What a swing he has. Hard to believe he is the oldest one on the team and he is months away from being my age, well Steve's. I will have my 41st (shock & dismay) before Griffey turns 40.
Is Nic trying to hitch a ride? Two dudes at the ballpark on a sunny, beautiful Saturday afternoon.
The view from the Stratosphere observation area. Nic wanted to go on the rides at the top so I sent the camera up with Steve. I was too afraid to see him get on the rides, so I stayed down around the casino.
Nic & another rider on the claw. This ride is one of three at the top & the claw picks them up & over the edge so they are just twirling in the air. Scary!!!!
That is all for now. I will post some more Easter cards tomorrow. Now it's time to concentrate on Mother's Day gifts.
