My husband got a ticket to the Amazon taking over the World Conference, or something like that, so I decided to join him on the ten hour drive, because I do love adventures as long as they aren't too exciting and by that I mean cars breaking down or other unfortunate circumstances beyond my control, ha ha.
He asked me if I wanted to go at about 4:00 P.M. and we were on the road by 7:30 P.M. and walked into our hotel room by 6:00 A.M.It was huge and pretty. I believe that is marble tile in the grand entry after coming through double doors. On the left is a closet with lights that turn on automatically when you open the doors, like a refrigerator. Then, there is a large half bath and then the living room.
These hotels in Vegas are just huge, or dare I call them large and spacious buildings, ha ha. (Mormon joke). My 7 year-old wanted his blanket from the car, so my husband said, "O.K. See you in half an hour," but he stalled long enough that our son fell asleep before he went.They had some really nice Christmas decorations in the lobbies, and we got free apple cider from people dressed like elves. I didn't take a picture of the elves, but, a winter scene,
The first time we ventured out of the hotel room, I forgot my camera, which is too bad, because there were some amazing sights, including painted domed ceilings and the half-mile indoor canal with the gondolas and the gondoliers that can sing, siiinnnggg so beautifully in Italian. The singers were my favorite part. I really wanted to applaud every time they finished a song.
So, that lasted a couple of hours, I think, our first sight-seeing adventure. I didn't dare go into any of the cool stores that I wanted to go in with my three little ones. We went back to get the camera and rest and I found out the battery on the camera was nearly dead. So, I set it to charge.
Fortunately, my hubby didn't go to the party connected with the conference, so he stayed with the little ones while I ventured out by myself for a little while, but I couldn't find the one store I was most interested in again, so I treated myself to some frozen yogurt with all kinds of toppings, so delicious! And I brought back dinner for the hubby. The little ones weren't interested in eating out. They were happy with the travelling food snacks I had packed before leaving. It's nice when they are easy to please.

(The title quote is from Veggie Tales, which I love.)I guess I haven't been having many adventures here in Mundane Land, or maybe I've been having so many adventures that I haven't had time to blog about them. hmm...
Anyway, on Thanksgiving Day my little family went for a walk at some nearby hills.We started late in the afternoon and the sun decided to go down rather quickly.
