Back from Vegas

Here are a few highlights from our trip. I don't normally do the "strip" while we are there (I lived there for a year and it's just some place I try to avoid now). Although, I do stay on the strip as my little man LOVES to stay at the Castle aka Excalibur. My daughter spends most her time with her Great Grandma. Ashton, my son, is too much for my Grandma to handle so I generally do things with him, while Amelia and Great Grandma spend time together. Overall, it was a good trip. I did get hit by a taxi and he took off. Ashton handled the excitement of the trip much better than I expected. Although it wasn't easy by any means! I got to visit and photograph one of my favorite places - the Redrocks. I wished I could have made it out to The Valley of Fire again - next time.

Redrock


Isn't it just gorgeous!? I could photograph this place forever and never get sick of it!



The road on the scenic route in Redrock Canyon


I love this one =) But of course if you've been on my blog or flickr you know I love flare photos!

I did try to get him to walk the strip, but all the commotion - people, lights, noises - he started to panic. So we went back to the room where he was happy.


I think I can say this was the highlight of the trip for him! Ha. He LOVES to watch the chicken go round and round.


See - happy (and very loud, lol)


Well, that about sums up the trip. Now I need to go peek around and find some new photo challenges to enter =)
