We got in late Tuesday night and Doug had to be at the Mandalay Bay Wednesday, Thursday and part of Friday. The kids and I stayed close to the pool,but I still got too much of that "dry heat" on Day 1 and ended up with a massive migraine.
So, I kept a bit more inside on Thursday and all was well. We stayed at Doug's brother's house that they bought when the real estate bubble burst so they bought for investment and retirement. Nice for us!!
|I LOVE this canopy bed!|
I took some pictures inside because I love the colors and style!
So Friday, Doug came to the house and then the girls and I got ready for our "Phantom of the Opera" experience at The Venetian hotel. It was an abridged show and I didn't love the actor playing the Phantom...he was a Tony-award winning, slightly pigeon-toed, short person and I was rooting for Raoul all the way! But the sets and the actual staging were fantastic!!
Then when Doug came to get us we took a walk up to the "canal" and palazzo.
It was a long, fun day and the temperature was kind to me, only 100*
Sunday, the girls went to church, I got to SLEEP (finally) and then Kian and I went out to the pool again while Doug went our with his old friend, Joel. For the life of me, I don't know why I didn't think to take any pictures of the two of them!
I loved the outside of their house. It is stucco and has the details that are reminiscent of the Spanish missions of California.
Oh, and also Kian got to play pool which he absolutely loved! He played every chance he got and he would yell out what numbers went into the pockets.
