Las Vegas

Paul and I and our friends Kaitlyn and Jordan had the opportunity to go to Las Vegas this weekend. When Paul's brother was down here for Hayden's blessing, he told us about an air show at the Nellis Air Force Base that was coming up so we thought it would be cool to go. We left after work Friday night and got to Vegas around 2 am. Paul's brother Billy met us and we followed him to his house for the few hours of sleep before the kids woke up. The next day we went to the air show.


Us and Billy's family waiting for the Thunderbirds to come out for their show.

By that time, the ground was pretty comfortable.


There were skydivers that had some colored stuff shooting out of their boots, it was pretty cool.


Paul looking into where the fire comes out of the plane.





Us in the cargo hold of the B 52





The next day we went to the busiest Denny's in the world... it was on the strip of course. Then we decided to walk to the M&M store (it wasn't very close we discovered).
This was the Harley Davidson Restraunt on the strip




This was a motorcycle that Jordan just loved... it was completely covered in leather.

Paul, me and Billy waiting for the water show at the Bellagio hotel to start.

Your pictures are great! I hope you guys were able to overcome the "fatigue" factor and mostly enjoy your time! This was so much a part of Paul's life when he was young. I'm sure it brought back a bunch of memories for him! Wish we could have been there!
