ben had to do some business in las vegas a couple of weeks ago, so we all went along for the ride. ben's boss has a beautiful home in henderson that we stayed in one night and then we stayed at the luxor for a couple nights... which was really weird to do with our kids, but hey, that's the hotel that priceline.com assigned us. we went to the shark reef aquarium at mandalay bay, which our kids LOVED and are still talking about. we played "rockband" (kind of like guitar hero, but add in some drums and a microphone and rock your heart out) with the borgersons, some friends of the shafer family from the lovely town of aberdeen, wa. we went hiking with my friend lark and her family. we had a great time. as always, we didn't take nearly enough pictures, but here's a few...
we found kadin like this lounging on one of the beds at the boss's house... he's totally into living in the lap of luxury.
joel and kadin driving the rental car... they wish.
hiking with the fillmores. lark's little girl, afton, was seriously a pro hiker and climber, and lark was a true champ - she went hiking while 9 months pregnant. yes, that's right folks, 9 months pregnant. she rocks.
good times were had by all.
