Our Family Trip to Nevada!

It started out great, the kids slept (for about 1 out of the 7 hours of the drive).

The next day they took us out to eat and the kids had a great time in their mini bowling alley.

And the little guy got some driving practice!

They let us play on their Wii fit. I know this is a bad picture, and that's exactly how I like it.

They took us swimming at their community pool.

My very white Utah legs, and I'm not telling ya which are mine.

Monday we went and visited Hoover Dam. My husband being a Civil Engineer REALLY wanted to go here.

The MASSIVE bridge that they are building.

The family!!!

Who knew they had my FAVORITE Ice Cream in Las Vegas. I shouldn't even call it ice cream because it's soooooooooo much better. Nelson's Frozen Custard......heaven!!! And to make things even better we went to Cafe Rio before this!
My Sister and Brother n' law's beautiful triplets!l

My beautiful kids (carried in my belly one at a time, thank goodness).

My daughter wanted me to get a picture of the palm trees in St. George.

The clouds on the way home. I love when it's raining and thundering outside, and we are safe and sound all together in our home or car!

We had such a wonderful time. Thank you Linda and Jason for spoiling us with your incredible cooking and fun activities.

Looks like a gret trip!!! Welcome home! I love the pic of the kids sleeping in the car...all their heads tilting in the same direction :)

Looks like you guys had a fun time. We went to Hoover Dam last year and my husband loved it too. They were just beginning to build that bridge last April (2008). Nielsen's Custard in Las Vegas? Who knew. One of my favorite things in Utah. Mimi

Ok maybe this is a weird comment, but I also love Neilson's Frozen Custard. Everytime we go to UT we bring a cooler and bring some back to Idaho on ice. We will be going to Vegas in Dec. for a tradeshow. I would be interestsed to know where you found Neilson's? Was it inside a casino? Near the strip ?? Anyway if you know an address or an aprx. location. I would love to know. Thanks
