Day 2 Power Pass

the 2nd half of the 2nd day was spent at the Star Trek Experience and at the Mirage. It was a good day. There were 2 4-D experiences at Star Trek - "invasion of the Borg" & "attack of the Klingons". We saw the dolphin and lion & tigers habitats and the Sigfried & Roy secrete garden.

Power Pass day 1 (day 2 in LV)

After aquiring the Power Pass - we headed to Circus Circus. The indoor amusement park was quite neat! We did quite a few fun rides then headed out to see Star Trek adventure, then on to the Mirage for the hidden garden of lions & tigers and the dolphin habitat. It was very neat! Kids took many pics - see online web album.
Also on this evening we visited the Luxor and explored King Tut's museum where they have exact replication of the actual burial chamber along with numerous articacts. It was a self guided audio tour and one of the kids favorite things. (no pics - i think we were getting tired that evening) At the Luxor, we also did another 4-D experience - "Luxor's In Search of the Obelisk" - Luke & I decided that it was more like being in a video game than some of the other 4-D's we did. It was a simulation of being dropped in a mineshaft into an excavation then a battle for the Obelisk. Very exciting and fun for our whole family.
We ate dinner at a buffett at Excalibur - it was not as good as Main Street.

Day 2 - FAO toy store & LV sign - Details

We went to Ceasar's Palace to pick up our Power Pass from Planet Hollywood's store there. Found out that we had $40 a day to spend there - kids picked out what they wanted the 1st day and we ate a good lunch there the 2nd day.

Before leaving there - we visited FAO Schwarz toy store - the kids had a BLAST! So many toys, so little time. very cool. Kids got to play on the key board like in Big.
Then off to use the Power Pass.

Vegas Christmas - Day 1 Details

we flew out of OKC at about 10:30 AM with a 2 hour plus layover in Denver. Not so bad. Ate lunch & kids watched a movie on the lap top. Got to see Pike's Peak from the plane on the way in. Arrived in Las Vegas at about 3:30 PM local time, got all of our baggage & car (which took a good 90 minutes) and off to check into the hotel.
Kid's got to experience their 1st Vegas Buffet! Raven ate 4 plates and Luke 3. It was filet & shrimp night :) good for the carnivores of our family!
Everyone was exhausted by the time we made it back to our room. off to bed and get ready for day 2 - POWER PASS!

'tis the season

Raven & Luke read the scripture and lit the candle this Sunday in Epiphany.
The Sollbergers came by this weekend and the kids played pinball (so did the parents) and had a great time.
Jake is such a cute dog :)

Ice Storm Dec 2007

Ice it did - I'd say over 1/3 inch on tree limbs and such. And VERY slipery! Jake didn't enjoy walking on the grass - sounded like crunching glass!
No school again tomorrow - not so much fun.
Kids are excited until they get board again tomorrow! #%#@#%M#$KN%*$%^
