...last day in Vegas...

Lisa was up early and out the door to catch her flight. We were up and around earlier that we had been all week so we could check out on time. We had arranged for the Bell Desk to hold our luggage until we had to go to the airport. While we got that arranged, Mom took some pictures of the hotel...
This was the road we walked to the Strip.

Melissa's friends were coming in a various times on Friday to spend the weekend in Vegas - Nichole was the first to arrive.
My roommate from college, Andrea, had come on Thursday with some of her friends for the weekend, so we met up on Friday afternoon at the Venetian for lunch.
It was fun to catch up, even if it was just for a short time!

We went back to our hotel to grab our luggage and get to the airport. We said goodbye to Melissa and Nichole as they left to get to their new hotel on Fremont Street.

We made it through check in and security - LONG LINES!! - with enough time to grab Starbucks and do a little shopping. Grandma had lost her watch sometime during the day on Thursday, so we took her to Brighton to pick out a new watch. I told the salesgirls there that she needed a new watch because she'd pawned hers to gamble. She was so embarassed! :)
Mom ended up finding one too - so pretty!

We made it home resting up and regrouping to leave for Priest Lake this week! I love summer!!
