The city is giving us a break from the National Parks… or is it? We had to get the Junior Ranger badges from Death Valley! So we drove from Vegas to the Valley and earned those badges. We walked through some of the sand dunes and explored (and tasted) the salt flats. We had a picnic lunch and then took the Jr. Ranger pledge!
Guess who’s in town? Grandma and GrandBob came to visit us from Hawaii! Grandma was on the lookout for some Halloween costumes and she did not disappoint – perfect outfits for both of us. We were still missing a few things for Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s) and the Ice Queen (NOT Elsa from Frozen) so we went to garage sales and thrift shops in search of some accessories. Our costumes are complete now but we are keeping the final look a surprise until Halloween (stay tuned!)
Rolling Joy needed some repairs so while she was in the shop, we stayed on the Strip! The pool at Mandalay Bay was awesome and the games at Circus Circus led to lots of stuffed animals. We walked around through the Luxor, Excalibur, and New York New York. We met up with an old friend and went bowling at Brooklyn Bowl. Lots of fun things to do on the Strip!
