The Clark Clan just returned from a event week of fun and warmer temperatures in Las Vegas. The week started out a bit rocky for me as I still had a lot of pain and discomfort as a result of hernia surgery that I underwent a few days prior to leaving (the 12-hour drive didn’t help things either). However, by the end of the first weekend I was feeling mostly human again.
We took Nathan and Zack around the whole strip, seeing all the cool sights like the lions, aquariums, statues, fountains, free shows and street performers. For them, it truly was a paradise of sensory overload. Aside from the strip we toured the Vegas Museum of Nature and Science, the Hoover Dam and we spent half a day exploring rock formations and discovering petroglyphs in the Valley of Fire State Park.
We broke up the activities and trips with days lounging at the pool while the boys played in the waterfall and kids splash park that was at the timeshare. While we were away, snow storms raged in Colorado and we paid for it a bit on the way home. I-70 was closed in Vail and were were stuck on the freeway for about an hour there. It snowed heavily through Colorado the entire trip home but it was worth the long drive to spend a week of fun in the sun!
