Once the lists were written (with bolded emergency numbers), and Alice was safely handed over to Gran and Grandad, we jetted over to the airport to, barely make our flight to the city that never sleeps (wait - is that New York? well, in this case it's Vegas!)
We stayed at the Treasure Island hotel and casino right on the Las Vegas strip. Vegas is everything you've seen in the movies - bright lights, non-stop entertainment, decadent food, big money, and beautiful people. We tried to strike a good balance between taking it all in and taking a break...
Note the drastic colour change - not a change in sedimentary strata - but the old water level for Lake Mead behind the dam. Quite worrying...
Amazing rock formations at the Valley of Fire state park.
Thank-you strange desert man for taking our picture...
(Actually a self-timer pic)
Now there are some awesome sedimentary layers!
Chocolate french-toast brioche with banana custard, rasberries and amaretto maple syrup.

What Alice would have enjoyed the most - the fountains!!
Our little Alice was lucky enough to stay with her grandparents while mum and dad were off gallivanting in the desert. It's difficult to say who had the most fun... Alice or Gran and Grandad. Well, we don't have much proof of how ecstatic Gran and Grandad were to have Alice stay for them for a few days, but here are some pictures of Alice enjoying herself. (And if you want to imagine what Gran and Grandad look like after their wonderful holiday - picture two tired and happy people crashed out on the couch!)
Bree pushing Alice on the swing.
Where do you want to go Auntie Katherine?

Now I'm no expert, but as any conscientious parent can tell you (as well as anyone who's ever watched Law and Order - SVU), I sure wanted to know what this meant.
Imagine my delight this evening, when I finally deciphered that what she is saying is "Pousse pas". Obviously something she picked up at daycare.
Out of the mouths of babes...
Here is a shot of Alice with Auntie Katherine, showing off the new wardrobe. To be filled with lots of pretty dresses and fuzzy pj's.
A big thank-you to Grandad for helping Lucy put it together.
