Vacation - Day Two

This is going to be a brief post as Zack and I are going to be heading out the door for our second day of adventures here in Las Vegas. Our plans for the day are to go to Circus-Circus, the Stratosphere and New York., New York and explore all the fun, kid related activities that they have at those casinos. I will be glad tomorrow morning to head for the Grand Canyon and peace and serenitity of the nature. Las Vegas is a very fun place, but it is very different being here with a child as opposed to being here with just your friends. Yesterday evening was very fun. We had dinner at a "traditional" Las Vegas buffet. We didn't do any fancy expensive restaurant as that would have been totally lost on Zack. So we went for quantity and variety versus quality. The buffet we went to was at Harrah's casino and was called Flavors. After the buffet we headed over to Treasure Island for the Cirque du Soleil show "Mystere". I have seen a lot of Cirque du Soleil shows over the years, but this is definitely one of my favorites. Every time I see this show, or for that matter any Cirque du Soleil show I sit there in awe of the beauty of the human body. It is so amazing what these people can do. They are amazing artists and what they can do with their bodies is unbelievable. I can only wonder how much training and work they must do to get to that level of mastery over their balance, their body movements and their strength. It is truly unbelievable! We got back to our hotel room by 9:30PM and we were both sound asleep by 10:45PM as we were exhausted from our early morning flight yesterday. Today we have been out for breakfast and are now just getting ready to get out and about. In one of the unpleasant facts of life - Zack is a tab bit - how do I say this politely? I'll just say it - constipated. So he is currently sitting on the potty trying to go while I write this. So as soon as he is done we are walking out the door. I talked to Nancy and she is doing fine. (I sometimes should realize that not everyone knows who is whom in my life so I should annote my postings sometime. Nancy is my late wife's mom who lives with Zack and me.) Lex (our 5 year old chocolate lab) is annoying the crap out of her, but otherwise she is doing well.

I'll definitely post more pictures later today!

Til later - thanks and peace to all!
