Helping Out in Las Vegas

I feel as though we have been helping out family fairly often lately, for pretty big things too. One of these times was the second weekend in October we went to Las Vegas to help out Aunt Diane move from there to my hometown of Englewood, CO (suburb of Denver) to be closer to my parents and so we'll see her now much more often. We were happy to do it to, though it was a lot of work to finish packing up the apartment and loading up the moving van. My Dad and his cousin Tom Tracey flew out to drive the moving van. Nathan's sister Karissa just started her career in Vegas as a therapist, so we got to see and stay with her. In all my years of visiting my aunt and uncle in Vegas, I had never been to the northern area, and I liked it! Karissa and I also had the best talk we've ever had, and I loved building up that relationship. Nathan also got me a massage at the QUA Baths & Spa at Caesar's Palace on Saturday morning. Awesome place, I give it a 5 star rating, and I'd definitely like to go back. We also got to do some shopping at H&M (only in a few places in the US, James got a great outfit!), and walk around the Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace. A big shout-out to Karissa for letting us stay with her! James had fun too, though during the walk around he was getting a little over-stimulated, and started shaking. A few too many bright lights for the babe. And traffic, oh man, it was a Saturday night, in Las Vegas, need I say more. We were so tired from packing up that we decided to leave on Monday morning instead of Sunday night. Overall a good trip, and now we'll see Aunt Diane when we go to Denver.

The Roman Baths at the spa, I could have stayed all day, but there was work to be done!

The only picture's we got while there was of James getting into the bath at Karissa's! He had fun in the ginormous bathtub
