We had a really quick trip. We left around 12 noon on Friday and got to Las Vegas around 4:30 pm. We gambled a little bit then went to get some chicken from Popeyes and took it back to our room. Saturday around 12 noon we went to meet my husband's daughter. We were following them to the Spring Preserve. Of course they weren't ready yet. So we left and got coffee then came back. We made it to the preserve around 1:30 pm. As usual when there are a lot of people, we did a lot of standing around. We went to the Butterfly Exhibit and the Adventure Exhibit. Afterwards we went to the front of the Preserve and had pizza, cupcakes, and fruit. Then we went back to his daughter's, only because we had to carry some of the stuff. After the party, my husband and I went downtown to gamble a little more, than we got a meal from Cane's Chicken, to share, and took it back to our hotel. Cane's chicken is not good when it's cold. We were supposed to get up early this morning to get back because I had to sing with my church. I was up early. I let my husband sleep a little while longer. We ended up leaving at 9 am, but my husband drove straight through. We usually stop for a restroom break, to eat, or change drivers. But he said he needed to continue driving because we are supposed to be driving to Texas early Thursday morning and he will have to do 5 hour stints. One of my husband's cousins died a few days ago. We just saw him in June. He wasn't doing to good then but we were hoping to see him next year on our way to the family reunion. The services are Friday and Saturday. So we are leaving early Thursday, around 1 am and hope to be back by Sunday. My husband wants to take just Thursday and Friday off work, but I think we will need Monday too. It's a 24 hour drive.
