Spending Time with Family

This summer my parents decided to drive cross-country to see us.  My Mom said, You can’t see the sights on a plane.  Early on July 3rd, my parents and two nephews headed Southwest.  They arrived in Arizona on July 6th – 4 days.  I couldn’t believe they made the drive in only 4 days.  On their first weekend here, July 9th-11th, we went up to Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon.

Then we drove back into the Valley.  On Monday, my Mom came over to my house to make up salads for a family bbq on Tuesday.  One of my uncles drove over from San Francisco, and we had a small family reunion on Tuesday.

My mom, her younger brother, my dad, my aunt, my mom’s older brother.

Then this past weekend, July 16-18th, we drove up to Vegas with my parents and nephews.  We hung out at Circus Circus Adventuredome Friday night.  I thought that was where they filmed the Percy Jackson Vegas segment, but my girls said it didn’t look the same.  Just to be safe, we weren’t going to take any free flowers.  Then Saturday morning, we had breakfast with my parents and then said goodbye.  They were headed to Salt Lake City to complete the second leg of their journey – homeward bound.  Saturday night, we met up with one of my hubby’s cousins, who is currently working in Las Vegas.  We went over to Treasure Island to see the Pirate show.

Afterwards we headed back to our hotel.  The girls and I went up to bed, and my hubby hung out with his cousin in the casino.  He didn’t win big, but my twin is still pestering me for her share. 😉  And that was our whirlwind two weeks of family time this summer.
