My Parents Go To Las Vegas to Visit My In-Laws
My parents have just returned from a trip to Las Vegas to visit Duncan's parents, Sybil and Joel. They spent a week in Las Vegas and had a wonderful time.
Duncan's parents have lived in Las Vegas for quite awhile and know it very well. They were great hosts and it was so nice for my parents to travel to a city where they know someone.
Mom and Dad stayed in a timeshare condo right off Las Vegas Blvd. or The Strip as it is known. They spent two days sightseeing using a hop on hop off double decker bus to get around. They saw all the major hotels this way. It was like taking a trip around the world since there are so many theme hotels like The Venetian, Paris, Luxor and New York, New York. They also saw 3 wonderful shows: Bette Midler (by themselves) and Jersey Boys and La Reve with Sybil and Joel.
They arrived on a Saturday and met Duncan's parents the next night for dinner and a wonderful Cirque du Soleil water show at The Wynn. The show was amazing and the set with its everchanging water levels for the performers, incredible!
The next outing that the parents planned together was to have dinner and see Jersey Boys. Mom had heard that it was wonderful and that turned out to be true. It had a great story and great music. All four parents really enjoyed seeing that musical and highly recommend it.
On their final evening in Las Vegas, they were invited for dinner at Joel and Sybil's home and they were entertained royally. They have a lovely home and backyard and they prepared a fabulous dinner. Mom and Dad also got to meet Monty and Miss Harley Nicole, who both are adorable. KoKo, the parrot was fun to meet also.
They flew home the next day and shared all their Las Vegas stories and pictures with me. I only wish that I could have joined them on this trip but I am so happy that they had such a nice visit. It was a wonderful place to visit and made even more wonderful by the hospitality shown to them by my in-laws.
How fun!! I'm sure it would have been even better if you got to go and saw Duncan! :) Hope your parents had the greatest trip!
It sounds like you had a wooftastic time!
How was the Bette Midler show? Shes taken over from Celine Dion right? Or is that the Osmonds that have taken over from Celine Dion?
Ooooh what a wonderful trip Bailey! How exciting for the pawrents! I'm sure they missed you though!
envious, envious, envious!!
The parents had a great time. Bette Midler, Cher and Elton John take turns at The Coliseum where Celine Dion used to sing. She may come back though. Bette Midler gave a great show. The Osmonds are across the street at The Flamingo. I stayed at a sitter while the parents were gone and they are happy to be home with me again.
Sounds like your Parents had a great visit ! I'm sure they brought you home a souvenir! :)
