Vacation photos, Part I

Just thought I'd share some photos from my vacation since I have not had time to create anything just yet. You know the drill from returning home from vacation - unpacking, washing clothes, putting everything back into place, etc...I did all of that the first day that I returned, but now, I'm starting to feel a little runned down. Aaagghh! I hate being sick!! Okay, I'm just working on this post to share at midnight (preposting) and then off to bed.
Here's a lovely photo of what we woke up to the first day in Vegas. It was raining and cloudy and the temp was a chilly 48 degrees! Brrrrrrrr! Good thing my sister tracked the weather before we left, so we were prepared for some cold. To tell you the truth, I didn't think it was going to be THAT cold!We ventured to the Premium Outlet since it's an outdoor mall, it would be torture to shop in the Vegas heat so we opted to shop in the cold! We actually went back the next day to finish off the mall...two days! hehe...Hey Cheryl! My boots came in handy! I wore them to death!
My sis posing in front of the Coach store...we shopped well there! LOL!
I haven't been to Vegas since 2003, I think. It was for a SU convention and we stayed at the Strip, so staying downtown was new for me. After dinner one night, we walked around. It was amazing to see this artist painting...he paints with spray paints. It is just amazing to watch!
My sister and BIL loved the paintings so much, they bought two! Here's the one my sister chose. It's really beautiful IRL.
Took this photo in front of the Venetian on the day I met Rita. What a beautiful day!
We walked around and some nice person offered to take our photo in front of the ship at Treasure Island.
I will have some fun photos to share tomorrow on our adventure to the Viva Las VegasStamps store. It was unbelievable!! Thanks for stopping in today! Time for me to rest so I can feel better.
