Grant is on stage! The 2nd blury one from the left.

Vegas baby!

I'm enjoying a real bed and shower!!! We bought half price tickets to
go see a Penn and Teller (magicians) last night. Out of all the shows
I've seen here this is one of the best. They do magic and comedy. Best
of all they showed the audience how some of the tricks were done.

At the beginning they had everyone go on stage and sign a paper and
look at a box. Since our half price seats were in the balcony, we had
to go downstairs to do this. Realizing how much better this view was
then ours, I asked the seating attendant if we could move down if ppl
didn't show up. So after slipping him a $10, he moved us to the middle
of the front section! Awesome! Good thing bc for the final act of the
show they asked for volunteers and of course Grant got picked! I tried
to sneak a pic but the stage was real bright. Everyone was coming up
to him after the show asking about the trick. Besides that we have
gambled and layed by the pool. Vegas has been a blast so far.

Grand Canyon

Me at one of the 7 wonders of the world!

Grant at the Grand Canyon

Four Corners

Grand cayon, here we come!

Heading to the Grand Canyon we leave the beautiful mountains behind
and journey into the colorless desert. Grant found his wedding ring at
the campsite lost and found! We stopped at the Four Corners to take a
picture. All at once you can stand in Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and
Colorado! I bought some Indian jewelry and then we had lunch where u
could see huge bulls roaming the parking joke. I suppose
rules are different in Indian Reservations.

Yesterday we drove to see the cliff dwellings in Mesa Verde. Being as
adventurous as we are we signed up to take the more challenging tour.
We had to climb a 35ft vertical ladder, crawl thru a 12ft cave that
was 18 inches tall, and climb up a 60 ft mountain. We were feeling
prettybrave until we noticed there were several little kids on the
tour so it must not be that bad. Haha I got a lot of funny and cool
pics on my camera. I took one pic of a dwelling on my phone to upload.

Today was "white water rafting."aka going down the river similar to
the tenacity of the Comal in San Marcus, but we were wearing full life
jackets, water socks and in a giant blue raft with a guide. The little
kids tubing next to us probably thought we were crazy lol! This
journey lasted 4 hours. Even though it was less extreme than expected,
it was still a relaxing float and good chance to meet new ppl. Live
music and dinner with a drive thru the mountains ended the night.
