Las Vegas

After Park City, we spent a night in Springville and then headed down to St. George.  The first thing we did in St. George was head to Las Vegas to meet my mom's sister, Sharon, and her husband, Verl.  They are part of our Minnesota People, and we were excited to see them.  Sharon and Verl, along with 300,000 other people were in town for the Nascar race, so it was a bit crowded.  That did not stop us from enjoying the sightseeing though.

We started out at the Flamingo hotel, where Verl treated us to a very delicious buffet lunch.  We all ate until we were sick, and then we headed to the dessert bar =)  Amos even managed to get his hands on some cotton candy, which then managed to get itself on his hands.

 Amos had his first ever public timeout during lunch.  He was so mad at me.  (Sharon took this picture, I was busy being stern).


After lunch we checked out the flamingos and the beautiful garden courtyard.


Best story: Maggie darted out in front of a stranger, and he thought she was a wild flamingo!  I can see the resemblance.

My mom and Sharon called their sister, Gin, on the phone to make sure she knew they were thinking of her:

Amos LOVED Verl on our trip to Minnesota, and now Maggie does too:


We were so glad to get to see Sharon and Verl and we hope we get to see them again soon (along with the rest of our Minnesota People).
