Husband and I spent Labor Day weekend in Vegas with his family. Our nephew had his second birthday party on Saturday, which was quite the success. We got him some Thomas The Tank Engine mega-bloks, which were a great choice seeing as he spent quite a bit of the day with his new "choo-choo" firmly in hand. As much as Thomas was a hit, I think Buzz Lightyear might have stolen the show - an interactive and intergalactic space ranger. Not sure who was more fascinated by it, the toddler or my husband.
Red Rock Canyon. Of course, we realized as we were leaving that neither of us had packed anything remotely close to hiking shoes. Armed with flip flops, we decided to do the 13-mile scenic drive through the canyon, stopping at various vantage points for photos. There are tons of hiking trails and places to climb around the rocks so we are definitely planning to go back sometime when our feet are better prepared. For now, here's a handful of shots taken from the various stops we made in the car.
