Great weekend with my sisters

I was just wondering if there's anyone out there who hasn't already seen these pictures on facebook?  I guess maybe Shilo.  Yes, Shilo, it's time to enter the world of facebook :-)

Anyway, the first weekend in April I met my sisters in Vegas for a few days of kid-free fun.  It was WONDERFUL!  I drove up on Thursday afternoon.  It was so nice driving alone, listening to movies on my laptop and drinking a nice big coke!  We stayed at The Orleans.  It's not on the strip, but it's a great place.  I will definitely stay there again.  It has a movie theater, bowling alley, 10 restaurants, pool, gym, and of course, a casino :-)  The room was big and the bathroom was very nice.  I know it's weird to mention that, but there's nothing worse than a gross bathroom to ruin your stay.

Yes, we spent a little time in the casino.  I didn't win anything, but I think Vicky went home
 with a nice chunk of change.  I didn't really enjoy this game....just needed  a picture for my Trekie.  Nancy and Vicky had never been to the Cheesecake Factory before so I, of course, had to take them there.  Yummy!  They loved it and we went back for some more before the weekend was over.
We went to the temple, watched movies, stayed up late, slept in late, visited M&M World and Coke World, ate junk, and laughed our butts off!  It was great.  Can't wait for next year!

Fun tradition. Your sisters hadn't ever been to the Cheesecak Factory. The sisters of Julie? How have they not been disowned?
I should start something like that with my seesters. I may have to go kicking and screaming into the Facebook world, but I doubt it.

Come on, Shilo! Facebook is the greatest!! I'll take you to the cheesecake factory if you join :-)

Sisters weekends are the greatest aren't they? Glad you posted the pictures since I don't do Facebook either.
