Pat's scrapbook continued

 Every 2 years, my employer takes all of his employees on a Retreat.  We have visited Bend Oregon, Victoria Canada and this past September we went to Las Vegas.  We arrived on Thursday afternoon, and we returned to the Pacific Northwest on Sunday.  We had a great time, the weather was very hot, so everyone (almost everyone) enjoyed the heat, we stayed at the Monte Carlo and they had a great pool area where many of my co-workers hung out. I made these pages to highlight the various sites in Las Vegas,  M&M World was right accross the street from our hotel, Vegas Showgirls the ultimate icon of Vegas, the Humpty Dumpty was at the Venetian.  My husband and I were able to see a show, the Blue Man Group and that was an awesome evening.  The tortise sculpture was at the airport, "The New York Skyline" is the outside of New York, New York which was next door to the Monte Carlo,  the Eifle tower marked the Paris Casino/Hotel, which had lovely bathroom sinks, they were beautifully decorated with flowers and such.  One of the evenings, we took the city bus to the downtown area and the neon signed were beautiful, very much what I think of when I think Las Vegas. 

A nice place to visit, however I am glad that we no longer live in an area that gets so hot, plus the people were EVERYWHERE, the cars were crazy.   People standing on the corners flipping cards, like baseball cards, except these are advertising the services of Ladies in various degrees of undress.  People take them, see what they are then drop them to the ground, they are just everywhere. 

It was good to get home.

  1. Great layout I like the focal points and just the one photo of Pat and Larry rest on points of interest. Good colors also.
