Vegas, Baby!

We can now fly directly from home to Las Vegas! Even though we left at 7:45 am, with the time change it wasn't even 9:00 am when we arrived in Vegas.


It was such a fun place to walk around and people watch.




Piggy is our official mascot on our travels and we take pictures to document her adventures. 




The Statue of Liberty made out of Jelly Beans!



We rode the High Roller to get the best views of the city.









The Venetian was so neat because it made it seem like were were outside instead of inside.




The Bellagio is where the famous fountains are and also has there amazing gardens throughout the entire place.

Birthday Weekend!

This past weekend was Michael's birthday and we had a blast doing lots of fun family activities.

We took advantage of our local Rails to Trials system and went on a beautiful bike ride. 





There was a closed down train tunnel at one end. We could have carried our bikes around it, but with the trailer that would have been a difficult feat!




Skinny kids could slip through the bars!


That evening Michael rode the Amtrak train from Latrobe to Greensburg for fun.
