Back in October, when I went to Las Vegas for our Anniversary, Kurt and I went to a timeshare thing and got the chance to check out one of their properties for 6 nights in Sedona, Arizona. I decided that we should take a road trip going there. We left our house on Tuesday, July 9 and returned before midnight on July 19, 2013. We drove from Los Angeles to Las Vegas the first day and stayed in Las Vegas 2 nights. We had our daughter Natalie, age 15 and her boyfriend Ben, almost 17. He turned 17 when we were in Sedona(I'll talk about that in a future post).

I had always wanted to stay at the Flamingo Hotel, so I got my wish.
The picture below shows the view from our room . Among the trees, near the far building, was the Flamingo Garden. The Flamingo Gardens and Pools were amazing. I especially loved the grotto behind the waterfalls. Even though the water was fast I loved having it hit my head. I know it sounds weird, but it helped my headaches.
We did a lot of driving around and trying to find cheaper places to eat off the strip. We had an amazing Oriental Buffet at a restaurant on Flamingo Road, going North and a late lunch at the Seven casino. While we were in L.V. we visited the Pawn shop where "Pawn Stars" is filmed. The clown picture went for over 7 grand and I didn't catch the price for the amazing grand piano.
