Well, the vacation is over. :(
I returned to Logan (late) on Sunday night for my marketing class this week. I had a great time in Las Vegas with my family. We celebrated my grandpa’s (Chapman, on mom’s side) 80th birthday. On Saturday, we all went out to Boulder City to visit the Nevada State Railroad MuseumÃ‚ and ride the train. I wishÃ‚ I could give an endorsement, but can’t. I really like railroads, but this open air museum doesn’t have a lot to offer (yet). The cars that have been restored can’t be approached close up. Maybe in a few years…
Several of us went to the Hoover Dam afterward (after A&W – my favorite Boulder City treat!). Lake Mead is really low. We went back to my parent’s house after that and played games and had cake and ice cream. When I was little, we would watch old family movies and slideshows whenever we were at my gandparents’ house; we continued the tradition with some fun old pictures on my grandpa’s projector. We got together on Sunday for a BBQ and more games before I had to make the long drive back to Logan.
Unfortunately, Rach had to stay in Las Vegas for some doctor appointments, so she’ll be down there until Friday. I’m looking forward to Friday, as I’ll be able to meet her in St. George with our friends, Rob & Jaime Lea. In the mean time, it’s study, study, study. I love marketing!
