Enjoying Life - Little Rudy Style

Rudy's favorite activity at our house is dancing to the Damce Party Wii games!  He is very good and does have his favorites!  This one is done to the song, " Moves like Jagger!"  Here is a warning though, you will have to dance too!

Heather and Sharon Creating Centerpieces

For Heather's wedding reception, she came up with the idea of using succulents in her center pieces. And we were so lucky to have Sharon come over to help us.  She is a great friend and we were able to put these together in a couple of hours!  They were so beautiful on the tables!

Baby it's cold outside, page 1

So, I always see great layouts centered around snow and think "rats, I don't have any snow pictures." Well, thanks to Brenna and the snowy weather of North Carolina, I have finally scrapbook end my grandchildren in snowy weather!  I will be looking for another photo to add to this page, but I love this picture Brenna took.  This is Isabel and Rudy exploring the snow in their backyard!  I am thinking of printing this in black and white.

Great Friends

Wedding receptions bring friends and family together.  And Heather and Alex's reception had such a wonderful group in attendance!  Here are a few of Alex's good friends.  I will have to let him add their names to the page when I have finished their book.

Hula at the Reception

My favorite moment of the evening of Heather and Alex's reception was when the Makuas performed to my all time favorite song, "Maunaleo" by Keali'i Reichel!  It is such a beautiful song and these women are beautiful dancers!  I also loved seeing my granddaughters dance with them!  Mahalo!

Historical Neon Lights

Here are just a few more examples of some Las Vegas historical neon lights!  I wish they were all lit now, I do love the lights of Las Vegas!

Neon Lights!

Just a sample of some of the recognizable signs that are now resting in the Boneyard.  I am so glad that the history of Las Vegas has been preserved here!  If you haven't been here before, you need to go!

HADR Boneyard

Here we are waiting for the tour to begin!   So much more to do in Las Vegas instead of gambling (though that is great fun too!).  Wait until tomorrow !  More neon lights to come!

Boneyard Pics

Walking around the Boneyard, I took many photos.  I thought the letters of our first names would be a cute idea!  These were taken from the Frontier, the Sahara, the Horseshoe and the Dunes Casinos.

Michael at Medieval Times - 5 years old

Our first visit to Medieval Times was to celebrate Michael's birthday.   It was January 1988!  Such a handsome little guy.  In our family, we celebrate the entire month.  We do know that Roy and Brenna were at another activity that night.  It was just me, Michael and Heather at this party.  I think Michael recently went back with his family, I will have to see if he had his picture taken with the King.

Carlos n Charlie - Cancun

It isn't called Party Center because it is a quiet place!  We stopped in for some Happy Hour refreshments and some fun ,  look at the size of the beers and the cucaracha lol!  The servers at this place know how to create some laughs.  Our vacation is winding down and it will be on to new adventures with friends and family.

Señor Frog's - Cancun

We headed into the center of town to enjoy some refreshments and do a little shopping.  The bus ride is almost as much fun as our photo session.   We enjoyed the walk, even when we saw the crocodile warning sign.  We looked and didn't see any.  The closest we got was the frog in this picture.

Margaritaville in Cancun

Well, here is a good story; Ron and Sharon have arrived in Cancun and it is time for some dinner.  We hop on the bus and head over to Margaritaville for some burgers and drinks.  Can you imagine our surprise when we find out that no liquor is being served because it is Election Day!  Well, we made the most of it and enjoyed some tasty, cold water!  We stayed long enough to finish our meal and headed back to the hotel (where they could sell liquor).  We did love our balloon hats and wore them back!

Enjoying the View

The morning we had our Cuban coffee, this was the view from the deck.  Peaceful in the morning.  We did see boats coming and docking here to get their goods from the liquor store.  We watched an iguana burst out of the bushes to stun his prey.  But most of all, we enjoyed each other's company!

Fun in Cancun continues

This is the companion page to yesterday's posting.  Here we are showing Ron and Sharon enjoying the cold beer.  But I believe that wasn't Sharon's drink of choice but we let her pose with the glass.  Great times in Cancun!
