But first, they experienced Vegas. They had a time share and spent a few days in the city before we spent a few days on the lake. Sean and I joined up with them for one day. Sean hadn't really done the strip so he didn't know what to expect. He was surprised at how much there was to do. We walked along the canals at the Venetian, watched the fountain show at the Bellagio and explored the atrium inside the Bellagio. A trip to Vegas wouldn't be complete without visiting the Welcome to Las Vegas sign. And of course we went swimming at the hotel pool.
We spent two days enjoying Lake Mead. The first day was a little overcast but that helped keep the temperatures down. All the kids tried the knee board even the four year old. I was so impressed with how they were not scared even with the teasings from my brother-in-law about sharks in the water. I even got out on the kneeboard. Sean did both wake boarding and wake skating and we spent plenty of time in the water. Probably the most enjoyed activity was the innertube!
