Although the summers are very hot, I’d say 9 months out of the year are pretty much perfect. I don’t even mind the cooler winter days. My child may never know what frost, dew or slush is, but we are only 40 minutes away from some pretty great sledding and skiing on Mt. Charleston. We feel like we can never run out of things to do. We are close to so many national parks and if we want to go to the ocean, we are only a 4-hour drive.
Kevin made a comment to me the other day after looking at all the “Pray for Vegas” pictures on Facebook. He said that the Las Vegas skyline describes Vegas perfectly. There is a little bit of every city in our skyline. A little of the New York skyline, a little bit of Paris, Rome, Cairo and more. Not many people are actually born and raised in Las Vegas. Most of the people living here are from all over the country and world, that’s why our skyline is so perfect for our city. Las Vegas is a little bit of everyone and so many people love this city. In the last 3 years, Las Vegas has become my home and no matter where life takes my family and me, Las Vegas will always have a special place in my heart.
Here are some pictures from just a few of our many family outing out and about in our town, Las Vegas.
|Our first night out on the strip when we first moved to Vegas|
|I took this picture 2 weeks ago when we were walking around the strip on Sunday after getting lunch.|
|2 months ago we went to the top of the Effie Tower.|
|A favorite family spot for us is always The Linq.|
|Last fall at the Bellagio. This is one of my favorite spots.|
|Eating Graham crackers on the High Roller last spring.|

Love all these photos! My heart is so heavy for what happened in Vegas! Sending your city all the best!
Thank you for your kind words Mary!
