Spring Break

What a Vacation...
We saw more on this vacation then we ever imagined.
Flying into LA to rent a car and drive to Las Vegas for a few days.
Airline benefits in March, during spring break...a little hard to get places!
After arriving in Las Vegas we drove to the Grand Canyon. WOW! What a beautiful site. The only thing that worried me was the fact that there were no guard rails. Can you believe it? My vertigo and watching my family walk up to the edge was enough to make me crazy! It was such a beautiful site though. We had such a wonderful day there.

After a day at the Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam on the way, we headed back to Las Vegas.
The next day we spent touring the strip. Ceasars Palace mall and the Bellagio Fountains and the favorite stop the M&M's store :-)

Then we drove back to LA to return the rental car, what a beautiful drive. We flew to
San Francisco and spent a day and a half there. Below is a picture of Lombard Street (the crookedest street). I finally got to see San Fran. It has been a long time coming. We spent the majority of our time at Fisherman's Wharf. The food was awesome and we had a lot of fun on trolleys and walking up some really steep streets! I will have to go back some day and wander through some other neighborhoods, anyone interested?

The girls were so glad to see green grass they just had to lay in it! We were so sick of SNOW!

After that it was back to snowy, slushy Chicago. We spent a little time in San Francisco airport trying to get out, but finally did. I wanted to include this beautiful picture Kelsey took at a butterfly garden at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. What a shot!

We were happy to get back home and not have to eat out and ride public transportation anymore. I was thrilled to have a beautiful weekend this week and look forward to no more snow. The tulips are starting to come up, next our very own butterflies!
