On Saturday, we dropped Shadow off at Idlewire and went and ate dinner at Texas Roadhouse. We watched the movie, I Don't Know How She Does It.
On Sunday, we drove to Vegas. We ate lunch in Cedar City. I listened to my iPod and read some magazines. We got to Vegas at 3:30 in the afternoon. We took a nap after checking into our condo at the Desert Rose Resort. The condo has one bedroom, a kitchen, a balcony, and a very comfortable L shaped couch, which i slept on. We went and ate dinner at the Pizzeria at Circus Circus. We watched a silk artist do acrobatics while walking around the midway. We drove up and down the strip and saw the pawn shop from Pawn Stars, the Heart Attack Grill, and the Chapel of the Bells where Kelly Ripa got married to Mark Consuelos.
On Monday, we ate breakfast at the hotel. Then we went to the Mirage. We went into the Kardashian Khaos store and got some fruit and yogurt at Blizz. I bought myself and Mom, A Beatles Love shirt. Then we went to the Meadows Mall and passed a Zombie Apocalypse Survival Store. Mom bought some shirts at JCPenney. She bought two figurine sets (The Avengers and Brave) and 4 plush dolls (Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story, Woody from Toy Story, Jessie from Toy Story, and Zazu from the Lion King) from the Disney Store. We ate lunch at Del Taco. While Mom took a nap, I finished reading the book, Jane by April Lindner, a retelling of Jane Eyre. Dad went to the Pawn Stars pawn shop, but there was a line around the block, so he couldn't get in. I then finished reading the book, Night Circus by Elin Morgenstern. We went to the Premium Outlets South and then back to our room, to pick up our show tickets. We went and saw Dancing with the Stars Live! At the Tropicana. The show features Carson Kressley, Dmitri Martin, Joey Fatone, Kyle Massey, Lacey Schwimmer, Sabrina Bryan, and Tia Carrere. It was an 80 minute show which featured clips from the real show, live dancing, magic, and comedy. Afterwards we went back to the hotel and the elevator wasn't working so we had to take the stairs to the second floor.
On Tuesday, we ate breakfast at the hotel. I finished reading Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. We drove out to Blue Diamond to go to Kohl's and Target. I bought the soundtrack to Smash and Dad bought mom an ankle brace because she forgot hers. Mom bought a copper ring at Kohl's. Then we drove to the City Center for the first time and went into the Aria. We got some raspberry, pistachio, and butter pecan gelato at the Cup at the Crystals shopping center. We walked back to the car next to their wall that is a waterfall. After our nap, we went and ate dinner at the Rio Hotel's Carnival World Buffet. This is the biggest buffet I have gone to. They have 10 food stations from around the world, with every kind of food you could ever want, such as Mexican, Sushi, Seafood, Barbecue, Italian, Chinese, and American. They also have a huge dessert bar, which features gelato, pies, cookies, and cheesecake. Mom saw the guy at the table next to us pocket the tip for the waiter left by the other guy he was with, and then sat down to play off Mom seeing him do it. We drove back to the hotel to get Mom's medication. Then we went to the Premium Outlets North and I bought mom 3 plush dolls (Meeko from Pocahontas, Owl from Winnie the Pooh, One of the Siamese cats from Lady and the Tramp) from the Disney Outlet. We went back to the hotel and watched Glee. I watched the movie, Larry Crowne, before going to sleep.
On Wednesday, we checked out of our hotel and drove back to Utah. We stopped in St. George, had lunch at Dairy Queen in Beaver, and stopped in Nephi. I read the book, MIss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs while were driving. We picked up Shadow from Idlewire Boarding in Ogden. Then we drove home to Syracuse.
