Vegas recap

Vegas was lots of fun, sunny and warm (well warmer than it is in Seattle). Didn't win any yarn money, very sad. Other than that it was a very fun weekend! I loved seeing Amy and Beau again and finally meeting their kids, Nathan, 3yrs. and Megan, 9 mos. It was fun just to hang out with them!

On Saturday night we took in the the Excalibur show - Tournament of Knights. Amy thought it would entertain Nathan. According to him, it was a hit! He laughed, cheered clapped, worried about the knights when they fell off their horses....it was fun watching him enjoy the show. As for the adults, it was mildly entertaining and pretty cheesy. The men all had the medieval hair style of long hair and some walked about in their leather pants and nothing else. Amy and I wondering if this show was a stepping stone to the other Excalibur show - The Thunder from Down Under.
The meal they served was similar to the food back then (if they had tomato soup that tasted exactly like Campbell's) but they didn't have silverware. Apparently that's part of the experience. While that thrilled all of the children in the audience, I have issues with that. The meal was soup that you drank from your bowl, a roll, potato wedges and thing of steamed broccoli and a little roasted baby chicken. Now I have to say I have serious issue with an entire being of former animal on my plate. Hence the reason I don't eat crab (or most seafood). They set it down in front of me with a thud and I just looked at it. Matt leaned over, half chuckling to himself and said, "Uh, are you going to eat that?" I figured what the hell and decided to be a good sport. It was all right but could only make it through about less than a quarter of the chicken. The roll was very tasty.

I'm glad you had a good time in Vegas. Sorry to hear you didn't win any yarn money, but I don't think that is going to stop you from buying more.

Yay Vegas! How cool that you were able to hang with Amy and the fam while you were there! We also have enjoyed a visit to Excalibur - cheesy but fun (though, one viewing of this extravaganza is enough for me)!

Looks like fun!!!! I am so needing a break from the cold and snow!!!! Glad you had fun and I can't say I am surprised you did not win any money - the odds were against you as you know.
