Not the Friday Flashback

Flynn said yesterday that mum was being lazy because she didn't do all her unpacking, so she said I had to post this photo to show why she didn't finish. I don't know what she is talking about. She doesn't realise just how tiring it is being locked up. We told her she can put up a few photos today and she said she will try and put the rest up somewhere else with a link to them when she has got more time.

This is the Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The Gondoliers come through the little tunnel from the outside and then they sing to their passengers. The Beans saw Phantom of the Opera there and said it was really good.

This is the Bellagio and there is a display of it's fountains every half hour.

They took two tours when they were in Las Vegas. One was of the Hoover Dam, and they went right down inside to see the generators.
This is Lake Mead which was formed from the Colorado River when the Hoover Dam was built.

They also went to Zion National Park which was spectacular.

This formation in Zion is called the Court of the Patriarchs.

After their stay in Las Vegas, they went to Los Angeles and then on a cruise to Hawaii. This is Kilauea on Hilo which is one of the world's most active volcanoes. It has been erupting since 1983 and you can see the lava glowing at night.

They also went to Honolulu and this is Hanauma Bay which is nearby.

Another island they went to was Maui, and this is a huge Banyan tree. They said they had a wonderful time even though they missed us.
Our Friday Flashback will be back next week.

  19. My goodness, your beans certainly did get around during their trip, didn't they? At least everywhere they went it was warm. It must have been the trip of a lifetime!

    Eric, you are just too funny napping on top of the suitcase. Ah, it serves them right for locking you up!

    ReplyDelete
  20. It sure looks like your beans had a wonderful time!! Eric, when you're done napping there, maybe you could help your mom empty that suitcase!

Thanks for telling about the ship too.. Hugs GJ xx

  23. Your bean's vacation looks amazing! We bet they are tired. It can be very fatiguing having fun and then ending the trip with a long plane ride home. We wouldn't be in a major rush to unpack even if there wasn't a handsome ginger boy on top of our case.
    We are so happy all of you are home again.

  24. Sounds like a wonderful trip, and we will look forward to seeing more pics of it.

    Hey, isn't that what we're supposed to do when they drag those box-like things out?? We always sleep on the ones here when they come out....and if we're really lucky, someone will leave one open and we can snuggle inside it. :)

  26. That looks like a very fabulous vacation your mom and dad had! And from the photos at least, it looks like it was great weather, too. I don't blame them for being a little tired after all that traveling.

  27. What a marvelous vacation, although it really seems like several vacations, doesn't it? Mom would love to Zion Nat'l Park and HI one day, but not so much Vegas because she has a much greater appreciation for things that are not man-made. Volcanos are askeery, but those banyon trees are incredible, aren't they?!

  28. Our Lady loves looking at the vacation pictures. We know your people had a fun time at those places, but you know what? They talked about you two more than the fun places! Bet you're getting lots of extra loving right now!

  29. We are glad you have your mum and dad back home. They are really nice, and talked about you all during the BBQ. Tavi and Camie say they give really good pets, and Tavi highly recommends their laps for naps. We wish we could have met you though. Enjoy having them home.

    Tavi, Cody, Camie, Miss Jade and Gracie

    PS - the pictures are beautiful.

    Flynn and Eric, looks like your Beans had a wonderful vacation. Our Dad has been to Las Vegas but not our Mom. She didn't want to go but after looking at your Bean's photos, she has changed her mind.

    Next year Mom and Dad are going to Hawaii for the first time. They will be celebrating their 10th anniversary then. We may just have to sneak inside Mom's luggage so we can have a vacation too!
