On Saturday I touched up a few holes and then we primed the top to cover over any residual border paper glue. We let it dry while we went to the Wilson's BBQ to meet new their baby, Danny. On Sunday we got up and got to work painting! The color Jen chose came out beautiful! It is a slight shade of lavender. What else would we put in "the princess room"?

I've been really busy lately. The geckos are running rampant in the yard. It's a hard job to keep their population in check. But it's fun to play with them. For some reason Mommy & Daddy yell at me when I bring them a gecko as a present.
This morning was really exciting. There was a squirrel on the food thing that the birds come to. But I scared him away.
I pulled a good one on Azriel the other day. She was sitting on Mommy's lap on the couch. I walked underneath them & tapped Az on her butt. Mommy screamed & Az hissed and ran away. It was a great day.
Blogging is a lot of work. I have to go take a nap in my cat tree. Meow!!!

We were excited to have 9 people from Florida, along with a friend living in VA, and 6 others living in Vegas come out and celebrate with us! All the out-of-towners stayed at the Platinum Resort & Spa behind Ballys. We got two 1000+ sqft suites--one for the bachelor party and one for the bachelorette. It was really nice!
On Friday night we went out to see the hilarious musical Spamalot at the Wynn. The Vegas locals scored us great half-price tickets to the closing weekend. It was a hilarious show!! Afterwards we hug out at a pub watching college kids playing beer pong (also hilarious).
Saturday morning the girls went to the Spa while the guys bummed at the pool. We met back up for lunch at the Cheesecake factory in the Forum Shops (Ceasar's Palace). Then we headed back to get ready for our Red Carpet VIP evening!
We started the night with 'bier und brauts' at the Hofbrauhaus Bavarian Restaurant. A live band featuring accordions and drums filled the great hall as we ate and drank. Everyone enjoyed the 1-Liter beer mugs! The restaurant made dinner an event unto itself.
We split up after that so that the guys could enjoy Sapphire, the worlds largest gentlemen's club, while the girls went to see the Australian male review, The Thunder From Down Under. We all had a very good time. (Sorry, no pictures!)
For the grand finale, the two parties merged into one at the Ghost Bar at the Palms. The limos dropped us off and we walked past the line to our VIP table, complete with bottle service. The table was next to the doorway to the amazing balcony with a view of the Vegas strip--and a floor window looking straight down! We had a great time partying into the early morning hours. Some partied harder than others...
Overall we had a fantastic time and loved this once-in-a-lifetime extravagent adventure. Thanks to everyone that came out with us in Las Vegas to make this a great time for Paul & Susie!

First, I chase Jack around the backyard--one of his favorite outdoor games.
Next, Jen tests out a solar powered "car" she made to test out an educational kit for an upcoming Society of Women Engineers event.
