Flew into bright sunny Vegas on Friday 29th, picked up our convertible mustang and headed off in search of our condo. Turns out it was a 10 min drive (not walk) from the Strip which in the end turned out to be quite a blessing as was lovely to come home and chill by the pool with just the 7 of us.... not 1,000,007 as would have been the case if staying on the Strip.

So after everyone had flown in and gathered at the condo we chilled by the pool, had a BBQ, drank some nice cold beer and generally just got into the swing of things.

Myself, Oliver and Bree were up at 6am the next day as we had a helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and Lake Meade booked for 7. By the time we got to the Canyon (about 8am) it was already well above 35 so we were very glad to have chosen the early one and also to be fed champagne and pastries. Lovely start to the day.

Grand Canyon was amazing. Helicopter went for about 45 min to the Canyon followed by another half hr flight into the dessert to refuel and a final half hr or so back to the Strip. Well worth it and just an absolutely amazing view.

We then spent Sat and Sun wondering the casinos,   trying to get as many free drinks as possible and watching the boys lose some money on the blackjack tables.

Monday morning we hit the road and our trip to LA began....
