vegas trip

My family decided we should all go to Vegas this past weekend and so we did. My grandparents haven’t been there in years and it was time we dragged them out of the house. Unsurprisingly, having my grandpa in my car for five hours wasn’t all that fun. I know i’ve already complain about him in previous blog entries, but here’s some more! He’s hot-headed, loud, controlling, stubborn, and impatient; in other words, he’s old. I can’t blame him for being the way he is because senility obviously comes with age, but at that very moment he’s flinging all types of shenanigans at me, it’s kind of hard not to resent him. People who know me well know I don’t like driving to or around places I’m not familiar with. I don’t know why, I just don’t like the feeling. So, driving in Vegas wasn’t exactly my cup of tea either, and with my grandpa in the back telling me where to go or how to drive seemed to make the situation much worse. Another complaint is that my family has the tendency to rush. “We have to hurry! They’re waiting!” or “It’s going to be a long wait at the buffet! Hurry up!” I thought this was called a vacation? Since when does a vacation have a “hurry your ass up” button?

Now that I’m done complaining…The good parts of this entire weekends was the buffet at Orleans, Riley’s neverending cyclone of energy, and shopping. We also tried the buffet at Wynn for the first time and I honestly didn’t enjoy the food as much as I enjoyed Orleans’. I guess my family just doesn’t have the taste for the high end, especially when it comes to fancy food.

Overall, this trip was more little bit more stressful than fun (obviously). I was profusely sweating on the drive home from Vegas because again, driving at night with strong winds make me nervous. It also made me nervous that I was responsible for getting my six family members home safely. My dad offered to drive the next half home after our stop at Barstow, so I gladly forfeited the van keys.

Franco has already promised that he’ll to take me to Vegas in September (when hotel rates are cheaper) for two nights. I definitely can’t wait for that 🙂
