Leaving Vegas

A couple of days in Vegas is more than enough, so after trying a local Diner for breakfast we started walking towards the car rental place.

We managed to score a car around noon rather than at 3pm that was the original plan. We just need to get out, and we did it in style…this tiny little car;

We also didn’t realize that Area 51 was on our way from Vegas to Beatty, where we had a motel booked for the flight. So I now have a nice little Facebook check-in there, how cool isn’t that?

I want to remember taking pictures where we stopped for coffee, but can’t find them on my phone…hmmm!

Beatty turned out to be an interesting place as well, we already knew that our Motel had an Alien outside, it also had a nice place with cold beer and a Swedish lady that spent the past 25 years or so in the US. That got us introduced to the locals, you know: the gun carrying kind…

It

was a wet eve that landed me in bed early, too tired to fool Mr Grumpy II into digging a hole in the ground.

Finally the helicopter

Wow, the blog have been too busy being on vacation that it was supposed to update. Lets see what can be done today. I left with the promise of the highlight of the trip, the planned helicopter tour.

Starting the day with brekkie of course, one of the things I miss about living in Sweden…this time we hit Denny’s rather than IHop.

Then we hit the pool, can’t stay in a hotel with two pools and not try both of them.

You can tell that some parts of my booty haven’t seen that much sun lately though, as I missed a spot with the sunblock.

After a basic taco lunch it was finally time, and I have to say, Helicopter over the Grand Canyon must be one of the coolest things I’ve done. And to all of those that worried about Mr Grumpy II, I wasn’t allowed to open the helicopter door during the trip so he’s still alive.

The

only thing that put a dent in the experience was not being able to rub it in daddy’s face. He would’ve been so jealous with the whole thing. And then, as we are riding back towards Boulder, one of the songs that I remember him always singing along to starts playing.

All those times we watched Good Morning Vietnam thogheter he would always start digging when What a wonderful world came on. And what can I say, sitting in the helicopter…it is a wonderful world indeed.

After returning back to our hotel, we headed up the tower attached to it in order to check out the views before a late night dinner at an Australian Steak House and a walk down the strip.
