Day 63

Well, this was the LAST DAY of our cross country trip!

Whew! Can’t believe it’s over. But so glad to be home!

We headed to the Vegas strip. What a blessing to have found free parking at Mandalay Bay. Maybe because it was Sunday.

We got a mid morning snack. 😂

The girls don’t like opera. And it was really hard to throw this away.

The Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay is really cool! So glad we got tickets ahead of time because they were sold out by the time they opened at 10:00 am.

Some really big catfish

We walked the strip the rest of the afternoon.

Did a few history lessons based on the different themes of the casinos in the city. This one led us to ancient Egypt to discuss pyramids, pharaohs, mummies, and the Sphinx.

The New York New York with the Statue of Liberty fueled our discussion of its symbol of freedom for our walk on this block.

Had lunch in New York New York

And visited the Hershey’s shop.

Look at this Twizzlers statue of lady liberty!

Nina took a selfie with a Kiss

There is a really cool mosaic sidewalk all the The Park.

We spent a while in the Coca Cola shop.

And did a thorough tasting of all the international flavors.

The Ballagio fountain. We saw the water show driving through one day but missed it at might with the lights, timing didn’t work out all week.

Nina really likes gelato

Delighted to see Chik-fil-a thriving in downtown Los Vegas. Not sure why I was surprised by that. That opened up some interesting discussion. 😊

We spend ridiculous amounts of time in line and with personal shopping guides at some of the most expensive shops in the world. Came out with some really nice fragrance samples on a card.

The girls were limo spying all day. They like the Hummer limo the best.

We had a late night plane flight. Midnight.

Said bye bye to Vegas

Bye bye to the city lights.

Settled down for an over night flight.

Nina was out before the city lights were out of view.

Bye bye to our adventure across the west.

Home home home, back to North Carolina and our family and friends we love and have missed.

We have come to the end of our 63 day adventure. Back to the home we love. It’s been amazing. Thanks for going with us on this journey. Those that followed us every day, God bless you, and I hope you enjoyed the adventure as much as we did.
