I have been a member of a diaper sewing board since before I was even pregnant with Alyssa. It is a group of women who have become such a large part of our lives. People who love our family even with many of them having never ‘actually’ met us. It is quite an awesome community and I am grateful it is a part of our lives. That being said, I have been quite fortunate to meet quite a few of the women on the board either through traveling or through them coming to Vegas. One of the women I have met is Samantha. She is actually the designer of many of the patterns that I sew to sell from and her whole family rocks! LOL! No, I am not trying to butter her up 😉 . I was out there at the end of last year and enjoyed every minute of it!
At any rate, Sam, her husband, and their two kids made a stop in Vegas on their way to California. Neil, Alyssa and I went down last night for dinner with the family and then Alyssa and I headed back today to go to the Shark Reef with Sam and her family. Alyssa loved the fish and she was incredibly smitten by the stingrays. I do believe if I wasn’t holding her that she would have been in the pond swimming with them! HA!
Afterwards, Tom (Sam’s husband) managed to get us into the restaurant inside the Mandalay Bay to walk around. They have an indoor encased waterfall and swans out on the terrace. It was truly amazing. Alyssa especially loved the waterfall. She kept touching the glass amazed that it looked like water…but it wasn’t LOL because the water was on the other side of the glass.
We had a great morning and it was neat to feel like a tourist for a few 😉
