Today was one of those everyone do your own thing days.
From what I understand some people went shopping (again!), others went to see shows, some gambled...
I went to Henderson to visit my Aunt Mila. She is definitely one of my favorite aunts. She isn't a blood relative, she is my mom's best friend, but for as long as I can remember she was always Auntie Mila. She took me out for some sushi back towards the strip. I would have liked to have had a longer visit, but it was still an awesome visit.

Later that evening, the group decided to try the buffet at the Paris Hotel. The drive there was slow. Even though it was a Thursday, the strip was at a crawl's pace.

I really need to take pictures sooner. We were already at dessert by the time I remembered to take out my camera.

Traci was reaching for a small jar of jam when she hit her head on the sneeze shield. Her Aunt Lori made her re-enact it for this picture. "C'mon, you have so many embarassing moments on me, let me have this one"

They also asked me to take a picture of this. How did I miss this one?

The Paris buffet also has a crepe bar. Sammi look what you missed!!

The Paris buffet was ok. There were a few things that was disappointing but the company more than made up for it. No matter what we end up doing, we always have a lot of fun doing it.

Palms and Red Rock Canyon

We got all settled over at Tony and Letisha's, we gave the families a call to see what was the day's agenda.
Lunch at The Palms buffet, shopping and/or Red Rock Canyon. Nice...

There was 2 other tables. The Hostess' eyes bugged out a little when we told them we were a party of 28. I don't think she plays poker... heheheh

While some opted for the shopping and others for hitting the tables, I went with the Red Rock Canyon group.
