It goes without saying that my father and I had a wonderful time. It was filled with lots of laughs and some memories that will last a lifetime. We're already planning to go back again next March or April. He's a late-blooming as Vegas addict in the making.
A little back-story here - I've been wanting to treat my Dad to a vacation for a long time. My mom is disabled and Dad has basically been her at-home nurse for the last 5 years of her immobility on top of working a full time job. He retired this past April and has still been working his tail off at home. He needed a break. So I invited him to join me in LV. I'll never forget that when I asked him he squealed like a little girl. Mom was actually quite glad for him to take some time off and we arranged with a family friend to look in on her once a day. We also talked to her every night and she was enjoying her time alone.
We decided to go in August because I wanted him to see the Star Trek Experience before it was demolished. Dad would also be celebrating his 66th birthday on August 28th while we were in town. I paid for his hotel rooms and his airfare. He paid for our meals and entertainment. We both had our own gambling money and were ready to hit the town.
TR will come below.
