Thanksgiving in Las Vegas


Last year Elliott's team played in a soccer tournament over Thanksgiving weekend.  It was a lot of fun to have warm and sunny weather, hang out and eat good food.  We did eat Shake Shack on the strip for our Thanksgiving dinner.

And, we shopped.  The black Friday deals were pretty good.

So, this August we decided that we should do the same thing.  We did.  It was great.

We drove down on Thanksgiving morning, ate Shake Shack for dinner and did some Thanksgiving night black Friday shopping.  Our goal was to find new basketball shoes for the boys, get some Christmas presents checked off our list, and eat, eat, eat.

In addition to eating, we did a lot of shopping, hung out at a nice park, drove through the Red Rock State Park scenic loop and enjoyed some much needed sunshine.

We were originally planning on staying through Sunday but after a couple of days in Vegas - there really isn't that much to do - we decided that it was a good idea to come home, so we drove home on Saturday instead.

Harlem Globetrotters and Go Utes

The best thing about November is basketball, am I right?

Sometimes it feels like we wait forever for the Utah games to start and I guess this year we couldn't wait, so Ross got us tickets to see the Harlem Globetrotters at the Delta Center.

I've always wanted to see the Globetrotters in real life, not just on Scooby-Doo, and it was a lot of fun.  Our timing was pretty good, too because had we waited another year or two, the boys would probably be too old to really have as much fun as they did.
