We have been sick all week with a virus of some sort, so we decided we needed a hooky day !!! Yesterday we drove to a neighboring city called Boulder City. It is about 40 minutes from Las Vegas and home to the Hoover Dam. The sky was just beautiful !! The biggest puffiest clouds and blue, blue, blue skies !! Loved it !! It had that fresh smell of rain in the air, as a storm was rolling into the valley.
Here we are at the sweet little Coffee Cup Diner. Ed had seen this little diner on the show " Diners, Drive ins and Dives " And wanted to try it. OH MY GOSH, good artery clogging food to be had there !!! Yum. He had a patty melt and I had the chicken salad. That chicken is homemade and melts in your mouth. And all of the fresh greens were yummy !!
We then went antiquing, and found a great little boutique. I wanted the pink nightstand. :)
Bull in a China Shop. lol Look at that sweet man carrying my package. :) I will say this, I truly am the luckiest woman in the world. My big handsome husband will follow me into any store, no matter how girly and frou frou. And even point out things he thinks I would like.
Neat quilt shop.This is an old landmark, the Boulder City Hotel. We went inside in search of more shops, but it was really muggy in there, so we came back out quickly. :)
The storm started moving into town. This is the main drag. And the Cafe sign on the right is where we had lunch.
We hopped in the car to head back home and stopped at the overlook to Lake Mead. You can see the little valley of homes. I liked the spanish style home. What a view they have !!!
Back up thru the city, we found this sweet cottage. Look at all of the hearts !! Adorable !! Hey, We want your house !!!! lol
And finally, the drive home. What an absolutely lovely day !! Thank you so much Honey !! I love you !!Spring is Coming !!!! Hope you all had a lovely week as well !!
