Other posts on this trip: Spring Break in Las Vegas on the Strip.

As much fun as we had running around on the Strip, I think it’s safe to say we had way more fun on this trip sightseeing in the rest of Las Vegas and the desert beyond. There were so many cool things to do.

We just got back from a week in Vegas early yesterday morning. We’re all still very jet lagged, but I’m putting my photos together from the trip. I’m splitting them into a couple of posts just to spread them out a little.

A week in Las Vegas with a three-year-old is a very different animal than a week with just adults. The last time we were there was almost exactly 4 years ago, also on spring break, with my mother- and stepfather-in-law. This trip was very different, but so much fun.

We went back to Lancaster July 1-3, but this time it was three generations of women heading to Kitchen Kettle Village. I do love it there, although after our second stay in the Inn at Kitchen Kettle Village I’m a little grossed out by the infrequently-washed carpets. It was much worse this time, I may have to rethink things for our next visit.

This is what we got ourselves up to.

It has been busy around here. Today was Hannah’s last day of school, and I’ve been writing and sewing quite a bit. Plus, all of the makeover prep for this site!

So, it is taking a while to finish posting these trip photos from Normandy. I still have quite a few, but I’m going to bust them all out in one final post.

I love, love, loved Rouen. I especially loved the timber-framed buildings.

I didn’t realize today was the 70th anniversary of D-Day, and I hadn’t planned on posting these photos. I was going to talk about Rouen and a zoo and more food. But, it seems like a really good time to just post the photos we took. My lens was filthy on that beach, I have no idea why. It was windy and sandy, I guess.

Dieppe was the nearest city to where we were staying in France. We spent an afternoon tooling around there, and we also poked around in some other gorgeous spots in the area near the little house.

After spending last weekend in DC, Hannah and I dropped Adam off at the train station so he could come back to NYC for work. But I’d decided a couple of months before that it would be really fun for Hannah and me to go away together for a few days during her spring break. A mommy/daughter trip.

So, we (I) decided to drive from Washington to Lancaster county in PA. After a morning running around DC together, we hopped in the car and set off.

Hannah’s school was closed for spring break this week, so we decided to drive down to Washington D.C. last weekend to see the sites. Neither Adam nor I had been to DC since we were kids. We were only there from Friday night through Monday, and there was so much we didn’t get to see. But we had such a marvelous weekend; gorgeous weather, lots to see and do, tons of fun with the toddler. We’re already anxious to go back.

We spent all of last week at an all-inclusive in Punta Cana with my other set of in-laws. And my BIL Thomas. It was glorious, but insanely hot and humid. And I did get a little twitchy with so little internet access. But endless beachside piña coladas definitely made up for it, as did the incredible massage I had in a hut on the beach. And Hannah loved it; she had a solid routine down of mornings at the pool, naps in the room, afternoons on the sand. Not a bad way to bring in October.

Other posts on this trip: Connecticut.

Once we left Connecticut we headed back up to Portland. We just loved it so much when we were there in March, and we really wanted to go back to Duckfat.

We were there for 3 days, and we spent more time wandering around the city. East End Cupcakes was yummy.
