Wednesday and Thursday: Kris had to work, so we spent time with Marin and took her to the park and played and went shopping, etc. Marin at this point was starting to not feel so hot, and was throwing temps, so we hung low.
Friday: Kris took the day off and we all headed to the Hoover Dam for a tour. Kris ended up staying behind at the visitors center with a VERY cranky little girl while the rest of us went on the 45 minute tour. Then we had some lunch and headed home to change. We had a babysitter that night so the four of us went to our favorite little locals restaurant called Firefly, we LOVE it there. The mood is so vibrant and fun, but laid back, the food is delicious (it's a little Tapas place). Then we went to see Phantom of the Opera. What a treat! Kris and I had seen it before, but it was just as good the second time around.
Saturday: I finally took Marin to the doctor's office as she wasn't getting any better, and the poor bugger had bronchiolitis and an ear infection, no wonder she wasn't feeling well! We went home with some oral steroids, antibiotics and a nebulizer machine to give her breathing treatments. (She is finally feeling better today). We let Marin have a nice nap and started her meds and since it was nice outside, took everyone to the base of Red Rock Canyon for a little hike, some fresh air and scenery. Marin needed a nice distraction, and it did the trick. That night I made some yummy deep dish pizza, and Kris tok me on a quick date for some ice cream and to Wal-Mart (haha, our dates are so different now!). When we got home, I colored my dads hair and gave him a haircut, wouldn't you know, the chap looks 20 years younger!
Sunday: Everyone went home :( Ahhh well, in another 7 weeks, we will be headed to PARIS!
Here are some of the pictures from our adventures, sadly, there aren't many of Marin, she was NOT in picture taking mood last week:
Part of the inside of the Venetian, so pretty! It looks almost like the real thing, too!
The canals inside the Venetian. If you have never been, they have built a canal resembling the waterways of Venice and offer gondola rides.

Another view of the canal.

Kris and me in front of the waterfall at the Palazzo (the Venetian's new sister resort), LOVE this pic. And for as much weight as I have lost, my face sure doesn't show it! I have the mommy face now :)
They have it decorated in the Chinese Year of the Tiger.
Hence, the tiger!

We all had such a good time, and although Marin was not the most receptive to new faces this week, I think she enjoyed seeing grandpa and grandma. Soon enough she will be staying with them for 10 days! My big girl! We are so glad to have had fun!.
And Marin is doing much better, after two solid days of her meds, she is finally starting to look healthy again. Yesterday we thought she was ready for church and so we got all ready to go, and then we had an inconsolably crying little girl who just wanted to snuggle with mama and take a nap. Sweet baby :) She is feeling better today for sure.
