1200 miles later....

Just got back from the round-trip to Las Vegas to see Raymond and Marie finally get married. I'm glad we've got the Honda Element, and I'm glad we turned up a day earlier than planned. Marie was panicking beautifully about ferrying luggage and parents around between locations and hotels. We were gladly able to help out.
The wedding was great, at Arch Rock in the Valley of Fire. It was piggin' hot - 45°C. They were staying at the Red Rock casino and hotel complex, and after the wedding we went back there, had pizza for lunch then chilled out for about 3 hours in the pool. Paula and Marie boiled themselves in the jacuzzi whilst Raymond and I caught up with all the news. The pool area was great - huge pool with speakers underwater. Neat. The Red Rock is a great new complex, miles away from the strip with huge rooms, high ceilings and a lot of natural and wood finishes inside.
The big surprise though was on tuesday. As I stood in line at the checkin in the Luxor, my dad walked up to me and said "Hi, son". We had no idea they were even there. Basically, once they knew the dates we were going to be in Vegas for the wedding, they arranged to fly over and surprise us. And boy was I surprised.
So all in all, this was the best Vegas trip we've ever done. Paula won a buttload of cash on the 1-cent slots. My mum and dad turned up to surprise us, and we finally got to see Raymond and Marie get married.
Nice.
