After living here in the Las Vegas valley for 8 years now,
I should be used to hearing all the comments about -
"How can you live there? How can you stand the weather?
How can you raise your kids there?"
Well. It really gets tiring after awhile. Trust me, I totally "get"
someone being curious. I too, am curious about why people do certain things.
But sometimes it isn't curiosity, it's just lack of respect for someone else's choice
on how to live, that just really bugs the crap out of me. And we get a LOT of THAT
here in Vegas.
So, some very good friends of ours own a condo at Lake Las Vegas Resort.
It is a little piece of paradise away from Las Vegas and even away from busy, residential
Henderson. You feel like you are so much further "away" than you actually are.
And you know you are in a place that people who wonder what you see in the Vegas lifestyle
have NO FLIPPING clue about. I like that.
We joined friends this past Saturday for a party
celebrating one of Hannah's friends 16th birthday.
We all had an amazing time! Their condo sits on Reflection Bay.
The weather was just perfect. Sunny, warm, breezy. We spent the day between
visiting friends indoors, walking the sandy beach, watching the kids have fun on
the lake and in the pool.
