Time for a Troy update!
Well, that boy is learning by leaps and bounds every day! If a week goes by without seeing him, we are amazed at what all he's learned in those 7 days.
In these videos, he is 5 days shy of being 6 months old and he has virtually full control of those arms and legs. Now, if he can synchronize those limbs, he'll be able to crawl and walk!
The videos are from a week ago Sunday when our daughter-in-law Lucy brought him over. They show him the first time he is placed in a walker at his grandparent's house (he has another walker at his own house). We quickly discover that the walker works much better on the bare wood floor than on carpet and move the carpet aside. He seems thrilled and frustrated by his ability to move around on those floors. We are pretty sure this is the first time he's used a walker that is not on carpet. Take a look!

The Hard Rock Hotel, San Diego's Omni Hotel, and now Aria all have doors like this.
Another view of the other side of the pool. Now bring me my liquid refreshment (we recommend the Poolside Punch - very good). Speaking of liquid, they also have a 4th pool for adults only called Liquid. It is topless and actually more like a nightclub with a live DJ. Since it only costs $20, we decided to give that a try and went in...it was going to be Nikki's first time topless. Well, what they forgot to tell us is that it is another $60 - each - to sit down! Every seat in the place had a "reserved" sign on it, and a "host" would choose which seat we could have for $60. We decided it was not worth that price to us, so we got a refund and left. Then we noted that scouts from Liquid kept coming by offering to "comp" the young females around the regular pools into Liquid....they weren't getting many takers, but a few did go.
Anyway, that's our take on the amenities. Our recommendation: if you want to be close to the Vegas strip but want something just a little more laid back, not as loud, more adult, try Aria. It's a great hotel.
San Francisco exhibit last year and now this Chihuly Gallery in Las Vegas, but I'm not. We just happen to stumble across his work. Yes, there was a Chihuly exhibit at City Center in Las Vegas and we took a gander inside.
