Vegas, Day 1 & 2

Two weeks ago Stuart and I took a little trip to Vegas for the Shot Show(Gun show). For those of you that don't know, I am married to a gun enthusiast and dealer. He started his own business, V Bar Guns & Ammo almost 3 years ago. Guns are his second love, I being the first. I hope! We stopped at my sister and brother in laws, Collette and Randy. He's been wanting to see some of Stuart's guns. When we got everything unloaded from the truck, I felt like the Fullergun salesman going from door to door. It was a pretty funny sight heading for their door. Stuart and Randy doing a bit of gun business.
Show and tell time. Stuart is pretty knowledgeable in the world of guns. We stayed and had lunch with them and their two daughters, Lindsay and Alayna. Thanks for a great lunch at the Pizza Factory all of you. It was nice getting caught up on a few things. Then it was off to St. George for the night.
Lindsay, Collette & Alayna.
We met the newest member of the Cowan family. Meet Benson Marriott, he is the little one of Alayna. He was born 3 days after our Christmas baby, Teegan. What a sweet, sweet baby.
We got early Tuesday morning and headed for Vegas. We spent all morning and afternoon looking at things like this.
This is a replica of the guns and holster that Roy Rogers used in his t.v. show. They were going to be giving this away. Hum, I guess we didn't win!
We saw alot of this kind of stuff too.
This is a armored police truck on display at the show.
In the booth at Thompson Fire Arms they were displaying this gold plated machine gun. Wow, I wonder what the price on this gun is? No dear, you can't have it! It was just fun getting a picture in front of it.
Stuart is a big fan of Browning guns, maybe because they are made up north here in Utah.
Later that evening we went to the dinner show sponsored by the Outdoor Channel. It was held at the Venetian Hotel. What a beautiful place. The tables were beautifully set. We shared the table with 3 other couples. It was fun getting to know there where abouts. And we felt we knew their likes already!
We started off with a delicious green salad. Oh boy was it good. Our main dish was a chicken breast and red potatoes. I'm pretty sure it had a fancy name but I didn't catch it. Nor, did I get a picture.
But rest a sure I did get a picture of the dessert. It was a chocolate mousse cake. My, oh
my was it heavenly. I was so full I didn't eat mine until the show part of the evening. Let's get this show started!We were entertained by the funny man himself, Jeff Foxworthy. Oh, my gosh this guy is so funny. I was laughing so hard I was crying. It was a nice clean show, no fowl language just pure clean humor.
Our first day in Vegas was a fun one. Now what will we do the rest of the week. Stay tuned for the adventures of day three and four of our Vegas trip.
