Weekend in North Las Vegas


We decided to spend my last weekend before returning to Lyon, France in North Las Vegas visiting Andy, Jenn and Kevin, a.k.a., Tank.

Almost to the desert oasis that is
Baker, California!

Laurie is a not-so-secret admirer
of the Big Boy 

Lunch in Baker is trés chic!

Baker is about 3 1/2 hours from Camarillo and about 90 minutes from North Las Vegas.

 Kevin greeted us in his
mini-bounce house

Political discussions in the Blue Room 

Nice shoes 

Architecture melting in the desert sun

It is actually the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health  designed, not surprisingly by Frank Gehry. It is located near the Las Vegas Fremont Experience.

Kevin and I decided to camp out
on Friday night

No, it is NOT my hat!

GREAT BBQ!!! 

We ate like kings!

Saturday afternoon at the park

 Gear Head

 Oooh, a slide!

We had a marvelous time in the desert. I will miss them greatly for the next five months, to say the least.
