Las Vegas: Day 2, time for the Cake Off!

Day 2, we checked out of our Wingate Wyndham hotel in Henderson and after a short stop at the grocery store we headed back to Aunt Angela's house. After a short trip to the pool I took Nirel with me to fill up the car and for a short shopping trip. You stayed with Daddy and were such a good girl. About 2pm you went down for a 2 1/2 hour nap, it was so great! You got such a good rest in and Mommy got to relax. Everyone started coming about 4pm and the Cake Off began!

There were seven entries into the cake baking competition. I had the only ice cream cake, Gina made cake baked in ice cream cones and Nirel made a molten chocolate lava cake. You can see Denny's creation in the photo above. We ate ribs, chicken and brisket and if were weren't stuffed enough it was time for cake! We all sampled some of everyone's cake and then by hidden ballot we voted. Nirel and Denny ended in a tie, so we had to do a tie breaker and Nirel won, much to the chagrin of Denny! We had a great time but had to get back on the road after the party was over, about 9pm. We DID NOT want to get stuck in Las Vegas holiday weekend traffic the next day. You and I dozed off while Daddy drove us home. Good thing to, when we got home you did not want to go back to sleep so I had to stay up with you, good thing I got my sleep in earlier.
