Las Vegas May Family Trip February 2009

Add a comment

Rick, Buck, Bill and me (Brenda) May and Susan Semanick(May) and Diane Kacer, Bill May’s girlfriend, all went to Las Vegas in February 2009. In a whirlwind 4 day trip, we ate, drank, gambled and took in some shows. Hey, let’s not forget shopping! You can never have enough pairs of shoes!

We stayed at New York New York and had a wonderful dinner at Gallagher’s Steak House in our hotel. My son, Patrick, and my ex, Bruce Audley, both highly recommended this restaurant. It was absolutely wonderful!

Rick and I walked for 900 miles every day (okay, 5 miles) taking in the sites – the last time either of us were in Vegas was at least 20 years ago so we saw huge changes!!!! My favorites were the beautiful glass flowers on the Bellagio ceiling in the lobby, the quaint shops in Paris, and the cozy atmosphere at Treasure Island. Most of all, I loved the Wynn Hotel. Rick and I has a really lovely lunch in the little cafe at the Wynn near the Manolo Blanik. Gotta love those shoes! It was a very truly amazing hotel – one of the prettiest I have ever seen.

One of the exciting hits of our trip was my win at the Casino. Usually I only play the penny machines and have a $40 limit but the second day of our trip, Rick gave me 2 one hundred dollar bills to play with. I sat down at a nickel machine, popped in a hundred, and 4 spins later, won $928.64; another hundred and another $528.19 win, and finally popped in a five dollar bill and won $161.38 – over $1600 US$ – a pretty amazing win in under 10 minutes. I cashed out right away and put the tickets in the safe – cashed them in just before leaving for the airport. I was thrilled!

Next trip – another Caribbean cruise in this fall (September) with Rick and my son, Patrick.

These photos are a collection of memories of the Bayrack / Audley / Fedoruk / May family members and events from 1923 to the present date. Also incuded are photos of various holidays around the world, pets, friends and great pictures from our deck and of Vancouver before the real estate boom of the late 1990’s. I love to take pictures and also to cook. In 2000, I compiled a cookbook of my favorite and much loved recipes. My joys in life are family, friends, taking photos, nature, cooking and bingo.

Rick and I met at a real barn dance on May 6, 1994. We saw each other across the room while line dancing. Rick’s cousin Jan invited me to the barn dance and the rest is history! Our courtship was whirlwind and we married in Mazatlan, Mexico on December 25th, 1994. This is the 13th year we have been married and we are still in love!
