E Friday - year of the tiger

In following the tradition of Clare we return again to E Friday, where I post photos of my darling granddaughter E, because VG really likes to look at these pics.

When E and her mother were out visiting a few weeks ago we went down to the Strip to just walk a bit. One of our stops was the Venetian so that we could see what they had set up for the Chinese New Year, as that is one hotel that caters to foreigners, and does a good job of decorating throughout the year. Well, in the atrium they had set up a big tiger, since, well, this will be the year of the tiger.

E liked it, just had to reach over and pet its tail, and was disappointed that she couldn’t sit on its back. (hey, stripes with plastic flower leis look nice, no complaints now) And stripes alone look pretty good (right Lisa?)

Sorry, a bit of off-post here: while at the Venetian we did get to see one of my favorite Vegas sights; bride in wedding gown. This one is a little different than those just wandering the Strip; the white gondola is used for weddings, so she was being married here. Guess they are waiting for the minister to show up. No word on whether she did go out and wander the Strip for the entire afternoon wearing this outfit.

We did put her to work while here. She learned how to handle a broom, unfortunately it was because she found it herself and ended up sweeping up our gravel desert landscape.

She was not successful at sweeping up all the dirt however.
And she did put in quite an amount of time on the yellow swing.

Gee, she makes a great Beryl the Peril in that 'Dennis the Menace' red stripe top!
