Visiting Las Vegas with Kalle and Aila -- Post #388 for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I'm posting old (and sometimes new) family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here are some of the most precious (to me) images from my Seaver/Leland photograph collection:

The parents of Mia, one of our 1994 Exchange girls, visited us in May 2003.  Kalle and Aila traveled from Tornio, Finland to San Diego, and we then drove to Victorville (to see our daughter Tami), Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, and Lake Havasu in Arizona.   We had a wonderful time sharing our lives together, sightseeing, and took a few good photographs.

1)  We stayed at the Excalibur in Las Vegas.  Here is Kalle near the registration check-in:

2)  We visited an umber of the Las Vegas Strip hotels.  Here is Aila in front of Luxor:

3)  We ate dinner at a restaurant in New York New York:

4)  We spent some time at the Excalibur pool, which had views of other hotels - the pyramid is the Luxor:

We enjoyed the two weeks we had with Aila and Kalle - they are really happy and friendly people.  They learned a lot about United States history, geography and politics on this trip.
