Our friends moved to Mesquite and they really love it there so we visited to check it out. The development is really pretty and we checked out a bunch of model homes as well as the rec center. We really liked the $3.95 breakfast at the Virgin River Casino (much like they used to have in old Las Vegas).
...to our destination in St George Utah, the Texas Roadhouse Restaurant. This is a popular chain known for its hot rolls and big barrels of peanuts that you eat while waiting for your table (and throw the shells on the floor!). And I saw a Phillips 66 gas station--I haven't seen one of those in ages!
Then it was back to Las Vegas... Overall we had a great trip!
