Father's Day Celebration at Jen and John's

Monday we took a day trip out to Virginia City in Nevada to celebrate Father's Day together. We had a late lunch at The Delta Saloon which was very good. I went off healthy eating and enjoyed fish and chips. Some of the best I have ever had - light batter, not greasy and thick pieces of fish. The chips were excellent too. I covered everything in malt vinegar of course.

Justin is so grown up! Love his new hair cut.

Justin checking out the original suicide table at The Delta Saloon. I guess a lot of people committed suicide at this table including the owners!

Jen and Jus goofing off - I love it!

We went into the old bank vault that is actually inside a saloon.

Jus checking out a silver note in the case. He couldn't get over how much bigger they are compared to our bills today.

The MacKay beautiful.

Old mine tailing's from the 1870's.

There is a place you can learn to pan for gold and everyone gets a little gold to take home. I imagine young kids would enjoy this. We didn't partake. It was a hoot though, the two guys down there looked like miners from the 1870's!

Some of the museums and shops.

The Comstock Lode.

And the world famous Bucket of Blood Saloon.
