Vegas Baby!

After getting home last night at 1:30 am I am now a bit more rested and ready to get back into the swing of things, although I am a little reluctant. We had a very relaxing and fun trip and it is hard to get back into reality. I didn't take too many pics but I will share a few.

A view of the strip from the plane. We were amazed at how much new construction is taking place and how much more was built from last year when we visited.

In my new favorite hotel, Palazzo. It is linked with the Venetian which is a huge hotel. The number of stores within the hotel is amazing. One of our favorite things to do is wander through the hotels and take in all their cool offerings.

Our favorite free thing to do is watch and enjoy the Bellagio water fountains. Simply wonderful! We paid for some shows as well. We saw Mystere by Cirque du Soleil again. We also saw Tony 'N Tina's wedding which is a hilarious dinner theater and Cher. Cher was good but she spent half of the 90 min. concert changing clothes, oh well it was an okay show.

Outside our hotel, Flamingo. We love staying there because of the awesome pool area. Since we spend so much time there we want it to be fun.Well, back to reality. When we got home last night it was to find a very hot house. Apparently the air conditioning went out yesterday. It is very warm inside right now and we are waiting for the air guy to come and fix whatever is broken. Luckily I have the Opening Ceremony to keep me company.

Steve ("Mr. Cates" to us) was loved by all of his classes at Trinity sorry you guys could not come to our reunion, but I think I would have rather been out of town as well.

Pamela and I missed the Bellagio fountains, but Alan and Josh got to see them.

I can't think about Vegas without remembering all those tasty buffet dinners. And here ya'll got back from wining/dining on that luxury cruise!

Glad ya'll had fun! We are nursing our mosquito bites from our camping trip, and trying to RECUPERATE!
