Viva Las Vegas
My take on Vegas: I saw waaaaaaay too many bottoms and breasts, (they are literally EVERYWHERE you look on the strip) and it's WAY too hot in the summer time. We took this trip because we got 2 nights in a free hotel room for sitting through a 90 minute time share presentation, and it was worth it. I would probably only go there again though if I got a killer deal on a NICE hotel room, but it was definately an interresting place to visit, and it was wonderful to get away anywhere with just Sam and I! We took a ton of pictures to show the kids,I'll spare you (most) of the ones that don't tell the story. We drove for several hours, waited in the dam traffic, (Hoover Dam) Got to our (hilariously cheesey) hotel room, walked and walked and walked until we were ready to pass out from the heat, took lots of pictures of ourselves, ate a wonderful dinner at the Belagio where we were incredibly lucky to be able to skip the hour and a half buffet line because some nice couple felt sorry for the pregnant lady and gave us their front of the line pass! Posed for LOTS of cheesy pictures.Day 2- I discover that the vomit stains on one side of the bed seemed to be growing, so I bravely stepped on them (with shoes of course!) and discovered it was wet and sloshy, and not a stain at all. So Sam got on the phone and informed them of the leak and we were promptly moved to a (slightly larger, and decidedly cleaner) room. We did our time share presentation duty, went to see the latest Harry Potter, did a lot more walking, exploring and picture taking before finally ending the night by calling a cab to rescue me and my blistered feet from Caesars Palace. Then the rain started and we got a great storm through most of the night. The last day we went to check out a very overpriced "outlet" mall and headed home, the end.
