What happens in Vegas…

What happens in Vegas…gets shared on our blog! Let’s not mention that we went to Las Vegas almost two months ago. Someday I will be caught up and actually write about things as they happen. Luckily I had posted short little updates on Facebook and shared a few photos while we were in Vegas so I’m gonna snag those tidbits.

I made a little slide show/video out of our photos, but you can also view the photo album here.

Day by Day Diary

Day 1
Packed in like sardines on flight.
Karli called me from school crying that she missed me right when our flight landed.
Arrived at Mirage before check in time so strolled around hotel, had brunch, gambled and sat out by the pool.
Got our room and took a 90 minute cat nap.
Went to dinner at The Buffet at the Wynn, Yum!

Las Vegas Trip

Walked down the strip, gambled at The Flamingo and Bellagio.
I won back all that I had lost for the day plus some extra!
Watched the volcano at the Mirage.

In bed at midnight, 3am MI time…almost up 24 hours.
Been a long yet wonderful day!!

Day 2
Woke up early as I expected with time change.
Reserved our seats around the Mirage pool (towel placement).
Had chicken bowls from Chicken Now at the Venetian.
Rejuvenated at Oxygen Bar, Sounds corny, but I really did feel great afterwards. Or maybe that was the peach Bellini from Fat Tuesdays? LOL.
Quick gambling stop on our way back to our room where I made a fast $100 and cashed out.
Cooked our skin for a few hours.

Las Vegas Trip

Went to New York New York and their machines were tight.
Had dinner at MGM.
Won zilch at their casino as well.
Seen David Copperfield at the MGM, it was good. Not sure I would recommend. It was somewhat entertaining but not mind blowing and quite pricey. Something about Copperfield annoyed me. Arrogance maybe?
Gambled at Excalibur til about 1am and was ahead quite a bit but got greedy and lost most of it.
I’m fried, literally and figuratively!

Day 3
Darn 3 hour time difference! Once again we were up early.
Went to Gilley’s at Treasure Island for an early lunch, yummy BBQ pulled pork sandwich.
Gambled there and lost.
Walked around some and took our time before going out in the sun.
After some drinks and pool time we walked around the Forum Shops at Caesar’s Palace.
We ate dinner at Caesar’s as well, Joe’s Seafood. We shared some delicious Stone Crab and Madagascar shrimp. So good! For my meal I got crab stuffed shrimp and Ken got Prime Rib and we shared some mashed potatoes. I highly recommend this restaurant for steak and seafood lovers.
Then we seen O Cirque du Soleil at the Bellagio and oh my goodness it was so amazing. Totally entertaining and worth every penny. It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before.

Las Vegas Trip

We gambled at Bellagio, Harrah’s and Mirage. I keep breaking even for the most part but Ken can’t catch a break.
All day I was thinking about how grateful I am to be spending this time together!!

Day 4
Our last day was pretty chill.
We enjoyed our last afternoon around the Mirage pool and were entertained by some crazy drunk girls for several hours.
We ate dinner at the Mirage Burger Bar. The best fried pickles I have had in my life.
We walked around in search of souvenirs for the kids.

We enjoyed our last night of people watching, the best free activity in Las Vegas.
Finally got to see the Bellagio Fountains, very peaceful and beautiful.
We are ready to go home, but sad to see our vacation come to an end.
We had an amazing time and Ken is ready to book our return trip!
