Vi Va Las Vegas!


Owen and I went to Vegas this weekend to celebrate his birthday. We had a great time! It was kind of weird not being with one of our families because it didn't take us FOREVER to do everything. We stayed at the Excalibur, got a good price and then we were upgraded when we got there, so overall we were satisfied with our stay.

The first night we walked up the strip and hit a few casinos we have never been inside and watched the fountains at Belligio--I don't think you can ever see this too many times. We went inside Ceasers Palace and I loved the staircase they have-- the rounded escaladers.
We then went on a whim and decided to buy Jay Leno tickets and go see his comedy show. It was really hilarious and we had a good time.
The next day we took it easy and hung around the hotel, went shopping at the outlet malls, visited M&M & Coca Cola world and went and watched Paul Blart at the movies. After the movie we decided to play Risk and sadly Owen, once again dominated me. I know depressing! I am still really upset about that but I will win next time! Overall we had a great time it was nice to get away but not so nice to come home to a winter-wonderland.

Looks like you had a great time. Family is great but when we were dinks it was also nice just to get away with just the two of us. While you have the chance I would do it as much as possible.
