Vegas photos

Hey guys!

Pat and left Vegas earlier today and headed to Palm Springs.

The last few days have been spent doing lots of walking, eating, drinking yummy cocktails, and just relaxing.

Here are a few photos taken since the last time I posted:

We left Las Vegas at about 10 this morning and decided to rent a convertible for the drive to CA.

It took us about 4 1/2 hours to make the drive to Palm Springs.

It is HOT!! People say it is a dry heat, but it is still extremely hot! It is currently 110 out!

Since it is so hot out, we just got lunch at the pool bar and then walked around for only a very short time.

We are just hanging out in the room now and I’m not sure what is on the agenda for later tonight. Tomorrow we are going to drive to the San Diego zoo. We’ve heard it is awesome and I am excited to go!

Have a great night … check in with you later!! 🙂

Our first 2 days in Vegas

Hey guys!

After we checked into our room, we decided to walk around and find something to eat.

Being that we both love country music, we figured Toby Keith’s bar would be the perfect place to have lunch.

I started with one of the best and biggest margaritas I’ve ever had.

The margarita was $18 but it was so worth it (and I drank every drop of it .. Pat was impressed!). We also shared an appetizer of fried macaroni and cheese which was delicious. I ordered a barbecue chicken salad and Pat had a burger.

After lunch we decided to walk around some more. One stop we made was at Sugar Factory.

I filled a big bin of candy for $16 and was drooling. I spotted this T-shirt while I was there and made sure to send my sister a text of it. 🙂

We continued to walk around for several hours.

20140705-184502.jpg

We made a stop at the casino and I even won $150 … woohoo!!

20140705-184551.jpg

Another stop for a margarita was made. Sadly these margaritas could not compare to the one earlier in the day.

We eventually made our way back to the room, relaxed for a while, and then headed up to the 38th floor of our hotel to watch some fireworks.

Even though we were up quite late on July 4th, we were up bright and early this morning.

We walked downstairs and had breakfast.

After breakfast, we decided to rub elbows with the celebrities. 🙂

Hanging out with celebrities all day is really exhausting, so we needed to stop for a bite to eat. We went to Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar.

We decided to share an appetizer of chicken wings and pepperoni wrapped breadsticks (which came with a side of provolone cheese dipping sauce).

After a wonderful lunch, we walked around the strip for a few more hours.

We were both super tired from walking around literally all day long so we made a necessary stop for some ice cream.

We’re now back in our room eating some snacks and watching TV while I write up this post.

Tonight we are going to a comedy show and will probably just grab a quick dinner before we go.

Have a great night and I’ll be back within the next few days with a new recap of our vacation. 🙂
