the Visit, reVamping, and Vegas - part 2: VEGAS PICTURES

In case you missed it, be sure to check out Part 1: INTRO. I will not offer much explanation in this post, mostly just pictures.

And if you made it all through the intro, congrats! you are now being rewarded with lots of pictures! (fyi, captions are above the pictures)

Freezing in the lazy river


















Watching the fountain show at Bellagio our first night.




































Headed to the strip on day two, we stop first to take a group photo.

















One of my new favorite places on Las Vegas Blvd, the m&m store. The four of us bought nearly $50 worth of m&ms and ate them all in 3 days!

















after bobby finally dragged me out of the m&m store, we went to the mgm grand, home of the lion habitat. this is way better than those white tigers. I took a lot of pictures, but I picked these two to show you.


















that trainer is as brave as that lion I suppose.


















what has become my favorite hotel & casino, Paris Las Vegas... I don't know what it is about that place, but I love it the most. Don't bobby and I look like we are sitting in a cafe on the streets of paris sharing a gelato?


















dad & daughter in paris

















mom & dad standing in front of a replica of the Fontaines de la Concorde

















bobby really enjoyed his meal at pampas! we all got just the meat entree, but convinced him to get the surf & turf. yeah, we really had to twist his arm really hard...

















it's kind of strange that I have never been to the real new york, new york, but I've been to this fake one twice.

















bobby is standing in "times square"

















loving our burgers at in-n-out!


















It took about 12 takes to get this photo, but it's a good one. Here we are, going out on our last night in vegas.

















Close-up of the giant sphinx in front of the Luxor hotel & casino.

















and finally, we had to get a picture in front of the famous sign!


















two final pictures... here is what the ground in denver looked like when we landed there thursday afternoon on our layover.

















I thought we were still in the clouds, but no, that is snow!

















denver got hit with a horrible snowstorm that week, and even that day that we flew in, there were 4 hour delays and canceled flights. but not for us, southwest got us in and out with only a 15 minute delay. we love southwest. and even when we got to OKC and realized that two of our suitcases were missing, we didn't start hating SW, because they got it the next day, called us, we went and got them, and got two $50 travel vouchers!


Coming soon...
