Back Home

Well, I've been home from Vegas for a couple of days now. What a trip! That is a VERY, VERY cool place to visit! There is something to see everywhere you look, and there is most certainly something for everybody there. You want to gamble? You have your choice of casinos . . . from busy, noisy and smoky to classy, quiet and sweet-smelling. You like shows? There are shows for every taste - comedy, musicals, artistic . . . and every night of the week, if not twice a night. You want to shop? This is a mecca for shoppers, with high end stores and outlets as far as the eye can see. It was just amazing.

We spent some time on Monday at Siegfried and Roy's Magic Garden and Dolphin Habitat, which was great. It was a super hot day, so we spent most of our time in the shade, just taking in the signs. We watched the dolphins for a while, and then checked out the white lions and tigers, and the snow leopard and panther. It was very relaxing, and well worth the $16 each. Monday night we saw Cirque de Soleil's "Le Reve" which was absolutely amazing. The stage is water, and the acrobatics are just incredible. The men . . . oh, the men. I'd have taken any one of them home with me in a heartbeat.

Tuesday we went to the Las Vegas Premium Outlets, which is an outdoor mall of all kinds of stores. Wow, I spent a few dollars there ;) I got some VERY cute outfits for my nieces and nephew, as well as a few items for me and my parents. Tuesday afternoon we spent some time at the Lion Habitat at the MGM Grand. I LOVE that hotel! The Lion Habitat is very cool - and best of all, it's free! We really enjoyed it. We had dinner at the MGM Grand Buffet, and it was awesome. Great selection and very yummy food. I would recommend it to anybody.

Tuesday night we saw two shows - Cirque de Soleil's KA and the Blue Man Group. KA was quite different than Le Reve, but it was good in its own right. Very acrobatic, with a bit of martial arts mixed in. The stage moved all over, so that was pretty cool. I preferred Le Reve, but both shows were good. The Blue Man Group was awesome! So funny, and a really enjoyable show . . . I loved it! I laughed SO hard!

Wednesday we flew home at the crack of dawn. That was horrible, getting up after just a couple of hours of sleep, but I was ready to come home.

So in a nutshell, that was my trip. I'll try and post pictures within the next few days . . . when I am feeling better and have some time to download and re-size.
