Vegas -Part Two

October 28, 2008

Where were we?

Oh yeah.  Saturday night we stayed out until 1:30 in the morning.  Yes.  1:30 a.m.  And boy, was I feeling it the next day!  We got to sleep in a little bit, but Kristy called our room so excited to eat at the Bellagio buffet, so we got a move on, and got to the buffet line right when everyone else in Vegas did.  Oh well, it was only about a 45 minute wait, and it was totally worth it!  I think Jeff, Kristy, and Joel drank their money’s worth in mimosas, and I am fairly certain that I (along with BoGo) ate my money’s worth!  It was just as delicious as I had remembered (kind of like In N Out).  After brunch, we thought a walk was in order, so we made our way to several casinos that Kristy and Joel hadn’t seen yet.  We saw Mandalay Bay, Luxor, Excaliber, and MGM Grand.  Then we headed to New York New York again, where Kristy and Joel went on the roller coaster.  I couldn’t go because the sign said so…

After that excitement, we headed back to the hotel, where we changed and got ready to go to Treasure Island for the Cirque de Soleil show, Mystere.  It was a surprise for Kristy, and both she and Jeff had a lot of fun!   Before the show, we had some time to kill, so we stopped for drinks (and a free show) at a place that has these AMAZING flair bartenders.  Jeff and I had seen one of them on the Food Network, and he was so cool to watch in person.  All four of the bartenders did the craziest tricks, and it was really fun to see.  After Mystere, we took a cab to New York New York (again) for some pizza since we never had dinner.  And after that, everyone was ready to call it a night, believe it, or not.  Fine by me!

We got up on Monday and did more sightseeing.  Nothing too exciting, since we were all pretty much Vegased-out – but we did manage to see the Venetian and the Wynn.  We stopped for a break (for the pregnant lady) at the Wynn and had some refreshments and a strawberry shortcake sundae for BoGo, and then Jeff and I left to go back to the hotel to get our luggage and head to the airport.  Kristy and Joel’s flight wasn’t until two hours later, so they went over to the Stratosphere to go on the Big Shot ride.  Jeff played the pregnancy-card at the airport, and got us upgraded to first-on the flight, which was awesome.  First on means first off, baby!  For the first time ever, he actually had enough leg room, LOL! 

I’ll leave you now (time for bed) with a few more pictures from our Vegas vacation!  Good night!

    Oh goodness. Possibly the one great thing about not being able to drink in Vegas is that you look fabulous in all the photos! You are one hot mama! As for your companions (or maybe just me) – yikes! Love, sis

    PS – hope you and the babies (and Jeff!) have all recovered! What troopers!
