Vegas Synopsis

I realize that I never delivered on my promise to blog in Vegas (Thanks, to my cousin Carrie, for pointing that out)! So I thought I'd catch everyone up with the highlights! We stayed in the Palazzo which is the same hotel we stayed in the last time. Maybe that is boring but I'm the type of gal that finds something that works and sticks with it. Plus, I knew that there was an awesome spa there, too!

A little side note here...I found my calling. My dream career, if you will. So what if that means I would work at an airport. It would be worth it to work here...

We got to the hotel and checked in for a little relaxation. It is always cool to see the new sights of a new town. New faces, new places, that kind of thing!

Vegas is the ultimate in seeing unique sights! For example...Cher was playing at Caesar's. We had an up close look at some of her costumes. I think it would be really weird to have people stop to look at and take pictures of your clothes.

Then again...I think it would be really weird to have these babies hanging in your closet!

We stopped to drool over this... a real life guitar from the Joshua Tree tour signed by all the members of U2. Doc told me if we happened to win five grand, we were coming back to buy this baby! Needless to is still in the store.

On the airplane ride, we watched a travel channel show on Vegas and they talked about the neon signs that they refurbished. We headed downtown to Freemont Street to check them out and see the new sites. We've never made it down there out of all the times we've been to Vegas!

We discovered some other interesting sights down there, too! For example...this dude who sculpts a bust of someone out of clay, on the spot! And really, who wouldn't want a bust of themselves if they looked like this guy with the flowing, long hair!

Also, I think Vegas is the only place that you would run across a showgirl posing with 2 brides while the two grooms take their photos.

And I saved the best for last. I've never seen anyone with toes so long. If only he had an opposable big toe....

So, there you go...the highlights from our trip! Or at least all the weird stuff. Hope you enjoyed!!
