Las Vegas

This past week Mom, Dad and I went to Las Vegas for a "mini vacation." We had the best time! Las Vegas is probably not the place I would have chosen if I were planning the trip, but I am so glad Mom and Dad picked Vegas. It is one of those places everyone need to experience at least once in their lifetime. It really isn't like any other place I've been.

We stayed at the Palazzo, which was SO nice!! Our room was amazing and the view was great. You know me, I had to take pictures of the room. It had a sunk in living area separate from the sleeping area.

The view from our room.

The Palazzo is the sister hotel to the Venetian. They are connected by an amazing shopping mall that is centered around canals complete with gondolas. The ceiling is painted like the sky and you actually feel as if you are outside walking a street in Italy. It really is amazing!

This was a real man dressed as a statue. It was neat, but at the same time really creepy!

We tried our hand at a little gambling...ha!! I think in all we spent about $6 or $7.Dad was the big winner!! Here he is holding his winnings.... $0.10!!!
Mama, who is known for her thriftiness, finally got the courage up to bet $1. Notice the slot machine and what is reads: "Call Attendant. Bill Jam In Acceptor." This was too funny! Her dollar was stuck and we couldn't find an attendant!!

We headed downtown to here...
in hopes to see them.....
but as you can imagine, they weren't there. But it was a lot of fun to see the place. It is actually much smaller than it appears on television. It is also in a not so great location.

Your pictures turned out great! The hotel looked beautiful. Too bad you didn't get to see the "old man" at the pawn shop!
