Vegas Baby!!

It's hard to believe the vacation that I have looked forward to for so long has come and gone. My two friends from high school and even before (Jennie in orange and Kari in blue), decided we would take a "GIRLS VACATION".
The first day we spent much of the day traveling to Vegas, but had just as much fun there as we did IN Las Vegas. I picked up Jennie in Santaquin, UT and Kari in St. George. We checked to our hotel, The Luxor, then hit the strip looking for discount tickets for a show.
We found tickets for Le Reve. It's written by the same guy who does Cirque De Soleil.
IT WAS FANTASTIC!!! It was like gymnastics, acrobatics and diving all rolled up into some very fit individuals. Amazing strength. We weren't allowed to take pictures during the show, so this is a picture of how it looked at the end.
The Las Vegas strip at night is so neat! Here is the view of New York, New York.

When we got back to the hotel and got ready for bed, Jennie realized that she had forgotten her toothbrush. So she improvised...yes, it's a cotton swab with toothpaste!!

This is the picture of INSIDE the Luxor! It was really cool although we never got used to the elevators that seems to be running on a diagonally.

Here is the outside of the Luxor. Pretty cool with the transformer on the outside of the building.

On our last night, we hit the outlets on the north side of Vegas. My good friend Suzanne (who lived in Omaha previous to moving to Las Vegas) met us to go shopping then to dinner. We went to The Cheesecake Factory. We had a lot of fun visiting and filling ourselves full of food. We then went back to the hotel and watched some of the festivities going on inside the casino part of our hotel. It was most fascinating!

Me and Suzanne! Miss you Suzanne. Thanks for spending some time with me.
