Vegas Baby!

For our 8th Anniversary in March we went to Vegas for the second year in a row. Mainly because I really wanted to see "O", but also because it's such a quick and easy getaway we had to do it just one more time. This year we couldn't have asked for better weather!


Of all the times I've been to Vegas, I've never been to the Flamingo Gardens. It was a much needed retreat on a very warm, sunny day. Even though it isn't large, per se, it was a nice contrast to the hustle and bustle of the strip. There were lots of benches to rest on in the shade while we listened to the waterfalls.
If you've ever wanted a different view of the Bellagio fountains, the Eiffel Tower across the strip is the place to do it! The fountains provided lovely entertainment during a delicious lunch.
It also "whetted" our anticipation for the show that night in the beautiful hotel where we saw "O" (from the french word "eau" meaning water). We were only 8 rows back and didn't even get a drop! What a rip-off!

This would make a great tourism brochure for Vegas, at least for people like me. I'm pretty much anti-Vegas, but after reading this...

This is a cute layout! (and easy to see the pics and read the posts :)

Those are some lovely pictures! Especially the one without Matt in it. JUST KIDDING! You guys look great and it looks like you're in paradise! Glad you got a get away. Maybe someday we'll do something (anything!)for an anniversary! (not blaming Greg, it's both of us--and this year he moved us into a house for our ten year).
