Viva Las Vegas

We had SO much fun in Vegas! When we started looking into flights to Cleveland we quickly realized how much cheaper it would be to fly out of Vegas. I didn't love the idea of having to drive 4-1/2 hours to get there...I mean come on...wasn't that one of the perks of living in a big city now...we didn't have to worry about driving long distances to the airport and having direct flights?! But given how much less expensive it was to fly out of Vegas we would be able to use vouchers we had from a horrible experience flying back to Cedar Rapids at Christmas to cover all 3 of our tickets PLUS I figured we could make a little trip out of it and I was sold. Viva Las Vegas!

We left Monday morning and arrived in Vegas by 1pm. We went directly to the Bellagio where we checked out their amazing atrium gardens that we under the sea themed. The girls LOVED it! Kate loved the clam and opened and closed and the mermaid and Millie loved the seahorses the most. I loved the jellyfish that hung from the ceiling! We checked out the dancing fountains out front and walked along the strip a bit. Kate was excited to see the Eiffel Tower and the girls loved these awesome water whirl tunnel tubes at the Crystals Mall. Oh and we got gelato and pain au chocolates which were amazing! We ended up staying at the Stratosphere (that's what we got on hotwire). We swam on the roof top pool and the highlight was going up to the observation deck. The girls loved looking out the windows at the lights...especially Millie!

Thanks Vegas for a good time! We had to wake up early to make our flight to Cleveland on Tuesday and off we went to Ohio!

They loved looking over the edge
