Vegas Baby!!

Our trip to Vegas was awesome!!! It started out a little on the not-so-good side but it turned out excellent!!! We woke up at 4:15 Saturday morning so that we could be at the airport by 5:45 since our plane left at 6:52… we have an Air Force base in town and apparently the airmen are allowed more luggage than we are so this flight was “weight restricted”… it was dc and I and another girl waiting to be called to board… turns out due to the weight on the plane they only had room for one more person… she went… we caught the next flight, 4 hours later!!! But, we did get to sit by each other on the way to Vegas, if we would have made the 6:52 flight it didn’t look like we were going to have seats together… plus, we got vouchers for money off of our next flight, and dc said, you know we’ll use those vouchers, YAY for another trip!!! We ended up getting to Vegas about 2 hours later than we would have if we would have made the earlier flight, no biggie though… the only reason I was ticked was the fact that I got up at 4:15 on a Saturday morning. After that I was kinda worried that us not making the first plane was an omen of how the trip was to go… turns out I was worried for nothing. We had a phenomenal time. Vegas is awesome and beautiful and I would love to go back. Basically we gambled and ate, walked around, and I took a ton of pictures. Our hotel was beautiful!!! They had a river inside with gondolas floating down them that you could ride if you wanted too. We casino hopped all over the place. Oh yeah, we went to New York New York and rode the rollercoaster, that was so cool!!! I collected $1 chips from all the casinos we went too. There was so much to see and so much to do… we so needed more time and we both didn’t want to leave to come home to “reality”. I think the warmest it got the whole time we were there was about 72, they had a cool front blow in Saturday and it was so nice, we wore jackets the entire time. I only took over 130 pictures but don’t worry, I won’t post all of them, lol. You can find more Vegas pictures here.

so jealous! those are great pics, you and dc look very cute together! our ireland trip started out cursed, but ended up great. upon hearing that i couldn't board because of weight restrictions would've prompted me to say "is that a fat joke". :o) off to look at the othe pics!

Did you ride the gondola? It sounds so extravagant! I am happy it was not too hot there. I've heard it can be unbearable.

thank you, i think dc is adorable!!! Mannyed, i'm glad your Ireland trip turned out great even though it started out not-so-great!!!
No, we didn't ride the gondola... the line was always so long... like, crazy long!! one of the cab drivers said it's normally in the 90's there that time of the year so i was so glad it was cool!!!
