Hi guys, I just floated in from Vegas. My family decided that this year, instead of everyone traveling to my parent's house, we'd all fly to Vegas. We rented a house off of VRBO (Vacation Rental by Owner).
All in all, it was a great time. We did a decent amount of eating, played some games like Wise or Otherwise, saw a couple of shows (magic, and a Cirque show), and OK so we gambled. My favorite slot machine was "Wheel of Fortune," and I did pretty well on it. I was playing the quarter slots and hit the 500 coin jackpot once, and the 400 coin one this morning in the airport. I also had a great time shopping at Mandalay Bay. I'm planning on posting about that on Ruby & Caroline this week.
So here are a couple of artsy (or possibly ridiculous) shots from the trip.
Me, by the pool in the backyard. We like to take fake "glamor shots":
At one casino (The Orleans), I ordered a chicken sandwich, prepared Gluten Free. The waitress said "Oh, OK, bun on the side," and I half thought she was kidding:
Surreal lighting at The Tropicana produced by the sunlight bouncing off of other buildings:
These leaves were below the banister in the house we rented, very odd, but made for a decent picture:
OK, and only in Vegas - dog toys in the shape of bras, panties, and briefs. I bought the black and white bra for my sister's dog. Any guesses on what that brand name is in the bottom right hand corner?
