This weekend we went to vegas. It was my first time there and I was really excited about it. We stayed at PH towers at westgate on the 24th floor, room 2430. We made it to vegas by noon, and got showered and ready for the day. The room was really nice. It was a 1 bedroom suite and included a kitchen, living area, bedroom and bathroom. It was amazing. The view was a "pool view." In the bedroom it had a jucuzzi tub right beside the bed. On Saturday we started out by going over to the cosmopolitan for lunch. We ate at holsteins. I had a hamburger and steak fries.









I loved how the fries came in the little bucket. The burger was delicious as were the fries!

 


After lunch we walked around the casino at the Cosmopolitan and gambled a little bit. The first slot machine I played was a goldfish game. I did not win at all on this game. We continued to walk and gamble for a little while. Then we moved on and continued down the strip. We were enjoying the beautiful weather. The only thing I wasn't enjoying were those people that were on every street corner that flipped out prostitutes cards with pictures of nude girls along with phone numbers. I avoided making eye contact with every single one of them, yet they'd just stick their flyers/cards right in your face regardless. The evening continued and eventually we met up with Brandon's brother and his fiance along with one of her friends. They were staying at the luxor. On the way to the luxor I encountered my first moving sidewalk. It was thoroughly amusing. We played a few games while were waiting for Chris, lindsey & Lindsay. After they got there they got checked in, we went and saw their room and then went back down to the casino while the girls changed/got ready. Then we went to get them some food. We stopped and waited on them outside on the strip. There were people dressed in many, many different character costumes such as buzz/woody. While we were waiting we took a picture together.






It was so nice to be with him as myself and not a mom for 3 days.

After they got their food we all went up to our room and hung out and relaxed after an afternoon full of walking around our legs and feet thanked us. We then went back out and gambled at various casino's. Brandon won $135 from gambling at a game we had no idea how it worked. It was nice and helped bring us back even to what we started the day with. After that we decided to call it a night and head back up to the room.

I decided I wanted to try out our jacuzzi tub. It took forever to fill up and was loud draining but it felt AMAZING to me.  I was completely relaxed and slept all night once I finally hit the bed. However I woke up at 6:30ish which is not normal. I attributed it to my anxiety. I was just wanting to keep going constantly.

Sunday morning we woke up and got showered & dressed then we hit the strip. After breakfast we had played a slot machine and won $35.00 which pretty much paid for breakfast minus $6. (Breakfast buffet was $41 total for the two of us). That morning we learned how to play craps. It was a lot of information but I loved seeing the guy explain it. It took about an hour but it flew by fast and I pretty much understood everything he had to say. It seems like a fun game to play and hopefully next time we're in vegas we'll be able to play! We also went up the eifell tower that morning. The view from the top of the tower was amazing. It was beautiful weather too. Nice and cool. After the eifell tower we continued walking around. That day we came back to the hotel room around 5:30 and I took a bath and then napped. We went back out at around 7:30 or 8ish that night. We wanted to go to dinner and see the sirens show at Treasure Island, but because we had wanted to wait for his brother and his brother was taking a little longer than expected we didn't make the sirens show. Dinner was delicious. We dined at "Gilley's" right by treasure Island. It was delicious. I had a hamburger and their regular fries. They were really busy, and the waitress had way too many tables so unfortunately brandon didn't get a refill or offered a refill til we were already done and about to leave.

Monday was a relaxing day and a day we used to get our souviners. Overall I really really enjoyed this vacation and can't wait to go back! There's still LOTS that we didn't get to do this time that I will want to do next time.
