S: Las Vegas April 2011
2: Vegas Trip #1: Christmas 2009 On a whim, Andrea booked a trip to Vegas to see Celine Dion's show which was closing two weeks later. We stayed at the Stratosphere and at the HIlton. We hung out at the Top of the World Bar to over look the strip, saw Celine at Ceasar's Palace, ate at the Cheesecake Factory, watched the fountain at the Bellagio, walked through the Venetian, and walked half the strip - boy our feet hurt! To get on the bus to ride back to the hotel, we had to have exact change. The only way to break change at the Paris was to put at $10 in the penny slots. We actually won money so our bus trip was free!
3: Vegas Trip #2: April 2011 This is the story of our second trip to Vegas. Mike was offered a chance to go to a router training class in Las Vegas. He invited me to join him on the four day trip. We left Omaha onTuesday at 5:00 and stayed at the Treasure Island Hotel. We returned Friday, April 29 - the day of the Royal Wedding. I woke up at 300 am to see Katherine's dress and then left the hotel at 6:00 to catch our flight home.
8: Mexican Dinner at Isla Restaurant at Treasure Island with amazing chips & salsa. We were tired after a 5:00 flight - felt like midnight to us. Went to be early since Mike needed to work the next morning.
9: Jim (via email): "You're out there somewhere in the great western desert of these here United States, relaxing in some brightly lit glass pained room-filled, bandit-filled; food filled palace" Andrea: "Nope looking at the mountains eating Krispy Kremes for breakfast"
