We rolled into Vegas around 4pm-ish on Saturday. We got ready and headed downtown for the night. The weather was warm, in the 80's and in the 70's at night. Perfect weather! We walked around, gambled a little and ate dinner at the buffet in the Monte Carlo. We got back to the hotel early and rented "Step Brothers" which was really funny!
Sunday morning we ate some breakfast and then headed to the Hooters Casino to play a little blackjack and poker. Troy had the gambling luck on this trip. I couldn't win anywhere I went - I guess it just wasn't my time! Troy dragged me away from the penny slots to go check out the Titanic Exhibit at the Tropicana. It was really cool how it was set up, well worth it! They gave us boarding passes for the Titanic with an actual passengers name on it. At the end of the exhibit, you were supposed to check and see if your passenger was a survivor. My passenger survived, but Troy's didn't.
After the show, we walked along the strip checking out different casinos. We walked around the Bellagio for quite some time, watched $100 minimum bet blackjack tables and sat in shock while people threw away $200-$300 a hand and then win it back. We also watched the Bellagio fountain show, which most of you have probably seen but I have to do something with this video!
The next day we woke up and headed back to the Bellagio before driving home. Troy had read that the World Poker Tour was having a tournament here and wanted to see if he could see any famous poker players. He LOVES watching poker. In fact, as I'm writing this blog, he is watching poker. This is my background music :) He was so happy, like a kid at Disneyland. We stopped by In-N-Out Burger for lunch (which was a must) and drove home. It was overall a really fun trip with my hubby! Here are some more pics, I didn't take that many:
Troy in front of this cool, but fake, pond in the middle of some shops. Every half hour it would "rain" and "thunder" here.
At the Bellagio. We didn't see "O" but it is a cutesy picture.
I had to go back to work today while Troy had the day off. We went to Madelines for a steak dinner to finish our celebrating. It's crazy to look back and remember all that we've been through in our marriage. It's a good thing I love him so much!!
