Vegas! Baby!

Nobody ever said, "Vegas is like Time's Square on crack." This place is fabulous. I can't believe it took me 33 years to get here. I love this place. My legs and feet hate this place. Maybe being three + months pregnant isn't ideal, but I am still having a blast.

Some of my thoughts:
*Buffets are not that great
*Blake and I cannot take our eyes off the girls who dance in the casinos on top of the card tables
*New Year's weekend is very busy
*The hotel rooms and kid arcades don't actually smell like smoke
*They have Hudson Newsstands in the NV airport
*Three days is not enough time to check this place out. Actually, it is probably a good amount of time, but everything is so dang expensive there is no way to do it all in the time you are here.

A not-so-great Elvis:

Bumblebee on the street. Blake's dream come true:

One of my childhood favorites. Am I really the only person who loves Chuckie movies?:

The fountain show (short and semi-impressive) in front of the Bellagio. I really liked seeing this sight because it was featured on an episode of the Bachelorette. They made her and her date sit on a faux island in the middle of the fountains during a show. The TV made it look fantastic, but in real life I can only imagine how uncomfortable that would have been. Awkward date for sure:

Our home away from home. Blake loves the castle theme. We are 5 stories up with a beautiful view of a brick wall (10 feet away), the pipe in the bathroom detached and sent sewer-smelling water all over our bathroom floor, and the bathroom has mold on the ceiling. Not the absolute worst (a place in Tahoe takes that cake) and not the best (we just stayed in a hotel in Fresno that tops my list):

My legs are begging for the Monorail tomorrow so I hope we get to incorporate that piece of transportation.
