Viva Las Vegas!

I have never been to Vegas. Yes, I know, I have lived in Arizona off and on for 15 years and have always wanted to go. Somehow, I convinced Steve to drive home via the Vegas route – with enough time to explore and spend the night.

We arrived around 4pm, checked into the Excalibur Hotel – which is HUGE!


This gave us enough time….actually, plenty of time to get settled, grab some dinner and EXPLORE. I can’t say there were many kids in Vegas – just mainly couples. Great people watching place, that’s for sure.

We walked the strip…..and walked…and walked. It was a WARM night – low 100’s….but hey, we’re from AZ, we can handle it.

The monorail was free and took us to the 3 hotels next to us. We rode it a few times….the boys liked how fast it went.

And who needs Disneyland anyway, when we have these guys….July Vacation 2010 418

Lots of character’s dressed up. Pretty scary, actually. We passed them by QUICKLY.

But my kids most FAVORITE PLACE EVER….


They LOVED M&M World. Four stories of nothing but M&M merchandise (grammie, you would love it). July Vacation 2010 422

More pictures as the strip was starting to light up more…

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book
in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but
other than that, this is great blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
