Viva Las Vegas

We just got back from sunny and warm Las Vegas.  We had 5 nights there and we crammed in everything we could possibly do in that time!  Our main reason for going was a dance workshop.  Princess Belle attended Camp Pulse a 2 day dance workshop.

Dancing at the competition was Asia.  She is the youngest competitor on Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition.  Princess Belle was pretty excited about that!

We also did a lot of sightseeing and a huge amount of walking! First off was this display of winter which we thought was pretty funny.

Don't I wish our snow was just bubbles!  It was fun and we giggled over this.

We went and saw Criss Angel and all I can say is that it was a huge disappointment and I would never recommend it to anyone {not even a huge fan}!

This was the only picture to remember this waste of time.  We decided to pass on the $80 pictures they were selling in the lobby. It seemed like no one was buying them!

We went to the strip a few times and stopped in at the coke store to experience coke products from around the world.  I am glad we live in North America as some of these flavors were absolutely the most disgusting thing you have ever tasted.  One was named the Beverly and it was the most bitter taste I thought we might toss our cookies!

While strolling around we saw this guy and he was a spot on impression.  He made me laugh!

We had a brief stop on a NYC step.

One night we ventured over to the Eiffel Tower and the views were amazing.  Princess Belle saw a proposal and was pretty thrilled about that.  The lady was so excited and was shaking and she dropped the ring!  Yikes we all heard it ping when it hit the ground I was scared it was going to drop but it didn't.

Our hotel

The Strip

We took in a much better show called Vegas! the show.  It was a great night and we enjoyed it.

We also went to Madame Tussuad's wax museum and that was a lot of fun.  I was surprised at how real the eyes looked.  Hopefully, here is the closest that one of my daughters will get to this character.

One day we also hit Freemont Street in the day and took in the sights.


From the summer

All made out of jelly beans! I loved it!

Just had to go in

Is this not the most pretty light?  I was very surprised where this was located.  Can you guess?  One hint  there was also fresh flowers on every table.

That was Vegas and by the time we got home we were all exhausted!
