Sigh, coming home from a trip always makes me so depressed. I don't know if its the unpacking, the laundry, the fact that I have to go to work tomorrow or all three that makes me so super sad but it never fails.
We had a really nice time on our vacation, if fact parts of it turned out way better than we had expected. We ended up going to Las Vegas and to Big Bear. I know what you are going to say, stange combination right? Well, it really was. Origionally we had just planned on going to Big Bear. We were all set to stay in My Aunt and Uncles cabin. (THANKS UNCLE BILLY & AUNT SUSI!!) However, life got in the way and we needed to head out to Vegas. Our curse turned out to be a blessing because we ended up having a blast in Vegas. What turned out to be a one night stay turned into a two night stay, in fact we would have stayed longer had we had the extra cash.
After worrk on Thursday Dan and I headed out to Vegas. Luckily Dan has a bit of a lead foot so it only took us 3 1/2 hrs instead of 4 1/2. Thursday we took care of our business so we got to play the rest of the night. It was fun just to hang around the hotel and play roulette, poker and varous money sucking machines. I do have to say the one thing that was a let down was the fact that the casino didn't use coins for their machines. Instead they printed you out a little card with your winnings. They did keep the sound of coins, but it was never the less a let down. Thursday night we were having so much fun we promptly booked a room for the next night.
I was really shocked at how nice the rooms were for the price. Here is the view from our room:
Friday we had plans to see the Shark Reef exhibit at the Mandalay Bay. We spent the afternoon walking between the Luxor and the Mandalay Bay. It was such a nice relaxing time.
Some pics from the Luxor and the Mandalay Bay.
So I am tired of blogging, I'll post more tomorrow.
