Trip to SIN CITY!...

Every once in awhile, Todd's job happens to be convenient.  Like when someone dies, and the family asks you to drive them to Las Vegas, and you get to take your wife with you!  YAY me!  Poor them...(really...he was a good man--he was not someone we knew, but tons of family who loved him and made the trip as well).  Mind you, that's about the only time his job has a perk attached.  Most of the time, it's a call during a date, or a movie, or sacrament meeting (always--so jealous when he gets to leave, does that make me a sinner?).  At least now, we expect it, and plan on it.  So, a few weeks ago, we went to Las Vegas for a short trip.  We drove over on a Sunday afternoon, Todd did the service Monday morning, (while I slept until NOON--#bestdayever) and we came home Tuesday morning.  We did, however, manage to have some fun in Sin City--good thing they're open ALL NIGHT!  We ate too much, stayed in the hotel we stayed in on our honeymoon (but didn't get the same room thank goodness--do you know the room we stayed in on our honeymoon had MIRRORS on the walls, AND ceiling?? Talk about YIKES!), saw a funny PG-13 comedy show, (Carrot Top--had some language, but man, our sides hurt we laughed so hard), gambled a little ($20, if you must know--and lost it all), rode some fun rides at Stratosphere--(no--we didn't bungee jump off the side of that building--but we saw some people doing it--are they INSANE???), and generally had a FABULOUS time!  I know what happens in Vegas, is supposed to stay in Vegas, but when you are boring and OLD like we are--what happens is generally fit to be on your blog--(most of it, anyway ;) HA!) so here are some pictures!

 See that pained look on my face? It's because I wore CUTE shoes instead of comfortable ones!  Duh.  I forgot how much you walk in Vegas! 

 We found this place in the Luxor, and had to eat dinner there!  T & T--it's the BEST!  :)
Love the Vegas Strip at night--however, I think even Vegas is suffering in the Obama economy--there were a few whole casinos that were fenced in & boarded up (WHAT??), and everyone had like HALF their lights on! Geez--thanks Obama for that!
The rides on top of the Stratosphere are totally worth doing--go at NIGHT though--the view is fantastic! We were there around Midnight!  :)
So many lights can make a camera go CRAZY!  I thought these pics were too cool to throw out though!  Love it!
