Have fun. I wish Nancy could be with you all!



I love the Bellagio! I could stare at the water show all day and night. It is especially pretty at night! Watching it on TV does not do it justice, you have to see it live! I am glad you got to experience that. Did you ever go see Love at the Mirage? I HAVE to get back to Vegas sometime to see that!!!

I hope you got a chance to see that Bocelli and Elmo song I posted. It's, Time to Say Goodnight (of course the original song is "Goodbye", it's cute!) I love that song too, the real song and the kid version with Elmo! =)



I have heard of that guy! I definitely believe in that 100%! I should read the book sometime.
Hey CAH!
Yes, we did see LOVE!! What an experience!! That's my favorite cirque show! I went with Adrian on media night, and loved it so much that we treated my Mom to it, too, when she visited. I grew up listening to the Beatles because of her, so it was only right! amazing show!

I'll definitely check out the video but I'll have to wait until Adrian is off of the computer. Thank God for this phone, or else I'd never be able to check in with you guys! LOL!

Wayne had mentioned that he took the day off work so we can celebrate my birthday today. We had lunch at Benihana with my mom, son and granddaughter. Wayne and I then went to the mall for a little bit. We had a very nice time! Now just relaxing. We wanted to take the bikes out today but it's cold and damp outside. We might head back out in a little while or just stay in to play some games and watch a movie.

I hope you all have a great day!!!

Then we went back years later, they took the boats out and remodeled the inside. It's still pretty but I don't think it's near as impressive as it was when it first opened.

I also took pictures of the hotel New York New York when it was under construction. It was just a torn up mess and my family wondered why I would want a picture of it. I also took pictures of Paris while under construction one year. That one is pretty too! I told them it's kind of neat to come back later and take more pictures of it finished, before/after thingy! I think it's kinda cool! lol... We did go back, that New York New York is nice and even rode that coaster around a few times. Paris is nice too!


Busy week for you! Have fun!!!
Yes, Vegas is always under construction & changing!!

My friend just scaled the Luxor for charity! How cool is that?! She's much braver than I am, though.

Adrian's mom loved the NY NY roller coaster! she wanted to go on it over & over and she is not a thrill seeker, so it was endearing that she had such a blast w/ it.

It'll be fun to go back & be a tourist it'll be a vacation next time around!

Lucky, lucky, LUCKY!!! It's no secret that I'm a die hard Beatles fan! I have seen Paul a couple of times. Wayne and I traveled to Houston this past November to see him. (You probably already knew that, we have mentioned it on here). We try to see any tribute band that comes around. Rain (Beatles tribute band) is the best one ever! They are the ones that were on Broadway. We seen them 4 times. I have the Love CD and they did a fine job the way they put all the music together and slightly changing up a few tunes and the way they "mashed up" a few songs. I love that whole CD. I will go to that show soon! I am glad you all enjoyed it!

I am in hopes to see Ringo live sometime. He really don't cover as much Beatles music as Paul does but, he's a Beatle! I want to see him! He just never travels anywhere close by us!

That is awesome to scale the Luxor! Not something I would do!

My daughter got married in Vegas and honeymooned at the Excalibur. They stayed in a room that overlooked that roller coaster. They said real late at night when they were sleeping they would hear the screaming as the coaster went by. From total silence to "ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh" then back to silence, it went on for hours! They had a tough time sleeping.
