tell us a story, i know you're not boring...


(view of the strip from the top of the eiffel tower)

ah, yes. there are always interesting times in vegas. we packed in a lot during our short stay there, and i think i'm still recovering. lol.

to sum it all up, it involved: "are you guys married?" (riiiight...) lots of pumpkin spice lattes. the bellagio buffet, crab legs, lobster ravioli and 83579793 desserts. lots of pumpkins and scarecrows. crazy winds, an annoying yapping street preacher, and a canceled bellagio fountain show. rain. watching the dodgers win the NLDS!!! :D (we caught the last 2 innings or so) late-night pina coladas, spinach & artichoke dip, and buffalo wings. sunday morning football. forgetting sarah marshall. quiche, steak sandwiches, mimosas, and patio dining at mon ami gabi (i highly recommend it for brunch). an uneaten crepe. an eiffel tower pina colada. dressing up. dinner at penazzi (also highly recommended). walking...lots of walking. cruising through the venetian, palazzo, ginormous vases, the wynn, and waterfalls. the bellagio fountains - finally. the fake eiffel tower (which was actually really cool). the bellagio fountains again, from 560 feet above the ground (the best way to see them, in my opinion). more walking. "autentic" irish food, and semi-convincing irish accents. football-shaped strawberry daquiris. spicy chicken sandwiches, happy meals and apple pies. sharks, lizards, and fish. fish & chips and caramel cone ice cream. video poker, wheel of fortune, and a ginormous slot machine. lions, daquiris, and jello shots. a ginormous pepperoni pizza.

it was lots of good times...although i don't care to go back to vegas for a while, i think :)

anyhow. here are a few pictures!






...and i miss him.

have a good one :)

Almost every time I read your blog I get hungry. Why is that? =) It sounds like you had a great time on your trip. I've never been to Vegas, but it's VERY popular with the Hawaii crowd. LOVE that first pic, by the way.
