Las Vegas

For Luke's birthday we went to Las Vegas, specifically to see the cirque de soleil show, O. Thurday night we drove to Primm and arrived about 3am and slept in a bed with sheets made of cardboard, I'm sure of it. Friday, we ate ourselves into oblivion at the Rio's World Buffet. After a recovery nap, we made our way to the Bellagio dressed in our finest! The entrance to the O Theater has tons of artwork inspired by the show and costs about the amount of a down payment for a home in Southern California (Luke and I had a hard time resisting a purchase, believe me!) Instead, we had fun taking pictures mimicking their poses.

The actual O show was quite impressive. The performers did some incredible stunts, beautiful dances and some were very funny. The stage was amazing in that sometimes it was a pool, and other times it was a solid stage. I've never seen a show like it.

Saturday, we visited a college roommate of mine who just gave birth to her first son. What a cutie! It was fun to chat with her, and feed the baby a bottle and burp it! Our friends, the Vreekens also joined us for the day in Vegas.

We enjoyed stuffing ourselves with pizza at CiCi's, getting painted tattoos and spending the afternoon at the Silverton Hotel waiting to catch a glimpse of their mermaid. It was a grand day, finished off by deep friend Oreos and Twinkies. I'm surprised we all made it through without any heart attacks!

  1. Mermaid? Please tell me there were mermen as well. Actually, no, I think I'm opposed to merfolk in general.
