Travelin' Tuesday: Vegas

Vegas seems to be a second home for my family, I've lost count on the amount of times I have been.  In 2008 Chris joined us for his first venture to Vegas.


It's always interesting going to a destination that you have been to before, but experiencing it with a first timer.  We hit up all of the free shows, including the water show at Bellagio.  In all of my trips, I have never once stopped at the Vegas sign to take a picture.  You have to run across some traffic, but it was worth it.




Walking up and down the strip was a great workout, and perfect for photos.







When we're out in Vegas, we normally stick to the buffets but we made it a point to venture a little off the strip for Hard Rock.


Of course, no trip would be complete without a little casino action.


Chris planned a little date night while we were there that included a ride in the gondola at the Venetian and watching the improv of Second City. 


Have you ever been to Sin City?

  4. My family are HUGE HUGE HUGE Vegas people also. We (or rather just they now) go there at least 4 times a year. It's ridiculous I tell you! But they love it just as much each and every time!

    I visited LV a handful of times in my 20s but don't really have the bug to go back again. The smoky casinos are rough on me. That said I LOVE the shopping and the food!

    Love your fun photos!!

  8. That's exactly how they are! I haven't been back since this trip (to save for the wedding), but I'll be excited to go back again.
