Vegas Vacation!!

Well, we're finally home from our vacation in sunny and HOT Las Vegas. And when I say hot, I mean hot! The temps never dropped below 100 degrees the entire time we were there! Deb was the big winner out of the group ( eight of us all together: Deb's parents, brother Chris and his wife Amy and brother Tim and his girlfriend Molly) as she won $1,200 on the slots! I was playing a machine next to her when she hit and she literally turned ghost white as those credits kept going up and up! My luck, on the other hand, wasn't as good. Overall, I think I lost about $650 which was not my plan at all! Oh well! I took the money to play with and that's what I did! In the end it was nice to be away from work for a week. I've posted a few pics but I think Deb's posted most of them on her facebook page so you may want to check them out on that site. Me, Deb and her parents did see the off Broadway show "Jersey Boys" at The Palooza Theater and it was a great. It's about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. It was very entertaining and the music was fun to sing along with. Next year I think we'll vacation on a beach somewhere so I won't lose so much money and it'll be a bit more relaxing! Take care!

Deb and I during the tour of Hoover Dam. Don't you love our hair! It was 105 degrees that day and we were standing 725 feet in the air. Needless to say, our hair couldn't stand up to the heat! :)

This is the inside of the Palooza Theater. They had strands of lights coming down that gave the illusion of raindrops falling. It was awesome!

We stayed the The Flamingo, one of the oldest hotels and casino's in Vegas.
