Vegas, Baby!

We arrived in Las Vegas yesterday, around 11:00 am, when the temperature was already in the 100s. We grabbed a quick bite to eat and then checked into the hotel (because it was roughly the same price to stay in a two-bed/two-bath apartment with a full kitchen and living area as it was to stay in a poorly reviewed RV park), so the boys could play in the pool while we had a couple of minor repairs done on the RV. Later, we hit The Strip, popping into Treasure Island, Caesar's Palace, and The Venetian, before finally ending up at Cravings, The Mirage's buffet.

Today, we visited Excalibur, The Luxor, and Mandalay Bay. But we spent most of our time at New York New York, where the older boys rode the roller coaster for hours and Clay played in the arcade and the rest of us enjoyed coffee at a "sidewalk" cafe.

Tonight, we headed down to Freemont Street, which is a totally different Vegas experience. We saw the famous light show and a number of interesting people, including two Elvises, quite a few show girls, a man in handcuffs, a couple of shirtless cowboys with curious money storage techniques, and tummy flying zipliners, just to name a few. This is such a crazy city, but it is fun and gives us plenty of things to talk about!
