Vegas trip April 12-14 2013

While we were at work on Friday April 12th we both turned to each other and said that we needed to get out of town. We left quick and drove down to Las Vegas. As a kid I remember the drive to Vegas being the longest trip ever but it was a nice drive. We left around 2pm and showed up there around 7ish Vegas time. Some of the best times I have ever had with Shaileen is on long drives. Just sitting and talking is the best and what is even better is when we find a song that we can jam to!

It was incredible going from 40 degree weather to 85 degree weather even at 7ish in Vegas!

We decided to stay at the Stratosphere because they had pretty good rates and we knew it was a decent hotel because we stayed there about 2 years ago.

Right after we got there we jumped on the bus and drove up the strip to the Flamingo because we wanted to see the show Legends again. We saaw it a couple of years ago and loved it. It even came with a buffet included in the price.

After the show we were pretty tired so we got on the bus and drove back to the hotel to get some good sleep so we could really enjoy the next day. Here is a photo of Shaileen in front of the bus stop.

When we got back my stye was really bothering me and I had it for about 1 1/2 weeks by then so I decided that it was time to pop it. Just look at it, can you blame me. You can see the video below of my trying to pop it. the only thing is that it was a waste because I went to the doctor the following Monday and had it cut out of my eye anyways. OUCH

If you are queazy at all iIwould not recommend watching this.

We woke up the next morning bright and early and it was absolutely beautiful. This is our view from the 20th floor of the hotel.

We went to check out the 1/2 price ticket kiosks that they have and saw that the America's Got Talent show was there. It was a pretty easy choice, mostly because some of the other shows were way out priced. We were really pleased with the show.

The last couple of times that we have gone to Vegas we have made it a tradition to wake up Sunday morning and go to the brunch at Harrahs hotel and Casino. It was really good but I am not sure a buffet was the best idea with a 6 hour drive ahead of us. HAHA

It was a really nice get away even though it was really quick. We decided that we needed to take advantage of the time that we are able to make impulsive decisions to leave town on a whim.
