Vegas - The Strip

Monday was the first "official" day on the Vegas Strip.  We spent most of the morning getting ready at Erin's Aunt and Uncles house then headed into Vegas.  We wandered around the shop's at Caesar's Palace then went to the shops at the Venetian on a hunt for a clothes.  Not for me.  For Megan and Shelly. They both bought tickets for Phantom of the Opera.  Erin and I decided that (since we have seen Phantom before in London) we wanted to go see Cirque Du Soleil.  So we bought tickets.  Smack dab in the middle of the theater.  Since we had time to kill before the show we watched the Sirens/Pirates show at Treasure Island.  It was pretty cool.  Lots of flames and fireworks.

Venetian - Gondola Rides

Once the Siren's show concluded we watched Mystére - Cirque Du Soleil.  It was the most strange, bizarre, awesome, acrobatic, funny thing I have ever seen. I loved it!  I say that about a lot of things... but I really did LOVE it.   I would go see it again and again if I could.  I highly recommend seeing it if you come to Vegas!  And of course I bought souvenirs.

Erin & I in front of Caesar's Palace
Yesterday was pretty awesome too, if I do say so myself.  In the morning I was up before the other girls so I went down into the Casino then out to Starbucks for some hot chocolate and cinnamon swirl coffee cake. Yum.  Eventually, once everyone got up, Erin and I walked up and down the Strip.  We first wandered towards the Mirage, then over to the Venetian and down towards Harrah's/Imperial Palace then back across to Caesar's Palace.  And I may have bought ten dollars worth of Godiva chocolate. Shame on me.  But it's so good!

Once Erin and I were at Caesar's we meet up with the other girls and grabbed some lunch at the Cheesecake Factory.  Such yummy cheesecake!  I love the Reece's Peanut Butter Cheesecake. Yep. Yep.   After lunch we went to Express (a store in Caesar's) then stopped to watch the fountains at the Bellagio.  So awesome! There was even a beautiful rainbow.

Bellagio Fountains at Night

We then headed back to the hotel... so much walking!  Erin and Shelly grabbed a nap while Megan and I went down to the pool to soak up some sun.  Did I mention it was 75 degrees yesterday? Perfect pool weather.  Once we felt like we soaked up sun we all headed to the Buffet in the Treasure Island Casino (our hotel).

New York New York!

Haha. Oh buffets.  We had way too much fun in the buffet.  Seriously though.  We ate way too much food, had way to much sugar, and laughed till our muscles were sore.

New York New York Rollercoaster
After the buffet we came back to the room then (after a short time of laying on our beds digesting) headed down to New York New York to ride the roller coaster.  I was scared! I've never been on an upside down roller coaster... but it was awesome!  So much fun!  I think I would most definitely go on it again!

After completely screaming my head off we went and watched the fountains at the Bellagio.  So much cooler at night! I can't believe how high the fountains went! It was absolutely incredible!   I took lots of pictures.  :)  Then it was back to the hotel room and off to bed I went.  Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a night person.  So staying up till midnight each night was really been a challenge for me.  But I'm glad I'm having such a good time.

More Vegas today baby!
