I'd love to tell you I thought it was fabulous and I had a wild time... but honestly I was in my room and ready for bed by 9:30! Yep. My kids don't even go to bed that early on a Saturday night.
This weekend was exhausting. Staying in 3 different time zones in 3 days will wear anyone down- quickly.
Not to say I didn't have fun- I had a good time- I saw the fountain out side of the Bilagio (now tuned to the Pink Panther) WAY cooler then I ever imagined.
From the dancers to the card slappers to the typical tourist with a camera around their necks (Yes- me included) it is a whole different world in itself. One that I would say is fun to see once or twice but definitely not my new vacation spot.
Everyone has there own idea of a good time and more power to them – maybe as I am getting older (NOT that I am admitting to that) my idea of fun isn’t partying until 3am anymore.
Of course I couldn’t have been to two more opposite places in one weekend. Utah you can hardly have a drink and Vegas at $14 for a martini- who can afford too?! I don’t like alcohol that much- I can be just as hyper and goofy on Pepsi.
I did stay at the Luxor (the pyramid looking place) it was neat and the adjoining room to mine seemed to be enjoying themselves with an all night party.
I also went on a hunt through every souvenir shop and tourist trap looking for all things but a Rubber Ducky that said Las Vegas. (No-we never found one) but the entire time I had that song that Bert and Ernie sing... "Rubber Ducky you’re the one... something something bath time is so much fun... something else and a little more..." stuck in my head. One of my loadmasters was on a mission to find his girlfriend’s daughter a Ducky that said Las Vegas on it... I finally convinced him she'd love a teddy bear just as much (I hope I was right!).
Needless to say it was quite the adventure.
