Viva Las Vegas

This past weekend we headed down South for a little weekend getaway. Zachary's brother has a vacation home in St. George and was so nice he let us use it for the weekend. On Saturday we headed to Las Vegas to spend the day there and had so much fun! I had never been to Las Vegas before so there was definitely a lot to do and see, I don't know that I could have handled much more than a day there though, a lot of it is pretty disgusto! We walked around and saw the different things there are to see, saw a show, and of course ate at a buffet, which was delish! All in all it was just nice to get away for a weekend together and enjoy some warm weather!
Zachary has a small obsession with these "Claw" games. Ever since we have been married, whenever he sees one anywhere he has to play, and he has NEVER WON! He always insisted that he used to win them all the time, I'm still not so sure about that statement, but this weekend he redeemed himself and his luck returned. Sad to say his luck only returned for that brief moment that night in Las Vegas!

We went to a show called "Stomp Out Loud." It is where they use all different things like brooms, trashcans, keys, and their hands and feet to make music. It was pretty cool, but maybe lasted just a little too long!



This was one of my favorite things, the fountains at the Bellagio. They were synchronized to the country song "This Kiss" and it just made me so happy to watch them!

We thought these gardens were pretty cool, it is amazing what they can do with flowers!

I have to agree about your hair. It is always SO cute! Those gardens and fountains look awesome. I am glad that you took pics so we could enjoy them too. Oh and Addy's cupcakes are my favorite too!

Looks like fun. I haven't been down there for quite awhile, which is okay by me, you can definately only handle so much of vegas. The Bellagio is my favorite too.

Looks like a fun weekend!! I agree that Vegas is pretty nasty. It is also exhausting walking the strip all day! But it is way fun to go to shows and see all the cool hotels!

kari, you and Zac are so funny. first of all, Chris has the same obsession with those claw machines. He always has (well since he worked at a pizza place that had one when he was 16). We need to get together soon.

Kim & Devin said...

Wow that looks like such fun! I have never been to Vegas either! (Well now you have...so you beat me!). I think it is something that I should experience at least once, right? Devin said he would take me for my birthday and then he never did. So sad.

We watched Ocean's 13 last night and Ben said, "we gotta go to Vegas sometime soon." Just to look at stuff, it's a neat place to visit. We have some friends down there we could see too. And I agree that winter's the time to visit! It's so dang cold here in Utah! Glad you were able to get away.
