The City of Lost Wages (Las Vegas 10.09)

Today's 2nd adventure involves me having the swine flu in Sin City!

Can you tell how long these blogs are overdue? I'm determined to get caught up today! We spent a lovely weekend in Vegas for a dear friend's birthday, and despite my self-diagnosed swine flu, we had lots of fun :) Besides eating a buffet for nearly every meal and sleep depriving ourselves in a penthouse packed with 15 of our closest friends, it was a fantastic photo opportunity.

View from our penthouse

The city that never sleeps

I saw Holly Madison walking her dog at Planet Hollywood.. and I chickened out of asking for a photo :(

View of our hotel, the Bellagio

Everyone's a photog now... glad I have friends to practice with

Fountain by night

Fountain by day

When no one was looking, we took this home as a souvenier :)

Hanging out at the mini Bellagio

I need to broaden my knowledge of flowers... anyone know what these are called?

Anyone who's been to Vegas knows where this is... do you?

The Venetian ceiling... Da Vinci said he would come back to life to paint our ceilings for our next house

Couldn't miss this opportunity to snap this picture... I love and miss u guys!

Leisurely gondola ride

Inside or outside?

Uh oh...

On a sidenote, we saw a homeless fellow shamelessly scooping up all of the change from the Caesar's fountain. He took all of those people's well wishes out of the fountain ... then hurried off to try his luck at a casino. Maybe those people's wishes will turn into fortunes! Now that's someone with ambition if you ask me!
