Of course we had to have our picture taken in front of the famous, "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign. Did you know that there is a guy that stays there all day and will take your picture for you??? I had no idea. He works for tips, but I am sure that he makes pretty good money!
Gehrig loved watching the gondolas float by. He wanted a ride on one so badly. Hopefully we can go back sometime before we leave and get him a ride!
This is a real person, not a statue. I just had to have my picture taken with him (or her????)
Here I am in front of Serendipity 3 Cafe. I have always wanted to have a frozen hot chocolate at the famous Serendipity 3 Cafe in NYC. Serendipity, starring John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale, is one of my favorite movies! We didn't go in this time, but next time I hope to slip in at least long enough to enjoy a frozen hot chocolate!
Here are the boys in front of Paris!Our next stop was the Bellagio Hotel and Casino, famous for its fountains. The "water show," as Gehrig called it, was an amazing display of water choreographed perfectly to music! In our case, the complex water feature was set to "All that Jazz" one of the many excellent songs from my other favorite movie, Chicago!
Even the boys were mesmerized!
Colin loved the fountain!
My boys in front of Hard Rock! Gehrig especially thought that the humongous guitar was cool!Our next stop was New York, New York, a hotel and casino designed to look exactly like the NYC skyline, complete with the Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty. There is even a roller coaster that roars through the casino. Chris's mom and Aunt Jo took a ride on it for their 50th birthday! What a fun way to celebrate!
Once inside, we all enjoyed some New York style pizza...what else????Inside one of the deli cases was this tiramasu dessert! Oh I will be coming back for some soon! Our last stop was M & M world! I thought that I was in heaven, and so did Gehrig. There were four floors of M & Ms and M & M paraphernalia!
Being in Vegas, I thought that a sexy new nightie was in order...Just kidding!
We let Gehrig get some M &Ms.
Of all the brightly colored M & Ms he could chose from, he chose black, silver and white! Funny boy!
