Ten on the Tenth: Things I Did In Las Vegas

After last month's Ten on the Tenth about my plans for Las Vegas, Julie predicted that I'd be back this month with a partner post about what actually went on!  Well done Julie!!!  Despite everyone saying "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!" I have ten of our photos to share with you today: 

There was indeed plenty of neon and spectacle to enjoy every night:

Bellagio Fountains - Las Vegas

And Vegas was pretty amazing by day too:

Curved Escalator inside Caesar's Palace - Las Vegas

The food was interesting and tasty:

Outback Steakhouse - Las Vegas

(actually this isn't my picture;
somehow all 4 scrapbookers failed
to take a single photo!)
Memphis Sliders - Caesar's Palace - Las Vegas

along with the best fries I have ever
eaten!



As were the drinks:
Lunchtime cocktail at the Rio - Las Vegas
I don't always dress to match my cocktails!
There were several "firsts" during the week including a first helicopter ride over the strip at night-time followed by an early morning ride out to the Grand Canyon:

I managed to snaffle a few geocaches, both real and virtual:

And most importantly for a group of scrapbookers from the UK, there was a very successful trip to Michaels!

Can you tell we were excited?!

Oh that helicopter ride over the grand canyon is one of my "I'd love to do" things. We had an imax movie of one that the kids loved years ago, always figured the real thing would be better.

Glad you had a good time!

MonicaB said...

Looks fantastic. I got back from holiday late last night so I missed this month's 10 Things. I might copy your ideas in May and do 10 Things in France!
Great work.
