Vegas Vacation

After a very tubulent flight, we got home from our Las Vegas vacation on Monday morning at approximately 5:05 a.m. It was a great trip but exhausting between the staying up late every night, getting up early every morning and the 3-hour time difference. We were still beat three days later!

It was hotter than blazes there. The temp was over 100 everyday and the sun was relentless.

I wanted to spend a lot of time outdoors, especially because they had a great lazy river and wave pool,

but it was hard to stay out there for any length of time without feeling like you were getting scorched!

We did manage to see some sights. Went to the top of the Stratosphere to take some awesome night pictures of the strip.

Went downtown for the Freemont Street Experience.

We visited the Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage where they had three white tiger cubs who were all sleeping;

and the cutest little baby dolphin (click on to enlarge).

Had dinner one night at the Hard Rock Cafe.

And finally we went to Red Rock Canyon which was really breathtaking.

It was a lot of fun.
