Las Vegas Road Trip

We had such a fun long weekend, we took a nice little road trip to Las Vegas. I like to go there every couple of years just to walk around, eat, eat, and eat. :) My online business has been doing so well (yay!!) that I wanted to celebrate! So I packed my husband, sister, and mom in the car (my dad had to work, boo!!) and treated them to a weekend in Las Vegas.

They had just finished the bridge over Hoover Dam so we did some sightseeing there and got to walk right over the bride. There were some awesome views there!

This time we stayed at the Mandalay Bay. It's a gorgeous hotel!!

We received four complimentary all day buffet passes with our package, so that made for a very fun day. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner all buffet style. We all got our fill of prime rib, crab legs, and shrimp cocktail.

The weather was just starting to warm up fortunately, so we got to enjoy their beach area. They have a wave pool and a lovely lazy river with fountains. We loved the pool area!!

We showed my mom and sister around some of my favorite spots in Las Vegas along the strip. The Venetian...

And the dancing fountains at the Bellagio! I just love those things!

The fountains were a hit with us... we watched the show 3 different times.

We ended our trip with a visit to Paris and we got our picture taken in front of the Eiffel Tower when it was all lit up! Now if only we could visit the REAL city of Paris sometime soon. :)
