My Mom, her best friend Cathy and I take a trip to Vegas almost every year. This year my mom and I stayed at the Stratosphere our first night then with Cathy at the Bellagio the next 3 nights. We went to the top of the Stratosphere and enjoyed the view, along with the crazy adventure rides up there! We didn't partake, just watched and laughed at the people. I was really tempted to do the SkyJump, but decided not to in the end.
The rest of the trip we just did our typical thing - gamble, drink, eat good food, relax by the pool, walk around the strip, etc. One of our favorite things though was sitting in Hyde bar at Bellagio. It had a great view of the Bellagio Fountains, so we sat there for a while enjoying some wine and watching a few water shows! After watching the fountains we had a very nice dinner at Prime Steakhouse in the Bellagio for our last night in Vegas.

My friend David and I drove to Las Vegas this weekend from Los Angeles (where we were both working on a project). He is a big rugby fan, being from Kenya, so I tagged along to see what all the fuss was about. Watching the Rugby Sevens games was actually really fun. I learned a lot about rugby (probably more than I ever cared to know) and had fun watching the Kenyan crowds sing and yell at the refs! On our way out of town on the last day we drove to the Hoover Dam. I had been to Vegas numerous times but had never made it over there, so he was pretty excited he got to take me somewhere I hadn’t been yet.
Too bad I didn’t have a “behind the scenes” of this foot picture - it was pretty funny. I was sitting on top of a trashcan, dangling my feet over the edge of the Hoover Dam while David held onto me for dear life! Got the pic though!
