Viva Las Vegas

 Larry had a few days off last week and we had no plans, but wanted to take advantage of his flexible schedule before he starts his new job. The morning of, we got on Hotwire, picked an incredibly affordable five-star hotel in Las Vegas, booked it for the next three nights, and hopped in the car.

I had never even heard of the Vdara (same hotel line as the Bellagio, but much more modern right next door), but we lucked out on booking a room there.  There is no Casino in the Vdara so no smokey loud rooms to dash through with our kids.  All the rooms are suites with kitchenettes (can you spot Creed grabbing a snack from the supplies we stocked the fridge with?).  Kitchens are pretty unusual in fancy hotels, but so helpful when you have young kids and you can keep snacks and milk on hand!
 The room was nice
The boys loved baths in the huge tub.
But our favorite part was probably the view.  Creed mentioned how excited he was to see the dancing fountains and the lights when we were checking in so they spoiled us with this view.  In case you were wondering, the Bellagio fountains are still magical after you see them 23 times.

Stephanie - I can't believe you were in Vegas last week. I was there May 8 - May 12. I wish I had known! We could have met up for dinner.

I hope things are going well for you.

Glad you had a fun trip but I think you accidentally mailed your family's souvenir shirts to my house! Don't worry, we will mail them back :)
