We got back from our trip last Saturday. I have been very busy with getting settled back in from our trip that I finally have time to write about it. Our trip was great it went by so fast! I can officially cross off #6 off my list:
6) Go to Las Vegas
We done so much on our trip, we went to Red Rock Canyon, and drove down to Grand Canyon National Park we spent a night there. The Grand Canyon is absolutely amazing and breath taking!
Here is a picture of Matt and I at the Grand Canyon:
We then went to Henderson, NV (Which is about 15 minutes outside of Vegas)and spent two nights at Green Valley Ranch Resort, which was absolutely beautiful. What was nice is there was a casino in the hotel, so we got to gamble some. And the hotel was AMAZING, it was such a fancy hotel. Matt did a nice job picking the hotels. We also went to a bar at the hotel and watched this really fun cover band called "Super Vegas Band". They were so talented! It was the best five dollars that I have spent for a concert. They did Michael Jackson's "Billy Jean" and it sounded just like the really thing, the song was wonderful.
After two nights at the Green Valley Ranch we went to the Hoover Dam and took a tour:
I learned a lot of history about the dam. It took them only 4 years to make the hoover dam. The workers would get paid only 4 dollars a day. They our also in the process of making a bridge, the bridge is going to be open at the end of October, so traffic will run through this bridge instead of the Hoover dam.
After the Hoover Dam we finally went to Vegas, and stayed two night there. I would definitely love to go back there again to spend more time, because there is so much to do there. We went to the wax museum and saw tons of wax stars. Some of them looked so realistic, that I seriously thought I was standing right next to the real thing. I even got to stand right next to my celebrity twin Brittney Spears. Well I don't think I look like her, though I have had many people tell me I kind of resemble her. What do you think?
One thing I could not get over is how crowded Vegas is, even at the end of September, there are so many people there. I loved the people that would stand on the street and sell "Lucky" water for a dollar. What is also neat is a bunch of the hotels have outside shows, such as a fire show, and a fountain show. I wished we would have won some big money in Vegas so I could have went shopping in some of the stores. They had some big expensive designers in some of the shops. I didn't even walk in any of them, because I knew I probably would cry just looking at the price tag. We did walk into a Tiffany's jewelry store, and they have such amazing jewelery there, of course I think the cheapest thing there was 1,000 bucks
So we had a really good time in Vegas, and I'm glad to cross it off the list. I don't know if Vegas exceeded my expectations. I think watching movies about Vegas, made my standards very high. But I still had a great time there. We didn't win any money. We probably lost only about 100 bucks. I would only stick to the penny slots. I actually kind of won some money on them.
Here are some pictures of Vegas:
I also ended up crossing two other things off my list while we were on our trip in Vegas. It wasn't planned, but it just so happened to be the way. So it is always nice to cross some extra things off this list. I'll post more about that later. Now I'm off to clean our bathroom, because it is really sad looking about being away for over a week. I think mildew and other nasty things are festering up in it. Well bye for now!
One thing I forgot to mention, is Vegas was doing some weird things to my hair! As you notice the picture of me with the wax Brittney Spears, my hair is flat and striaght. Well I didn't even use a flat iron on that. Apparently due to lack of humidity and what not I didn't have curly hair. My curls kept falling out! So I guess if I didn't live in Ohio I wouldn't have naturally curly hair. I kind of liked my hair like that in Vegas. I complained the entire time and said I hated it, but when I came back here, I realize how awesome it was not to have such frizzy and crazy hair. Oh vegas, I heart you. :)
