A Weekend in Las Vegas Part I

Last week ma chere sister Alyson came for a visit on her way back home from another semester at college...needless to say, we hit the town!

The fountain at Bellagio is always my number one spot when people come into town to visit. They are amazing! The rush-swoosh sound of the water shooting out of the ducts is like small rockets launching into the air.

They play music with it, choreographing the water to the sounds. If you've seen Ocean's Eleven you probably have a good idea of this.

The many faces of the wee babe. Not so wee anymore!

The Paris casino

Ah, reminds me of the good ole days in La Paris!

Inside the casino/hotel it looks like you're walking down the streets with cloudy blue skies overhead and street signs and cobblestones..

You'll notice there are no clocks or windows ANYWHERE. Nothing to give you any sense of how much time has passed since you came in. Smart one.

Believe it or not, this is the check in desk/foyer!

I want this to be the first floor of my house! This is also where Aaron and I went to see the Nutcracker performed a few Christmases ago.

It wouldn't be Paris without the Arc de Triomph and some shopping!

How 'bout a famous ex-pat? I always considered Hemingway so old and boring to read..The Old Man and the Sea? Hit me over the head! But I've devoured two of his books over the weekend so I don't know what else to say...he's now on my high list for books worth reading!


  1. This looks like a super fun trip. I love the architecture and the beautiful water And, good job getting M started early on the classics.

  2. That looks fun, we have done that too. Did you see the wax museum? It's a fun place to go! :D

  3. What Hemingway have you read?! Also... you guys live in Vegas? For some reason I thought you were in Arizona.

  4. J...beautiful pictures of everything. A had such a great time with you all. Thanks, again, for all you do. Loved all the pictures and the water show...spendid. Love that baby girl of yours..and the pictures of you two laying down, reading! Delightful!
