Viva Las Vegas!

Last Friday Zack came into our room begging me to drop everything (which, wasn't much) and consider going on a road trip with some of his friends to Las Vegas!  I caved, of course, and soon we were off!  This was Elise's first trip anywhere and she was a great traveler!  Here is Zack telling Elise she is about to go to 'Sin City'.  As you can see, she was excited!
It was a quick trip but a lot of fun!  Friday night we had a barbecue at our friend David's house.  It was delicious!  David's Dad was also able to score us a room at the Rio Casino so we got to stay there in luxury! 
Here is the view from our room out at all the other casinos.  This next picture shows how Elise felt about all the crazy people in Vegas....
Ha ha ha.  I love her cute little face!  Everyone would stare at her as we walked through the casino (because there is no possible way to stay at those hotels without walking through the casino!). 
Saturday we got dressed and ready to swim!  Except that the water was freezing!!!  But we had fun getting dressed up and pretty in our suits!  Don't you love Elise's swim suit?  Thanks for the hand me down Aunt Natalie!
Saturday night we went to a yummy buffet in a brand new casino called The Cosmopolitan which is right by the Bellagio and City Center of Vegas.  The buffet is called The Wicked Spoon.  If you have the chance to eat there, go!  The dessert bar in particular was to die for!  Yum!!
Here is the whole gang out to eat and gain 10 pounds.  I'm pretty sure we all did too!
The Cosmopolitan had all sorts of weird art work.  I thought it would only be proper for Elise and I to take a picture in the giant pink high heel!
Sunday we woke up and went to Church and had some authentic Chinese cuisine prepared by David's grandma.  It was great!  We headed home after shortly after lunch. It was a fun trip while it lasted!
