So Cory and I went to Vegas this last week. We flew down on Saturday the 12th and back home on Tuesday the 15th (Happy Birthday to me!) Had an absolute blast. Looked at casinos, did a little gambling, and went to see O at the Bellagio- AWESOME! We saw my friends Steve and Aubrey since they live there now.

This is the Enterprise at the Star Trek Experience at the Hilton- it was pretty cool. Two rides- one Borg and one Klingon! Lots of history and costumes in the way in.

Borg- the middle guy's head moved- creepy!

My favorite Hotel/Casino the NY NY. It even has roller coaster! The pic below is of a fine Irish pub in the Casino called the Nine Fine Irishmen and it has a band called Ri Ra that just was awesome...Seven Drunken Nights was the best!!! So the guy at the door to the pub carded me...thank you very much! Before he saw my ID Cory said "so it's her birthday (it was a little after midnight). How old do you think she is?" The guy said "22 or 23 max"....HOW AWESOME! I decided this year I am being backwards...23 it is! I might be older than Cory but I look younger! lol

Cory and I outside the Venitian and inside the new hotel/casino Palazzo which is attached to the Venitian.

We drove out to Hoover Dam- it was only about a half hour outside of Vegas...I was in awe, I think the building in the side of the cliff would be a hard thing to do today. To think it was done in the 1930's!

Okay so enough pics on here. If you want to see the rest you can at

We had a good time. Ate good food...okay so In N Out and Sonic! lol Saw Bobby Darin at a resturant singing when we went to dinner with Steve and Aubrey and their kids. Our kids were home at our house with their Nana and Grandpa who came from Alaska to watch them...THANK YOU! And I just realized there is nothing on here from the holidays so that blog will follow!
