Yesterday was my third day off from work (and it's my last day) so I made it a good one. MiamiDon and I got up early (for us) and we drove over to Lake Las Vegas to pick up his sister. Her conference ended and she was staying at the Bellagio for her last night in town - good choice!!!!!
I actually snapped a couple more pictures from the Hyatt as we were loading up here stuff...
So, we left Henderson and drove down to the strip and since his sister has never been to Vegas, we gave her the full tour. We drove from the Mandalay Bay end all the way to downtown. While downtown, we showed her all the good stuff like the wedding chapels and the pawn shops and the bail bonds. I also ran into the Golden Nugget to see how much construction they are doing over there cause that's where my parents are staying next week.
After we made the loop, we headed over to the Bellagio so she could check in. She got a FAT suite up on the 22nd floor and from the window I was able to see everything. One side of her suite had a view of all the pools (I think there were 5) and the other set of windows had a view of the strip and the fountains.
Of course I had to snap one of the MGM...
Next, we headed down to the pools to get some sun. It was about 105 degrees out, but it felt great. I haven't laid out in the sun since I moved here from Florida. I miss it!!!!! We laid out by one of the smaller pools that had a fountain - the water was freezing in this pool.
It was funny because everyone that tried to get into this pool, stuck one foot in and changed their mind when they found out how cold it was (me included). We all back tracked and went to the main pool where the water wasn't nearly as cold.
After laying by the pool for a few hours, Don and I walked around the Bellagio and then over to Caesar's Palace to find a place for dinner. We decided on a nice Italian restaurant called Terrazza - the food was excellent and so was the service. Good choice!!
Don snapped this picture of his sister (Debbie) and I...
This is the three of us (notice how short I look compared to the both of them)...
Well, it's not that I "look" short - i actually am very short and they are both pretty tall.
Finally, after dinner we went to see the fountains!! I've never seen the Bellagio Fountains so I was thrilled. They were awesome!!
Blogger is not allowing me to post any more pictures so I guess I'm done. Time to watch Days of Our Lives anyway and then I'm heading to work for Day #58 of Training. Supposedly Saturday night is my last training night and then I'll finally be on the floor solo!!
