Viva Las Vegas

20 October 2019

This seems so long ago but at the end of September we had a birthday weekend in Las Vegas.  I got Don tickets for his 50th birthday to go see his favorite comedian Daniel Tosh.   We invited the Conrath's to go with us and made a weekend out of it.

On the way into Vegas we stopped at the Seven Magic Mountains which is basically an art installation in the middle of the dessert. 


Each rock is huge and painted a vibrant color.

We had some time to kill before we checked in to our hotel so we went to the Shark Reef at the Mirage. 


Later that night Don and Carl went to the MGM to see Daniel Tosh and Amy and I took the kids to see a magic/variety show.  It was pretty great and we were mystified.  Somehow I got pulled on stage to do a magic trick.  Here's the selfie the magician took. 



The next day we did the typical Las Vegas stuff by driving the strip and checking out the Las Vegas sign. 


That day was my birthday so we went out for a nice dinner at Mon Ami Gabi and then checked out some of the hotel exhibits.  This was in the Bellagio. 


And of course the Bellagio Fountains. 


A fun way to spend our weekend.  No regrets in going but Vegas won't be on the top of my list of places to return.
