We flew in on Thursday afternoon and when we arrived at the house it was stunning and there was even beer in the fridge. Thursday evening was spent grocery shopping and hanging around the pool whilst some of the party saw Celine Dion which was described as “Everything, just everything from the singing to the special effects and the dancing and the wardrobe it was just everything you expected”. The house did have a few problems but I wonder if they are the same problems that we would find staying in any strange house. It took time to figure out which lights turned what on and the wireless internet wasn’t exactly accessible enough for me to blog. The pool wasn’t warm until the second day and the shower in the pool house only had cold water (eek!). Oh I know it’s like complaining the caviar is too salty, we should all have it so hard. Although the view was incredible next time we’ll get something closer to the strip.
Friday we slept in and in the afternoon got our fancy duds on in preparation for an Elvis ceremony. It was half humor and half romantic and I almost cried. Well worth it. After we took everyone out for dinner at the Paris were we found everything from crab legs to crepes it was incredible. The rest of the weekend was spent sight seeing and gambling. I ended up winning for the weekend and Dan lost but we never did spend everything we brought so we’re counting that as coming home ahead, anytime you can come back from vacation in Vegas and put money back in the bank its good. My three favorite places? The Peppermill lived up to its swanky reputation as did the buffet at Paris and Ella loved the shark reef at Mandalay Bay.
