Vegas Baby


We are back home and enjoying the 30 degree cooler weather! Vegas was hitting temps of 116 while we were there, so hot!! I will definitely not do Vegas again in the summer. I am happy when its 80-85!

First day we hit the pool, then headed up to change and get ready for dinner. We chose to eat at The Chart House at the Golden Nugget, awesome food, great service. I LOVED my Shrimp Scampi!

After dinner we rode the roller coaster at NY NY.

This is what I wore...


Day 2 we had breakfast together as our group of 8, then headed to the pool. The best part of the pool at Monte Carlo is the Lazy River.


We shopped a little at the Miracle Mile Shops, then got ready for dinner before headed to see a show. 


We saw the show KA at MGM, I had read such great reviews and we found a great price on tickets. The best part of the show was seeing the amazing stage move and the strength the performers had working with the moving stage. But it wasn't my favorite show... I even fell asleep... multiple times... 
At the very end of the show, a performer fell from the top of the stage, some are saying she fell from her safety harness. She fell about 50 feet, and we later found out she died from her injuries. The show was stopped and we were given full refunds. I still can't believe that happened. I don't understand why there wasn't a safety net the entire show because we definitely saw it at times. So tragic.

Until next year...

I can't believe you saw that tragic accident :( so unbelievably sad.

The temperatures in Vancouver were almost 100 this weekend so I can only imagine how hot Vegas must have been!

Wow! I can't believe you were there when that happened! I've seen KA twice and LOVE that show. It's sad that she fell but I really hope the show will continue.
