Viva Las Vegas

Wow we had our "girl weekend", what a wonderful time I had. Did lots of talking, laughing, drinking, looking, seeing, and don't forget the walking.
Thursday met Patty at the airport and got her luggage and put it in the car, then Chris arrived so got her luggage and got checked in. Did some sight seeing, people (and bar tender)watching and gambling.
Friday found a pharmacy for Patty who was coming down with a doozy of a cold, had breakfast (wasn't it about 10:30am by then)...Oh well 3 sharing a bathroom, blow dryers, curling irons and etc brought back FOND memories..Now I know why I left for work before they had to get ready for school! Checked out Ethel's an outstanding chocolate factory (and cactus gardens that was not near as interesting to the two Arizonians). It has started by the son of the man who started the Mars Candy Company. Stop by if you get to LV. Parked at one end of the strip and checked out casinos and etc. That evening we split up about 7pm with Chris attending a LRPG with friends and Patty and I attending the show of "Tony and Tina's Wedding" It was lots of fun, got kissed by father of the groom (you know that slobbery smack smack smack) who had been hitting the bottle during the pre wedding. Lots of inter action with actors because we were at one of the tables next to the "dance floor" "alter".
Saturday took a taxi to the opposite end of the strip from where we started Friday (and this way no one had to forgo their Margarita's because they were driving). Checked out more stores, casinos and etc. Found a great upscale hamburger place for dinner then back to hotel to see Cirque Du Soleil Mystere Wow Patty great seats you picked. Second row middle, action right in front of us, right above us, and all around us when they were in audience. A MUST SEE SHOW if you ever get a chance.
Thank you so much Chris and Patty, I have two lovely wonderful daughters!!!!!
