Holy cow! It's been a long time since I last blogged.
This past weekend (actually Monday through Tuesday) we went to Vegas for Fiona and I's 8th Anniversary. If you recall, we went there last year.
This time it ended much better with no puking in sight. The kids were great. We stayed at the same hotel as well. This time we stayed for two nights! The first day there we hit up the buffet at Planet Hollywood Hotel (previously Aladdin). That place is probably one of the better ones. After that we roamed the shops and caught a performance show (free of course) with really bendable acrobats. We attempted to go to Excalibur but all the kiddies were getting too tired so we headed back to the hotel.
The following day we headed out to Lake Las Vegas Resort. It was about 30 minutes out from the strip. It was quite refreshing with the greenery from the golf course. Although it still needs work from completion of shops. We followed it up with a stop at Ethel M's Chocolated Factory (the same one that we went to last year). We love their chocolates. Went back to the hotel for a quick rest and then headed out to Excalibur. We were kind of disappointed with that hotel. We bailed from there and headed to the buffet at the Mirage. It was average. Not as good as Planet Hollywood and it cost a few bucks more. After that we went to Circus Circus but the dome was closed! Doh! So we headed to the Midway (at Circus Circus as well) and played some games. Jadon kept on thinking he was going to play games in the Casino. Each kid left with a stuffed flamingo. That was it for that night.
The last day we went to the Palazzo and Venetian Hotels (interconnected). We roamed the forums and took pictures. After that we headed to Caesar's Palace for lunch at Trevi's. Then we ended it off with another visit at Ethel M's. Love their chocolates (did I say that before?).
We got back home at about 7:00pm. The next day (I also had the day off) we dropped Jadon off at school and headed out to Las Brisas for a breakfast buffet. It was located down in Laguna Beach (right off the coast). The sun was out, we had a great view, and breakfast was quite delectable. After that we strolled around and we actually saw some dolphins swimming near the shoreline. That was quite unbelievable.
Well that is it for now. I think I will post some pictures on flickr.
