VACA - Yeehaw!

VIVA Las Vegas!
While the kids were away, the parents will play!! :)
The kids went on a pioneer trek, across the Wyoming plains and we thought, 'hey.... why should we be stuck at home'. So, we high tailed it out of Denver into the desert heat of Sin City.
We stayed at the Monte Carlo - kinda in the center of the action. Was fun to walk out of the hotel and across the street to M&M World - seriously FUN store!!
We left after dropping the kids off at the stake center for their trek. Our plane was a tad bit late - but we were entertained with some airport drama. A young family got to the gate just as the doors were closing and the man got just a TAD irate that he missed his plane. He was yelling at the lady behind the counter which turned into some racial slurs... the lady called the cops and 4 cops came and calmed the guy down. Our whole section of the airport was SO quiet listening to this man, berate this woman. His poor wife, just sat away from them - quiet as could be - I'm sure she was a tad bit embarrased. So there was our Vegas pre-entertainment.
We got into town, checked into the hotel, met up with Kathy & Alan and took off to meet Trish & Gregg at Dicks Last Resort ( at the Excalibur. What a FUNNY place - they were rude, obnoxious and downright funny. We laughed the WHOLE time. Those who ordered water were forced to share. Our water came out in pitchers with HUGE straws out of them. It was Hilarious. They wouldn't bring us menus - in fact told us to get off our butts and go look at the ones posted on the wall. Need napkins?? Well they will just throw them at ya!! LOL... It was a great way to start the trip.
Then we saw the Bellagio and had dessert at the Bellagio. We went swimming a couple times and saw most all the hotels. Ate at Excalibur, NY NY, Luxor, Venetian and Monte Carlo. We saw some AMAZING shows.. KA at the MGM and Le Reve at the Wynn. Now for the pictures!!
