some Vegas details
So. My wonderful friend J. was having a BIG birthday on Halloween. I told her she needed to celebrate it in some fun/crazy/wild way, and she chose Las Vegas. Neither of us had ever been there before, so we did some research, found a great air/hotel package and flew out on the morning of Wednesday the 31st. We checked into our hotel - we stayed at Circus Circus (which made my hubby who is a fan of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas rather jealous) - and then prepared for our night out...by taking a nap.
HEY! We had to! The show was at 9:00pm that night - which just happened to be midnight "our time"...So to be wide eyed and ready for fun, we napped.
And boy did we have fun that night!! If you're ever in Las Vegas, I highly recommend going to the Excalibur and seeing the Thunder from Down Under!! Woo hoo! Fine, mostly-naked, VERY nice Aussies!! Check them out:
Here's the three of us (her friend drove up from Flagstaff to join us) all dressed up.
The next day we walked the Strip...the WHOLE thing...almost. We walked from Circus Circus all the way down to Caesar's Palace, and then back again.
