We didn't know this at the time, But this Hotel is about 30min. from the strip, but this is where the conference was, and it was free, so I'm not complaining. :D
Ira and I had a lot of fun. The first night we were there we stayed around the hotel, Played a little and grabbed a bite to eat.
All day Thursday I attended classes, from learning about reference questions all the way to gaming in the Library. Ira peeled himself away from the TV (CABLE, which we don't have) long enough to have lunch with me, then it was off to MORE classes.
That evening, we went took a drive down the strip, WOW, is all I can say! My feet hurt SO bad; we did so much walking! It was worth it.
Are first stop was the Bellagio to have a look at the fountains.
Then, I don't know how but Ira convinced me to go on the NEW YORK NEW YORK Roller Coaster. As you can see Ira was enjoying himself, me on the other hand was a little scared!!!!!
We also went to the M&M Store, Walked past Paris, and even through Italy... :D Who knew that you could go SO many places in one City!
At the Venetian
I think the most awesome part of our trip was the TOURNAMENT OF KINGS!!!!! At the Excalibur They put on a dinner show. It's SO awesome! You sit with your country. Ira and I sat With Hungary. We of course were to scream and holler for our King. We were served a Cornish Game Hen, Stake fries, Broccoli and Tomato soup for dinner. and of course we had to use our hands to eat. NO SILVERWARE! Unfortunately we couldn't take pictures during the show. Attending the show we even had a Newlywed couple, Decked out in Her wedding dress and everything. ONLY IN VEGAS!!!!
Here's the Excalibur
We also Walked thru a Shark Reef Aquarium, We weren't too impressed with this, We thought we would see more sharks, or BIGGER sharks. and really it was so dark, the pictures didn't turn out all that great.
We even ran into a couple of famous people... Micheal Jackson AND Elvis (I thought he was dead)
We had a REALLY great time!!! I learned alot, and We Played ALOT!!! It was a great Weekend getaway, we can't wait to go back to see what we didn't have time to see.
