Vegas Trip Day 2

Saturday was the first full day in Vegas and it was full of wonderful things to see and do. We didn’t get up too early but early enough. LOL

The first thing we did was get on the bus and we took it down towards the end of the strip where we got off and walked approximately six blocks to the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop, otherwise known as Pawn Stars. We went there hoping to see the stars of the show; Old Man, Rick, Big Haws, and Chumlee. Unfortunately they only work during the week so we were not able to see and meet them.

It was an awesome feeling being in a store that is famous and on TV. We each purchased a shirt from the show and we took pictures of some things we saw in the shop that have been on the show. Those pictures are at the bottom of this post.

After our visit to the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop we took the bus back down the strip and started walking again. We saw Treasure Island, the Blue Man Group statues, and we went into the Venetian. In the Venetian we saw a live statue and we had Italian icecream (Gelato). We made several stops in shops along the way.

To end our afternoon we did a CSI experience. Needless to say that was awesome. We chose crime scene number one which took place in a living room. We saw a sofa, an entertainment stand, a coffee table, and a car that had driven through the house. We went through different stations trying to decide who killed the man in the car. It was a fun and educational experience and it’s one I’m VERY glad we did.

Our evening ended at the Rain Forest Café’ and it was the best food. The boys have never been there so the entire experience was wonderful and one we thoroughly enjoyed. We walked around a little more and then went back to the hotel. The boys road the roller coaster in Circus Circus and we walked around the AdventureDome a little more.

Saturday was a very good day and one we really enjoyed. It was nice to see all the things Vegas has to offer and see the looks the boys had with the different things we saw. Here are more pictures for you to enjoy.

Vegas Trip Day 1

Our Vegas trip was last week and we had such a great time. The boys loved every aspect of it which made it even better. We left on Friday evening and we all had the day off to prepare for the trip. Kevin and I did some grocery shopping in the morning, we ran a few errands in the afternoon, and then we sat and waiting for 2:30 to come so we could leave for the airport.

The boys were so excited and they were ready to go, but we still had to wait. When the time came to go they were even more excited. We went to the airport and had to wait again. LOL Our flight was delayed by 30 minutes which made matters worse, but we still made it.

Once we were on the plane the fun would begin. Neither of the boys had flown before so this was a new experience for them. Josh flew with Kevin and Chris flew with me. I don’t really do well with the take offs and landings so we thought it would be best to do it that way. Needless to say that was a good choice to make. Josh felt sick from the time we taxied down the run way until we were leveled out and well on our way. He felt the same way again when we prepared for landing.

When we arrived in Vegas the boys were more than excited. We checked into our room and immediately went back out. We walked down the strip to a burger joint for burgers and fries. That was a long walk since we knew exactly where we wanted to go. Once we were done with dinner we went back to Circus Circus and walked around the Adventure Dome. That was a lot of fun as well.

Here are some pictures we took that night. Make sure you come back tomorrow for Saturday’s adventures during our trip.
