Vegas Trip

Dh and I went to Vegas for DH's 40th birthday. It was a complete surprise to him because I wouldn't tell him where we were going until a couple of days before. We left very early in the morning and had a nice long uneventful flight into Vegas. We got to the Mirage hotel where we were staying and it was HUGE! I have never been in such a big hotel. It was beautiful also. We tried to check in but out room wasn't ready until 1:00 pm so we did some walking around. We walked across the street to the Venetian and checked out the gondalas and the hotel. It was just gorgeous inside. I couldn't believe it. When we were finally able to check into our room, Mark got his final surprise. His friend Patrick from Miami had flown in for the weekend. While they visited I met up with Karin and Betty for some stash shopping at their LNS. We also stopped off at a quilt shop and Joanns.
Mark and I had a lot of fun. He was able to play poker and Iwas able to go sight seeing. I tried to walk through most of the hotels. We saw Sigfried and Roy's Tigers, the Shark Reef at Mandalin Bay. We also went to see Zummanity at New York Hotel. I even layed by the pool one morning and actually got a sunburn on my face.

The only downside to the trip was that I caught a cold and was sick the last two days of the trip. Which was sad because I was in bed by 9:00 pm each about a downer. All in all the trip was great and Mark had a fabulous birthday!
