Last weekend we made our annual trek to Las Vegas for the Holidays and of course, lots of amazing fun, food, a show and drinking.
The casinos were all decked out for the holidays and it was a rather calm weekend in Vegas, probably due to the proximity to Christmas. All around it was a very awesome trip.

It was our first time staying here, and it won't be our last. We just love all the casinos in this area of the strip.
We were quite prepared for our weekend
Fun to look at, but no winners. :(
This one however, the bonus game just kept going and going. It wasn't a very exciting bonus game, but hey, I'll take $125 in pennies!!
Did you know Vegas has a Chocolate World too?
A tradition, checking out the conservatory at The Bellagio
And the next morning too
Our Friday Night dinner was at Noodles, it was most excellent.
We had leftovers. Lol
We followed up dinner with some Gelato
Saturday morning we headed to Flamingo for their champagne brunch
There is Golden Knights stuff EVERYWHERE. EVERY-WHERE!!!
It's awesome to see the town so enthusiastic about Hockey.
However, it's going to be REALLY annoying when the Raiders come to town.
We hadn't been inside the Forum Shops at Caesars in awhile
The best part was the spiral escalators
Nice to see the fountains still there
We had to check out The Atlantis Show. Hasn't changed in, well, however long it's been there.
We also of course had to check out the Bellagio Fountain show
After a quick nap it was time to head to Luxor for Blue Man Group.
We couldn't find the sky-bridge for some reason, so we ended up on the back-side of Excalibur. Lol.
An Egyptian Christmas
Still fascinated by this hotel
My wife has been trying to shut me up for 23 years, Blue Man Group finally did it
The show was AMAZING. So much fun and definitely family friendly. So feel free to take the kids.
Our last morning in Vegas we headed over to MGM
And on the way home stopped at Seven Magic Mountains
They were painted rocks. And that's pretty much all you need to know. =)
We had an AMAZING time in Vegas, we'll be back in a few months for our sons 21st birthday (how is that even a thing) and we'll have more "theme parky" stuff that trip since he hasn't been to Vegas since he was about 5 and needs all the credits (other than Miner Mike).
