Day 10 ...... the holiday is nearly over (sigh!)

Hello again from Sin City ......

Yes, our little trip to Las Vegas is slowly coming to an end ..... but we're finishing it with a bang!!

We've had another few busy days ...... well, I should say nights really.  We've been playing a lot of cards in the Venetian Poker Room until the early hours ...... hubby's not been doing too badly, me on the other hand ..... not so good!  Lady luck has not been with me at all ...... I'm just lucky that hubby doesn't mind me losing his hard earned cash!!!!  I had fun though.

It was Stephen's birthday on Thursday too ....... the last one before the BIG 50!  What a place to spend it eh!  He even got birthday cards .........

I managed to sneak them into the luggage then hide them away in the hotel room.
One from me (a bit quick and easy I know but I was running out of time .....)

One from the kids .....

And even the little man remembered ......

Not sure if you know but hubby is a bit of a country music fan, and one of his favourite songs is Toby Keith's 'I Love this Bar' ....... well,  there just happens to be an 'I Love This Bar' Bar on the strip, in Harrah's hotel.  So .... where did we spend Friday night .... oh yes ....... you guessed!

We had beer and far too many of these things ......

(Sorry about the picture quality but it was late and this was the third one!!!)  Yes, we were drinking cocktails from a mason jar  ..... a large mason jar ..... 32oz in fact!!!  As you can probably imagine I didn't see much of Saturday morning!!!  Reading through the text conversation I was having with Lauren back home, while we were in the bar ..... sounds like we had a good night though! 

Saturday night was a good one too .... we had tickets to see the fabulous Shania Twain in the Colosseum at Caesars Palace

She was amazing .... what a show!  I loved every minute, what a fantastic entertainer she is

We'd been told before the show no cameras, videos or mobile phones but people didn't seem to take any notice, and after Shania actually spent about 25 minutes in the audience having pictures taken etc.,  I took a few pictures at the end .....

Another great night in Vegas!

We've only got tomorrow(Sunday), and Monday morning left.   On Monday afternoon we have to check out and start our long journey home.  It's been fun though!

Thanks for popping by ......... enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Cheerio until next time



  1. Sounds like you are enjoying every minute of your time there! Belated birthday wishes to Stephen, his cards are beautiful.

    All good things must come to an end but you will have some wonderful memories. Anne xx

  2. Wow that looked like a fabulous night she is brilliant and OMG mega cocktails, yes please!! xxx

  3. Oh, man, I'm so so so jealous that you guys got to see Shania!! Your whole recounting of your trip sounds like SUCH a great time, Linda! I'm not sure what it means that you haven't updated now for about a week. You either got in trouble for your carousing and high-rolling activities or you won SO BIG that you have flown away to some island in the sun!! (I hope!) Do come back someday and let us know about it!! Hugs, Darnell
