Viva Las Vegas!!!!

A couple weeks ago I had the privilege of going to Vegas. What an experience! I had such an amazing time! The things I saw and did. I was there for 8 days and I still never got to see everything!

My biggest highlight was going to see Elton John in concert at Caesar’s Palace. What an amazing show! “Elton John & the Red Piano.” Nobody else in my group was interested in going, so I went by myself, and I am glad I did. It was so worth it. He played for an hour and 45 minutes with no breaks. And he had great audience interaction. For one song, the orchestra seating got to go up on stage and dance with Elton. If you ever get the opportunity to see Elton John, I highly recommend you go! And the theatre at Caesar’s Palace is BEAUTIFUL!

Another highlight for me was the controversial “Bodies” exhibit at the Tropicana; the anatomy museum. I found it so fascinating! The things I had the opportunity to see. You can easily spend a lot of money in Vegas, but yet at the same time, it is amazing how many free things there are to do there! I will definitely be back!

Literally hours before I was leaving for vacation we had a bad rainstorm and flooding! My basement flooded (which had never happened in the 60+ years it’s been in existence) and shingles were flying off my garage. My poor friend Sari who was house sitting for me was left with quite a mess! I still don’t know how I am going to make this all up to her!

Unfortunately now that I have been back for a while, my vacation mindset is slowly drifting away as realities of life set back in! Anxious for another vacation some time soon!
