Vegas Vacation

for valentine's day/president's day/kapri's bday we went to vegas with our besties jeff & kapri. we had SO much fun. we didn't want it to end. in fact, we toyed with the idea of staying one more day...but responsibilities forced us home. sad day!

the first night (saturday) we headed to the strip to hang out. we even got a lil bit of shopping in at the planet hollywood...thank goodness for patient husbands!!! this is the 4 of us across the street from new york new york after a LONG drive to vegas:

the next morning we hit up the brunch buffet at the casino and then headed back to the strip to see "defending the caveman". it was a one man comedy monologue thingy about the differences between men and women. he related it back to our beginnings as cavemen; men as the hunters and women as gatherers. it was really funny!

that night we went to dinner at Tamba...a really yummy indian restaurant on the strip. we seriously ate so much and i totally would have eaten more. i'm still craving it!!

on monday we hit up the rio world carnival buffet. can i just say...AMAZING!! if you go to vegas you HAVE to go here. i think it's one of the best buffets. and on top of the delicious foods, the desserts were divine! they have one of the top 10 pastry chefs in the country there. oh and they have all you can eat crab legs. ry ate 4 HUGE plates full of legs. oh but it was so good!

after the buffet, we raced over to Treasure Island to see Mystere, one of the many cirque du soleil shows. it was seriously amazing! there was very impressive acrobatic stuff going on. we were just in awe the whole time. and there was some great comedy relief. really the best way i could describe it though is a tripped out circus. oh good times! i wanna see all of the other cirque du soleil shows now. i guess we're going to have to go back to vegas...darn it!

after the show we hit up an oxygen bar. it was really silly and i don't really know if it did anything but it was definitely fun.

some random pics of our vegasness:

our bedke/clawson tradition...vacation toast

Thank you so much for posting this. It sure looks like you had a wonderful time. I love all the pictures of the 4 of you. Great picture with you, Ryan and the sign. And tell Ryan to stay away from pink monkeys. They make you do weird things. LOL Well I'm so glad that it went well. Thanks again for sharing it with us.
