Vegas Pics

I uploaded our Vegas pictures to Flickr so everyone can view them. Click here to the right to be taken to the pics. Enjoy!

Emmy at the airport

We had a tired little traveler last night but she did good on both
flights.

On the Dam

We walked out on the dam and got our picture taken on the Arizona-
Nevada state line.

We made it!

It's amazing.....

Lots of traffic

Beautiful views but slow going right now.

Lake Meade

On our way to the Hoover Dam today. The view is unbelievable,
perfectly clear and sunny today.

Emily and Lucy

We went to build-a-bear with Emily this morning to get her something
from Vegas she can remember. Lucy from Las Vegas says "Vegas, baby!"
in Emily's voice when you press his hand.

"The Family"

Todd's family

The best Man/Woman

The Ceremony

Just before Emmy broke down crying and I had to take her outside.

The Bride and Father

Coming down the aisle

Inside the Chapel

Here we go! Just need a minister now.

Robin's Family

Carol, Kim and Ralph

The Groom

Here is Todd with Robin fussing with his tie.

Here it is

The world famous Little White Chapel.

The Bride to be

Waiting to get started.

Xmas Shopping

Went to the Harley Davidson Cafe here on the strip to get some Xmas
shopping done. They had a bunch of different Harleys going around on a
conveyor through the cafe and store.

Rent Me

Lots of exotic car rental places on the strip. Rent one and feel like
a Rockstar.

Caesars Palace Lobby

Caesars is incredible inside. This is just the main lobby. Maybe get
some more pics tonight.

New York, New York

This place was amazing. A perfect replica of the NY City skyline with
the Statue of Liberty. You can just make out the giant rollercoaster
going across the front. They had a great tribute to 9/11 with signed
firemans gear from every company that came to help from around the
country and world after the attack. Very moving.....

The Luxor

It is really impressive to see up close. The pyramid is perfectly to
scale to the Egyptian pyramid and that beam of light can be seen from
space.

The Sunken Boat

The last exhibit was a sunken boat that was completely surrounded by
glass. It was great because the sharks swam all around and above you.
They had sounds like the boat was creaking, it was very immersive.

Sharks

After dinner last night we went to Mandalay Bay to see the shark
exhibit. It was very impressive and everyone had a great time.

That's $41 in drinks folks

Yep, not a misprint there folks. A beer and 3 mixed drinks at Caesars
Palace. We should have just played the nickel slots for free drinks.

Bellagio Fountains

The fountain show at the Bellagio is everything you've heard. It was
amazing watching it live last night.

Planet Hollywood

Formerly the Aladdin. This has the mile long mall in it where most of
the pics this morning are from.

The view from our Hotel

This is across the street from The Jockey Club.

There goes Em's College Fund

Time to gamble!

Crystal Ball

Each crystal is suspended by one wire. That must have been fun to set
up.

The Fountain in front of Paris

With people trying to duck under my picture....haha.

Eiffel Tower in Vegas?

Who needs to go to Paris. Screw the French we have our own.

The Real Vegas

Las Vegas is cool but most of it is under construction like this.

Bellagio, Caesars Palace and The Mirage

A boat inside?

As you can tell most of the pics on this trip will come from my iphone
for ease of use. This boat is on top of the restaurant with a harbor
with water nearby.

Copying Papa

Emmy loves to walk like Papa. She's really enjoying Vegas.

Inside the Aladdin

This inside Planet Hollywood next door to our hotel. That ceiling is
painted and they do rainstorms on the ceiling.

Viva Las Vegas

We made it! We are all pretty tired but happy to be here.

Wow

They build xbox games to last. I ran this one over with my truck and
the game is still intact. Let's not talk about how this happened though.

The Cannons

Here is one of the three cannons that Fort Sumter had to protect itself from the Confederate Army.

The Battery

We had a great time this morning learning about Historic Charleston.
Here is our favorite little girl posing with one of the monuments.

SC Sunset

We came back from dinner tonight to a beautiful sunset. We played on
the beach for awhile before the sun completely set. Tomorrow morning
we are going to walk on the beach and visit the Battery so we can see
the Cannons before we head home.

Dinner on the water

Went to a great place that some friends recommended and had a great
seafood dinner.
