So the last time I updated you on our vacation experiences/pictures, was 2013. Wow. I’m really behind. I’ll try and work on this starting with our vacation in 2014.
We didn’t go on a cruise in 2014. I think part of the reason is because we didn’t have enough points built up on our credit card to cash in for a flight and we didn’t even think of driving to a port, back then, so we went to Las Vegas.
But I think the primary reason we went to Las Vegas that year was because Kevin needed CPE credits to maintain his CPA license and we thought it would be fun to go to Las Vegas and kill two birds with one stone.
Kevin had his seminar until 2:00 every day and for the life of me, I don’t remember what I did while he was doing his thing. I think I just walked around the hotel because I KNOW I would have left the room so housekeeping could do their thing and I seem to recall reading my Kindle, (really, when am I not?) out by the pool a few times and I’m sure I would have taken my laptop … but it seems I could never find an outlet to plug the thing in to so I don’t really remember doing a lot with my laptop, sadly.
After Kevin finished his sessions, we walked around and took in the sights.
This building was by far the coolest building I saw, or have ever seen since.
Kevin was pretty big into Nascar at the time so he was pretty excited to see the M&M car.
The night lights were incredible. The whole city transformed into magic.
We went to the famous strip:
And saw some people dressed up as various characters.
They even had a zipline stretched from one end of the city block to the other and people would routinely fly above us. I wanted to try it but I couldn’t talk Kevin into it.
We toured the Hoover Dam – it was like something out of a movie.
We dressed up and went to see Shania Twain in concert.
Kevin was in heaven because he LOVES Shania Twain. In fact, he told me the other day that she’s going to be back in Las Vegas with another concert. He wants to go. I wouldn’t mind going back to Las Vegas.
The hotels are so impressive. We stayed at the Tropicana positioned more on one end of the strip.
Saw a few celebrities, no big deal.
They weren’t very talkative and looked a bit waxy, but hey, it was still cool to see them.
Spiderman kept bugging me. Man, that guy hangs out everywhere.
We have badges on here … I seem to recall we went on a tour and stopping at the Las Vegas sign was one stop. I think we also visited the famous Pawn Stars shop on this tour, too.
Yep, here’s Chumley.
And inside Pawn Stars.
The rest of the trip? Well, let’s just say that story will stay in Las Vegas.
Pretty sure we’ll go back to Las Vegas one of these days.
