What happened in Vegas....

Dan and I had a great time, but I have to say it was the hottest weather we both have ever experienced -- 115 degrees! It did feel like being in an oven. Our wake up call announced 102 degrees at 9:00 AM the day we left.

The Venetian was lovely -- the most luxurious suite we have occupied to date. It had 600 square feet and 2 large flat screen TVs. See pictures. In the early day, we hung out by the pool. Each evening we ate a great dinner and gambled in the Casino. No big winnings, but we managed to lose only $500 in 4-days. The Bette Midler show was awesome! We ate dinner at Emeril's Delmonico restaurant on Saturday night -- very good. Dan ate steak and I had the scallop/shrimp/black pepper pasta special entree. Banana pie with dark chocolate shaving for dessert -- YUM!

They had an FAO Schwarz store in Caesar's Forum shopping mall. The front of the store was a 3-story Trojan horse. I bought Emily and Molly some of their first dolls at the FAO Schwarz in San Francisco. When Dan and I were there earlier in the year, we were disappointed to find that the store there had closed. We were able to pick up Emma's first doll in Vegas. It is a perfect size for her and the doll's thumb fits into her mouth, so she can suck her thumb. I can't wait to give it to her!

It was a good trip, but it is good to be home.
