During the last week of June Todd & I spent an amazing four childless days enjoying the sights and sounds of Las Vegas!! We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary in May so we wanted to do something fun, just the 2 of us, which we haven't been able to do since we were newlyweds. We stayed at the Mirage for four nights and had the most wonderful time. We spent our days relaxing by the beautiful pool/waterfalls sipping piƱa coladas and strawberry daquiris or touring the strip and the evenings eating delicious dinners and watching amazing shows (The Phantom and Blue Man Group)! Of course we played a few slots too ;) We weren't big money winners but we couldn't have asked for a better vacation together. It was so nice to be able to reconnect as a couple and talk over dinner without taking constant potty breaks, breaking up fights, or sharing our food (huge plus!). The Mirage was amazing! We had a beautiful room with an incredible view of the strip...the lights at night were sooo pretty! I didn't take as many photos as I normally do but I was enjoying my time with my husband too much to spend it hiding behind my camera. Plus, with 110 degree heat it was too hot to be carrying a bulky camera around my neck. We had the best time and we're already trying to plan our next vacation together...hopefully it won't be in another 10 years!

View from the plane! Southwest was a great airline to fly with.

The Mirage! We loved it here! The bed was soooo comfortable!

Standing together at the fountain in the Palazzo. We were getting ready to see Blue Man much fun!

View of the Paris from the strip.

Standing in front of the Bellagio before watching the musical water fountains!

Walking up to one of the Venetian entrances.

The inside of the Venetian is sooo cool. You can take gondola rides through the hotel and do some high end shopping at the same time! Such a beautiful place!

Stopping for a quick photo in the MGM grande before heading to Nobhill Tavern for an incredible dinner. I felt soooo underdressed (we didn't know it would be fine dining) but they made us feel like royalty. The waiter was super friendly and attentive and the food was incredible!!! of the best meals I've ever eaten!

Just a small sampling of the dessert buffet at the MGM Grande's lunch buffet. Everything was delicious!

Nighttime in Vegas!
