The last of the pictures.

Well, here are the last couple of pictures from Vegas. We arrived late on Sunday night so we just went to our hotel (The Signature) and signed in. We were pretty hungry though so we ordered room service. Who doesn't like room service? I was excited to see what room service would be like at this place as it was pretty up scale and very nice. We ordered shrimp cocktail and stuffed potato skins (they didn't call it that but that is what they were). The shrimp came in a mason jar looking thing packed in water, ice, and veggies...the dipping sauces were in baby jars...and the lemon to squeeze on the shrimp was wrapped in lace. Very cute! The potatoes skins were stuff with bacon, crab, and meatballs...not all on one though. they were yummy with the *real* sour cream they brought us. I say real because I only buy low fat or fat free sour cream...what a treat!

On Monday we did most of the *strip* seeing. No!! Not that kind of strip! That is when we went to most of the hotels/casinos and did the sightseeing stuff. One of the things we enjoyed the most was going up in the "Eiffel Tower" at the Paris Hotel. I'm not much of an elevator person (especially if you can see outside of it!) so the ride up was not much fun for me and took FOREVER!!! Anyway, the view was beautiful! Just about everywhere you go they take your picture and you can view them for possible purchase later. We did buy pictures because we knew that we wouldn't have many of the two of us. So here we are at the base of the Eiffel Tower.

The other really neat part was going into the Venetian Hotel. It has some great shops and a water way inside. Everything is so bright inside the hotels that you lose time. Anyway, we choose to go on a gondola ride. We needed to sit for a little while anyway and it looked so nice. It was lots of fun..except for the people staring at you as you go by. You see the shops are lined with sidewalks (of course) and the water way is in the middle so everyone stops and watches the gondola's going by. I didn't really like being in someones picture but I guess when you do that stuff you put yourself out there for that kind of thing. Anyway, here is that picture.

Lastly, on my list anyway, was the Bellagio water show at night. I had seen it during the day and it was VERY neat. At night it is even better. The first time it was choreographed to Singin' In The Rain. This time it was to the Hallelujah Chorus. The cannons that shoot that water up have got to have so much pressure behind them because the water at some points goes up at least 100 ft. in the air. Very impressive! Here is the last shot of the show.

All in all it was a wonderful time! If we were to do something like this trip again though...we'd go someplace warm! It wasn't bad in Nevada but it was only in the upper 50's. Something in the 80's sure would be nice right now!

Thanks for looking all!

I've never had room service at a hotel (poor me! Haha) Food looks very fancy and yummy!

Love your pictures -- I don't like elevators either, but I think I'd make an exception to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower.

The Bellagio water show was my favorite part of Vegas -- SOOO cool!
