Road Trip: Las Vegas

We went to visit our friends in Las Vegas and I saw the Strip for the first time!

We left the hotel parking lot, filled with anticipation :)

And drove through a lot of desert.



We crossed the Hoover Dam, but we didn't stop, I just snapped pictures from the car.



They're constructing a new bridge.

We finally arrived in Las Vegas!!!


We went to Caesars Palace.

All the hotels had been elaborately decorated for Chinese New Year (Feb. 14).







We went to the Bellagio, which was my one must-see in Las Vegas. Ever since I saw Ocean's Eleven, I've wanted to see the magnificent, choreographed fountain in front and the glass flowers on the lobby ceiling!






The Bellagios's atrium was filled with live orchids, trees, lanterns, etc. to celebrate Chinese New Year.


Our gracious hosts and friends, Collin and Rosemay.

See the little panda on the bamboo?


After the Bellagio we went across the street and had dessert crêpes in "Paris."

This looked like it was a fun trip :) If you are coming anywhere near Provo, you have to let me know... it's not that far from Vegas you know!!! I'm glad you got to see the water show, I think it's one of the funnest things there :)
