Vegas, baby!

Todd & Georgia are big Vegas travelers so we asked them to see if they wanted to go in June with us! So... we traveled to Vegas for only one night!
Todd had us upgraded to a beautiful room in the Augustus Tower on the 39th floor, overlooking the Bellagio fountains and the Las Vegas strip. Caesar's Palace is located in the heart of the action.
The fountains go on at day and night time.
It's been over 20 years since I've been to Vegas so it was fun seeing all the new hotels and attractions.
Russ and Todd both ordered 5 lb lobsters for dinner at the Palms Restaurant. When they brought out the platter, Georgia and I thought that we were to share it for two people, but no, it was for one.
We wore our lobster bibs and enjoyed the wonderful meal.
Afterwards, we watched the Bellagio fountains "dance" to Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On".
Inside the Bellagio, they have a spectacular display of seasonal garden decor with oversized flowers, ants and butterflies. It was gorgeous!
The Bellagio's chocolate shop looked cool as well. I bought a chocolate mint gelato...yum!
The next day, we strolled around and saw some more hotels and checked out the lions at the MGM Grand. Here, kitty kitty!
24 hours in Vegas was great fun! We'll do it again someday soon.
Thanks, Todd & Georgia for a wonderful trip! You two are great hosts!
