Those of you who have been lucky enough to go will have your own description of the place, but for us Vegas is 'an adult Disneyland'. It's true it never sleeps and after a few days there you end up wondering just what time it is at any given time of day...you can walk through a sea of people gambling on slot machines to have your breakfast and they'll still be there 12 hours later during dinner!
|Coming into Vegas & us after a full day of roadtripping (Laura is an entire box of Frosted Flakes down at this point)|
|Laura's magic US powers of not having to hold the gas pump.... and Sarah hearts beaver, apparently.|
We breakfasted in 'Paris' under the Eiffel Tower - we opted for the buffet breakfast and literally spent three hours eating! There was SO much choice and we wanted to try EVERYTHING! After strolling/rolling back down the streets of Paris we headed to Ceasars Palace. The 25 degree heat made it perfect weather to hang out by Vegas's Trevi Fountain (an exact replica, Sarah can confirm).
|Laura was a messy moo so we had to make her a bib!|

There's also the AMAZING shows. We wanted to see the gorgeous Holly Madison in 'Peep Show' but it was sold out (sadface) so we settled on 'The Thunder from Down Under' - a male strip show with hunky Aussies haha. Oddly it was showing in Excalibur (one of more family-oriented hotels (FUN FACT: Laura stayed there when her parents took her to Vegas for her 10th (ish) birthday!) so there were hen/bachelorette parties galore running around lots of little kids to see strippers - ONLY IN VEGAS!
|It was every bit as cheesy as it looks!|
|One of our finest moments|
Here's a video we put together of our trip to the great Las Vegas!!
Laura would like to take this moment to clear up any confusion for you Brits out there who want to go to Vegas. You're saying it wrong! Okay, maybe not each of you, but the English people she has met (including the lovely Sarah) all pronounce Las Vegas as it's written ('Las' pronounced like the 'a' in 'last'). In fact, us Americans (who are the authority on all things Vegas) pronounce it ('Las' pronounced like the 'o' in 'lost'). So there you go, go out and impress your friends with your American-ness! ;)

Remember, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!! (Most of the time)
Viva Las Vegas, Laura & Sarah xo
