Pictures from our Las Vegas trip

14 years ago

I had a great time celebrating my 50th birthday in Vegas!

We had a free room at Paris, but DH paid to upgrade to a Calais suite on the 29th floor. The room was big and beautiful, with a living room area, dining table, wet bar with fridge, king bed, and two bathrooms, one with a jetted tub. Also a straight-on view of the fountains across the street at Bellagio.

On Wednesday, my birthday, I slept late, then ordered breakfast from room service. We walked up the strip to check out the new Palazzo hotel and walked around in Wynn so I could take some photos. Then we played slots at Bally's (or was it Harrah's?) for a little while. We sat by the pool at our hotel for a couple hours, then got ready for dinner at Olives in the Bellagio. Lots of good food! I couldn't eat more than half of my squash-filled pasta. After dinner, we went to Bally's and played slots and listened to the band at Indigo Lounge.

Thursday and Friday we mostly walked around different casinos and played slots. About two hours before we had to go to the airport on Friday, we made our way back to Paris so my husband could play out the $150 ticket he had won that morning playing slots. He played for nearly two hours on a penny slot machine (playing the maximum bet of $1.80 each spin), until he had only $1.20 left to play. Then he hit a big win of $637!!! He played that up to over $900, then back down to about $850 before cashing out. We left for the airport ten minutes later. What a way to end the trip!
