We left early Sunday morning to Las Vegas for Isaac's 30th Birthday! Gwenett, Isaac, Grant and I drove together in a free rental car that Marsha got us:) We stopped at state line on the way to eat some lunch and watch the last quarter of the Viking's game! Thank God the Viking's won in the last 30 seconds or it would have started Isaac's trip off on the wrong foot!!! We arrived in Vegas around 3:00 pm and dropped Gwenett & Isaac off at their hotel and proceeded to ours. Traffic was bad and it took us an hour to get from Luxor to Bellagio. Grant and I decided to stay at the Bellagio since it was a Sunday, Monday night it was cheap. We never really stay at a nice hotel and figured it's the same price we normally pay at Excalibur on the weekend and we'll probably never be able to stay here ever again since it's so pricey on the weekends when we usually go, we just thought lets stay somewhere nice. The room was Beautiful and the view was amazing. It would have been perfect for New Years, we had a great view of the Paris hotel and the ramp that Robbie Madison was doing his motorcycle jump on Arc de Triumph.

Once we checked into our hotel room we had about 30 minutes to get ready and head over to the Mandalay Bay to meet up with everyone for the Chargers Game! We hurried out to the taxi line and it was sooo long, Grant really wanted to bet on the game so we ran to the Mandalay Bay. Thank God for the monorail half way there. We made it just in time. Gwenett & Isaac were already there and we met up with Wayne and Breanne and Wayne's friend Josh whom were in town for the UFC fight the previous night. Everyone had fun betting on the Game, Thank God the Chargers kicked the Bronco's Butts and made it to the playoffs! I had fun catching up with Breanne and talking about her Graduation and Wedding Plans. Her ring is Beautiful (Good Job Wayne) she is going to make a Beautiful Bride!
Once the game was over we decided to walk around a little through the Luxor and ended up gambling a little at Excalibur. Everyone was tired (since the little ones all wake us up before 6am) so we decided to call it a night.
Grant and I stopped at our hotel to take a few pics before going to bed. This is a chocolate shop in the Bellagio by our room called Jean Phillipe. The chocolate fountains were so beautiful and looked so yummy. These pics are for you Denisse :)
The hotel was still decorated so beautifully for Christmas, here are a few more pics of the atrium.
The next morning Grant and I went to eat breakfast in a cafe inside the Paris hotel. It was the best French Toast I've ever had.
Here are a few pics of the jump that Robbie Madison was doing on New Years Eve. Scary
We caught a cab to the Sahara to meet up with The Mendez Family to play so cheap craps and black jack. There were dollar margaritas at the bar so Jill decided to sit there for a few hours and drink about 14! Lets just say she was feeling real Good LOL
We all parted ways to get ready for dinner and met up at MGM for Sushi for Isaac's Birthday dinner.
Saki Bombs for those Brave Enough.
Isaac, Gwenett, Joe and Jill had tickets to see Zumanity after dinner so we walked with them over to New York New York. Taking plenty of photo's along the way :)
Grant and I gambled a little at NY NY and decided to call it a night. It's actually sad that we finally get out with no baby for a few nights and we're still in bed by midnight. We woke up early the next morning and ran over to Paris to pick up a few yummy pastries to bring home, picked up Gwenett & Isaac, stopped for the buffett at Mandaly Bay (no Bueno) and headed back to Cali. It was a great trip but we were all ready to get home and see our babies :)
