Our Anniversary Weekend

This past weekend, we celebrated our anniversary. My sister was sweet enough to watch the kids for us so we packed our bags and headed for Vegas. Our first stop was at the state line where we did some outlet shopping and ate lunch at the Mad Greek. It was delicious!
We got to Vegas pretty early so we hit Caesar's Palace and then the Bellagio. This is the atrium I heard so much about. The flowers were stunning!
Of course, we had to see the chocolate fountain too! Where's a strawberry when you need one?
We're not big gamblers; I don't think we gambled more than $20 between the two of us all weekend. However, we did hit the nickle poker machines and managed to sit there playing for about an hour on $5! Then we headed to our hotel but Scott wanted to stop at the Venetian first. I was hoping we'd ride on the gondolas. However, Scott got into the line for the lobby. What a surprise! I've always wanted to stay at the Venetian.
Just look at the lobby!
Here's our room. I couldn't help myself, I had to take pictures. We had three televisions in the suite, one in the bathroom, one in the bedroom, and one in the sunken living room.
We did get our chance to ride on the gondolas. We spent our honeymoon in Italy so it brought back a ton of good memories. While in Venice, we rode on a gondola but our pictures were very blurry and the driver wouldn't sing. Our driver at the Venetian more than made up for it. Not only did he sing, but danced for us as well. He had an amazing voice.
Here we are by the ride.
This is another picture in the hotel. The butterfly was actually made of flowers. I had such a good time I didn't want to leave.

But we missed the kids! Thank you honey for such a wonderful time. I love you more now than when we got married.
