Vegas Baby!

My mom and I were able to take a girls trip to Vegas to see Bette Midler in concert. My Aunt Carol came with us too. We arrived in Vegas on Friday afternoon and went to our hotel at the Monte Carlo. After we checked in we went down to Caesar and ate at the Cheesecake Factory and then went shopping at Express, MY FAVORITE! Later that night my mom and her Bonnie went to see Donnie and Marie Osmond in concert at the MGM Grand. Carol and I did not have tickets so we hit the streets of Vegas. We had a lot of fun checking out everything and having girl time. On Saturday we got up early to run the strip in Vegas, we thought if we got up early enough that we would beat the heat. Obviously it was not early enough because we could feel the heat coming off the pavement at 6:45 in the morning. It was hot! We went down the pool to try and cool off but it felt like 115 degrees, there was no hope of a cool down. It was still fun to be at the pool and to lay out in Vegas!
Saturday night was the night we saw the famous Bette Midler! I grew up loving and listening to Bette so this was amazing to see her perform on the big stage in Vegas. She put on a great show!
My mom and I had a great time on our trip and we hope that we get to keep the tradition and do a girls trip every year!

Oh my goodness, that looks like soooo much fun! I remember your aunt Carole, it is fun to see a picture of her. Now you have sympathy for me, I took 17 credits one summer at UNLV walking around campus in all that heat carrying a backpack. Wow, the heat is incredible!
