Viva Las Vegas

We recently got back from our second adult-only sans-kids vacation. This time we spent a long weekend in Vegas with two other couples. It was a great time, once we survived the flight. Seriously, I have never been on a scarier flight. It's never a good sign when people are screaming because of the turbulence. Originally the Vegas airport was closed due to high winds, but then they opened a couple of runways and we were free to take off. The flight attendants had to stay in their seats. When we got close to Vegas, we were tossed around like dolls and must have dropped a couple of hundred feet. Everyone was petrified. When it was time to land the flight attendant actually announced "In case of an emergency evacuation, please leave your belongings behind". Ummm... why are they telling us this? Did the turbulence damage the plane? Are we unable to land correctly? This is not a good sign. Luckily we landed without incident and clapped profusely.

While in Vegas we:

Saw the sites

Hung out with friends

Enjoyed the view from our hotel room
Did some high-end shopping

Rode all the scary rides

Drank a few drinks

Played hours and hours of craps
(no picture available but imagine lots of cheering, high-fiving and money flying)

Hung out with SpongeBob
(picture available but censored)

And partied like rock stars

Looks like a great time was had by all!

Of course seeing the pics makes me want to go back again. We went for a week last July and miss it terribly.

So glad the flight landed OK. I hate that much turbulance on flights. Scary!!
