So we left for a couples weekend in Las Vegas on Friday night. I was excited to get away without the kiddos. We booked our room at the hotel Vdara. I hadn't ever heard of the place but it was GREAT! It's part of the CityCenter in the middle of the strip. It is a smoke free, green hotel, without a casino. The CityCenter has a mall called Crystals and it has very upscale stores like Louis Vutton and such in it and then also there is the Aria which we didn't see, but it is another hotel with a casino. The Vdara was so great. I never realized that having the smoke free hotel would be so great. I mean sure you think about it...but it didn't really occur to me until we walked into the lobby to check in. The lobby just smelled so nice and fresh. So I took some pictures of our awesome room. The pictures aren't really in order, they got a little messed up when I was uploading them.
Then we headed over to MGM to see the Cirque Du Soleil show called KA. I didn't know this but we had 2nd row seats and it was so cool. The show is one with a sort of plot and it was just amazing the acrobatics that the performers did. Truly worth the money.
After the show we headed over to get a taxi, the taxi line was SOOOOO long and since I was wearing my new boots with a moderate heel, and because I thought we were closer to the tram than we were I decided I would walk back as opposed to waiting in line. Probably should have waited, because after all the walking we did earlier that day my poor pregnant muscles and feet were burning once we got back home.
Sunday morning we got a bagel from the little market downstairs and then got ready for our couples massage at 11am. The spa is in the hotel and so we just went downstairs and got checked in for our relaxing. I was still a little sore from the night before and when I was getting ready I opened the bathroom stall door onto my barefoot. They give you flip flops to wear ya know and the door wasn't high like a stall but it wasn't like a regular door either it had about a 2 inch clearance from the floor. Since I have a hard time seeing my feet these days (big belly and all) I opened the door right into the top of my foot, it hurt so bad and I was limping around during my massage. But the massage was good and if I ever go back without being pregnant I am taking advantage of that spa!
The rest of the day we walked around and took the tram to the Bellagio and had lunch. We checked out a few tables and slots and then headed back to the hotel to watch the rest of the SuperBowel and order some more room service. It was very relaxing especially eating some chocolate covered strawberries.
All in all we had a great weekend walking around eating and relaxing, just enjoying each others company and if I ever go back to Vegas to vacation..I am hoping I can stay at the Vdara again!
These pictures I took of the kids before we left..I think on Friday, just so we could get a kid fix in.
