Jeff and I wanted to take the kids on a trip before the baby is born. Jeff's parents were headed to Vegas so we joined them for the weekend. The three things on our to do list were Hoover Dam, the strip, and the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop. The second day we were there we drove to Hoover Dam and took a tour that takes you down inside the Dam.
It was chilly, but cool to see the big pipes and the generators....
As impressive as the Dam, you first see the bridge as you drive to the Dam. It's incredible and makes you feel rather insignificant due to it's massiveness.
I always think there will be so much for the kids to see on the strip but forget how much walking you have to do to get to the different places the kids would like. We walked around a little and waited for the fountains at the Bellagio to start. They were as impressive as always.
You can't do Vegas without eating at a buffet or two...our buffet of choice was the Bellagio. We liked it so much, we went there twice. The food and desserts were A-mazing. Jeff and I enjoy looking for famous people and got lucky when we ate lunch a few tables away from Mike Tyson. We wanted to get a picture with him, but he's not someone you really dare ask.
Jeff and Jaxon love watching the show Pawn Stars on the History Channel. We went to the shop one of the days....it was a short wait to get in and was cool to see some of the things that have been featured on the show.
