Free Night in Vegas!

When I bought my truck back in April I had the choice of either shooting a basketbal from the free throw line for a hundred dollars or choosing a coupon of a free night, a free prime rib dinner, and a free adult beverage. I can't shoot, so I chose the coupon. Cash and I used the free night and dinner coupon we didn't need the free beverage since neither one of us drinks, plus I'm not old enough anyways.

So we reached Vegas Tuesday did some shopping and checked into the room, which was actually very nice, it was recently remodeled with all modernized rooms and the restraunt was really good too. After we relaxed for a bit we drove down the strip and passed by The Pawn Shop that is aired on the History Channel. I kind of wanted to go in, but we didn't have time, I will meet Chumlee sometime in the near future though.

We went to the Shark Reef at the Mandalay Bay which was pretty awesome. Cash has been to the Shark Reef before, but I haven't so I made the executive decision that he would have to go again. While in the reef we walked through and saw some really cool animals.

I wish I thought hard enough to get a picture of me whle we were in the sting ray area with the Jelly Fish and the Giant Octopus they gave you the opportunity to touch a sting ray. Cash didn't want to do it so I went ahead and put my finger on it. I'm not gonna lie, I was pretty nervous hoping nothing would go wrong and I'd lose my finger. It felt like that dark slippery mud near the edge of the river or lake that you somehow stepped into and it just feels really weird.

I touched that thing!!

After the Shark Reef we both got a bit tired since Vegas is an hour behind us, by the time we got back to the room it was about 10 Utah time. Yeah, I know, that doesn't seem very late, but I think traveling wore both us out pretty good.

So the next day we were hungry but wanted to try a buffet. Well, the one we wanted to go to was the Saharra Buffet, yeah, it closed down for good about a year and a half ago. So we just decided to go back to the mall and then hit the Coke and M&M store and then grab mine and Ellen's (Cash's mom) cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory. Which was tasty bytheway!

Just trying to get into the parking lot for the Cheesecake Factory was a challenge since it's in Ceasar's Palace. First of all, they don't really make it clear on to where you're supposed to turn, two we missed the turn, not once, not twice, but actually three times!! Cash was getting so fed up he just wanted to go home, but I was determined to get our to die for cheesecake!! FINALLY, we got what we needed and then we left for the travel home. YAY!

Oh, and P.S. sorry it's a long post.

Haha that's true, Libby does have super duper long posts. This is just long for me. I didn't even think about asking you if you wanted one. I'm sorry :( Next time I go down I'll make sure I bring one back just for you.
