Fabulous Las Vegas!

With all the excitement of late I have not had a chance to tell so all about our fabulous holiday to Las Vegas!We had the best time! I don't really know where to begin! Don't worry I'm not going to bore you to death, but there will be some photos to look at!We stayed in the Planet Hollywood, Check in took a while and we were tired from the flight but we soon felt better when they upgraded us to a huge room! The rooms are all movie themed with stills and props from the films, we had 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' room! Such a great movie!

Vegas is a crazy place and we spent a lot of time being silly!

Breakfast was Starbucks, I love it!

I think even James (a hardcore Costa fan) Was converted!

As well as our breakfast ritual we also got very fond of 'Fat Tuesdays' cocktails (think slush puppies for grown ups!) We drank a few 'Yard Dogs' (yards of cocktail!) Here is James enjoying his first one!

We quickly learned not to drink these at lunchtime when we fell asleep and lost a whole afternoon!

The hotels are fabulous! Every detail is thought about in the themed hotels, they feel like Disney World for grown ups!


The Venetian


Monte Carlo

To name but a few! If you ever go to Vegas or have ever been you will know what I mean when I say WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES! (my feet were throbbing!)

My favourite is Ceasar's Palace though, I can't tell you how big this place is! And so gorgeous, we have already decided we will stay there if we visit again! (not got any decent photos though!) Not to mention that my favourite restaurant, the Cheescake Factory is there (we may have eaten there once or twice!)

That's enough for today! Sorry for the lengthy post, I promise the next post will be shorter!!!

Lots of Love
