Well hello one and all, for the next 3 nights I'll be writing the blogs as for next 4 days I will probably be  husband less. It is 11pm Thursday night and Cam has gone towards the lights. There is far too much temptation for Cameron, he is like a kid in a candy store, or Charlie in a chocolate factory. 
Well lets begin our night, after driving past a massive outlet complex 45minutes out of Vegas (how can they do that to a female I mean who puts Chanel products starting from $2 out in the sticks). Anyway we sat back waiting for that first glimpse of Vegas and it is true as you drive  along in the distance you see tall buildings just rising from nowhere surrounded by flatness, it is a pretty cool site.
After arriving at the flamingo we had a bit of a walk to our hotel, but after walking about a km, we had to catch a taxi and as we soon realized taxis can't take fares off the strip, you have to be at a stand or your hotel, so good old cam decided to pretend he was a departing guest from the bellagio, even telling the valet that we were on our way to the airport, just so we could get a taxi (the valets are very particular about who gets into their cabs at their hotel). Anyway after getting into the taxi Cam tells the taxi driver Excalibur please which confused the driver as the valet had told him the airport, after a Little explanation we where on our way. Wow the kids could not believe we were staying in a castle, it does look cool especially at night. After entering our room, we realized we could not stay in thisroom, the view was of the airport and only one casino as we are at the southern end of the strip. So after little while and a few dollars extra, we had a room with a view of the strip as well as las Vegas. I would post the photos now but cams taken the camera with him.  After settling in and the kids had won half the toys in the arcade area, we walked to the bellagio for dinner. My goodness the food, a buffet, and to the embarrassment of his parents Sean exclaims "hey, this is just like sizzler's". The buffet was amazing all types of seafood, a Japanese bar,  Asian noodle bar salads soups, carvery desserts, and not just any old food, most of it flown in fresh from around the world. Hey Dave you're right the buffet is awesome. After stuffing our faces it was off to look at the lights, we didn't get far as the bellagio fountain started. A choreographed water and steam display set to music, this one to My heart will go on, it was truly breath taking. After watching we decided to go back to the hotel as the kids were cold and tired, so the rest of the light seeing will be happening tomorrow night and so good folks that is  where i will leave you until tomorrow night, same time same bat channel oh and probably husband less again unless he loses all his money tonight.
Take care all until next i blog
luv char xxoo
