Hi guys!!!

Got off the plane around 10:30am nice flight really easy rental car pick up got a Chevrolet Traverse.  It is a lot bigger than are arranged car which was a Toyota Rav4. Ate at Dickey's barbecue it was very good. Staying at the New York New York hotel which is very fancy. About to go to M&M world across the street. Miss you guys a bunch! 

The rental car process was funny- James kept turning down the girl who kept trying to get him to upgrade for only $8 per day (remember we'll be here 26 days!).  She said we'd be more comfortable in the larger SUV, etc.  Turns out they didn't have the small SUV so after he declined the final time she said "Well we don't have many cars here today so I'll just give you the bigger car."  Moral of this story... don't upgrade-ha.

At the New York check in they wanted to upgrade us to a strip view for only a "Little bit more".  James declined once again and when they printed out the room they acted very surprised and said "Oh, you got a strip view anyway!".  We will never upgrade again.

New York- New York is VERY nice- We've seen 2 pizza joints,and at least 15 other restaurants.  For the Amy and Rick B. family - 2 Starbucks.  

We went to M&M World, the Coca Cola Store, New Orleans to eat at the French Market Buffet, drove down Las Vegas Boulevard and noticed people already lining up for the Bellagio fountain show, and then back here to New York-New York.  Food at the French Market was pretty good.  Desserts were wonderful.

It is 7:30 Pacific time and James is trying to get us to get out of the room and walk somewhere.  It's 10:30 our time and Noah is trying to crash.  I'll write tomorrow who wins.

I hope you have a great time there. I liked your picture of the crawfish. It was funny that Noah just played with the pinchers. I also thought your coca cola picture was funny. I miss you and I love you.

When you are on a trip like you are taking there is NO TIME TO SLEEP. Sleep when you get back to Virginia. Don't be wimps. Still don't like you all.
