Vegas Vacation

I got to attend the ADA convention in Vegas
(Which was AWESOME)
It landed over my fall break so we decided to make a vacation out of it!
We booked the Grandview Condos
(which are great if you need a family place to stay in Vegas)
Here are some highlights of our week's stay!!
What Vegas visit wold be complete without a sighting of Elvis?
Not a day goes by that someone does not tell my DH (dear husband)
 that he looks like Donnie Osmond.
You can't see it well, but Donnie and Marie are on the Flamingo Hilton.
Had to get a picture of Chris with his look-alike.

All the kids wanted to do was...
You guessed it.  Swim!! 

Taylor gets REALLY EXCITED about her french fries with ketchup.

Ashlie just likes the camera = no matter what!!

Chris loves random photos of himself
(okay, maybe not.  I have to work really hard to get him to smile!!)

We ventured out to the strip.
Cam was fascinated with all the lights.
We got stuck at a traffic light and couldn't figure out what was going on.
We hear this horrendous roar coming down the street.
Turns out we were right in time to watch the indy cars
drag race down Vegas Boulevard!!
We got to watch them do laps around the Bellagio Hotel.
We had a front-row seat to watch all the indy cars race up and down the boulevard.

Here's cam, fascinated with the cars.
They were moving so fast I wasn't able to get a picture of them.

After the cars came by, their pit crews followed.  Cam was so excited,
waiving and smiling.  The head of ABC Racing stopped, shook his hand and gave him his hat.
Cam has not let that hat out of his sight!
The girls in front of my favorite spot in Vegas, the Bellagio fountains.

Inside the Bellagio Atrium - decked out for fall. 
The tree was talking to us!
Cameron didn't believe us the gold man was not a statue.
He dropped some money in the "statue" cup
and the statue came to life!  Cam freaked for a minute,
then climbed up on the golden box.

Taylor's new "do"

Swimming under the waterfall

Time to head home.  Kids didn't want to leave
the pool.  Made for a fun fall break!
Now, back to the books, back to school.
Midterms are here - which means I'm halfway done with my 1st semester.
