Steve Martin & Martin Short

Ahhh...we could get used to this start to the day:

This afternoon we went for an early supper to Giordanos:

Then walked the strip:


where we saw this show:

Our seats were high:

but the show was fantastic!

and hilariously funny:

It was a good last full day in Las Vegas...

Again, we spent the day soaking in the sun and the heat. Our friends drove out to Zion National Park but Conrad and I opted to stay back and just enjoy the sun. I finished my 5th and 6th book!

and Conrad wanted me to take this to prove you can sweat in a "dry" heat:

and then we showered and dressed for dinner:

at Cracker Barrel:

and then returned to our hotel after 10:00 and it was still nearly 40 degrees:

We love the heat!

Hoover Dam

I woke up early and then dozed off and woke up at 11:00! I used find my friends to find Conrad and sometimes the app is really accurate:

After an afternoon by the pool, we drove to visit Hoover Dam with our friends. 

You can't capture the size of it in photos:

We walked across the dam to see these views:

and I straddled two states:

and I snapped these photos from the dedication site of the Dam:

It was a bit windy:

but we were still able to get some great pictures:

See Hoover Dam is now checked off the bucket list.

sun and show

The day started with more predictable Vegas weather and our favourite Vegas vacation view:

Followed by a walk on the Strip:

and taking in the show "O" at the Bellagio:

Even from our high seats...

we had an awesome view of the stage:

and the amazing decorative ceiling:

and what a fantastic show!

Then dinner at Planet Hollywood:

and we realized too late that we could have enjoyed dinner on the patio with this view! (Next time!)

We met up with our friends and did a late night Fremont Street visit to end our day:

Rain in Vegas?!

This is our 4th trip to Vegas and every time we have been here the weather has been awesome. Sun, blue skies, and gorgeous temperatures. Today when we woke up it was raining...I honestly thought: "what? How can it be raining in Vegas?!!" Conrad looked it up and Vegas gets about 21 days of rain a year. 21. Days. A. Year. Seriously. I live in the wrong place.

So we started the day with a little outlet mall shopping instead of the pool:

By the afternoon, the rain had ended and we did spend some time by the pool before dinner at Battista's:

and then a walk around the strip in the evening:

Hard to believe I'll be seeing the real Eiffel Tower soon:
