We now take a break from the recent holiday pictures to show you instead some pictures from our weekend trip to Vegas, which was more of a mini-getaway than a holiday and is only referred to as a holiday here in order to keep consistent labels.

I should also, being honest, let you know that the photo of the woman who played Tanya in Mamma Mia was taken, not during the weekend, but the previous Wednesday.

It was a fun trip. I forgot how much I enjoy Vegas. Nikki discovered previously untapped roulette skills. We went to downtown Las Vegas too, we'd only ever been to the strip before, so that was pretty cool. We're very tempted to stay there next time we go. The Golden Nugget has one of those big slidey tube things into its' swimming pool that actually runs through a shark tank at one point. It's transparent, but I assume you're moving pretty quickly, so I'm not sure how much time you would have to get freaked out, but still, pretty cool.

I have yet to discover how much I love Vegas, 'cos I've never been. I am promised as to "one day" though. That oughta be fun!

Looks like you had a great time!

Happy 4th! Wait. Do the English celebrate the 4th or is that a sore spot?

Who you calling English? Anyway, we live in Texas, which was Mexican on July 4th, 1776, so we've as much right to celebrate it as anyone else round here.

A big slidey transparent tube that runs through a shark tank... only in Vegas.

I loved Vegas, the only place where time travel is actually possible!

Vegas is not all it's cracked up to be. Aside from all the slot machines WHICH I LOVE, there's not much to do. Unless you're into strippers. Which I'm not. Seriously, I'm not. Stop looking at me like that.

But they have Mamma Mia in Vegas! The second greatest musical of all time. (out of the 4 that I've seen).
