viva las vegas!

josh and i went to vegas for new years with his parents, and of course, i never posted the pics. it was a blast! the weather was freezing, but other than that it was great. we saw KA, the cirque de soleil show, and the lion king. we also went on the vegas version on the price is right, which was great! it wasn't televised or anything, but it was a lot of fun. none of us got to play though. :( we also walked around A LOT and looked at all the hotels. we took a tour bus to the hoover dam one day and had an excellent tour guide. we also ate lots of food! good food too! here are some pics to highlight the trip....enjoy!

josh and i in front of the MGM lion in the lobby...the first day we got there to check in this area was insanely packed because some of the UFC fighters were there doing a press conference. it was cool!

galen and kaye with $1,000,000 at binions...this is on freemont street in old downtown

awesome view of the strip from the top of the eiffel tower

the christmas displays in the hotels were amazing! this was in the bellagio...

cool pic of our hotel

caesar's palace was my favorite :)

the weather looks amazing...but it was cold! it snowed the last day we were there!

this was the guy handing out programs at the entrance to KA. that play was amazing. the theatre was crazy fancy, with speakers in the headrest of each seat. the set was awesome and the stage moved all over the place...rotated, flipped, disappeared, stood upright...insane!

josh and i spent new years at the coyote ugly. not quite our style, but it was still fun!

at midnight we walked out onto the strip. they had all the roads blocked off from traffic and thousands of people were just crowded everywhere! it reminded me of the pics of NYC on new years. at midnight they had a count down and lots and lots of fireworks. it was the best new years we've ever had!

the price is right! they used the old set pieces from the TV version. it was neat!

the bridge at the hoover dam...finally finished! it's cool, because if you look back at my blog of my vegas trip with the youth choir, there is probably a pic of this bridge before it is complete. it's a really neat bridge, and of course, josh loved this part of the trip. :) what an engineer!
that's it! hope you liked the pics!
