I had to put this picture up here to prove that Debbie, who usually gets sick playing video games, actually does play. I also have this as evidence against the video game hater Lindsey...she used to get so mad at Adam and I for playing video games. At least they were having fun.
We spent some time as couples at GameWorks, but Adam and I spent a few hours there the next day. We were able to defeat some four to six different arcade games that would have cost us a small fortune back in the day.
Here we are out front of the Monte Carlo where we stayed while in Vegas. We had a great deal of fun being away from work and the hectic every day life that seemed to never have a break.
Here are the Shumways out front of the hotel. We all enjoyed our first night in Vegas after a long day of driving. Much thanks to Adam for being a trooper and driving the entire time. Thanks to the Shumways as well for offering the use of their nice SUV to get us there. That first day there we had a typical male/female miscommunication. Adam and I asked the ladies to go down and get the Danny Gans tickets for that night. The men were thinking they would head to the concierge desk to pick up the tickets at our hotel lobby. Nope, they walked all the way to the Mirage to get the tickets. In the end, the seats were great...our own box seat.
However, the result was that poor Debbie got some nasty blisters in the same spot on both of her feet. She was quite the trooper however, she still went to the show and even went browsing around Caesars for a while after the show.
While walking around that night, Debbie got thirsty...who wouldn't when it is still over 90 degrees after the sun has gone down. Anyway, we learned that there are no drinking fountains anywhere in the hotel and casinos. So, at a indoor cafe, I bought a small bottle of water...$4.58!!! She said that is didn't even taste all that different. Be still my cheap, cheap heart.
Finally, here is a picture of Adam and I thrilled to being interrupted in our game play whilst at GameWorks.
All in all, it was a fantastic trip. Debbie and I had a great dining experience at the Bellagio right before we say the most amazing show ever. We saw the Cirque du Soleil show called O. I will never think of the circus, acrobatics, or water in the same way ever. It was absolutely amazing.
The trip was amazing and was exactly what we needed. You have to remember that we have never taken at trip before that was just us for more than one day. I think after 8 1/2 years of marriage and around 7 years of fertility treatments and trials, we deserved it. Especially Debbie...after all, she has survived all of those treatments and she has survived me. What can I say...I am one lucky man.
