Surprise Vegas

This week for work I had to be in Kingman, AZ for 2 days.
Traveling overnight is something I really dislike about my job.

Luckily I have an awesome husband who drove up to stay with me the second night I was there (shhhh... top secret). When Ben got there at around 4pm he said "Let's go to Vegas"... so we did.

First we stopped at the Hoover Dam
to see the construction of the new bridge
which is awesome by the way.

We got onto the Vegas strip right around sundown
so all the lights were just coming on.
We drove down most of the strip to see everything before we parked since we knew it wouldn't be a long visit. 
We ate at a nice restaurant and ordered the cheapest things on the menu.

Then we went and watched the fountains at the Bellagio
before heading back Kingman.

It was a fun little trip. We both decided though that if we ever go to Vegas again we'd much rather be there during the day. There are too many people that like to drink too much alcohol there at night.

I went to Vegas for the first time this year. I had a surprisingly good time.

Oh how fun! I will agree Vegas during the day is a lot more family friendly... no one trying to snap porn in your face. *shudder
