Vegas, Day 2

Day two was all about relaxation.
Thanks to one of Laurie's coworkers who has a Hilton Club Membership, we got upgraded from the normal white hotel keys, to these black beauties,
which also gave us our own cabana at the hotel pool.
We spent the day lounging, tanning, reading, and talking - the perfect girl day.
Get it. You can't see our suits. Its funny.
After lounging and laughing all day, it was time to get ready for our night out.
Laurie got us all tickets to the show Le Reve The Dream at the Wynn,
and we had plans to eat at the Society Encore Cafe in the Encore.
Once we were all dressed and beautified, we left for the Wynn Hotel.
A problem we often encountered this weekend was needing a photographer - its tough when you want a group shot.
Occasionally, we would resort to taking a mirror pic.
Oops! The flash was on!
And of course the doors opened to let a middle aged man on as soon as I took the picture.
Mirror pic fail.
Luckily, a sweet girl in the hotel lobby volunteered to take it for us, if nothing else than to save us from another mirror pic.
We took a taxi to dinner and our show since the Wynn is pretty far down the strip.
It was quite the interesting taxi ride.
Between Laurie's seat being wet from the driver's drink, 
construction on Las Vegas Blvd (really Vegas?)
and the obscene temperatures in the back seat, we stayed very entertained.
We also learned that Claire has some crazy blind selfie skills!
Michael and I never went inside the Wynn or the Encore when we were in Vegas last year,
so I was not prepared for the beauty that awaited us.
It was incredible.
Our first stop was the box office to pick up our tickets. 
Good thing we went there first, because we found out that the show starts 30 minutes earlier than what we thought.
We still had time, but had to rush dinner a little.
And that was a real shame, because that food was good!
The ambiance was pretty nice too.
We even had a moose to guard our table.
I might have taken 3 or more pictures of it, but those details don't matter.
We made it to the theater just in time for the show.
I can't even describe how incredible this show was.
It is not a Cirque Du Soleil show, but is very similar, but this entire show is done in a huge round pool.
Every now and then a platform or stage type thing would rise out of the water,
but the entire performance was centered around synchronized swimming, water dancing, acrobatics, and crazy diving stunts.
It was breathtaking, start to finish.
If you are in Vegas, see Le Reve The Dream. 
You won't regret it!
After the show we ended the night walking around the Encore/Wynn some more.
We also had dessert at a restaurant in the Wynn.
It was here that I ordered the most delicious Mocktail ever.
It was called Raspberry Sparkle, which is obviously why I ordered it.
It was so yum!
It was the perfect ending to our second day in Las Vegas!


  1. An impressive share! I've just forwarded this onto a co-worker who has been conducting a little research on this.
    And he in fact bought me breakfast due to the fact
    that I found it for him... lol. So allow me to reword
    this.... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending
    the time to discuss this issue here on your blog.

  2. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    But think about if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts
    more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics
    and videos, this blog could certainly be one
    of the very best in its field. Good blog!
