Las Vegas

Rosa and I got married in the middle of winter semester last year; leaving very little time for a honeymoon. We stayed a few nights in Salt Lake with the intention of doing something fun once we had more time. We finally got to do that this past week as we stayed three nights in the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Waiting for our flight.

Our hotel

The view from our room. We played the "we're on our honeymoon" card and they gave us a room with a sweet view. Obviously, it was even cooler at night. But I forgot to get a picture. Whoops.

Mirage Volcano

The Strip

We spent most of our time doing touristy stuff like walking the strip and seeing the free shows there. The volcano at the Mirage was cool but the fountain show at the Bellagio is definitely the coolest free thing to do.

Side note about the strip: Utilize any public transportation. The hotels look close together but man do you walk a lot. Las Vegas Monorail FTW

Our last night we went and saw The Lion King at Mandalay Bay. It was INCREDIBLE. Definitely worth the price of admission.

Unfortunately, we didn't take very many pictures. Neither of us are very good at remembering to bring a camera or actually use it when we do bring it. It also didn't help that my camera was being weird and would not take a focused picture. They almost always came out blurry.

We had a blast on our late honeymoon though. It was nice to get away from Provo and spend some time together. It also helped that the MGM has a killer pool complex that we spent most of our days at. Seriously, it's awesome. There's like 5 pools and a lazy river. I know there's a lot of crap in Vegas but we managed to have a good time and avoid the garbage. It was a fun trip and we look forward to going back.
