Trip out West - Part 2...

The second and third day of the trip was scheduled for Las Vegas. We left that morning for the 4 hour drive. The trip was fun, we fell back into the normal routine of jokes, singing and dancing in the car. (By the way Amy's mom would not approve of our car antics.) We stopped at a tourist spot on the way called Peggy Sue's 50's Diner. There were big dinosaurs out in front and the whole thing was 50's themed. It was actually sorta creepy inside it put me in the mind of that movie "House of Wax". We got outta there as fast as we could.
When we finally arrived in Vegas we had enough time to get cleaned up and get dressed for our night out. Amy's friend Nicole met us out there and her parents live in Vegas so her mom joined us that night for dinner and show. We went to a placed called Dick's Last Resort and it was fun. All the waiters are loud and obnoxious and make you wear silly hats. After that we went to the Thunder from Down Under show. I won't explain it but you can google it later.

When we left there we went over to Ceasers Palace to a club called Pure. It was a really neat setup inside with multi level dance floors and a great outside balcony area that overlooked part of the strip. This was also the club that the Pussycat Dolls performed in nightly so we got to see some of that as well. We had a fun night celebrating Amy's birthday and once again got to bed very late.
