Fun in Vegas

Becky & Sara came to see me this weekend. We had so much fun! I haven't seen my sister since Christmas, so it was really nice to see her & Sara. I haven't really made any friends since moving here, so I've been lonely & desperate for a friend! I think the highlights of our trip were going to see "O" at the Bellagio. It is a Cirque du Soleil act & it is done mostly in an 80 ft. deep tank of water. It was awesome!! We couldn't take pictures inside the show, but I got a couple of pictures of one of the costumes they wear that was on display. We also went to see The Titanic exhibit at the Tropicana. It was really neat too. They had real life replicas of the dock & how it would've looked that night. When you walked out onto it, it was freezing just like it would've been that night & there were stars in the sky & the water moving by. It was so cool. They also had a replica of the grand staircase that was in the Titanic and what the 3rd & 1st class cabins looked like. And, of course they had a lot of stories of the people on the titanic & stuff that was salvaged from the ship. Before you walk in, they give you a ticket of a passenger that was on the Titanic & at the end you have to look their name up to see if they survived. All 3 of us had 1st class passenger tickets & they all survived. But, it had all the names listed of those that survived and died that night. So many died - so sad! We had a great time getting only complaint - I wish they could've stayed longer! Come back soon Becky & Sara! Love ya!
