    What started out as a 4 night trip ended up as a 3 night trip so that we could attend a family function at home today, and honestly, I think that's the perfect time in Vegas for us. Changing our plans meant missing out on the big Cosmo slot pull (total bummer), as well as the free Brad Paisley tickets offered to us (and apparently every other Mlife member), but you gotta do what you gotta do to keep family happy, I guess. Hoping to have another opportunity to meet up with other VF's in the future.

    The objective this trip was to relax, enjoy some pool time and hopefully, win a little $$. Spoiler alert, we were able to meet the objective, just barely. :)

    I'll post a few pictures to tell the story,

    We stayed at Aria. We’ve decided it isn’t our favorite. Room seemed smallish vs. our typical Palazzo or Caesar’s rooms and the bathroom is tiny in comparison. 9th floor, no view but it was ready at 11:00 am. LOL.
    FYI, Julian Serrano was closed for renovation if you have plans to dine there. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    We headed down to the pool and had a few too many drinks but fascinating conversation with a great guy from Australia who was in Vegas on business involving promotional work for the UFC. My husband is a big fan so he and the guy talked for a few hours and I had drinks and listened. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Dinner was at Nacho Daddy’s. No food pictures but we shared queso dip, spicy chicken wings, chicken quesadilla. Filling, good and fun place. [​IMG]

    Next day was Sky Pool day. Having the ability to reserve pool chairs was really our reason for choosing Aria this trip. I gave up a good offer at Palazzo because I didn’t want to deal with the chaos of the closed Venetian pool. The Sky Pool was terrific and we enjoyed our day. I actually reserved a chair for myself on the next day also. 2 days of sun and relaxing, perfect!! [​IMG]

    Aria gambol was nothing, nothing, zippo. Made my way to Bellagio where they have the new Munchkinland machine. Played on it for a while. Other peeps were lurking so I finally decided to walk away winner. [​IMG][​IMG]

    The conservatory at Bellagio is less than impressive. I think the Christmas theme is the only one that makes me say “wow”. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    On our last day husband and I split up so that he could play poker and enjoy some free time. I went to the Sky Pool alone for a while. After enough sun I decided to get cleaned up and head down to the North end of the strip and visit Venetian/Palazzo. The first machine I played was a Wicked Winnings machine. I don’t normally play this but I’m glad I did today. [​IMG]

    After playing on my winnings the husband met me and we had dinner at Grand Lux at Palazzo. Had my favorite shrimp scampi. [​IMG]

    On the walk back to Aria my husband stopped at The Linq and played poker and I walked to Caesars. Caesars was a complete madhouse so I left and walked to Cosmo. One chocolate martini and a few machines later, walked back to Aria to get ready for a very early flight the next morning. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    All in all, we had a great time. Thanks for reading. My next trip is probably to meet up with a good friend in December, leaving the husbands at home.

    Thanks for the report. Good hits!

    I think your first pic of the Conservatory sums it up. Even the characters don't care for it lol.

    Thanks for the report!

    I'm with you on not being a big fan of the Bellagio summer display. It's usually the least impressive of the five they do per year. The spring one was pretty great (there was a replica of Osaka Castle and some cool birds), as was the CNY one (pigs everywhere!).
