Las Vegas Day 3

Day 3 - Tuesday, December 9
(See days 1&2 below)
This day was a bit more relaxed & slow-going...which was nice after all the excitement of Monday. The day started out after breakfast at our hotel's buffet. It was good...but not worth the hefty price they charged for it! We then took the monorail to Harrah's, and then walked from there to the Venetian, and then on to the Sands Convention Center, where another Country Christmas shopping area was held. (Can you believe that Steve CHOSE to go shopping for 2 days in Vegas?? I can't!) It was a good thing we did though, because there was a Twisted X booth, and they had the boots in stock that Steve has been wanting to try out. We didn't get them while we were there because they were likely marked up, but guess what Steve's getting for Christmas??? (once we get them ordered from our favorite western store!)
As we walked along, we found some fun picture opportunities...

Kim & the Blue Man Group

We found a friend!

Steve & the Travelocity Gnome...If I would have backed up, you'd see that Steve has his hands in his pockets just like the gnome. If only he had a pointy hat!

As we made our way back to our hotel, we strolled through the Flamingo and looked at the...Flamingos! :-)

We also ate at Jimmy Buffet's Cheeseburger in Paradise, aka Margaritaville, which was SO good! I had a strawberry-banana drink that was out of this world! As we ate we listened to Jimmy Buffet tunes, and viewed some Parrothead videos project onto ship sails throughout the restaurant. When the song Margaritaville was played, the room went dark, and a volcano above us started to erupt. It was really fun!

After resting up in our room, we made our way to the Imperial Palace to catch the shuttle to the rodeo. It was another exciting night of action! Lots of fun! We also picked up our rodeo souveniers on the way out. Can't wait to go again soon!
