Leaving on a Jet Plane for Fabulous Las Vegas

Ah....life is getting stressful! Time to leave on a jet plane! Too many added fees on these airlines and hotels! Oh My Goodness! A girl can not even have fun without paying ridiculous fees! But I have a list of free attractions including Ethel M's Chocolate Factory and Hershey's! A girl and chocolate....heavenly!
The Bellagio Fountains will dance for you for free and that is a great start!
Be careful wandering through these beautiful gardens at the Flamingo, although they are free, you might see some naughty Flamingos. They just don't care who is looking !
You can watch the Volcano erupt at the Mirage too after dark! It is another free attraction.

We were alone for about five minutes when we took this selfie. We aren't selfie people so it was not a terrific photo. We sure had fun visiting int he early morning hours before all the the crowds woke up from their slumber!
We wore our matching Avenger shirts and got lots of great compliments from people passing by. We were having breakfast at a cool locally owned establishment. I like supporting local businesses off the strip. This was Blueberry Hill, established in 1966 and serving great meals since 1987.

We had breakfast here twice and the first time I had blueberry crepes with fresh blueberries and fresh blueberry compote. The second time I tried the delicious Coconut Fried Chicken and Waffles with honey butter. Heavenly!
Noelle showed off the Blueberry Hill menu. It was a great experience.

Ready for take off, this was my honey on Wednesday August 5th getting ready to fly those friendly skies.
I was happy to take a break but there were many bumps during this trip. fortunately not on the flight there!
We stayed at Harrah's, not our favorite place but at least the beds were comfy and the room was always clean.
Noelle took this silly shot on the tram to Treasure Island. She calls it "The Larry's". There is Bret, Hannah, Nick, Brittany and Jeremy acting very silly.  "Larry" is a Jeremy thing. Everyone he likes he calls "Larry"! I am hoping Ms. Jenny and the Alphabe Thursday participates will enjoy this "L" post for Las Vegas. Although I missed out on Blue Monday I hope Sally and all the Blues will come over and check out the blues I shared throughout my post.
Mr. Kitty was not happy that I left him for so long. Poor baby. He would not look into the camera. I wanted to share this with Sandee and everyone who visits Aw...Monday but since I did not have internet on the plane and drove to Limon with my hubby to drop Nick off at his coach's phamily ranch for training I was too exhausted to put anything up so late last night.

I can not close without sharing a Love is....this one is especially important to me today because of a situation my hubby had with a relative. His attitude and kind heart makes me want to stick to him like glue always and forever. I will share more Las Vegas memories, the good, the bad and the ugly. See you soon.

Visit Ms. Jenny and the folks who shared the letter "L" for Las Vegas, Leaving Las Vegas and Loving Las Vegas!

My goodness, you certainly were having some serious fun!! I love the photos, especially the one of the flamingoes. I think these birds are simply beautiful.

I've never been to Las Vegas. All I know about it is what I see in the movies or from someone else's photos. Maybe some day I'll get to see it, but for now I'm happy seeing it through other folks' eyes.

I can't wait to see more of your photos. Have a super day, hugs. Edna B.
