Las Vegas in 24 hours

 

Partly to celebrate John’s birthday and partly to introduce Pia and Bella to Las Vegas, all six set out to enjoy what at one point looked like 115 degrees (46 celcius) in the shade. As it turned out the temperature never went higher than 100 but only after Las Vegas was mentioned in the national news because of severe thunderstorms that brought hail with them. The flight was therefore diverted all the way to Los Angeles to avoid the stormy weather before making a left turn.

 

John and Olivia were lucky to set next to a couple of winemakers who had brought samples of the their wines. The extra hour of flying time came in handy for that reason. Good stuff – look up Enriquez Wines and Vokel Cellars if you’re ever in the Healdsburg area.

 

The trusted Mandarin Oriental was the base for the 24 hours in Nevada. All jumped in a cab and drove to The Wynn hotel and slowly made their way to the Bellagio where Olivia treated all to the ‘O’ show by Cirque de Soleil. Dinner was consumed at Otto in the Venetian. Despite Adriana begging the urge to ride the gondolas was resisted and the Venetian remained a visual-only experience.

 

Isabella had unfortunately caught some stomach bug days before leaving and the effects were still very much present upon takeoff from Oakland airport. She was unfortunately uable to join the rest of the family for the dinner and show and instead rested in the hotel room. It helped and she felt much better then second day of the trip.

 

The following day was mostly spent relaxing on the strip and ride the roller coaster at the New York New York hotel. Adriana was deemed too short during the last visit, so she was thrilled when she was allowed on the bumpy ride this time around.

 

After a burger at Bobby’s Burger Palace and a quick scoop of Pinkberry, it was time to fly back so that they could all join the rest of the family for an early 4th of July dinner at the MPCC Beach House in Carmel.
