We're off. Bright and early on Friday morning. My little brother Tim drove. Hi Tim! He's a Dodger fan!!!
It was a beautiful day for a drive.
Almost there now.
The Celine show was that evening. So after relaxing for a little while in our rooms......
we headed on down to Caesar's Palace to get our tickets at Will Call, and then have dinner. Right there in Caesar's is Bobby Flay's restaurant, Mesa Grill. I don't have any pictures, but can I just say, it was FABULOUS! If you ever get the chance to go there, I hope you do. Such a wonderful meal we had!! Then on to the show. Where no photos were allowed once Celine came on.
Our seats were fantastic! About 6th row, to the right. Celine works the entire stage, and we enjoyed every second of her show. She is incredible, with a voice that is truly an instrument.
Probably the best show I have ever seen!!!
My younger brother Tim, is a huge fan of Celine's. He probably doesn't look the type, does he? Big tough guy. John Wayne is his hero. Was a big football stud in high school. Drives a monster truck. Has a man cave in his house. But.....He.....Loves.....Celine!!!! He lied to his buddies and told them he was escorting his Mama and sister to see her. Hah!! He went all weak in the knees as soon as he saw that giant poster at the entrance to the stadium. And when the show was over, he ran straight to the gift shop for his souvenir.
Tuff Guy-Schmuff Guy. He's a fan!!!
On Saturday my Mom rented a cabana, and we enjoyed the warm day and pool. I have no photos. Greg left our point & shoot in the room. Later on that day, he and my brother wanted to go find the Pawn shop from the reality tv show Pawn Stars.
They said that they were glad they saw it. But the guys from the show were not there. That night we ate at Chart House. Then did a little gambling. I was able to win back my money, and broke about even. Tim hit a 400 dollar jackpot and cashed it out right away. Mom usually wins, but not this time. Greg spent his time betting the basketball games. No luck for him either. Oh well. We had a great time! My brother made us get up at the crack of dawn on Sunday and we were on the road by 6:30 a.m. to beat the traffic. It was nice to get home in time to do a few things on Sunday. And we had a wonderful trip. This was a Christmas gift from my Mom to Greg and I, and my brother Tim. We thoroughly enjoyed it!!! Thank you Mama!!! It was so much fun!!!
