sun setting on our Vegas trip :(

one last go of the slots before we leave!

looking like I won.... but I didn't!

Mazz and I on the airport train
Today Mazz, Jaina and I had a look at The Hard Rock hotel - The pool was supposed to be amazing but it was closed :( It looked like in summer it would be awesome though, guess we'll have to come back in summer!! Then we went to The Stratosphere - the casino with rides on top, like the big shot - 1081 feet off the ground! and xscream, a claw type ride that goes out over the strip at 866 foot above! and Insanity the ride, a roller coaster that goes off the side of the building 64 feet above the strip! Luckily I'm not in the slightest bit scared of height so I thought it was FUN, Mazz on the other hand...!
Our next stop was The Graceland Chapel where my mum and Dougie got married nearly 2 years ago, luckily there were no weddings on, so we got to go in and have a look! The it was off to Rio for the biggest buffet lunch ever, I had to take it easy on the lunch part so that I could fit in desert, because it was to.die.for! I tried Red Velvet cake too, now I understand why all you Americans are in love with it!
Poor Ma was sick today and had a sleep while we had lunch :( We then drove through The Strip to the airport under an amazing sunset bound for LAX.
When we arrived at LAX we picked up a hire car (The sexy bus - you'll get to see pictures of him later!) and drove to Huntington Beach - surf city USA. We're staying at the Best Western, a weird little room but awesome location and beautiful views. Dougie, Mazz and I ventured out for a late dinner and had In 'n' Out... umm, OMG, YUM!!
