anniversary - vegas edition

Stephen and I recently returned from five fun filled nights in one of our favorite places...Vegas! This year we treated ourselves to a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon. It was our first time in Arizona...even if it was only for half an hour. The flight was 45 mins in each direction and we flew over the Hoover Dam and Lake Meade. The scenery was incredible! Sure glad we flew first thing in the morning because even with air conditioning in the 'copter it was still hot.

After the so-so summer we have had here in BC, it was a real treat to bask in some of that 100+ degree heat. And nothing says Nevada like wandering around at 10 o'clock at night when the temp is still in the 90's!

This year we saw Monty Python's Spamalot (what a riot) and Cirque's O (one of our favorites).

What a way to finish off celebrating this special anniversary with my sweetie. Love you, Stephen!!

Here are some pics.

Goodness! That makes me want to go there!
Can you see in the photo of the dam's lake there is a bit which looks like a Roman or Greek amphitheatre going down into the water?
