Viva Las Vegas!

Where's the best place in the United States for a pastor and his pregnant wife to spend a few days of vacation?

Las Vegas, of course.

In perhaps one of the greatest Christmas presents ever, the in-laws gave us a four day/three night trip anywhere in the continental United States. After much deliberation, Kelly and I chose a place where we'd most likely never go with kids. And now, here we are in Sin City. The best way to describe it: Gatlinberg with gambling . . . and some billboards of half naked women. I'm averting my eyes, but still we're having a blast.

Fortunately we're staying in a hotel that doesn't have a casino in it, so it's a much tamer atmosphere. We made it in yesterday at noon Pacific time, got our rental car and checked in at the hotel. After getting a bite to eat at the famous In-N-Out Burger, we headed for some of the casinos on the Strip. We walked until our feet felt like they would fall off but, as we often do on our vactions, we saw everything. I'll post more later, but here's a pic from the fountains in front of the Bellagio for ya.
