Federico in Las vegas

We had a VERY full weekend showing Federico some of the sights in Las Vegas. On Wednesday night we checked in the Paris, and he marveled at the replicas of the Eiffel
Tower and Arc de Triomphe. It was awesome seeing his face and hearing his gasps in Italian as we approached the Strip from the freeway, and then turned onto Flamingo and Las Vegas Blvd with all the lights.

We had a late dinner, and wandered a bit, checking out the Bellagio fountains across the street.

On Thursday morning we visited the pool, and then the Fashion Show Mall, where Federico hit his favorite store, Abercrombie and Fitch, and bought a shirt. I did some damage at Norstrom and Sur la Table, and bought three pair of shoes.

We had lunch at the beautiful Wynn Hotel.

Next we saw the inside of the Bellagio, the Chihuly Glass in the lobby, and the conservatory of flowers.

We watched the Fountain show, and I got teary, as they played the Star Spangled Banner followed by Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman singing Time to Say Goodbye.
(Federico and I figured they played those just for the two of us.)

We gave Federico a few hours of "free time" to wander the Miracle Mile shops and hang out by the pool. We gathered some points on video poker, and visited our favorite happy hour until meeting up at our room before dinner.

More photos to come, but now I must go get ready for an afternoon party at our house!

Las Vegas is an amazing sight! It's always fun to arrive after dark, especially with first time visitors.

I love Federico's Johnny Cash T-shirt. I assume he is a fan? Great choice!
