I just got home from a wonderful and relaxing three days in Las Vegas with Kenny.  I know it was a fun trip because I arrived home and immediately came down with bronchitis. This was our third annual trip to Vegas and we stayed at the Wynn again.  The Wynn is our absolute favorite place to stay for so many reasons.  We don't really like to gamble but we do like to go to the spa and lay by the pool and the Wynn is amazing in both of these areas.  

This trip we did not really plan out too much and kind of decided what we wanted to eat and what we wanted to do as we went and we ended up eating at some of the best restaurants that we have been to in our past stays. We also had some company this year in our friends Jay and Margaret.  Margaret works for Kenny and had to be out there for furniture market too and her husband, Jay had never been to Las Vegas before.  We had such a great time together.  We spent most of our time relaxing by the pool.
The Wynn always has the most beautiful floral arrangements.  This carousel made us think of Elle.  I did not get a picture of the equally beautiful hot air balloon on the other side of the lobby.

One night we ate a delicious dinner at Olives at the Bellagio and then went to see "O." Kenny and I were happy to check this one off the list because everyone just raves about it.  It did not disappoint!  I love the shows that have the water element!

Since the show did not start until 10 we got out pretty late (probably the reason I got sick) and so we went out to watch the famous Bellagio fountains because Jay had not seen them before.  However we did not know that the fountains stopped going at midnight.  After we waited a half hour we googled it and felt stupid.  But we did get some cute pictures while we waited!

After we all finally piled in cab and headed back to the Wynn we stopped for some desert in the resorts cafe.  
Jay could not decided what he wanted. 
Speaking of desserts.  I have mentioned that Walker has given me a sweet tooth so these are a few of the desserts I sampled one day at lunch.  Most of them were delicious!

Our last day we all went to the spa where I had a heavenly prenatal massage.  Just getting to lay on my stomach was  real treat.  Then we spent ALL DAY at the pool before heading to the Palazzo for some shop browsing and dinner.  
We had to stop in Tory Burch and the boys were happy to park it on the couch!

Our last dinner was at Mario Batli's Carnevino.  They do these humongous age steaks that you share and they bring them out and carve them in front of you.  Then they leave you with these huge bones that still have all this delicious meat on them.  The waiter gave a whole spill on how it is encouraged to pick up the bone and get after it.  Which I was glad he did because Kenny would of wanted to that in the privacy of his own home but would of refrained at a really nice restaurant.  But since they had permission the boys went for it! They said it was delicious! I enjoyed the steak a lot too!

It was a fantastic trip.  Kenny and I enjoyed some couple time but missed Elle immensely.  I am glad to be home with her again bronchitis and all!
