Dustin took this picture from the plane. I loved that the mountains are in the background everywhere, something we miss here in Texas.
By far the highlight of the trip was playing slots. It was a lot of fun. This was our biggest win, triple 7s across and we won 1620...too bad it was nickels. It was still over $81 on $.15, not too bad. Overall, we netted $215 over what we spent on slots. We were to cheap to do quarter or dollar slots, because it is amazing how fast you can pull that lever. lol We went to the top of the Stratosphere, and it was pretty neat to look over all of Vegas at night with all the pretty lights. We saw 2 different shows., and really enjoyed them. We wouldn't mind going back in the future, there was lots of things we didn't get a chance to see.
When we got to the airport to come home, we were suppose to leave Vegas at 7:25 pm (9:25 central) and land in Houston at 12:30 am central time. My sweet sis was suppose to pick us up at the airport and we were going to crash at her house (she lives about 20 min from the airport). The hotel told us to leave 2 hours before the flight to get there and get through security. Well we must have timed it perfectly because we were at the airport and through security within 30 minutes of leaving the hotel. So we were already going to be waiting over 1 1/2 hours for our flight. Evidently, there was a snow storm in Chicago and it was causing havic at all of the airports. Our flight was delayed for almost 2 hours, and I was just so happy we had planned to come home on the 23rd and not the 24th. We finally landed in Houston and got to my sister's around 3:30 in the morning. We were exhausted, but so thankful for my sis that woke up to come pick us up in the middle of the night.
