Viva Las Vegas

After a long drive we finally made it to Vegas.
ZZ knew exactly how to rock her Vegas look. 
Most of the time we spent just walking the strip, enjoying all of the sites, and people watching.
There is a lot of water in Vegas for being in the middle of the desert, and ZZ wanted to touch all of it.
We also spent a lot of the time of our trip trying to get her to do what we wanted her to.
She didn't want to sit in her stroller, or walk, or sit, or stay, or go, or anything that we wanted her to do.  Sergio and I both commented on our way home that we should have taken a bunch of pictures about how horrible she acted so we remembered what the trip was really like...but I didn't get a  single one. It did make it so we didn't get to do everything that we wanted to do...but we were able to do a lot of fun things. 
Clown act and silk act at Circus Circus: 

ZZ's favorite part was the aquarium at Mandalay Bay. 
She loved every second of seeing all of the fish.
It was really hard to get her to leave.
Especially the part where there were stingrays that you could touch.  
I have some really long videos, but not any pictures to show.
She loved it and threw a ginormous tantrum when it was time to move on through the aquarium.
Overall it was quite the hit. 
Our trip was pretty fast.  
I am sure that we could have spent a lot more time looking and enjoying everything. 

We also go to to stop at Pawn Stars on the way...

I would say that it is pretty much like any other pawn shop, but with a longer line.
And a lot of merchandise for the show
But at least we can say that we have been there now.

Before we headed home we stopped Fashion Show Mall to check out a few of the outlets.
I bought pretty much all of ZZ's summer wardrobe but the best part was the carousel. 
She loved riding on the 'nay', even though she had such a tight grip on my hand that it turned purple.
Before we headed home we had found an Argentine restaurant close to the strip called 
Rincon de Buenos Aires,
It was heavenly.
We felt like we were walking right into Argentina and they sold a bunch of really awesome goods, spices, cookies, every type of mate, soda, etc, etc, etc...
We loved every second that we were there and it was really hard to leave.
The food was beyond wonderful.
We shared a parrilla, it was every bit as good as the real thing.
I got the yummy cuts of meat that I love (sirloin, vacio, strip steak)
and Sergio got all of his yucky stuff...(Blood sausage, entrañas, ect.)
I think we might have to make another trip to Argentina...I mean Vegas...just for another round of this heavenly food. 
We had a wonderful trip.
It wasn't nearly long enough, but it was nice to have a little bit of time together
while it lasted.
