Today's post is about our last day of vacation. It is Paul & my 8th wedding anniversary (hard to believe he's put up with me that long already), so we did a few things to celebrate. We went down to the strip, did a little shopping, had a nice dinner at The Palm & saw a show (The Lion King - very cool costumes!). Walked around afterwards on the strip, watched the fountains at Bellagio for a while. Vegas is in the middle of a heat wave, and it was still over 100F at 11PM!!
Looks like a postcard!

Been to Vegas a dozen times, but I still couldn't resist the photo op for Flat Brutus in front of the famous sign!
Just before we left, there was an unusual bit of excitement back at the house. We had been hearing helicopters overhead, and saw all kinds of news trucks parked across the street. Turns out that Michael Jackson's doctor (the one who'd been giving him with propofol) lives in the development next door, and his house was being raided!! Got a few pics of the news crews & paparazzi, couldn't resist including that here! Gee, too bad I didn't have Flat Brutus along - maybe he could have made the national news: "Crazy lady with cutout dog demands air time" at eleven ...
Every local news crew was there to film, even CNN was on site.

Time to head for the airport. As a last-minute surprise Paul upgraded us to first class for the flight home, so for once I'm looking forward to the trip (I hate to fly). Never been so excited to get home - can't wait to pick up the boys in the morning!!
