This won't be like the Hangover

Well Chris is off to Sin City for the weekend for nothing other than a friend's bachelor party :)
I made sure he took our camera thinking that he could get some great pictures of all the guys together, but who am I kidding, he may not use it at all! 

Anyway, his trip reminds me of the time I went to Vegas the summer after my freshman year of college.  I know what you're thinking, but my entire family went, and no one happened to be 21 yet besides my older brother.  Plus Nevada was in the middle of a heat wave and I remember it being somewhat around 110 degrees outside of dry dry heat. 

So what could we have possibly done in Vegas, you ask?  Well we made sure to hit all the major stops - the Bellagio (they had chocolate fountains! And the Ocean movies were still coming out at the time), MGM to see the lions, Caesar's Palace, the Venetian, etc.  We had a great time just walking around the strip seeing all there was to see.  And there is a lot to see.
Bellagio's chocolate fountain - supposedly the world's tallest and largest volume chocolate fountain.

Lions - you couldn't pay me to get in there and pet them.

And then we left the strip and visited the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead.  :)  Did you know over 100 people died during the construction of the Hoover Dam?

I'm pretty sure Chris' trip will be a little different than mine was, but that's okay.  I'm hoping they all end up having a great time and that he takes at least one picture!

So exciting to be out there with all the guys! Chris is one person you don't have to worry about in Vegas! Hope he takes pictures!

And my wolf pack... it grew by one. So there... there were two of us in the wolf pack... I was alone first in the pack, and then Doug joined in later. And six months ago, when Doug introduced me to you guys, I thought, "Wait a second, could it be?" And now I know for sure, I just added two more guys to my wolf pack.
