Hard to believe this trip is almost over.  Time certainly flies when you are having fun! To start the day off on a light note, we decided to create a challenge.  This isn’t new for us, but the rules do change every year as we think up new ideas.

This year, we started at the Cosmopolitan and worked our way up to Excaliber.  We each had $20 to gamble at every casino and either spent it until we won or lost as much as we were comfortable with losing.  Then we met back up and compared notes.  The winner for that round (casino) got 1 point, second place 2 points, and so on.  At the end of the walk, we compared scores for the winner.  The winner got bragging rights the rest of the day.

These challenges are a fun way to do something a little different in the casinos – and helps your money go further!  It’s fun too  – we are all competitive and like to win.  Do you ever create challenges like this when traveling?  What do you do?

Late afternoon, my friend and I went to see Menopause the Musical.  It was hilarious and the theater at Harrah’s was a great place to see it – small and so any seat was great.  The boys spent their time watching baseball in the sports book.  For some reason, they weren’t interested in seeing this show …

We ended the day with a bit more gambling and wandering the strip.  Then, at about 10:00 it started raining!  I’m not sure I’ve ever been to Vegas in the summer when it rained – it was a little bit crazy and a fun way to end the trip.

If you’ve been to Vegas, what is your favorite memory?  If you haven’t been, what would you like to do there?
