We celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary this week-end. In case you are wondering, we got married when I was 14 years old (no, not really!).
Our anniversaries are usually very low key. This year hubby went all out. He arranged for a babysitter and planned this whole great day for us. It was (and he is) wonderful!!
We started out at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville restaurant for lunch. The decor was really fun. You could eat sitting at one of these boats. I had my first Cuban sandwich. I've been wanting to try one and it sure was yummy!
After lunch we saw this little place on the strip selling deep fried Twinkies. I told Tom I've been dying to try one. Boy was it gooood!! Way better than I expected. Now I want to go back and try the deep fried Oreo's!
Next stop was the Venetian hotel. It was beautiful!
Look at this painting on the ceiling. Amazing!
I thought this was adorable.
Ooooh, what do we have here? Romantic gondola rides?
Yeah, we did that!
Tom scored major romance points for this idea!
The gondoliers sing romantic songs while you glide along in the water.
"when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie...that's amore!"
(they actually sang much prettier songs than that)
It was a rare cold day in Las Vegas so we could only ride inside. But it was easy to imagine you were outdoors with the pretty sky ceiling.
Next stop was the Bellagio's conservatory. Just because my hubby knows I love it there. I'll show you more pictures of this later in the week.
Oh ya, we saw this guy. Only in Vegas!!
(Remember I mentioned it was cold outside!)
Then a limo took us home! So cool!
When we got home Grant was dying to take a ride.
So the whole family and our babysitter took a 5 minute ride. Both of the boys just loved it.
What a wonderful day, all thanks to my sweet hubby! I think I'd marry him all over again. :)
