We just are soooooo NOT gamblers! I must confess..that we only slapped down $5 in a slot machine..and when that ran out..(ohhh..a mere 2 minutes)... we giggled..and then LEFT lol :)
My new FAVORITE Drink..."Sputnik One"...ohhh my goshhh..this stuff was SOOOO Goooood!!!! Very easy to drink a few of these ;)
We all met up at the "Red Square" bar in Mandalay Bay .. a very yummy Vodka bar..and got to say Hi and hug Jillian (Greg and Christy's daughter)..and her friends. Many laughs flowed..as did the drinks and cavier..and so it began..an adventure filled with new friends and shared stories.
Lots of great statues such as these.. sooooo much to see and snap pics of... just not enough days to see it all!

We spent a couple of hours admiring the sites and slowed down a bit at the Red Rock Canyon:
We were hoping to catch a glimpse of the wild horses and burrows that live here.. but I think best chance for that is early morning and before dark..

Greg and Dan.. preparing the glasses for the "Absinthe" party!
