Vegas Vacation (Part 1)

Saturday morning, we woke up at a reasonable hour to get our day started.  We met Ashley and Jason for breakfast at Mon Ami Gabi, a French bistro at our hotel.  We sat outside and got to people watch as we planned out our day.  All of us are foodies, so we ate light, knowing we'd be eating off and on all day long.  Everything tasted great, but the best were Mike's Lemon Skinny Pancake and Jason's Orange Chocolate Chip Muffin.  The lemon pancake was almost crepe like with lemon filling.  The muffin was a delicious chocolate chip muffin with a fantastic orange glaze.  Each of us were happy with our choice, without feeling stuffed.

Our next stop was the Shoppes at Caesar's Palace.  It was huge and a unique combination of high end stores, one of a kind places, and basic mall shops.  However, unlike most malls, this one was gorgeous with beautifully painted ceilings and statues everywhere.  We spent time wandering in various shops and picking out what we'd buy if we made big bucks gambling.  One of the coolest statues was one near the center that came to life and put on a show complete with movement, water, and fire.  As we headed to our next location, the boys stopped at the Ciao Ciao Cafe Bar to get some cucumber vodka drinks that were very refreshing.
