Our "post tax-season" R&R was great! We love to go to Las Vegas, and this trip didn't disappoint! We saw some great shows, enjoyed relaxing afternoons by the pool reading and people-watching (always fun), and walked our legs off!!
We saw "Jersey Boys", The story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons---such a great show, with music we love..."Big Girls Don't Cry", "Walk Like A Man", "My Boyfriends Back." "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You," just to name a few! We just wanted to stand up and dance!!
We stayed at Vdara, a new hotel at "City Center" (right beside Bellegio). It was a non-smoking, non-gaming hotel---we loved it!!! We are always on "sensory overload" when we are in Vegas, so it was wonderful go go back to our beautiful, quiet, "fresh-smelling" hotel! (This was my view of the hotel from my lounge chair by the pool.)
We have gone to "Phantom of the Opera" before, but we love it, so seeing it again was wonderful! The stage production is amazing and the music is beautiful.
This was our first time to the dueling piano bar at Times Square in NY, NY---what a fun and LIVELY evening!! Every half hour two new piano players would take over, the music was great and the audience participation made for a very fun evening!!
I snapped this picture of Jim relaxing by the pool...luckily I have a camera phone and he doesn't! :0) I think his total relaxation after many months of long hours and hundreds of tax returns was a success!
