Friday morning dawned and we were ready for another day of adventures – most of which I’ll put here, except for the Neon Museum, which deserves its own post.
The day, in photos.
Blueberry Hill, a local diner chain we hit up for breakfast. Very good.
Brandon looking down at his breakfast. You get a sense of the decor here, too.
Nelson hates “Pawn Stars,” and therefore is cranky we’re driving past the pawn shop.
Dinosaurs in a dinosaur footprint outside the Las Vegas Natural History Museum.
Buffalo. Pretty sure all the animals in this museum were real and taxidermied …
Sting ray. We are the ray whisperers, it’s kind of awesome.
“Carrying” “water” like an Egyptian. It’s heavy.
Brandon made a design. He’s proud.
Picture taken for the Englestad name (also associated with Fighting Sioux hockey).
T-Rexes and a sign about themselves.
Nelson and the T-Rex.
On a shell seat, in a submarine.

From the LVNHM, we checked in to the Bellagio where we’d be staying most of our visit.

Oh yeah, race expo.
After the expo, we took our realtor and local TV/radio personality Susie Wargin around to grab a bite and then help her get to a studio so she could do her radio show from Vegas (she was out running the full marathon). From there, it was off to the Neon Museum (next blog!) and after that, dinner at the Peppermill.
Just like I remembered …
Me at the Peppermill.
Fountain view with the fountains going.
Ceiling between Bally’s and Paris. Never knew this was there …
Hey thanks, Planet Hollywood/Miracle Mile Shops!
We also went to Tao Nightclub that night, but no pictures. Honestly, it was kind of a disappointing experience …
