What a great last day here in Las Vegas. I woke up this morning feeling extremely rejuvenated from the allergy episode and lack of sleep. Pat and I had breakfast in our room and then we strolled down to the pool. Today was by far the best pool day yet.....not a cloud in the sky.

We just chilled out and soaked up the sun for a couple of hours then we had lunch at one of the restaurants exclusive to the Tower Suites guests....Tableau! You can eat inside or poolside....they have patio tables with umbrellas that shoot a cool mist on you while enjoying your meal. We chose to stay out and take advantage of the beautiful day....we had some wonderful salads and then returned to our loungers poolside for the afternoon.

After a day at the pool, we had scheduled 80 minute massages in the spa......they were SPA-Tacular....I was so relaxed that I fell asleep.

As I wrote last night, we were going to try to go back to Delmonico's to see if we could catch a glimpse of you know who, but being that is was our last night, we wanted to just stay in our hotel and try something new! Both Pat and I are fans of sushi, so we tried out the Japanese restaurant in our hotel.....Okada. I did not even know this restaurant existed, it is really tucked away in a corner of the hotel, but is was great. Pictured above was one of our appetizer's.......A Lobster Roll......it was excellent.

After dinner I finished a little shopping in the hotel while Pat took his chances on the casino floor.

We leave tomorrow at lunch time, so we are planning to get up and have a nice breakfast, then head to the airport for the long flight home!

It was a great trip, but I am anxious to see the kids......we miss them terribly!

Next stop.....Reality!

Sounds great! When we were in Vegas our trip was so short and so jam packed, we were there for a wedding so tried to get everything in in such a short time, maybe we'll go back one day and just relax like you guys! Next stop reality is so true! But it feels great to see the little ones after being away from them, suck up those welcoming hugs and kisses tonight!

Glad you had a great time in LV!
I loved reading about the food... so much from my neck of the woods...Maine Lobster, Maine Scallops, crab meat, fish and more fish.... All sounds yummy!
Safe Traveling home.
