Las Vegas

Oh boy I feel like I'm in sin city or something. It is definitely something different that's for sure. Our hotel is beautiful, our room is huge....the size of your downstairs Ta'ala's. Our view is pretty lame suring the day but at night it's really pretty all lit up with lights etc.
We've eaten at the restaurants at the hotel a few times. Wiremu would have liked it. The had lots of veges and roast. I have been dying for some veges and finally got a HUGE plate full. They do a thing where you fill up your plate with veges and different asian sauces and they cook it all up with either beef or chicken.
Aarahi's cousins have been taking good care of us. His cousin Wendall picked us up from the airport and we went back to his cousin Talbot's for the afternoon to meet his Aunty and Uncle (lovely cute old couple who still call each other pet names).
Today cousin Talbot was our personal chauffer/photographer/tour guide as we ventured out to the famous Las Vegas strip. Oh what a site that was! I dont really know how to describe it. Just crazy crazy crazy. HUGE buildings, billboards with half naked girls on them, the works. There were some pretty cool sights to see though. The water show at the Bellagio was pretty amazing as well as the incredible atrium inside the hotel. We also enjoyed Caesar's Palace. There is so much to take in and there are people EVERYWHERE.
We were lucky enough to be able to go and visit the Las Vegas temple. It was so PRETTY. It is an amazing building, surrounded by huge mountains. It was such a contrast to the strip. We are really glad we had the opportunity to visit.
Later that night we were able to meet cousin Wendall's family. He has a lovely wife and four gorgeous kids. Auron loved playing with the kids and they made him some cool paper snowflakes out of paper which we will take home and hang up in his room.
Wendall took us on a little tour of the strip and downtown Las Vegas on the way back to the hotel. The strip seemed even more crazy at night. There was no way I wanted to get out of the car! It's been such a fun time.
