I caught up with Amber and Vic after they all got out of Stomp and we walked to get their car in the new Planet Hollywood Hotel. That still looks much like the Aladdin. Why did the Aladdin have to go? I enjoyed it. Anyways, they drove me to my car in the Paris and then we drove to America's Best Value Inn, just off the strip, close to the Tropicana. It's not the greatest place. No rats, but some flies. I stayed with Moriah, Rachel, and Cheyenne. Amber and I changed our shoes and went to the MGM Grand to do a bit of walking around and some gambling.
The next morning we slept in, then showered and got ready slowly. Almost everyone went to a lunch in Henderson, where Moriah knew this great Thai place from when she used to live there. It was really great Thai food. We spent about 2 hours there, probably because Amber and Vic were lost and it took them about a half an hour to arrive. After that we went back to the ABVI and rested for a little while. We watched a little Mythbusters and some Live Earth. Then, time to get ready to head over to the Bellagio and get Amber ready!
The room at the Bellagio was on the 11th floor, all the way at the end. A huge huge room, it was.
Well, time to head over to the Tropicana! Amber's sisters and I drove over there and walked very fast, carrying a lot of things, in lots of heat, to the chapel in the Tropicana.
After the ceremony a few of us headed back to the Bellagio to relax and eat some cake. We hadn't got a chance to eat too much. The cake was very good. It's upstairs in the fridge right now, actually. Maybe I should head up there and grab some. So we got tired and left the newlyweds to their suite and headed back to the ABVI. We fell asleep at around 3:30 or so.
Moriah and I got to sleep in a bit the next day too. The twins went to church, but we hung back and relaxed in the room until checkout. We enjoyed some Bear Grylls on the Discovery Channel until it was time to go. We caught Angel and Kevin and drove them to the Luxor, then Morian and I drove down Las Vegas Blvd to the Venetian because i wanted to go shopping. It took us so long to get there. Maybe it was about 30-40 minutes? I think that was it. Once we got there it still took a while to cool off. It didn't feel like the air conditioning was working in my car at all. It was on full blast, but I couldn't feel it. The Venetian is one of my favorite hotels. I bought gifts for my mother and aunt. Then we parted there and dropped the tuxes off with Vic and Amber at the gas station. We both filled up. Amber and Vic went to hang out for a while and wait out traffic. Moriah and I left to try and beat traffic. I don't know if it worked for any of us. We drove for a while, then stopped at Moriah's parents' house for some taco salad, mmmm. Then we drove the rest of the way back to LA. Good times, good pictures, lots of heat, but lots of ac.
