In Vegas, Baby

We made it to Las Vegas today. Ryan has become a bit ill with something. He is running a fever which is easily controlled with a little Motrin. But he has something. We initially thought it might be heat stroke from the water park, but now it looks like a virus. We will see how it goes.
Vegas is always fun. I love the place. We stayed in CircusCircus. Eva took the younger two to see the circus while I took Mia to the adventure dome. Now as some of you know, I have a bit of a squeamish stomach and high intensity rides do not work well with me (oddly, I never felt the slight queasiness while piloting a Cessna. Never. Not even while doing hood work in bumpy air). Anyway, I was doing ok until the kids across from me lost his lunch on a ride. I was facing him and could not rip my eyes from his anguish. Anyway, to make a long story short, the ride ended *just* in time and Mia poked fun at me for as long as it took me to recover........
In the evening, Mia watched the little ones while Eva and I went out to the Hard Rock Hotel to have a few drinks, play a few slots and enjoy the scene. The place was packed with lots of people drinking, and playing slots - so I guess we fit in. I noticed one thing, Even though the place was packed, there were not many people at the card tables and the slot machines were pretty empty as well. I have been to Vegas about 6 times and each time I go, I notice less people playing. Sad, but not too sad. I mean it just gambling. Not medical research being cut.....
We took a few pictures of Las Vegas, but not many, and none that really different from what you might see on google, so I am not posting any for this stop.
