My sister Danielle had the excellent opportunity of interning with Costco Corporate this summer, which meant she spent 3 months in Seattle. We didn't get a chance to go to Las Vegas for her birthday, so a mid-summer trip was the perfect time to see each other again. My mom and I flew up mid-afternoon on a Friday, checked into our hotel, gambled a bit, and ate at a lovely Italian restaurant inside the casino. We stayed at the Rio, just across the highway from the strip.
We rented a car, so we drove over to the airport to pick up Danielle after dinner. There was hugging and crying, and once that was out of the way we were off to party!! We dropped off Danielle's things at the hotel, then went to the casino next door to play BINGO!!! (I know, we are addicts) I even won a round!! We finished off the night by gambling until 3am, then finally headed back to the room for some sleep
The next day we got dressed and drove over to the strip, so Danielle could see the famous fountains at Bellagio, the MGM lions, and as many other sites as we could fit in.
All in all, it was a great introduction for Danielle to Vegas, and a great trip for bonding for the three of us!!
