    My Trip Report

    For those of you who suffered through our NYE trip report, I hope you enjoy this one. It will include many of the same places but we will try to add a few new ones along the way. This was an unplanned trip but after my two sons booked flights to be in Vegas for my birthday I thought......well maybe I should go too.

    On top of that, it will be 5 years to the day since my father passed. He went to Vegas over 40 years and always stayed downtown (many times a year) so we will be starting the first day with a downtown casino crawl of his fav places followed by a strip version of some of his and some of ours.

    Flight out at 8AM in the morning, boarding passes printed, lucky charms packed, bags packed and ready to go. Just need to check if Hangover III is still on.

    Next couple of post will be making sure tapatalk works from my new phone so be patient.

    I need to get to that place. I have a rental car for my upcoming trip - maybe I can put it to good use and get me some good Thai!

    Good luck SandsFan! Keep those updates coming! and Happy Birthday!

    Lotus of Siam was awesome as usual. The rest of our group arrived and I forgot to take photos of the Last couple dishes. Here is a couple.
