Vegas - The Bellagio

Jon and I had our first mini vacation without Avalyn. We decided to go to Vegas to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. It was a little early, but our anniversary is right before Thanksgiving and things get a little busy around the holidays. Jon has been to Vegas numerous times but this was my first visit.

We stayed at the Bellagio. It was really nice and in a great location as well.

Spacious and comfortable room
The hotel had really nice decorations.  Lots of art, floral arrangements, and gardens.

Yummy food as well.  They had a delicious chocolate shop with lots of treats, gelato, and crepes. 

I mean seriously, how can you pick?

A big casino too.  Jon spent most of his time here.  I'm not much of a gambler. 
Jons favorite place in the world.  The Bellagio Poker Room!

I gambled an entire $2 during the whole trip
Lots of shopping!  However, I didn't even feel worthy to step foot in most of the shops.  Very high end jewelry, handbags, clothing, and shoes.

Nice spa!  After 2 days of walking the strip all day in the heat I decided to splurge.  I had a massage and it was wonderful!

Of course I spent some time at the pool as well.  The Bellagio had 5 pools and 2 hot tubs.  Since everything was spaced out you didn't feel like it was too crowded or noisy.

Overall we had a nice time and I really enjoyed this hotel!  More pictures to come.


  1. Looks like a super fun time - so glad you guys got to get away by yourselves for a bit!:) Happy 5 Year Anniversary!!

  2. That chocolate shop is amazing!! Yum! Im like you, i would only gamble a few bucks and spend the rest of the time at the spa or pool. Did jon win big?? Glad you two were able to get away.

  3. That sounds heavenly! We have had so many little trips this summer but all with kids... not exactly relaxing. :) Glad you were able to have a little get-away.

  4. Beautiful photos. I'm so glad you had a great trip!
