VIVA Las Vegas!

We got up this morning, packed the car and were ready to go. He said to me that I should take the first driving shift.

SAM_0704OK, said I reluctantly because I’d rather watch the scenery. I love to shift. What, no shifting? It’s an automatic and there’s no shifting. I don’t know how to drive an automatic. Ok-to the back seat with Kaci.

SAM_0705Most of the day was driving in Arizona and I’ll save the Arizona portion of the trip for the return trip. The one thing I wanted to do in Vegas was go to the top of the Statosphere-the tallest structure in the US west of the Mississippi River.

SAM_0706It’s what’s on top that I wanted to do:



What a great time can be had up there. There’s a restaurant (food!!). There’s also a roller coaster at the top (you can see a part of it). You’re already very high and some of the downs make it look like you’re going to “fly” to the bottom. See the center pole. That’s also a ride. They take you up to the top in a seat and then all of a sudden, it’s a free fall. It’s like safe bungee jumping. He’s done these rides but wouldn’t let me go on the rides. He said it was something else in the night with all of Las Vegas lit up way below you. That’s something you may not know about Vegas. The gambling is all over the world. Who needs entertainment and show girls when you have me and Kaci? The other thing you may not know is there are a lot of roller coasters closer to the ground. One even goes in and out of the casino floor. They wouldn’t let me go on those either. The fact that I’m a dog and they don’t allow dogs on these is no excuse, right? Las Vegas’ advertising slogan is “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”. My desire to get on these rides is NOT staying in Vegas-I still want to do them. It’s on my bucket list. Tomorrow we’re going to Utah and end up north of Salt Lake City.

  1. The rides look scary to me! I’ll stay on the ground. Wooowooooo, Ku

  2. I want all four paws planted on the ground when I eat. You would never see me in that restaurant or on the coaster. Oh guys it is called fear!
    Place a small wager for me O.K.

  3. I didn’t realize you had a fun side…BOL.

    Aroo to you,

  4. You girls are too cute in the back seat. You won’t catch me at that top of that Stratosphere, let alone on that rollercoaster. At least you know how to have a good time – if they’d only let you.

  8. A Roller coaster at the top – oh that sounds scary, but food sounds good :o) I agree with you Kyla, shifting is cool – “public-shifting”, what my mom prefers ( all people can hear your wild stirring with the gearstick) not so much. Thanks for inviting me to your tour Kyla&Kaci :o)

  9. I say that he lets you sneak into his coat (er, I recognize that is summer in the desert) so you can go for a ride on the roller coaster!

  10. I’ll pass on this ride. It made me a bit ill just looking at the pictures. I’m just not a thrill seeker one bit.

    Have a woof woof day. My best to your mom. šŸ™‚

  11. Wow Thats high. Not sure I would care for the ride but the food I will take. I will show my peep your car seat I could handle that.

  12. HOLY COWS!! No doggies allowed???! Puddles and Pip snuck in…I thinks you need to up your game gurl! Maybe a hat and a dress…they’ll never realize your a doggie!
    (I know, I know, you don’t do clothes, butts if your gonna ‘double down’ your gonna have to make it to the tables! Now, go get dressed….)
