This morning Megs & I were up at 5am for a helicopter trip to the Grand Canyon...we must have enjoyed the early start because we are planning on another one tomorrow as the sunrises in Vegas are amazing!

The Grand Canyon was spectacular...a little bumpy in the helicopter due to winds off Lake Mead though. We landed at the bottom of the west rim (I think) & flew over into Colorado. We had views of Lake Mead, the Colorado River, Hoover Dam & Boulder City along the way.

In the afternoon we walked the strip venturing into the Ballagio for Ghostbuster's Pokies. We also found M&Ms' World & spent way too long in there trying to decide whether we wanted personalised M&Ms!

Bailes, Greenie, Blake & Brooke headed out on the hop on hop bus for the day & yes you guessed it ended up at another outlet shopping centre & bought more shoes!

We all spent the evening touring the strip in a limo! We ventured out to the old Vegas (Fremont St) where Bailes & Megs did this skyline flying fox thing. We saw the pawn shop & wedding chapel from the hangover along the way. There are so many people getting married in Vegas today for 12/12/12...we even witnessed an Elvis ceremony at the Vegas sign! Stops along the way included the volcano show at the Mirage & the water show at the Ballagio.
