Vegas Trip with My Mom & A Case of Mistaken Identity

One day I told my mom I would like to do a weekend getaway with her, just go for a road trip and spend some time alone with her. She said" I would love that how about we fly to Las Vegas". So she and her husband paid for my hotel and plane fare for my 38th birthday gift. Wow the power of suggestion! So off we went we stayed Saturday through Tuesday. We saw the highlights of Vegas, caught a show, laid by the pool, shopped til we dropped and just a tad of gambling ( I think I spent $5.oo but I won $18.00 on a Wizard of Oz penny game).
The funniest thing that happened was in the Las Vegas Airport. My mom and I were sitting down eating breakfast and these three girls kept looking at me and saying "that is really her, Oh my Gosh I am freaking out". Two of them walked past me and met up with the third one in the hall and they were looking at their camera saying "We got a picture of her"! They were so excited! I am assuming they thought I was Kate from Jon and Kate Plus 8. I have had several people say "You know you look like Kate from that T.V. show". Usually I am standing up when people have said this and they can tell I am not her. But I think because I never stood up or maybe they had too much to drink (It's Vegas) they really thought they saw Kate! So good I am glad I could make their day!
We had a great time and here are some of the pictures I took of our wonderful Mother Daughter trip!

Not worth the wait especially when a girl behind you is so drunk
she passes out and drops her red drink and it splashes all over your new shoes!!!

What a fun trip. I'm so glad you could do this with your Mom. I love all the pictures and hopefully someday, I'll get to see them all scrapped.

What an awesome story about the mistaken identity. I love that. And the picture with the guy being a statute is amazing. It looks like it really is a statute.

I'm glad you're home safe.
