Stratoshphere

The Stratosphere was one of the first places that we went when we arrived in Vegas. It was so gorgeous way up there. I was not brave enough to do any of the rides but Laurie and her daughter Crystal and son-in-law Jim went on one....one word for them-CRAZY! Crystal and Jim live in Arizona and they drove the several hours and joined us on vacation. They were lots of fun, I am so glad they were able to come. Wayne, Laurie, Me and Chad on top of the Stratosphere.

How fun!!! I have thought about going to Vegas but never knew if I would enjoy myself. I am more of a lie on the beach, drinking margaritas kind of girl!

Tracy said...

Yes, I am one of those CRAZY people that did the ride at the top of the Stratosphere!! It was absolutely the scariest thing I have ever done.

And not the roller coaster around...the one that shoots you to the moon and back!! :(

I've never been to LV, but I want to go sometime!

Isn't it nice to be home?

Robb, after being coaxed by his sisters, did the ride that shoots you to the moon. He said NEVER AGAIN!

You made a good choice. :)

Can't wait to see more pics!

What a good looking couple. I am glad you had a great time on vacation. What a site to see a city up high at the end of a day.

Love and Hugs,

Hi Chris! I loved the view from way up there, but felt a little nauseaus just looking at your photo. I can't handle very high places!

Kris said...

Great pics, glad you all had a great time! I do not think I would have done the ride either!

Rising Rainbow said...

What an amazing view! I wouldn't have gone on rides either. The only ride for me is a horse.....well, I guess I ride in my truck as well, but I prefer the horse. Those scary things are not even in my vocabulary.

My thoughts on the ride was OH S*** and then I thought Chris would have never made it Oh yah, she wouldn't have had a choice because she was strapped in tight. But then again because she was strapped in she couldn't have gotten on either. Just teasing you Chris. You did GREAT on all the "Firsts" you had. :) We had a great time and hope we can do it all again next year.

Good pictures. I'll have to go research some of the rides on the Stratosphere.

Lori said...

We rode the Stratosphere tower to the top too. Wasn't that an awesome view.

Lori said...

But I didn't ride one of those rides. No way. No how. UN UH! Not me. That would've scared the crap out of me.
