We got dressed for dinner that evening and headed south on Las Vegas Blvd. to another one of our favorite places in Vegas - the Yard House located in the Town Square Mall complex. We had to call it a night rather early due to Ashlee and Mel's early wake-up the next day for an all-day tour to the Grand Canyon.
Sunday we slept in and then went over to the fabulous Bellagio for their always-delicious Sunday Brunch with Champagne - yep, another Vegas favorite for us. We spent a few hours afterwards walking off our meals around the Bellagio Conservatory (photo above) and the amazing chocolate fountain (photo left) - a Guinness world record largest, at Jean Phillipe Pastry Shop. We then took a tram over to the new Aria/Crystals City Center complex to check it out as well.
Later in the afternoon - after a few wrong turns- we headed into North Las Vegas to find the Tenaya Creek Brewery to sample a few of their wares which were excellent. We got caught in a rare Vegas shower on the way back and probably should have followed the end of the rainbow we saw because there are plenty of pots of gold in this town, but it's hard to figure just where they are. After a little more gambling in the evening - but no pots of gold to report - we took Ashlee and Mel to the airport for a late-night red-eye flight that would get them to Nashville early the next morning so Ashlee could get back to work, and Mel could start experiencing the fabulous southern U.S. humidity!
