So after having the Freemont Street experience the first night, we slept in a little bit and then it was time for the big event. Nope, not the wedding....the trip to the M&M Store with Little Cowboy. For his birthday, I promised him that I'd take him there, just me and him, no moms and no grandmas. They might not have let us buy enough candy. So we called a cab and headed out to buy a bag of candy bigger than our head.

that he met a real-life M&M
|It takes a while to gather up 5 pounds of candy.|
And because we needed something to wash down all that sugar, we headed to the Coca-Cola store for cokes in a glass bottle.
From there, we headed to meet up with the rest of the family at Margaritaville. This what when we got directions from Midget Elvis and Little Cowboy made the comments about women's attire. Priceless.

After this, there was a lot of discussion about what to do that night, and in the end we a bunch of us decided to head to Freemont Street again. We loaded up two vehicles full of crazy people jamming out to country music, probably damaging the eardrums of our poor cab drivers, and headed out for some fun. Can I just tell you that every strange person in the world is lined up next to each other on a Friday night on Freemont Street? Because they are. There are no words, but trust me. Oh, and Little Brother may have done an Ellen Dare Dance. If I can get the video, I'll post it!
While I was busy playing Deal or No Deal with Little Hepburn and Soldier Cousin, Miss Little had arrived in Vegas and was busy jumping off the Stratosphere. I told you my family is full of fun, no?? We called it a night around 2 in the morning...but at least we were not in the worst shape of people on Freemont Street! Derek took a picture with this dude who was passed out on the stree to prove it.
Still to come we have the Kentucky Derby, the wedding, and me hitting the Strip with three teenagers....stay tuned, folks!
