Bridesmaids' Vegas Getaway

A couple of weeks ago, the Olsen girls got together for a fabulous Vegas vacation before Betsy's wedding (it's tomorrow!!).

Here we are at one of our favorite Vegas spots — the Bellagio conservatory. The conservatory is absolutely beautiful and amazing. The display in the gardens is changed five times a year to reflect the current season and it is always fun to see the new display. In January, the conservatory had a Chinese theme, for the Chinese New Year.

My favorite part of Las Vegas is the fountains at the Bellagio (sorry, I don't have any pictures). The fountains are a choreographed water show to light and music and is a must-see. It is absolutely amazing.

Of course the stars also love Las Vegas. Erika and I ran into Nicolas Cage (he was trying to look quite aloof in the picture).

Here the girls posed with Daniel Craig with their best spy looks.

Liz got a close-up with Craig, who remained in character throughout all of the picture taking.

Here we are at the Venetian on our last night.

Las Vegas was tons of fun with incredible shopping (we shopped non-stop), great food, and wonderful company. Congrats on your wedding Betsy!!

I was so excited that the gondolier stuck around long enough to get in the shot! Priceless! Thanks for documenting the whirlwind getaway. It was so much fun!

Lauren, are you referring to the gondolier, or the Earl of Pleasure?

What a fun trip! Maybe when my sisters/SIL finally get done with all their school we can go off and do something fun like this.

Watch out Larry, Krista is looking like she's getting a little close with Nicolas Cage. Look at her just snuggling with him... Personally Krista, I would have chosen Daniel Craig to snuggle with if I had to choose... :)

I've got a question for Larry since he's a google reader user. Is there someway to get updates on private blogs? I haven't been able to get this to work.
