Today we are linking up with Melinda at West Metro Mommy for Super Saturday Snapshots.
When I was planning the flights for our Australia trip last year I thought it would be nice to break the trip back to America up so we wouldn't spend a day and a half just in airplanes and airports. I considered spending a night near the airport at San Francisco but the hotel prices were pretty expensive. We had been to San Francisco several times before so I then looked into other cities that we hadn't been to before to see if it would be an economical way to see a new city. After looking at a few cities I looked at Las Vegas and saw that the hotels rates were less than half than in San Francisco plus the flights would only cost $10 a person more than flying straight home from San Fransisco. We decided that this would be a fun way to break up the trip home. We spent two nights in Vegas and spent the time wandering through the different casinos and playing a few games. One of the things I was excited to see was the lights at night and I was not disappointed. Here are a few of my favourite photos.
The fading sunlight puts a wonderful ranges of colours onto the buildings of the New York, New York Casino.
I loved the bright colours of the Excalibur Casino at night.
The Luxor really lights up at night, both with the light that shines out of the top of the pyramid and the other structures out front.

Since we only had a day to spend in Vegas we didn't make it to the other end of the strip at night but would like to go back and see it lit up. Have you ever seen Vegas at night and if so what is your favourite at night?
