Summer Garden 2015 @ The Bellagio - Las Vegas, NV

Good morning, Sunshines!

As you might already know, we find ourselves in Las Vegas in triple digit hell heat to celebrate Bella's 3rd birthday with the Robinson Vegas clan.

As you might also already know, we are boring people these days. There's nothing we do in Vegas that has to stay here.

Almost all our Vegas fun is pretty much G-rated except for the R-rated language that comes out of mine and Dean's mouths from time to time...

Tourists, man...

And if we're here in 110F weather, you can bet all our Vegas fun is going to be air conditioned, too.

It's no secret I mostly dislike The Strip and most of what it stands for, but there are exceptions to everything, and the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is one such exception... Mostly.

I love plants and flowers and Bellagio's colorful, whimsical, and fantastical seasonal presentations always delight a big part of me.

The other part of me that cringes at the staggering excess and waste required to create it (and Vegas in general) is a thing I'm learning to temper for the sake of balance and fun.

And it really is always fun for me to see what they'll come up with next.

They unimaginatively call this one Summer Garden. 

I think they should come up with something more fun and descriptive. Like Under the Sea on LSD!!! or something like that. 

If you're listening, Bellagio peeps, just look at the world around you. (That's a corny Disney joke, kids. Speaking of other things that make me cringe... ;) )

Chihuly in the lobby.

Always a lovely sight to take in when in Vegas. Hope you enjoyed. :)
