The first weekend of December, Tyler and I went to Vegas. It was a pretty last-minute trip and considering that I had 90 papers to grade that weekend, it may not have been the wisest of decisions.

We even got to see the MGM lions being active for once. They came up so close!
We spent most of our time just walking around the casinos and checking out all of the great Christmas decorations. Bellagio is always my favorite.
