Here's a little Ciccotelli family history.
I have two brothers - Christopher and Jason. My older brother Chris is married to Maryellen and they live about an hour outside the City (New York). My little brother Jason is married to Christy and they live in Las Vegas. They have two kids - Ty and MJ.
Maryellen found cheap flights to Vegas, so we all up and left for a spur-of-the-moment brothers reunion. We took Virgin America through Dallas Love Field on Wednesday. It was rainy and cold in New York, but it's always sunny above the clouds.
Virgin is fun. Love their mood lighting.
We started our descent into Dallas around sunset.
Apparently I can't hold my camera still on an airplane.
So I switched cameras to the Canon, which pretty much sees in the dark, and you see a little clearer picture.
We were on the wrong side of the plane to see the Strip as we landed, so I don't have any cool Vegas pics from the plane.

We worked all day on Thursday and then went out to Lockdown - an escape room game. I'm really good at these and I was 100% confident we'd escape. But we failed. :( Don't let the smile fool you, I was heartbroken and destroyed inside.
We also cruised through the Strip to show it off to Chris and Maryellen, who've never been here before.
----- [Friday] -----
Chris and Maryellen went out to Hoover Dam and nearly got stuck in an elevator while we worked all day on Friday. Then they went shopping while Isa and I headed to the Linq, the Strip's newest attraction.
The High Roller Ferris Wheel there is the tallest Ferris Wheel in the world (as of right now). It's big.
This area is next to Flamingo, which is very photogenic.
We also stopped by Del Sol in the Grand Bazaar shops. But it was closed. :(
When we got home, nobody was there (Jason and Christy were at a birthday party with the kids). So we went back out for popcorn and ice cream.
Nielsen's Frozen Custard is next level ridiculously good. And Popped, with its delicious gourmet popcorn, is just two doors down. Isa got the Pink'adelic.
That's good for one blog post.
