Part II Vegas: FUlying High!

**July 22 **

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a helicopter...

No, it's SuperFit!

"Don't jump SuperFit...
You don't actually have Super Powers!!!"

After an interesting start to our morning...

We headed down to the Wynn Buffet to eat our breakFUst!

We most certainly will!

The entrance to the dining area could have been nicer ;)

It was very welcoming to say the least!

As soon as we were taken to our table...

We didn't even bother sitting down beFUre heading towards the FU'd!

Mini Bagels Selection.

WaFUles

FUrench Toast

Warm Strawberry and Apple Sauce and Warm Maple Syrup

Mini FUruit Cups

Dim Sum

My FUrst plate (yes, my FUrst) looked a little something like this...

Granola, Yogurt, a mini WaFUle and a piece of FUrench Toast.

Nom Nom Nom!

Once I licked my plate clean...

I went back to the Buffet for some much needed Protein...

Veggie Omelette and Smoked Salmon...
Oh and a Croissant (which I shared with SuperFit) and
a mini Pancake I didn't ended up eating.

Happy Baby Fu :)

On our way out...

We checked out the desserts! (And yes, they had these out at breakFUst!)




Mini CuPcAkEs (my FUvorite!) and Cookies

SuperFit and I had an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie!

We could have done without but we were on vacation!

After a very FUlfilling meal...

We toured around our hotel.

Garth Brooks was playing that weekend FU just $254 a ticket!
Just ;)

I'm not sure.

 A restaurant we would have like to try out but was closed
FU renovations.

Soon enough...

We ended up outside, where we continued touring the Vegas Strip!


Except on this day...

We ventured over to the 'other side'!

Making our way down to street level.

The 'other side' included older, less modernized hotels as well as the construction of newer resorts!



This is how we measures Body Fat lol ;)

I should mention my sister Kiki recently came back from Vegas and...

Told us we absolutely had to check out Circus Circus (one of the oldest Casino and Hotels on the Vegas Strip!)!


You can stay here for only $27 USD a night.

I have to say it wasn't as welcoming as any of the other hotels we had visited and...

UnFUrtunately...

It didn't smell so good!

At least there were games and things...


No, I didn't get my FUrtune read.
Next time ;)

Needless to say...

We left pretty quickly as there wasn't much to see!

Our next destination would be the Stratosphere...

It's that tall tall building at the far end of this pic!
Let's just say it made FU a long walk lol

On our way there...

We walked by the World's Largest Gift Shop (although I'm not going to validate the thruthFUlness of that statement! lol)


60 minutes into our walk in the hot hot desert heat...

It felt like we were in the Sahara Desert!

We FUnally reached the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino!
We were happy FU the air conditioning!

As this hotel ofFUred a number of things to do...

We took advantage of their 'Top of the World' Tour!



One quick elevator ride up...

We were in fact at the 'Top of the World'!

I didn't lean on the glass.

We weren't high at all ;)

Nope. Not at all.

There were many rides people paid to do (I'm not kidding) at the top of this hotel...

Such as...

The Sky Jump!

People jump off from the blue ledge!

Do you see the guy?!

And away he goes!

And the Big Shot...

You get to breathe in Vegas FU a split second at 1081 Feet High
beFUre dropping down faster than you went up!

Let's just say...

We took a big risk simply by going outside! (We're crazy, I know!)

Meet the Risk Takers!!!

While we were out...

SuperFit had to show off his goods with his signature pose!

A 6 pack that never fades! Ever!
(I realize the lighting is totally off...but they are there and
they ain't going nowhere!) 

He also requested a FUto without my glasses (what's wrong with my glasses?! lol)!

Muaahhh ;)

With all this love in the air....


We decided to get married...


We called our FUmily and FUrends to share the news!


Although...

We couldn't decide in which Chapel to get married!



So we changed our minds and went FU lunch instead!

Yes, you are reading it right!

After walking FU another 75 minutes in the boiling hot heat...

We ended up at Paris Paris' Sugar Factory (I had researched this place months ago. It was deFUnitely on my list of restaurants to try out!)


This was very FUn FU me!

Of course...

Their menu was FUeled  sweet treats!

PB, Jelly and Milk Chocolate Pizza!
I couldn't believe the popularity of sweet pizzas!

It was really hard not to get excited over it!

Peanut Butter Fondue!
I mean common!

SuperFit was just as excited as I was!

He was having troubles containing all of his excitement!

Once we placed our FU'd orders...

It wasn't long beFUre we got our meals!


The FUries got the best of him ;)

We both got the Rosemary Chicken Club!


I couldn't remember the last time I had FUries!

I didn't FUnish my plate (but I was pretty close to it!)!

Either way, it was delish!

Right next to the restaurant was...

The *CaNdY* portion of the Sugar Factory!

I was in a happy place :)
Just the sight of *CaNdY* makes me smile!

They had CuPcAkEs too!!!

Although we'd save eating a CuPcAkE FU later....

To my surprise,

I only ended up buying...
A mug, a tank top and a CuPcAkE Key Chain!
(I had lots of sweets back at the hotel)

I was happy with my purchase nonetheless!

BeFUre long...

It was time to head back to our hotel and get ready FU our helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon!

Although we couldn't resist posing with Elvis on our way there...


SuperFit has never looked so good!

As soon as we got to our rooms...

We FUreshened up and wasted a FU minutes we had to spare beFUre the bus picked us up!

I managed to find something to get excited over!
Inside were mini CuPcAkE Cookies...
I know this because my Mom bought me a smaller version of this one :)

We also attempted to play the slot machines with the FUree $10 credit the Wynn gave us!

I chose this one.

Sadly FU us...

We couldn't FU the life of us figure out how to use our credit!

So we gave up and decided to try again later.

As soon as we arrived to our bus stop (where the valet parking of the hotel is located)...

We took a seat on a bench (which is where we were told to sit) and...

Patiently waited FU our ride to arrive!


As the bus was running behind schedule (I knew this because I called)...

We ate some M&M's to pass the time!

Looking like he got caught doing something bad lol

This was the FUrst batch we bought at M&M World :)
Yes, the FUrst batch lol

When we FUnally got picked up...

We ended up taking the back roads to the airport!

This is just part of the parking FU staff only at our hotel!!!
We couldn't get over it!

On our way there...

We had a protein bar as "the wheels on the bus went round and round"...

Cinnamon FUlavored.

There was a whole lotta desert on our 45 minute drive to the airport....


As soon as we arrived...

We checked in and watched a 15 minute Safety Video...

Check, Check and Check.

BeFUre taking off in our designated Chopper!


Until then...

We had to wait in the waiting area...

Good view.

When our names got called out...

We proceeded outside and walked over to our helicopter!

We were joined by 5 other passengers.

And, we were soon introduced to our new FUrend!

# 44.

Our Pilot gave us all the ins and outs on how to properly set ourselves up once seated...

We had no difFUculty FUllowing his instructions!

Soon enough...

It was time to get going!

And without having to say much...

We were so FUreakin' excited!




In no time...

"Up, up and away" we went!



We were undoubtedly FUlying high!


The view from every angle was breathtaking!


FUlying over Hoover Dam.


SuperFit enjoying his Window Seat view :)







We were having a FU'in great time!

I even managed to sneak in a FU Jujubes!


And a FU kisses...


1 1/2 hours later...

It was time to head back!




When we got back to base...


We snapped a FU shots with our helicopter FU memories sake!

I think he liked his birthday gift :)

Trust me when I say... 

If you are ever in Vegas, this tour is a deFUnite MUST!

www.papillon.com
Golden Eye Sunset Tour.

Our evening didn't end here though....

We ended up getting dropped off, not at our hotel, but somewhere in the middle of the Vegas Strip!


SuperFit soaking it allllll in :)

It was decided we'd try out another buffet that came highly recommended!

Located in the Cosmopolitan Hotel.

Seeing we were just coming off a high (cheesy I know)...

It didn't phase us that another 2 hours would be added to our walking FU the day!

It made FU a grand total of 10 hours (more or less)! (Our feet were swollen as were our FUngers!)

Either way...

It was worth it!

Let's just say the walk did us some good :)

Stay Tuned FU the end of day 3 and more on our Vegas Trip on *CaNdY FiT*
