neon boneyard

i'm basically a year behind.
you have missed a year of my life.
how does that make you feel?
anyway, we just celebrated our third anniversary.
and we are boring and couldn't think of anything better (or cheaper) to do,
so we went to las vegas.
mind you, i've been to vegas probably 23 times and i'm all vegased out.
i think that was the last time we will be going there,
especially since it just keeps getting dirtier and grosser (is that a word?) and i never want my children to step foot in such a disgusting place.
anyway, we did find one place that was worth the trip.
it was probably my favorite thing we did there.
it's called the neon boneyard and it's basically a pile of old neon signs.
ok so no one else probably thinks this is cool except me.
but they tell you all about the signs and where they came from and all about las vegas and what it was like before it was the vegas it is now.
besides melting in the 120 degree weather, we really liked it.
on to the pictures...

I'm not a fan of Vegas (haven't been there since I moved to Boston) but I love neon signs. I've always wanted one.

Happy Anniversary!

We go to Vegas once or twice a year but I have never been the the neon boneyard haha we'll have to put it on our list. Vegas is a dirty place but you can find some fun things. If you get talked into going again try Serendipity. They have frozen hot chocolate and its made with 16 different kinds of chocolate-that right there is the reason I still go to Vegas haha. I love your pictures by the way!
