In trying to think of a memory starting with the letter L I couldn't help but remember the fun and adventures we had when The Fab 5 went to Las Vegas. For those of you who are new to my blog, The Fab Five are my 4 best friends, Brenda, Kelly, Libby, Linda and myself. It was the summer of 2008 and and I had never been to Las Vegas before. Even though I am not a big gambler, it is a fascinating place. I was awestruck. To say we had a good time would be an understatement. We had so much fun that I won't even try to tell all about it in one post. I will save stories for later. For now I am only going to tell about one of our lunches.
We had spent the morning walking around town sightseeing and were in the MGM Grand when we decided to eat lunch at the Rainforest Cafe. The atmosphere was amazing. You really felt like you were in the forest with the trees and animals. We enjoyed a delicious lunch as we laughed and talked about this and that. Somewhere in the conversation I just happened to mention that it was Kenneth and my anniversary that day. Next thing I know, here comes the waitress with a gigantic dessert.
My friends had decided since Kenneth and I were apart for our anniversary that at least I needed to celebrate. Now when I say gigantic, I mean HUGE. This thing was called The Volcano, complete with lava. Let's just say we all shared it and we still didn't eat it all. We laughed so hard we couldn't speak.
Just imagine piles and piles of rich, creamy vanilla ice cream, surrounded by walls of fudgy, chewy brownies, topped with mounds of luscious whipped cream, sprinkled with nuts and drenched in chocolate and caramel syrup! It was heaven in a bowl!
So if you are ever in Vegas, don't leave without trying to conquer The Volcano. I bet you can't eat it all!
Until next time...that's my view.
