My Summer Trip: Day 5 & 6

These are my last two days of my summer trip to California and Las Vegas!

Day 5 (July 25th):

After a long day at California Adventure, it was time to start heading back. We packed, ate lunch, and hit the road once again. But, by the time we hit the road, it was about noon. Luckily we were going to stop at Las Vegas (again) so, the trip wasn't as long. As usual, I spent the car trip on my iPod, sleeping, and reading Catching Fire.

Hiton Vacation Club, Las Vegas
(I do not own this picture)
Once we got to Las Vegas, we checked into our hotel. This time, we stayed at The Hilton Vacation Club. It was absolutely beautiful! What we liked about it was it was perfect for our family! It doesn't have any casinos, clubs, and normal "Vegas" stuff. That wasn't the only thing that made the day wonderful (compared to all my bad luck before.) Once we got into our room, we LOVED it. Why? Because it was just like a mini suite! There was a kitchen, a dining table, a couch/bed and TV as soon as you enter. Then the "master room" and bathroom feels like you are at home! (I guess that's why it's called a vacation home!) I loved the room though!

After that, we went to the swimming pool since it was scorching hot that day. Sadly, I couldn't go swimming though because of... A certain reason...

Sirens of TI
We ate dinner after and then went to Treasure Island to watch The Sirens of TI that takes place every night outside. It was actually a pretty cool show with the action and music. (Gotta love the Pirates and Sirens.)

Treasure Island
Mirage Volcano
After the show, we went over to Mirage where we saw a volcano come to life! Okay, maybe it wasn't a real one but it was pretty cool with the "lava" exploding and how it seemed pretty realistic. By the time we were done walking on Las Vegas Blvd. it was almost midnight so we headed back to the hotel and got a good night's rest in our wonderful room...

Day 6 (July 26th):

Sad, sad! This was the last day of our trip! I guess you could say that this was a boring day except for lunch! For lunch, we went to an Anime Ramen shop. Yes, food and anime. Something perfect for me! Once we entered, it was just like a Japanese Noodle House but it was decorated with Anime-related decorations! I was practically fangirling. =3

Anime Ramen Shop
That wasn't the only thing since the waitresses were just young girls that are cosplayed (that means they "dress up") like anime characters! Super kawaii! The menus were done like a traditional manga (reading from left to right) and it looked like a manga with all the captions, too! It was absolutely wonderful how they decorated the place not to mention the food, which was yummy!

After a good meal of ramen, it was time for us to hit the road... for the last time. This time we were heading back straight home. It was a 6 hour car ride but after riding so many times, we got used to it and it didn't seem that long.

Well, that was my summer trip! Thanks for reading!
