MGM, M'n'M and Coke!

Crystal and Darren, my sister and brother in law, came down to Vegas for a little R'n'R, and they invited us to spend a couple of days with them. We spent one whole day just playing. We went out to dinner at a little East Indian Restaurant Buffet, the food was divine, as was the company. After stuffing ourselves to the brim we drove over to the MGM to check out the Lions.
Bill let Liam and Ezra reach up and touch the glass underneath the lion.
Obi, of course, wouldn't even know what to do in that situation, but he was fascinated to see the big cat above him.
After the MGM we headed over to the Coke store...
And then to the M'n'M store...
...where Darren decided to let the boys pick something out that he would pay for. Of course Ezra went for the candy and loaded about 48 pounds of it into his little plastic bag. Liam chose a little m'n'm key chain for $28 dollars. Luckily the m'n'm's were only $9 per pound!!!!
The M'n'M store has 4 floors (or 5 or something ridiculous) and on one of the floors they have a theater where they show their own little M'n'M movie. We decided to see it, and in order to get to it you go through a "ride line" a lot like Disneyland. They had the story of how they make the peanut M and then there was this tunnel...
the whole outside of the tunnel, with the dots on it rotates around this bridge that you walk over. The bridge is not moving, but the spinning of the tunnel some how confuses your brain and makes you think it is. I almost fell several times, and if you look at the lady on the right, she did fall, I had to step over her!!! Okay, that didn't happen, but it was a good story. Anyways, you should check it out, you feel like your going to vomit, and fall over all at the same time!!! On the other side of the bridge we took more pictures, and then watched the movie.
After we were done spending a fortune on chocolate and key chains we headed back over to the MGM, looked at the lions one more time, checked out the Rain Forest Cafe on our way to the bathroom, and headed home. At the rain forest cafe there is this snake, Bill pretended to touch it, and then asked Liam if he wanted to.
Liam of course said he wanted to, but the minute he got near it he had a panic attack, and almost died! Okay, slight exaggeration, but he was scared!
All in all, it was good to see my sister and her awesome husband, and we had a good time. Thanks Auntie Crystal and Uncle Darren!!!
