Five for Fraturday: Spring Break Edition [PICTURE HEAVY!]

You know that time when you almost finished typing up the post and then realized that your phone hadn't finished uploading the pictures to the post? Well apparently once the pictures are finished being uploaded all your typing and formatting goes away! Back to square one!

So I didnt make it to Friday again. It IS spring break though so I get to cut myself some slack, right? Or not...

The boyfriend and I spent three nights in Vegas during the beginning of the break so at least half (or most) of this post will be about Vegas....

The first night in vegas was spent wandering the new Hershey's Chocolate world in New York New York...
Made completely out of chocolate. How does it not melt?!
I only took a picture of this because the cupcakes were GINORMOUS!

...then splurging on dinner at Tom Colicchio's Craftsteak...

...and ending it with a Jabbawockeez show (with a free seat upgrade)!

Day 2 was spent wandering the Bellagio to check out their cherry blossom/Japanese garden display.

...lunch at Gordon Ramsay's Burgr
The coffee milkshake with hazelnut pudding on top was DIVINE!
...and ending with a Cirque du Soleil: Mystere show at night! (And another free seat upgrade! We were moved from the back section to the third row in the front section!)

Day 3 was SUPER windy, so much so that it was almost unhealthy to even go outside! (So much dust blowing around!) So we decided to stay indoors. We stayed at the Excalibur so just took the tram to Mandalay Bay to visit the Shark Reef Aquarium...

...and ended the day with a dinner buffet at the Wicked Spoon Buffet in the Cosmopolitan.

Can't leave Vegas without having at least one buffet! And yes, I ate all of the food in the picture!

Spring break also allowed me to have some extra cuddling time with my best furry friend...Snap!
He has his own instagram account! Become a follower today!

This is from today, but it still counts in this post because it's Fraturday, right? :)

A new playground just opened in my city today

This playground is very special because it was created specifically to be handicap friendly, but allows EVERYONE (disabled or not) to be able to play on everything in the playground. 

I personally think the music zone is the best, because you get to play a laser harp!

So cool! Just wave your hands (or if you are like me, run) underneath the arch of the harp and listen to the music you create!
It was very exciting to see such a cool new and innovative playground! To learn more about Magical Bridge Playground and it's origins, click here

Okay, I made it to the end. Hopefully you did too! Spring break was super busy but in a fun way. Despite the busyness, I was able to stay away from school work until today. It must have helped because I'm actually feeling ready to get back into the classroom! 

Hope everyone else's spring break was (or will be) just as fun as mine! :D
