Happy Birthday Jila, 2006!

Postby KaraS on Sat Jul 29, 2006 1:51 pm

Ok, let's PARTY!

For her birthday, we're taking Jila to LAS VEGAS!

I've booked us into the Luxor so we will stay in the big black pyramid on the strip (very SG-1). And we'll be right next door to the Excalibur in case we want to soak up any of that Camelot ambience.

Dinner tonight will be at the Excalibur, at Ye Old House of Prime Rib. Yum!

I thought we could go over to the Hilton and do the Star Trek Experience first. After that, we could do the aquarium at Mandalay Bay, the Secret Garden at the Mirage, take a gondola ride at the Venetian or do any one of dozens of other fun things.

Hey Jila, it's YOUR birthday. What would you like to do?

Actually, it's Sigfried and Roy's Secret Garden and there are white tigers, white lions and dolphins. Some other animals too.

It's just cool.

*laughing* Yes, of course we can go. Kara this trip sounds great. I don't know Vegas anymore than Grack does so you're designated tour guide. Can't wait for dinner. That restaurant sounds like fun. When do we get started? :lol:

Well, I've been there twice now so I kind of know my way around the strip a little. If you want to start with the Secret Garden we can. We just have to catch the bus and head up the strip a little.

*Kara, Grack and Jila headed out the front door of the Luxor and walked around the enormous sphinx and headed across the street to pick up the bus.*

I hope some of the other show up. Maybe they can catch up to us at The Mirage.

Kara, Grack and Jila waited for Chryse and Kay to catch up with them and then they all boarded the bus. The bus took them down the strip and they got off in front of Harrah's. They crossed the street and took the moving sidewalk past the fountain and dolphin statues and entered The Mirage.

The lobby was nice but Kara led them to the left and past the gift shop where one of the white tigers was always on display.

The big cat was lolling sleepily on his side, flicking the end of his tail back and forth idily.

"Ooh, isn't he nice?" Kay said.

"He sure is." Kara agreed.

"But you've got to be in the pic too." Jila blinked to get the blue dot out of her vision.

"I'll hold the camera this time." Kay said as she took a step out of the line of Scoobettes.

"No," Jila shook her head and chuckled. "I want us all in the picture."

"Wait right here. Don't move." Kara walked through the archway and came back a moment later. "This is Michelle." Kara gestured to the woman who walked with her. "She works here. She's going to talk the picture for us.

The Scoobettes greeted Michelle and lined up again in front of the white tiger's cage. *click*

Jila blinked a couple more times and nodded her head once. Perfect

"Thanks Michelle." Kara took back the camera and turned back to the group. "C'mon, there's a show starting in a few minutes."

A Vegas Show! How cool! Waving bye to the tiger, the group piled in, full of excitement. All eyes shining. The Scoobs went on many adventures, but not anything like the Scoobs in Vegas. Now, the question is, could Vegas take the Scoobs? :-)

"Actually, it's not a show per se. They don't do "shows" at the Secret Garden. But they do show off."

Kara led the little group to the back of the hotel past rows and rows of slot and video poker machines. They went out a door and past the swimming pool to the enterance to The Secret Garden. They bought tickets and went through the enterance to the area of the dolphin pools. The dolphins were jumping and playing and showing off for the visitors. One of the keepers gave a little lecture and asked the dolphins to do a few tricks.

Then the Scoobettes went down the path to the area where there were more white tigers, white lions and a leopard (regular color).

"Aren't they magnificent?" Kara asked.

*NOTE: there are pictures of the critters in the Secret Garden in my photo section at the Yahoo website so you can see the lions, tigers and dolphins if you want to.*

After they had looked at the animals for awhile, they sat down at a table with a big umbrella over it.

"So, you want to do a show next?" Kara said. "Those are mostly in the evening. Want to see the Star Trek Experience first?"

Yeah, the Star Trek Experience is fun. When my mom and I were there we..., um....., ahem.....

Kara, Jila, Kay Chryse and Grack walked into the Las Vegas Hilton and through the casino floor to the Area where the Star Trek Experience is. They bought their tickets and stood on line. While they were waiting they examined the exhibits on the walls and the Star Trek memorabilia, including costumes and props used in the show.

A photographer stood them each up against the wall and took their picture. He didn't tell them why.

They went into the first of the two shows/rides and were kidnapped by Klingons! They were rescued by Cpt Picard and his crew who put them in a shuttlecraft to take them back to their own time but the Klingons pursed them and there was a firefight in the skies above Las Vegas. It was quite thrilling.

Afterwards, they were shown a place where they could buy their photos, cunningly inserted into cast photos of the various ST shows.

"So," Kara asked. "Do you want to catch lunch at Quark's bar or would you rather be kidnapped by Borg first?"
