What Happens in Vegas...















Well, Nothing too crazy happened in Vegas but we had a great weekend with Larry's staff at the Dental Town Conference.

We flew out Thursday night and came back Sunday Evening. There were 10 of the staff from his office there and it was great getting to know everyone. Not being in the office, I hadn't previously had a chance to get to know them as well. We were picked up from the airport in a limo... which amazingly held all 10 of us and our luggage.
















We stayed at Ceasasrs Palace and enjoyed it. The Conference was a great source of good info for the whole staff...and it served at a great teambuilding experience. I think Larry's favorite moment of the conference was meeting Lee Corso (Analyst of ESPN's College Gameday Football and former college coach.) Lee gave a great speech on the lessons he had learned in life, but afterward he opened it up to questions, and, of course, Larry's hand shot up. As if that wasn't enough...Larry later got a pic with him and he also had a long conversation with a dental legend who is credited to being the "Godfather of Oral Surgery."





My personal highlights were the Cirque show: Le Reve...which was amazing! I can't even describe it...but it was fantastic!! It combined, music, acrobatics, diving, comedy, dancing, and so much more. It is a must see if you are in Vegas!
We also got to see some old college friends that are doing a residency in Vegas...and it is always great to see friends. They took us to Mandalay Bay's Shark Exhibit and it was fun...and they also took us over to In-N-Out...which just speaks for itself.

I also was in the gift shop of Ceasars when Bette Midler walked less than a foot away from me. I wasn't prepared to take a picture...and I only noticed her because the cashier froze and stared...

But my absolute FAVORITE PART was when we were flying home. Larry was so excited because he had a "Priority Boarding" pass and he was so anxious to board that he was showing off in front of his staff and boarded a flight going to Springfield, MO....which was NOT our flight. We let him stay on for a while until I asked someone to go retrieve him. We all laughed so hard...it was hilarious. Even the others in the airport clapped and heckled him as he deboarded the WRONG flight. You would have had to been there...but it was great.

I bet the limo ride wasn’t as fun as the Segways!

You are right...Segways are WAY more fun!
