Scenery around Scotland

 Scotland HighlandsOn one of our weekends we drove from Elgin, Scotland over to the Isle of Skye.  These are a few photos we snapped along the way.  Scotland is a stunningly beautiful country.  After living in Vegas for so long it was shocking to see all that green!

This was one of the cutest towns we came across, Pitlochry.  It's a theater town.  Unfortunately I did not get tickets ahead of time and by the time we got into town the shows were sold out.

Firefly Tapas restaurant -Vegas

Firefly has the best happy hour in Vegas and it might just be our favorite restaurant in town.  We've been to all of their locations and they are all wonderful. The location closests to the strip is at 3900 Paradise Rd. You will definitely want to eat here on your next Las Vegas Vacation.

 Most of Firefly's menu consists of tapas, small plates.  Their bacon wrapped dates stuffed with cheese and almonds is to die for.  If for no other reason go here and eat them; you will thank me!

 They have a variety of hot and cold tapas to choose from including the Spanish staple Patatas Bravas.  If you go during happy hour you can get half price pitchers of Sangria or Mojitos.  The pitchers are huge. Oh, and it's kid friendly.  My kids love it there, because they get to pick out  lots of things to try.  Usually a grilled brie sandwich with a cup of tomato soup.

El Segundo - Las Vegas

I consider El Segundo to be one of the best Mexican food places in Vegas and it's kid friendly.  It's definitely in my top three.  I base that completely on the food.  I don't care what a place looks like as long as the food is good.  With that said I have to add that their atmosphere is fantastic.  It's dark in there in the evening or I would have gotten some pictures.  Their location is great in the Fashion Show Mall right on the strip.  Their patio over looks the strip.
Their prices are a little on the high side, but I got a Restaurant.com certificate and it offset the cost. You have to pay for chips and salsa, which normally would irk me, but they were pretty cheap, bottomless, and came with three different salsas.  All three salsas were good.

My husband ordered a salad and I got the fajitas.  Both were good and they were huge portions.

The kids split a nachos and I wasn't that impressed with them. There wasn't much to them and the portion was a lot smaller compared to the other items we ordered.
