Anyways, to cover my stay in Las Vegas, I'll review what went on in a couple different segments, all in different styles. It's time to review my time there.

Dear Jernel, last Sunday, I went up to Las Vegas, Nevada, with my parents. We had fun. We did a lot while we were up there. We stayed at a big hotel called "Mandalay Bay". The windows were gold and shiney. Our room had two beds. Mom and Dad stayed in one. I slept in the other. My uncle Phil from Seattle stayed with us a couple nights too. He is cool. I like him.
My parents gambled a lot. They lost a lot of money. I put some money in a machine a couple times, and lost it. I thought it was stupid, so I stopped. Uncle Phil didn't gamble a lot either.
We did a lot while in Las Vegas. Uncle Phil and Mom saw some hammerhead sharks. Dad and I went on a helicopter ride in the Grand Canyon. It was fun. I took pictures. They served some champagne to celebrate the flight. I had some. It tasted bad. It was really bitter. That was the only alcohol I had in Las Vegas. We also looked at "the strip". There were a lot of bright lights and casinos there. A couple casinos gave us beads. They didn't want to see my breasts, though. There were also a lot of strip clubs there. I didn't go to any. There were a lot of pamphlets and cards advertising a lot of these places around Las Vegas, put in vendors, plus blowing around with pollution. A man also tried to sell me cocaine, but I told him "no". I asked him if Gameworks was open instead. On our last night there, Dad treated us to see Lance Burton. He was a neat illusionist magician. He made a sports car appear. He also made ducks appear from nowhere. I don't know how he did it. I also visited a nightclub. It was the first I ever went to. They played music so loud it hurt my ears. I went home early from there, and went to bed.
Las Vegas was really fun, but I don't want to live there. Dad says he wants to go again and spend two weeks out there. I don't know if he is joking or not. I hope he is. I don't like seeing him and Mom losing money to the "Wheel of fortune" slot machines. They lost a lot of money.
