Cirque du Soleil - Alegria

What a wonderful night! I love Cirque performances.  I have seen La Nouba in Orlanda, FL and also "O" at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.  Sunday I was able to add Alegria to that list.  Each one is so different and so amazing.  It's always a mesmerizing show and I cannot wait for the next one...hopefully it will be LOVE, the Beatles Tribute back in Las Vegas.

I'm already planning my Halloween costume for this year.  I want to be HER! Isn't she lovely? 
She was the main performer/singer for the show.

We had great seats and I knew cameras would not be allowed, but I brought it anyway.  I was right - they were not allowed.  As a matter of fact, they were "strictly prohibited!"

This was made quite clear the moment we parked our car.  This was the first of many signs right from the parking attendant.  I had my camera disguised in my hat, covered by it's strap, in the bottom of my purse.  I'm no rookie.  I've done this before.  You could not see it.  In it was coming!  We hand over our tickets.  We go through the metal detectors.  We get our purses checked. We get our camera purses handed back to us.  They didn't see it.  Then....the lady asks us if we have any cameras or video-recording devices on our person.  Gulp!  I don't lie.  I should have.  "Yes, ma'am...I have a camera."  Dummy, dummy, dummy!  I was escorted along with multiple others to go check our camera.  It was fine.  I wouldn't have used it anyway because somewhere between the ages of 25 and 29 I became a chicken....or maybe a grown up.  You pick.

After the fabulous show I was given my camera back.  Thankyouverymuch!  I tried to snap a quick shot of my momma and me in the parking structure.  Lol! We had a few attempts!

I love my mom so much.  She is an amazing woman who always puts others first...including me.  I am blessed by her. I LOVE YOU MOM!!!

After that, we were off.  It was too cold to walk around downtown and take pics, so I snapped a few from the moving vehicle.  Not my finest work to say the least...
