Las Vegas Day 5 - Chinese banquet with the in-laws

I had a bit of a sleep in after my night out, and hubby and kids and grandparents went down to the Mandalay Bay hotel to see Shark Reef.  It looks like they had a lot of fun.  There was a huge octopus there too!

I spent the morning lazing around with my sister then we had the wedding rehearsal at 2pm.

It was so formal!  There is a special way for my sister's fiance to take her hand and tuck into his arm, we have assigned positions and there is a special way for him to take her hrand for putting the ring on as well!  It looked rather awkward, it's like we're rehearsing for a play when it's only just a wedding!  I think I like it when it's all natural and not rehearsed... geez I hope the kids don't play up during the ceremony.

My cousin and her partner and her daughter and her partner came to see the kids after that, and we did some socialising.

That evening we had the chinese banquet in Chinatown at Harbor Palace (Sorry for the american spelling but that's how it's spelt here!).  We had a 10 course banquet which unfortunately came out all at the same time!  So that wasn't very good in my opinion.

We had Suckling pork, Abalone, Peking Duck, Crab meat, Sizzling Beef, Abalone, Prawns, Lobster, Scallops, Fried rice.  We had quite a bit of leftovers too!  But there was no way me or my sister were going to eat anymore, we had dresses to fit into!
