LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A Seattle woman known as the Internet Grandma can cross one more item off her bucket list. Evelyn Kottman arrived in Las Vegas on Friday to celebrate her 103rd birthday.

Kottman last year posted on social media about wanting to celebrate her milestone birthday on the Las Vegas Strip.

Las Vegas officials decided to make her dream come true by offering her the trip of a lifetime.

When she landed at McCarran Airport on Friday afternoon, Kottman was greeted by showgirls and dancers from Thunder From Down Under. In fact, the all-male revue is on her itinerary.

In the past, Kottman has celebrated birthdays by getting a tattoo and going skydiving.
