Vegas, Baby!

Last week, my mom, my dad, Jon, Nicole, Travis and I went to Vegas for a few days. Sunday after church, we drove to Little Rock because our flight was crazy early in the morning. On the way...we had a flat tire.

Some of us were up and at 'em Monday morning. Some of us were VERY tired that morning....


We got to Vegas before noon to be greeted with a limo...and no bag for Travis.

(This is where I will complain about how AWFUL it was that not only did they lose his luggage - and lots of his new clothes - but they STILL haven't found it)

While Jon, Mom and Travis were checking us in, I tried to find someone to make an excited face with me. Only one person was as excited as must have been his cool hat!

We had lunch at a FANTASTIC burger place in the Mirage called BLT. Then, we walked around, played blackjack and checked everything out.

That night, we went to the show "Love", which was pretty cool...kind of weird at times...but still cool. After the show, we went to dinner at Yolo's.

Tuesday, we had breakfast at Mon Ami Gabi and it was delicious! We shopped (and bought Travis a new wardrobe) and gambled the rest of the day.

That night, we went for cocktails at the Ghost Bar and to dinner at N9NE. Talk about delicious! Wowza! It was so good! Travis almost finished a while 22oz steak, but decided to save a couple of bites for breakfast the next day. :)

Wednesday, we spend most of the day at the pool and walked over to the "trashies" (this is what my dad calls the 'lower end' casinos that have $5 blackjack tables all day and night) Travis got several work calls while we were at the pool and I expressed my opinion about that.

Wednesday night, we went to dinner and to the Belagio to see the fountains. Then, we went to a comedy show at the Flamingo. After the show, we all called it a night fairly early.

We had SUCH a great time in Vegas. It was even better knowing we had such a fantastic sitter keeping the girls. Camryn did such a good job taking care of them while we were gone. The girls never missed a beat. And, nothing is better than coming home from vacation to a clean house and handmade welcome home signs from the girls!
