Las Vegas!

Chris and I won a free trip to Vegas for listening to a travel company! So we went in the middle of August. My mom kept the kids, which was the hardest thing I have had to do. I was so afraid our plane would crash! Crazy! Anyway, so we had no plan so we just walked around. I would not recommend going to Vegas with NO plan. It is a very dirty city and when there is no plan you see it all! But it was a nice break from the kids! It's the first time we've left Jennilyn, and I have only been away from Jayden overnight when I have been in the hospital!
This guy creeped me out, but I wanted a picture. He held onto my thumb and when I went to leave he wouldn't let go!There is a Gondola behind us in the water if you look closelyWhoppieWe stayed at the Circus Circus Hotel. It was nice, and I think more kid friendly, so that was nice for us, but it is at the far end of the Strip, so we did a TON of walking. My feet hurt so bad. My ankles were black by the end of the day! But we spent a day at the theme park at Circus Circus and it was fun. Most of the rides were closed, so we rode the same ones quite a few times, but it was fun!The Belligio Fountains are my most favorite!! That is probably the only thing I would EVER go back for! We probably watched like 10 shows. It is just amazing and Beautiful! I know these pictures don't do it justice, but I'm putting some up anyway!M & M World! I had no Idea they could fill a 3 story store with M & M stuff!Of course we had to go to the New York hotel, which is almost the total OPPOSITE end of the Strip! The Brooklyn Bridge! I know it's not quite the same size, but we are standing pretty close to the same spot where Chris proposed, just the wrong side of the country! (No, we are not in this picture, we are just taking it)It was a great little break, but I was SO Happy to come home to my little kiddos!!

Looks like you had fun. You should have gone to see a circ de solei show. That Gondola you saw is where my brother darin got married. It was weird people were taking pictures of them just because they thought it was cool=)
