Out of the blue–we got news that our Daney boy and his family would be in Las Vegas for about a week–there was only one thing to do…
Awesome too that Lily & Beckham both had soccer games there that week as well. Double duty roadtrip! Wahoooo!
We made a quick stop at the Creamery–you know…
long enough to get and ice cream cone, and get our picture taken with a cow. Heh, heh.
We drove, and drove and drove until the lights of the city came into view.
Now, honestly, none of us are particularly huge fans of Vegas. The whole place feels kinda creepy to tell the truth. But if my wandering Texas boy and his birdies are here then we’ll forge ahead!!
Ok, nowwww I feel better. Haha. Seriously though, it did make me happy to see the Trump hotel. So dang awesome.
Good old Nate found our hotel in no time and checked us in. Then all we had to do was wallllllllk to our rooms.
This place was so huge that there was an airport type moving walkway just in the nick of time!
Though I whined…I did not, in fact, die–as you can see.
Ahhhhhh….what a lovely room!! And what cute kids!
After a good night’s sleep, we were off to find my Texas boy!
We found them!!! Oh, it was so good to see Dane and Kortney, sweet little Merrick and Skylie and Linky. I didn’t take the pictures that I should have because I was too busy hugging them all.
This breakfast joint was the meetup place for the rest of the family travelers!
I know that other than Dane’s family–we all live right by each other, but for some reason it was just so nice to sit there and look around at everyone. I kept thinking–“These are allllll mine.”
So, so good to see them again. And SO incredibly good to have all my family in one room– even if it was just for a little while.
And did I mention–the food here was great too! The pancakes were bigger than the plate!
My BLT looked positively dangerous!
It was scrumptious, although I had to dismantle it before I could eat it. Nobody’s mouth opens that big.
After that– some folks went shopping…
did some soccer-y stuff…
and caught the water show at the Bellagio. Believe it or not, I stayed in the car in the parking lot because it was just too much walking for me. Look at these little treasures, would you?
Mine. Mine. Mine. Heh, heh.
I spent the last night at the soccer condo so that I could teach my class from there, Saturday morning.
The crazy boys stayed up half the night playing games. They laughed so much I thought someone would be sick.
We came home after two lovely days with all my kiddos together. I’m pretty sure that this is what Heaven is like.
My Heaven anyway.
