So most of you know that I spent last weekend in Vegas, and I have to say it was the BEST VACATION EVER. No joke, I really didn’t want to leave and have felt with drawls since I’ve been back. It was so care free and there were no responsibilities and that was absolutely lovely.
We left Thursday about 5ish, and hit the road in Josh’s bug with Max in the back playing games, and me riding shotgun running the iPod. It was so much fun! We stopped in Nephi to have dinner at One Man Band, stopped for gas in Cedar City, and made it into Vegas at about midnight Vegas time. By the time we rolled over the hill and saw those city lights we were already excited because we were already having an awesome time!
Then we decided to trek down to the Stratosphere to get my “mile high Margarita” that I’d been excited for. We walked approx. 4 miles, and I was wearing brand new shoes so I managed to tear my feet up pretty good, but after we got the margaritas we caught the tram back to the hotel.
That evening we drove back down the strip to Slots A Fun to have their “half-pound hot dog”, and it was only $3.99 for the hot dog, chips and a drink. It was a steal, and it was pretty yummy too!
Saturday morning we got up and made our way to The Palms for their $6.99 breakfast buffet, but only made it in time to have a half hour to dish up and eat. Then we hopped in the car and drove to Henderson so that I could see Aunt Patty and the Koh family, and so that Max could stop at his brother’s mom’s house.
It was really depressing to get up and check out on Sunday, but we were out of their by 11 and then made our way over to Chinatown to eat at Sam Woo. Sam Woo was this amazing authentic Chinese restaurant in LA that I used to love, so I had to drag them their to try it too. It was a major success as both of the boys really enjoyed the food and will probably dream about it like I do from now on…
On the way out of town we stopped and met up with Tonya, who I hadn’t seen in over two years. It was so good to see her and my nephew Jamaal, and get to introduce her to Josh and Max. She’s one of my best friends, and they’re two of my best friends, and they got along smashingly! I can’t wait for her to move back to Utah!
The boys and Me before leaving Vegas. I love these guys so much!
Suffice it to say, I’ve been missing the trip and missing spending that time with my two boys. The first night back, it was hard to get used to sleeping in my bed alone and the lack of snoring too! Haha!
More pictures will be up on my Facebook and Myspace soon!
