Vegas, baby!

Last week, Christian was invited to attend some meetings for work in Vegas and the company that invited him, invited me to go along too...I just had to pay for a plane ticket there (an alomost free week in Vegas sounded like a good idea to us)! My mom was kind enough to come and stay with the boys so we could go and enjoy a few days by ourselves. This was the first trip we had take, just the two of us since our honeymoon!! We left Tuesday morning and drove to Denver where we caught a plane to Vegas. Once we were in Vegas, we enjoyed a welcome dinner and then walked down part of the Strip. Wednesday, Christian had meetings until 1, so I had the morning to take my time getting ready and checking out the hotel. We stayed at the Flamingo, on the Strip, which was definately not the grandest of the hotels on the Strip, but it was nice. Wednesday after Christian got done with his meetings, we took a cab to an outlet mall and did a little shopping. After our shopping trip, we came back and got ready to go to BlueMan Group. It was a great show...very entertaining. We were on the third row, which included ponchos! We were a little scared about getting wet/dirty, but we left the show dry! After the show, we walked down the opposite side of the Strip and watched the fountain show at the Bellagio, and finished the night with dinner at our hotel. Thursday, after Christian was done with meetings, we walked the Strip some more, and that evening went and saw the show KA, which was pretty amazing to watch. After KA, we ate at Outback and made our way back to the hotel. Friday, we left our hotel bright and early (5:45), but in style (in a limo), to head to the airport to catch our flight home. It was a great couple of days with my hubby! We are so thankful to my mom for coming to watch our boys so we could go! This trip got us even more excited to go to Hawaii here pretty soon!!

We had to check out the flamingos and take some pictures so the boys could see them!

The representative that Christian works with from the company that brought him to Vegas, bought us tickets to the BlueMan Group along with transportation to the show in a limo! We felt pretty cool!! :)

All ready for the BlueMan show to start with our lovely ponchoes on!

Waterfountain show at the Bellagio. It was pretty cool to watch.

Christian gambling away his dollar. We both spent one dollar (I know...we were big spenders)on the slots. He won 10 cents...

...and I won 20 cents!

Tony loves Vegas....we used to go when UW played UNLV every other year in football. Looks like you had a great time. How fun to get away with just you and Christian! Glad you had fun.

Looks like a good time!! What a generous company, that makes life a little more fun!!

We're so boring or busy that we never got back to Vegas when Lindi lived there and now they're in Billings!! Now no Vegas for sure!!
