Viva Las Vegas!! We are HOME!

What a GREAT GREAT time we all had on our trip to Vegas!! It was the BEST 30th birthday ever! (hey it is my story and I am sticking to that age!) hee hee!!!

First off a BIG THANKS to Steve for a GREAT trip!! Thanks to the kiddos for NOT fighting and being soooo VERY GOOD!!! Thanks to Mom and Nancy for giving up work and joining us!! and Thanks to Tom, Peg, and Christa for joining us for dinner on saturday!

So lets see where do I even start... how about where the gal at dinner on saturday night wanted to know if I had a special boyfriend to sit next to me in the center for the photo at dinner... um no ... but I have a special hubby and kids~ she was like OH I thought you were a teenager! YEAH she is my new favorite friend! HA HA! that was a big laugh the whole trip!! Or shall I start with the fact the van driver put 12 of us in a 10 seater van and was worried the whole trip he would get pulled over and fired! LOL! WHY he did this we dont know he kept cramming us in! or how about I start with the BEAUTIFUL sunshine, and shorts we got to wear all 5 days! :)

I cant pick! So how about I start here and give the highlites! I took 350 photos! but will share only a few here in the slide show!!! :) Be ready for some layouts to come! I also have a couple photos to scan and share with you!! But havent scanned yet this AM!
So we headed out last friday ~ our plane landed EARLY~ yeah!!! Nancys was late, so we all got there the same time! PERFECT!! Headed to the hotel, I didnt know where we were staying, to FUN at the Excaliber! I have shared some photos in the slide show in the daylite and nite lite! :) We get to our room to find one bed... Steve goes to FIX things.... by knocking on the ajoining door in our room! he got TWO rooms so the kids for the 1st time had their own room~ to say they were EXCITED is an understatement! LOL!!! so that was fun!! Then off to the strip we went for fun! :) We got to swim almost everyday! Got some FUN goodies, ATE lots! LOTS of pictures...some slot play! NO big winnings! But FUN! some FUN adult time out!! :) See those Fat Tuesday cups in the photo... yeah we filled them a couple times! hee hee! YUM!!! and FUN! :) Steve and I went to see Louie Anderson, he was soooo FUNNY!!!! We did a meet and greet before the show, that was cool~ I have a of the needs to scan! :)
We went to some fun restaurants... Margarittaville , Hard Rock, Toby Keiths Bar and grill to name a few ! Saturday night was our FANCY birthday dinner at Circo in the Bellagio.. YUM!!! We saw the water show that night.... a few times from our table and outside... I shared a photo of the watershow from up in the Eiffel Tower...
We got to go swimming a few days.. they have such odd pool hours..10-5pm ~ so we had to get that in.. the pool was soooo COOL! Oh we got to go see the Secret Garden at the Mirage... they had a BABY dolphin it was so cute! It was so neat to see them doing things... then we saw the white tigers, lions, and reg. colored lions and tigers!... we went to the shark reef too~ that was neat ~ , saw the pirate show at Treasure Island... took the kiddos to circus circus for some fun! Have I mentioned SHOPPING! oh yeah.. lots of fun... went to the M & M store 4 times! Margarittaville twice!, ABC stores.... um 10 times, Walgreens 25 times! LOL!! you get that picture! it was just a GREAT fun trip! We got home last night about 9pm, our plane was 30 minutes late, and to start with we didnt even have seats the plane was so FULL , BUT we got on, thanks to 4 people giving up seats and the gate agent getting us 4 seats, not in the same row but we had 2 and 2! YEAH! .... I am sure I will remember more, and will blog about that too~ so now comes the REAL FUN! LAUNDRY!! and unpacking!! :)
