Doug and I had the opportunity to take a little vacation, just the two of us, to Las Vegas just before thanksgiving. We went to Las Vegas because it was a quick and cheap getaway. A place where there was lots to do. The direct flight from Idaho Falls to Las Vegas made it so easy! And what wonderful in-laws I have for watching the kids!
We enjoyed walking around and seeing the cool buildings, the dancing fountains, and the volcano. We were able to go "the Beetle's Love" by circus de soleil which was really cool and awesome for most of it, but it does leave you with a dreary kind if feeling. We also went to the Bodies exhibit, which I thought was awesome. I had just discovered I was pregnant and was able to see a little 5 week embryo which was how far along I was. We went to the Mandalay Bay aquarium too. That was filun and really cool. Then, my favorite event was watching the Blue Man Group. They were hilarious and clean and left you with a much happier feeling than the Beetles.
We didn't care too much for getting our kids souvenirs that said Las Vegas on them, so we got them some colorful MnM plates from M&M's world. They love those plates!
We also enjoyed some terrific buffets which we got discounted prices for. Our casino still had a pool and hot tub open which we got to enjoy as well.
It was such a fun time to be with Doug. He is my very best friend and the man of my dreams. I love him so much and I am so grateful for him. Thanks for the vacation, honey!
