Vegas Baby

Yes, I know - this post is well overdue.  It's been one of those weeks again so I'm just now uploading pictures from our amazing trip to Vegas.  Steven and I are incredibly blessed to have spent two fun-filled and exciting days with two of our best friend Chris and Erika (brother and sister).  They have been two of the truest, most devoted and sincere friends we have ever made.  As many of you know, things have been kind of difficult for Steven and I over the past two months and two days spent with Chris and Erika was just the ticket.  I laughed until I cried more times than I can remember.  It is nice to be surrounded by people who you know would do anything possible to help you at a moments notice - especially when life gets tough.  So this early birthday trip was just what the doctor ordered.

Caesar's Place - This place was HUGE!

We spent the day Sunday and Monday doing a little sight seeing.  You can walk around Vegas for HOURS at a time and still not see everything.  The group was a little more than annoyed with me because I would randomly stop to take pictures of everything I saw.  Thank the Lord for Erika - because the boys were ready to just walk away and leave me.  I can kind of be like a five year old sometimes....

New York - in Vegas??

After what felt like hours of walking, we ate lunch at the world famous Pink's.  I had the best chili cheese dog of my life. I don't even want to think about the amount of calories - because those don't count on vacation right??
                                                                                      
I can't believe I did that to myself!

                                         
I hope I don't regret this...

Cirque Du Solel and the Bellagio fountain show were by far my favorite experiences of the entire trip - so I will save those for a different post.  I truly had a blast in Vegas.  We aren't exactly the "party till the sun comes up and get CrAzY" kind of people.  We saw some sights, ate well and spent much needed time catching up with good people.  It was a wonderful birthday celebration.

I don't know...I kind of want one of those hot dogs!

Kelly said...

Ahhh! I was the same way! But my group of friends just kept on walking when I would stop for a picture and then I'd scramble to keep up! :-) Thankfully we went in February, so there wasn't A LOT of tourists where I could get lost! Looks soo much fun, can't wait to read/see more!

Oh, you're making me want to go back to Vegas!! I went (for the 2nd time) almost 3 years ago...Cirque de Solel was there then too and I wanted to go sooo badly! I'm a little jealous. I've been to Vegas twice and I STILL haven't seen all there is to see. =)
