Vegas Baby!

Las Vegas with the kids … not sure I ever thought I would do this!! Drove to riverside Friday night to get just a little closer and to shorten the drive to Vegas. Left riverside by 8 am kids only asked if we were almost there 100 times before they both passed out by 9:15!! Not exactly the rowdy crowd we are used to traveling to Vegas with.

Rylee loves a photo op!  Any prop anytime anywhere!
We did a bunch of things that I can say I have never done in Vegas before. Usually when Chris and I go to Vegas we sleep most of the morning stay up all night drinking, having fun, gambling, and partying. When we decide to wake up around noon we head to the pool. To see these things during the day was quite an eye-opening experience. Especially when you throw kids into the mix,it's a whole different story. We walked the strip, watched the water show at the Bellagio, watched some random guys break dance on the street and walked up and down every escalator.

We were so lucky to meet up with Caitlyn and her wonderful husband Spencer for lunch while we were in Vegas.  I love that the Wilson's are all over the country and it doesn't matter where you go one pops up and you get to see them and it's just like old times. Caitlyn is so fun and I'm so excited for the new chapters that are ahead of her.

We stayed at treasure Island because Cirque du Soleil was playing at the Mirage and they were right next door to each other. We thought the kids would love seeing the pirate ship and the show. When we got there we found out that the show was under construction and no longer running. Boo-hoo! But there was a very cool tram that took us from the treasure Island to the Mirage and we must have ridden that a couple hundred times in 24 hours. I think all kids love a hotel room love taking the elevator they love the little key card that they put in the slot they love jumping on the bed and opening all the drawers, looking out the window!!  Hotel rooms are like paradise to a 3 and 5 year-old.
When we all got dressed I was pleasantly surprised at how coordinated we were. I couldn't have planned it better for a family photo shoot. Chris and I were given many compliments on how wonderfully behaved our kids were at lunch and how adorable they were many times throughout the weekend. We looked at each other at the end of the night and were so proud of our family …. We did it!!!  All of our hard work had paid off and finally turned the page into a new chapter of our lives!!  We can officially take the kids ANYWHERE and have a great time. 
A client of Chris's got us great seats to the Cirque du Soleil Beatles Love show and gave us a backstage tour. He is in the show and does this high swing acrobatic hope to God you don't fall from the sky act which was absolutely amazing. Before the show he took us backstage and gave us a tour. The kids loved going backstage checking out the costumes looking at the wigs and seeing all the fun props they had behind the stage.
Rylee and Brady were so excited to see him in the show. During his act he actually looked over waved and smiled at us. I was praying to God he wasn't going to fall off the swing and plummet  to his death while trying to wave to my children. He is an amazing guy and we were so lucky to meet him and get to see him in the show!!
Family Vegas trip in the books!
