. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas

I already feel like this was forever ago, but really was just two weeks ago.  Chris and I got to go away four days together and it was wonderful.  We haven't been on any kind of trip since having kids, only having left for less than 24 hours just a few times so this felt huge! I was nervous to leave the kids, but they did great and it was SO good for us to get away.  I still can't believe we got to go on a vacation!

Chris has an office in Vegas that he goes to a few times a year and his boss has always said he can bring me with, and everything worked out perfectly.  This was my first time going to Vegas and I don't think we could have had a better time! (Okay maybe if we had won some money, but that's about it.)

We left our house at 4:30 in the morning Thursday so got to Vegas with just about the whole day. We walked around the hotel a little bit, then got dressed and ready for dinner.  We had dinner at the Eiffel Tower restaurant and sat up high overlooking the fountains at the Bellagio (where we stayed).  They were beautiful and it was the prettiest view and probably the nicest restaurant I've ever been too. I loved every minute of it! 


We walked around a little while after dinner, watched the fountains some more and went to bed! Friday morning we got room service and then Chris went to the office.  It was the only sunny day there, which was perfect because all I wanted to do was lay by the pool. It felt so warm and was such a nice change from freezing cold weather at home!  I finished my first book before lunch time.  Chris came back around lunch and we stayed at the pool for a few more hours.  I may have gotten a tiny bit sunburned but was perfectly happy about it. 

Friday night we went and had drinks at a little bar in the hotel, and then went to this fancy sushi restaurant for dinner.  It was so delicious!  Chris' boss had got us tickets to see the Michael Jackson Cirque du soleil show. I have never been to a show or anything like that before.  It was loud and weird and really entertaining!  I would have seen it again, it was great!

Saturday morning we left our hotel early after breakfast and drove to Red Rock Canyon.  It was a little chilly and windy, but SO beautiful.  We climbed around all the rocks, and reached close to the top, which I was just a little proud of myself.  We walked around there for a few hours and it was so pretty.  

It was so windy out when we got back that they weren't having the fountains on outside the Bellagio and the rides they have weren't running, which what we planned to do that afternoon or evening. And too cold for the pool, so we just went back to our hotel room and watched a movie and I took a nap. It was wonderful.  We went to drinks and dinner, and then got last minute tickets to another Cirque de Soleil show.  It again, was really weird, but super impressive and I loved it. 

Sunday morning we left early and went to the airport home to our babies!  We had such a wonderful time, I can't say it enough.  It was such a treat to have that much time together, no major agenda and to just have fun together.  Such a good thing for our marriage!  And our kids did great while we were gone!  I'm so thankful for family that helped watch them.  What a gift to us!  And I will happily go with Chris whenever he needs to go back for a work trip. ; )
