Last weekend Rob and I decided last minute to go down to Las Vegas. We basically invited ourselves, but I am glad we did. Andrea, Tom, Allison, and Annalise we planning on making the trek to Vegas to vist Ashley and Spencer (Robs cousin and her husband) and that sounded fun to us so we suggested that we join, they needed responsible chaperones, right? ;)
We got there Friday night and Ashley was throwing a Valentines Party for their friends that night. We had fun playing games, eating junk, getting our Just Dance on, and getting to know some new people.
Saturday we literally shopped till' we dropped. Normally this would be right up my alley but after the first few hours my feet, back, legs etc were hurting too bad to really enjoy the experience. We walked the strip and saw the Bellagio fountain show, saw the atrium at the Bellagio, and got my most favorite treat, Frozen Hot Chocolate from Serendipity's.
I had been really wanting see a show in Vegas so on Saturday night Rob took me to see Le Reve at the Wynn. It was AMAZING! The whole time I was thinking how do these people do that?? It's a water show, so the middle of the theater is a round pool and the performers would be in and out of the water. Definitely a must see.
(Horrible picture, but it's the best the iphone could do)
Sunday after church we drove to the Hoover Dam. It was huge and really cool to see!
It was a great weekend getaway! Just what we needed. If only there were a beach in Vegas....
