I'm Back!

Earlier this week, I got back from my Vegas/Family Reunion trip. I left my wonderful hubby for 4 days alone with the girls. It was much needed. And I am very greatful that he was more than willing to send me off (like I said, it was a much needed break).

So the first 2 days were spent in Vegas with my younger sister. She showed off her mad lady skills (aka flirting) and got us upgrades in everything that you could possibly imagine. Way to go Heidi. We had a blast shopping, site seeing, and just talking our heads off.



She's funny!


Ian told Heidi to make sure that I was wild and crazy. ....this is about as wild and crazy as I get. I spent a whole dollar on 1 slot machine. I know what you are thinking, "this girl needs to settle down." :) So I am not exactly "wild and crazy", oh well.


I took my lovely date/sister to dinner and then we went and saw Wayne Brady. The guy was hilarious! The show consisted of comedy, singing, and dancing. We were very impressed and very entertained.

After a fun time in Vegas, we headed into Utah for our family reunion. It was fun to see uncles, aunts, and cousins. Our family has one of these every other year and the past 2 times I have skipped. So it was fun to be back.


Here is my dad and his brothers. My poor grandmother had 8 boys! (One passed away several years ago. We really miss my Uncle Tom.)

And here I am with my family. It was so great that we could be there together.

I had a great time, and Ian and the girls were alive when I got home. Who can ask for anything more.

Wow, that sounds like a wonderful vacation. No kids, no cleaning, no laundry... Good for you! And I'm glad that everyone was still alive when you got back! :)

So, did you win some cash on that slot or what?

Anayansi said...

No! No winnings for me! Which of course makes sense...even when I try to be wild and crazy, it is never to the fullest. (plus, no need for any real temptation)
