Viva Las Vegas

Brady's Coworker Jerry decided that after this RIDICULOUS year we have had that we needed a weekend away and that we should head to Vegas. We kept telling him no, that it was too much but after Brady passed out in Denver and broke all his teeth Jerry was pretty insistent. We decided to take him up on his offer and off we went.
We got there Saturday morning and since we couldn't check-in yet we caught the bus and hit up H&M. I got Millie and Austin some really fun things. They always have the cutest kids clothes. After that we chilled in the hotel until going to see The Mentalist and to dinner at our favorite place. I don't know what it's called but they have the BEST Risotto ever. So YUMMY! I would go to Vegas just to eat it.
Sunday we slept in till 10:30, it was AMAZING! Just what the doctor ordered. Then we went to Denny's for some breakfast. After resting a little more we hit the pool. It was beautiful and the perfect way to cool down. Vegas is dang HOT! That night we walked around the strip, catch a movie (Inception, it was awesome) and ate dinner at HardRock.

Brady and I both look like we had a little too much to drink...

Now it's my turn...
Okay we're cute after all

It was around 113 degrees and this psycho was running. NO THANKS!

We had to wake up at 4:00am to make our flight home. I am not a morning person.
A HUGE thank you to Jerry for a fabulous weekend. I don't think we realized how badly we needed the break. You're too kind.
Thank you to Nancy and Lindsay for watching the kids for us. Poor Austin got sick while we were gone, he wasn't a happy camper. Brady also came home to his golf clubs being stolen. :(
We had an amazing weekend and although this has been an extremely tough week I am so glad we had the opportunity to have a weekend to ourselves.
Millie had clinic today, I'm still waiting to hear about her blood counts so I'll blog about her tomorrow.

Looks like fun! Pat and I have been feeling like we will never go on a vacation again! It is so nice to see you guys taking time as a couple. Maybe we have hope for a future one day after all ;)

Hope Austin feels better soon- nothing worse than a sick baby. Poor guy!
