An Adults Only Post?

Yep, that's right.  One post, where the only pictures with people in them are adults!  Jer and I took a 4 day break from the kiddos and flew the coop.  We checked an item off both of our bucket lists and went to Vegas!
We stayed at the Paris Hotel.  I loved it.  The room was great, the restaurants were good and it was right across from the Bellagio, so we had a great view.
The view from our room:

We tried hard to perfect the self portrait on this trip. 

This was one of my favorite spots!  The quarter slots at the Golden Nugget with a nice cold Coca-Cola.  Ahhhh.
We played a few other places, but our two favorites were the Golden Nugget and the Four Queens, both downtown spots.  We played a few hands of blackjack on the strip, but I'm not a regular player and $10 min. tables mean quick $$ down the drain for me. . .

We rented a car one of the days (mustang convertible!) and went out to the Hoover Dam.

It was pretty hot, but we wanted to get out and hike a little.

Then we came back in to town and did a little more sight seeing.  We had to stop at the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop from the show 'Pawn Stars'.  No buying or selling for us, but fun to see.

Did I mention that it was hot?

We had to get this picture for the girls!  A Castle! 
We also rode the roller coaster at NY NY, pretty crazy!


We are happy to be back home to cooler temperatures and green grass!  Oh, and the kids, who are supposed to be napping right now after spending 4 days at the fabulous Camp Carter (we owe them big time), but who can't fall asleep because they are too busy crying about how they aren't tired.  ; )
