So much to do, so little time....
....that's how I feel everytime we go to Vegas, and I love it. Jason's been working there pretty much the entire summer (which explains why right now I'm devouring ice-cream, popping Pringles, watching "Confessions of a Shopaholic" and blogging all at the same time. That's my kind of multitasking.) After being cooped up from the heat we were excited for another vacation. We spent the week hanging out with family and great friends. It was also nice spending time with Jason, I think the kids' favorite part was when he took them out till midnight playing games and winning stuffed animals at Circus Circus. Vacations are the best. Jason hooked it up and got us upgraded to a beautiful top floor suite at the casino where he's been staying. We're talking plasma tv's in the bathroom and kitchen here, definately not the Marriott's we're used to staying in.

The nice thing about staying at a casino is that there is so much to do. We went to the theater one day to see "Up". The kids were so excited to be the only ones in the theater and I told them they could sit anywhere they wanted. Kylie sat at the very front and Jayden sat at the very back, until some cranky old lady and her husband came and sat right in front of Jayden and then complained loud enough for me to hear, "I don't want to sit by this kid the entire movie, he's going to be so loud!" Rude. Thanks for raining on our parade. We also had fun going to the arcade, swimming with my friend Kandice and her cute kids and swimming, bowling and going to the movies with cousins.
We usually avoid the strip whenever we go to Vegas, but it was kind of fun being tourists in Jason's hometown for a change. We went with Grandpa Young and their cousins to Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay and the kids thought it was awesome. We also went to dinner at the Chinese restraunt where Jason got his first job as a dishwasher, ahhhhh memory lane.of course no Vegas trip is complete with out a visit to Grandma's and with our good friends the Gublers and Morris' (thanks again for a delicious dinner!)

This picture perfectly describes the way we felt after an exhausting week of non stop fun as we headed up to Utah for more adventures....

It's great to see family and the cousins hangin' out. I miss Vegas. I haven't been there since December. I'm looking forward having Allen, Jason, and my parents come-up for Jessica's graduation. I'm really happy that Jason, Allen, my Mom, and I fly out for Grandpa's 90th birthday.

You guys really lived it up! I'm so glad you were able to get away and spend some time with Jason. It sounds like the kids loved doing some of the things you don't usually do when you go down there. Count on Jason for a hook up on the free hotel upgrade - sweet! I can't wait to hear all about the rest of your vacationing!
