Vegas - Friday Night!

I got to Brandon's house around 10:30 I think. It was a long long drive but not as bad as I thought it would be (I tend to get really tired when I drive and this was my first long road trip without anyone in the car with me to keep me company and awake!) Becky let me borrow her thing that lets me listen to my ipod thru the stereo and that was a HUGE help cause I could sing at the top of my lungs! So between that and my friends letting me call them and talk for long stretches of time (I don't know if I've mentioned it before but I have THE BEST FRIENDS EVER!)

Anyways so I got to Brandons and after unloading my car (if you ask Brandon I had a TON of stuff...but I would only say I had alot of stuff! hee hee!) and some very needed catching up...we decided that we wanted to go out! We WERE in Vegas for heaven's sake and it wasn't TOO late!! So we jumped in Brandon's truck and headed to the strip! We decided to head to the Treasure Island Show! It was a little more 'adult' then I remember it being as a kid but we sure had fun!

Here we are waiting for the show to start!

This one's a little blurry but it's the ship coming around to get in place!

This is of the 'guys' ship! Not bad looking guys!

This was when the guys hit the girls ship. The show itself was pretty lame (okay really really lame) but the special effects made it totally worth it!

The girls sunk the guys ship!

Brandon's friend Katy met up with us during the show and hung with us for the night! After the Treasure Island show we decided we wanted some Ben & Jerry's but they were closed :( so we ended up going to Denny's on the strip and getting milkshakes. Who knew that Denny's would be so popular on the strip! :)

We did take a moment to get a picture of us 'gambling'!

I can't remember anything else major that we did that first night. I think just walked around some more and then we headed back to Brandon's place to crash cause we were exhausted (I think it was like 2 in the morning or something which was 3 Utah time!)

Stay tuned for our Saturday adventures!

Vegas - Road Trip To Vegas!

I left work Friday (Sept 4) around 1:00 and headed down to Vegas! I wanted to get to Vegas as soon as I see Brandon and start our AWESOME weekend of fun!!!

Side note: The day before I left (Thursday) my grandma called me and told me that her cousin had passed away and his funeral was in Cedar City and so that meant that her and my Uncle Boyd and Aunt Norma (Triple love them!) were driving up from Tucson! When we got talking about our plans we realized that we would probably hit Cedar City at about the same time! So we decided that I would take a break in my drive and see them for a bit! (I was so so so excited to see them! I hadn't seen Boyd & Norma since April of 2005 - way way way too long!)

As it turned out I beat them to Cedar by about 15 minutes is all! So I just found their hotel and waited in the lobby til they got there! When they pulled up it was all I could do not to run out like a 5 year old and jump up and down at their car! (Okay - maybe I did a small version of that!) Did I mention I was really excited to see them? :)

After I helped them unload the car - we headed to dinner. We found a little diner in town and had so much fun chatting away and just getting caught up! After dinner I didn't want to leave yet (I wanted to get to Vegas but just wasn't ready to say goodbye) so I went back to their hotel for a while.

Grandma, Me, Aunt Norma, and Uncle Boyd (it took alot of begging to get him to be in the picture!)

I have always wished that I lived closer to Boyd & Norma! We would have had so much fun! 4 years is way to long to go without seeing them! The only thing that I was sad about was that I didn't get to see Nikki & Kristi (their girls), but I had a GREAT time!!!

Grandma, Me, & Aunt Norma!!! Can you just see how happy I am!?!?!?

My grandma was trying to get me to stay the night there with her so I didn't have to drive in the dark - I admit I was slightly tempted...until they were talking about going to bed...AT 8:30!!!! thank you! So I said my goodbyes and headed the rest of the way to Vegas!!!!

Stay tuned for more Vegas blogs...
