Our Vegas Vacation

People keep asking me if we had a good time on our trip. I always answer "yes, it was great." Then I thought about it and really, ANY trip would be good when it's just Ben and I! I saw people trying to wrangle their kids all over the place and just kept thinking, "wow, I'm soooo glad our kids are at home." Don't get me wrong, I love them to death. I missed them like crazy. But it's awfully nice to have some adult time with Ben. So, the highlights of our trip were the warm weather, time by the pool (no pictures there, sorry) gambling our life savings away (I won $24 on penny slots!), Jersey Boys (a musical) and of course, eating enough to feed a small country. Oh, I can't leave out our terrifying ride on the Stratosphere, eating at In-and-Out as much as possible, playing shoot-em-up games at Game Works, and seeing all the crazy drunk people on the street. I saw Batman and the Joker. Tyler thinks I'm the luckiest person in the world. It was a wonderful trip and I feel like a real person again after having a few days where I didn't have to change diapers or play ring around the rosie.

heck, i'm totally jealous you got to meet the dynamic duo, man. way to go. your trip does sound fun and don't worry about being happy that you were kidless. deep down we all love to be away from them at least once a quarter. did i say that out loud?

That first picture is awesome. You and Zach(?) look like people possessed by the game.
