Las Vegas

Earlier this month we took a trip down to Vegas to be with my sister and her husband and some of their friends while they went to the Mt. West Basketball Championship. We didn't go to the tourney, but we had a lot of fun hanging out in Vegas. We especially enjoyed the sunny 80 degree weather!

We visited the Ethel M Chocolate Factory and Cactus Garden. Kind of a strange combination, but fun nonetheless. You can tell Lauren is soaking up the rays! (And obviously not scared of the biting cacti)

This is on one of the trams on the Strip. Yes, we broke down and bought one of those monkey leashes for Lauren. She loved it! I swore we would never use one on our child, but you try keeping track of a curious 3 year-old who has no concept of fear, on the Las Vegas Strip! You'd buy one, too!!

One morning Ty and Brad and Uncle Hank got up real early to go look at the new bridge at Hoover Dam. They had a lot of fun, and I was able to make a lot of "Dam" jokes. It was a win-win for everyone!

Random Unrelated Picture:
Last weekend, Brad took the kids up to Logan to spend some time on Uncle John's ranch. Ty caught this chicken and actually held it! Couldn't be prouder!


  1. Isn't it funny what you end up doing as parents that you didn't think you'd do?! I think you're smart for getting a leash for Lauren. I bet it made things much easier! Love the photos! Looks like you guys had a great time :)

    I saw your mom a couple Sundays ago! It was so nice to see her! I even got a hug : )

  2. We have one of those leashes. We haven't used it yet, but I am sure we will when we go to busy places, its worth it to keep the kids safe! Looks like you guys had fun and sure looks nice to be in nice weather!

  3. LOVE the picture of Lauren in the sun. So cute! We had such a great time. Thanks for coming to Vegas!

  4. Fun weekend! Looks like we missed out on the bridge experience. Your Lauren is soo cute. Tell her Baby Kate says hello.

  5. What a fun trip! My kids loved the M&M store last time we were in Vegas, but that was three years ago! Your kiddos are adorable, by the way. :)
