YES it sounds shameful admitting this but Beau and I had never left our children overnight for the nearly ten years we have been married. So at the beginning of the month we were lucky enough to get the opportunity. My mom was coming for a little over a week and we thought, what better time to take some time for ourselves then now. So off to Las Vegas we went!
It took a lot on my part to be able to do this! I have such anxiety over leaving my children. But I knew with my mom they would be in good hands and I could relax!
And it was such a heavenly vacation!
We stayed here at the beautiful LUXOR!
I got a steal of a deal on some nice rooms from Orbitz.com.
We weren't sure what to do with ourselves at first! It felt so strange not to have to look after 4 little ones. But somehow we managed! HA!
We got to go to the BODIES EXHIBITION
It was fascinating, intriguing, and disturbing in some ways.
It was very interesting to see how intricate our bodies are. It definitely made me think how could anyone think we just evolved this way! UHHHH NO! Obviously a higher power was involved!
A good ONE time thing to see!
Then we went to the TITANIC EXHIBIT!
This was probably both of our favorite thing we did.
It was amazing to see actual things found. Hear actual stories and absorb some of the history!
We also did a lot of site seeing.
And shopping at some Pawn shops too.
We got to this Pawn shop and couldn't figure out why everyone had there cameras out. I thought , oh well this must be a really cool Pawn shop, then we realized we were at the pawn shop that is also known as PAWN STARS on television.
We also got to visit the SHARK REEF while we were there.
It was fun, but both Beau and I talked about the kids the entire time and how much they would loved it!
We also ran into lots of Celebs!
O.K. O.K., at the celebrity wax museum!
We had such a good time together. Just enjoying each other and enjoying all the yummy food and sites.
Although we both missed our children, it was much needed and long overdue! We always do date nights and have time to ourselves each week. But a long weekend away is definitely nice for a change!
Thanks Mom! I couldn't have left them with anybody but you. We appreciate and love you so much!
And...just for fun.....a look back....oh to be that naive and young again!! HA!
Still so in love with this man! EVEN more so! I am one lucky girl!
