Quick Trip to Vegas

We made a quick trip to Vegas this last weekend.  Dave's aunt Gwen died last Wednesday.  She lived in Boulder City which is just a few miles south of Las Vegas.  So, since we're only about 5 hours away, we thought it would be nice to head up there and see the family.  It was a nice trip.

Bryn was very excited and surprised by the pajamas I bought before the trip.  She's going through a Spiderman faze, so I bought these with the intent to bribe her out of her 5 pairs of old pajamas that are too small.  It worked like a charm.

At one point during the drive, Nick put this rag on his head.  He kept it there for at least 10 minutes.  Dave and I kept laughing and looking back at him, but he didn't care.

Monday night, after the funeral, we went to Caesar's Palace.  It has an amazing mall along with the hotel, casino, and restaurants.  We had a blast (wish we had more money to spend) and the kids loved all the statues and fountains.

This fountain had horses in it and Nick couldn't get enough.  It was really cute.  After a lot of window shopping, we had dinner at the Cheesecake Factory.

This is Dave with (L to R) his cousins Alan, Ray, and their Uncle Phil.  Dave is the youngest of, 65 grandchildren!  (I'm pretty sure that's what they said.  I'll have to double check that #)  Most people wouldn't think of a funeral as a fun trip, but it was and I'm sure Aunt Gwen would have approved.
