Las Vegas Weekend

Way back at the beginning of the year our good friends Mike and Sarah asked if we wanted to join them on a Las Vegas trip. We didn't have to think about it too long, of course we wanted to go on a getaway! My brother and his family also live in Vegas so that was a big reason we said yes to the trip. It was a fun time. We all drove down together and talked and laughed almost the whole way. I say almost the whole way because when it was my turn to drive everyone went to sleep! Boring for me! We got to Vegas about lunchtime and Mike's special request for the trip is that we go to Cheeburger Cheeburger, so we hit them up for lunch. Both Nate and Mike ordered and finished the one pound burger challenge and got their pictures put on the wall of fame. After lunch we shopped a bit then went back to the hotel and rested for an hour or so and then got ready and went to the Las Vegas Temple - such a great experience! I love going to the temple. We hit up dinner that evening and finished the night off playing our favorite game, hand and foot. Sarah and I lost to the boys big time. The next morning we went to the Paris hotel for a brunch buffet. We got stuffed and then headed back to the hotel for a little nap. Then in the afternoon we ran to the store and then had a hand and foot rematch. Sarah and I lost again! So frustrating. That evening Nate and I were able to go have dinner with my brother and his wife. It was so good to see them and get to hang out a bit. We met back up with Mike and Sarah and ended the night with milkshakes. It was time to go home the next morning. We were sad that our little getaway was over but we were also ready to head home. Thanks Mike and Sarah for a fun trip!
