And just like that, 2 days later, we were hitting the road to Vegas! We've wanted to go since we got here, but with the twins so little and high maintenance (I'm looking at you Jackson and your oxygen, monitor, medicine, and bottles) we'd been holding out on the trip...then I was pregnant. Then we had a newborn. And just like that, we've been in Cali for 2 1/2 years and had not been to Vegas yet.
I knew I had some college friends coming into town and I texted my sister to see if they had some free time to hang out with us and it worked out as the perfect weekend to road trip!
The trip out there goes like this...
A finally you reach civilization and just like that you're back in civilization and around the corner from Las Vegas!
We parked, headed to the strip to meet up with some clowns I know...
Then we wandered the town while trying to recreate moments of the Hangover.
Jack really wanted to gamble but we eventually convinced him that some kids games were practically the same thing. I mean, they light up and take all your money too right?
The kids were pretty tired so we headed to my sister's house for dinner. It was nice having some quiet family time after a crazy day of driving and exploring the strip!
I was a little nervous how the hotel stay would go, and there were some trouble moments at about 3am, but overall, they did really well.
Their favorite part was definitely the free breakfast the next morning ;) They had a blast picking out food.
We got dressed and ready for day 2 of Vegas fun!
But spent the majority of the day at the Venetian checking out the boats.
By early afternoon, without a nap, the twins were ready to be done. So we said bye to my friends and hit the road back to LA. We would have stayed the entire long weekend, but we had big plans for Monday morning. 2 days was enough Vegas fun though for us. The trip back took a good 7 hours (ughh!) but included a trip to Sonic so it wasn't THAT bad ;) Overall, we had a really fun time in Vegas and I think all of the kids thought it was really fun to check out all the sights. Until next time Vegas :)
