A Girl with many Accessories...

So we met Jae at Burger King yesterday for lunch. I had just picked up Addison from pre-school. She got one of those paper crowns from the lady at Burger King. When she got in the car, I realized the kid had more accessories on than I wear on a fancy day!!!


11 silly bands, a necklace, a handful of bows in her hair, a crown, and a pair of glasses.

Yikes, wonder what we're in for!



And, yes...it has been brought to my attention that a lot of Quenton's pictures include his paci. What can I say, the kid likes his paci? If it makes him happy, I'm happy!

What a trip!

Okay, so I've posted pictures of our trip below, but wanted to tell you a little bit about it also...

It was nothing short of amazing! We had an awesome time, and have decided we will try to go back once a year. It was worth every penny we spent! We got there on Wednesday night (they are two hours behind us, so 3 hours for you east-coasters). We gambled that night (which I found out is NOT my thing...I don't have fun AND I lose money!) Thursday we visited a lot of the hotels, and did a LOT of walking. Friday morning we got up and went to Caesar's Palace to spend some time at the spa, which was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!! I really just can't even describe it. Just to give you an idea...they had an "Arctic Ice Room" which was set at 52 degrees, and snowed moisturizer on you as you sat there! What!!! Crazy! Anyways, after the spa, we headed out for an afternoon of shopping in the hotel. Talk about high-end shopping. Whew.

Friday night we went to a restaurant called Switch. Every 30 minutes, the ENTIRE atmosphere of the restaurant changes...walls, lighting, music...EVERYTHING! Next, we headed over to XS, the largest and most expensively made night club in the country. Once again, just like everything in Vegas, it was over the top. Gold walls with statues, dancers on little stages throughout the club, an outdoor area with a waterfall and pool. Ridiculous. Tony Romo was there that night!!!

Saturday, we ate lunch, headed out to the pool, went to dinner at a Japanese steakhouse, and then went to a show, La Reve. It was fantastic!!! It was like Cirque de Soleil on steroids. Parts of it under the water, stages that came in and out of the water, tons of dancers, acrobats, etc. Seriously...it was amazing.

Then...we flew home on Sunday. It was the perfect amount of time to be in Vegas. Jae and I agreed we couldn't have made it another day. We were exhausted. But we enjoyed every single second we were there! Totally worth it!!!!

And...I don't think the babies had any idea we were even gone! They had so much fun with my mom and dad. Don't forget to check out the pictures in the post below!
