Surprise Trip, the Last 4 Days: Las Vegas

One ordinary day in February and completely unexpectedly Lance asked if I wanted to go to Las Vegas, just us. My practical side told him no because we should spend that extra money on student loans or other business stuff. But what the heck, we did it anyway!

We left the kids with Mom and Dad for four days since we were already in Twin Falls. I drove up to Boise and met Lance at Jerusha's where we had an Easter dinner with Jerusha's family, Allison's kids, and Donna and John. I wish we had more time to visit but we had to catch our flight.

We stayed at The Linq which was right on the strip and were able to walk everywhere or take the monorail, it was actually cold there.

We saw three shows: Showstoppers, Twisted Vegas, and Ka by Cirque du Soleil. We went to the Titanic exhibit that had actual artifacts brought up from various explorations to the ocean floor. We went to the classic car show and had ice cream a few times at Ghirardelli's. We rode the High Roller, a big observation wheel (like a ferris wheel) but each orb was completely enclosed and could hold 40 people; it made one round in 30 minutes. 

The best part was being able to sleep in, eating my food while it was hot, and above all just being with Lance! It reminded me of our time in Charleston before we had children.

 This restaurant served farmhouse type food and I ordered their Snickers pancake which was 14" in diameter. And yes I asked for extra butter.
 Lance even met Celine Dion! At least a masculine version of her.
We knew this Vegas trip would be the last "just us" vacation for a long time so I'm glad we did it. I'm thankful to Mom and Dad who made it possible by taking the kids. And thanks Honey for taking me and even letting me get a souvenir or two. We had so much fun and I'm so thankful we could go!!
