We survived Vegas! We actually arrived home on Sunday to very happy girls and clearly, thankful grandparents. (Thanks again mom and dad!!)
We went with six other couples and it was a blast. We flew out last Thursday and met a limo at the airport. Not just any limo...a Hummer Stretch Limo. (We're Texans...that's how we roll.) After making a brief detour to a liquor store...beer and Patron shots anyone?...we headed to our hotel (above), New York/New York. It was a fun two and a half days punctuated by laughs, blackjack winnings, a Cirque show, good (though overpriced) food, and last but not least, a visit to Mandalay Bay to see the red carpet entrance of the "stars" of the AVN awards. Umm....the "A" stands for adult. Not sure what V & N are, but does that really matter? You know what I'm saying. That was, uh, interesting? Enlightening? Scary? Silicone-y? Probably all of that.
Anyways, it's good to be home again in the God fearin' state of Texas! Jack is in Seattle for the week, and I don't have a lot on the calendar, so it's been nice to tinker around the house. Meghan has had mid-terms all week and tomorrow she's done with school at 9:15 AM, so I think we are going to catch a movie before Claire and Anna get out of school. I'll let you know what we decided to see!
