Vegas Vecation!

We made a decision at the last minute to head to Vegas! It was pretty incredible in Vegas. Neither of us had been there before and this was our first time away from the kids since our adoptions 2 years ago. I must admit I struggled with leaving them behind but know we needed the time away together. I am so fortunate to have such a wonderful friend that took all 3 kids for the 5 days we were away.

My favourite site was this one from the strip in front of Caesars Palace! I found it beautiful, peaceful looking and to top it off there was an amazing fountain show every 1/2 hour.

We stayed at the Flamingo which was pretty much in the middle of the strip. We found the hotel a bit too old for our liking but now we know where we wont be staying next time. The good thing was we rarely spent any time in our room because there was so much to see and do in Vegas.

We made it a point to go the the M&M's Factory just so we could get the kiddo's some special treats. The place was huge, they had 4 floors of stuff! The M&M's were $11.99us per lb. We passed on those but did pick up some cute containers with M&M's for the kids.

This is a picture of the happy couple on their way up the many levels of the Venetian. The weather was great (34c), and we had an awesome time! We hope to go back again with the kids.....
