Vegas Baby

Last weekend we took a last minute trip to Vegas (or Begas as E calls it) to visit my sister in law and her family. It was a great little break from reality and so much fun spending time with our family.
Tasha was ready as soon as I opened the suitcase. If only she knew then that it meant her spending 4 hours in the dreaded carseat.

We visited the Hoover Dam where the "dam" jokes never got old. We wanted to get a treat but the "dam" ice cream was a rip off.

The M&M factory was a hit with the kids. Although Ela could go anywhere with her cousins and have a blast she loves them so much.

The mermaid in the aquarium at Silverton was by far the biggest hit. The kids were mesmorized and anytime we asked them what they wanted to do they'd answer "see the mermaid!" Even Tasha got in on the fun and put her little hands on the glass to say hi.

No trip to Vegas would be complete without a visit to Santa Claus. Luckily he was visiting his home at The Bass Pro Shops. Ela told him she didn't know what she wanted for Christmas but Tasha told him she wanted off of his lap!

That is funny that Tasha did not like Santa. And I liked the "dam" joke. Good job keeping up on the blog, I am slacking.
