What Happens in Vegas…

Will probably end up on our blog.

We ate (awesome food), drank (lots of water to combat the heat), and had a very merry time.

Everyone at the Bellagio

William and I had never been to Vegas other than the occasional pit stop on the way to/from Utah.  We were so excited to spend the weekend with the Reynolds---it had been nearly 6 months since we had seen them and we had a great time!

Julie and I got to hang out just girls (and the babies) while the men went to a fight downtown. It was great to catch up.

We had a pretty lazy weekend, though Steve and William did find some time to lift weights. William and I strength train together 3 times a week, and I really think it’s starting to pay off. You can tell how hard they’re working by all the grunting.

Exercising with Dad.

We didn’t get in as much exercise as usual, so we went hiking in Red Rock Canyon.

After naps, we went to The Strip.

It was practically Disneyland---though maybe not quite the “Happiest Place on Earth.”

Woody and Buzz

These 2 cute boys weren’t sure about each other at first (6 months is eternity to a one-year-old), but eventually warmed right up to each other. They were running and laughing,

No, No, No.

We were even lucky enough to have the Titeras join us for a night, to have all 3 Musketeers together again.

On the Bed

Thanks to the Reynolds hospitality, we were able to manage a pretty amazing get-away for around $150 (including dog-sitter and gas!).

Hope to make it back sometime soon!
