Las Vegas, Baby!

Over President's Day weekend we headed down to Vegas to meet up with Mimi and Grandpa. Poor Eleanor had been so excited for the trip and got sick the day before we left. She was pretty miserable on the drive down and the first day we were down there.  She slept the entire way down (and of course Amelia didn't sleep a bit!) she also slept most of the first day. Even though she wasn't feeling too swell, both she and Amelia had a great time seeing Mimi and Grandpa and spending the day in their hotel room. Mimi wasn't feeling to great either so it was actually kind of nice just taking the day easy. They girls got to spend the night with Mimi and Grandpa. I guess Amelia cried a little bit at night but in the morning she woke up and said, "I did it. I can spend the night!". My kids are so lucky to have such great grandparents!

Of course a trip to Vegas wouldn't be complete without a visit to a buffet for crab. John and I had our fair share of crab and this time Eleanor enjoyed the clams more then crab. That girl has got quite the fine palate! 

Since our last visit to Vegas, Eleanor has been talking about winning more stuffed animals at the Fun Dome in Excalibur. This time she was pretty thrilled with the three $100.00 dollar bills she bought with her tickets. She's determined to buy lots of diamonds and crystals with her winnings.

Overall we had a great weekend. It's always nice getting out of the cold and enjoying a little vacation with family.
