E travels to Vegas a lot for work. So when he mentioned a couple of months ago that he'd have a trip at the end of April, and would I like to extend it to include a weekend, to make it a mini vacation, I said yes. Yes yes yes!
As our weekend approached we got more and more excited. We were leaving cold rain/snow at home and heading to sunny Las Vegas. I was most excited about the food, E was most excited about taking James on a jet, and I think the kiddos were most excited about the pool.
So excited that nobody napped the first day (much to our dismay). We just had to check out the pool!
I'm actually not a huge fan of Vegas (the crowds, the lack of natural places, the smoke... I could go on and on), but Bellagio is beautiful. So much nicer than all the other themed hotels. Waiting for the fountain show actually reminded me quite a bit of visiting the lake district in Italy on our honeymoon.
(side note: check out those long curls!)
