My trip to Las Vegas

I got to take a trip to Las Vegas last week.  Here is my travel companion:
We went to see my brother and his wife sealed in the Las Vegas Temple.  It was Tailgunner's first airplane ride, and probably his last for a while.  He did GREAT on the plane, though.  Here he is looking out the window at our plane. 


We stayed with my Aunt and Uncle the first night, where we tried to avoid their mean cat who just seemed to taunt my little Tailgunner.  They wanted to confront each other in the worst way!  Everywhere we went, the cat went.  And my baby boy wanted to get that cat!  Luckily, they were never allowed actual contact or my baby would have been scratched and the cat would have been kicked. (by me, haha)  We enjoyed swimming in their fabulous pool.
My Aunt very kindly dropped me off at the temple for the sealing the next day.  It was beautiful, and I'm so happy to have my lovely new sister in law!!!  She's the bees knees.
Aren't they cute?
Me and my bro-
The second night, after the sealing, we stayed in Bill's Gambling Hall and Casino.  Sounds classy, doesn't it?  :)  It actually had VERY  nice rooms.  Tailgunner and I shared a room with my niece and nephew so my brother could have a little "honeymoon" in another hotel.  Here is the night view from my window:


We ordered in dinner, and wound up getting a pizza the size of Texas.  It was awesome!!
The next day we did some shopping and checked into their hotel for the next night, the Mandalay Bay.  The big kids played on the beach there while us older folks walked around the hotel and looked at more shops.  I flew home that evening.  It was a great little vacation, with no one to worry about except for me and the babe.  The kiddos did great at home with my mom helping a bit, and daddy home in the evenings.
