Birthday wish comes true.

I picked up the boys today.  They have just spent the last week with my mom.   That's right, my mom took the boys for an entire week, and they all lived to tell the tale.  Even better, Ben and I had an amazing week together, without the children.

Ben and I started our week by meeting up with Chris and Monica in Las Vegas for a few days.  We have done Vegas many times, but these were the highlights.

When walking out of the Paris Casino, I saw some cupcakes in the Valet booth.  I asked them where they bought them.  They described in detail where I could find them, and then one of them asked me if I wanted one.  Umm...Yes.  It was so good.

 It wasn't even ruined by the fact that five minutes earlier, I had eaten this:

I pretty much ate desserts the entire time.  What happens in Vegas, right?

This is the first time we have ever taken a picture in front of the VEGAS sign.

After we took our pictures, we met this "Junior Reporter" from Fox News.  He was doing a story comparing Las Vegas to Atlantic City.  My moment to shine, I must say.  I didn't get to see the final product, but I don't care, I just love that I was interviewed.
Applying lipgloss before the interview.

Thanks Chris and Monica for another fabulous trip to Vegas.  It keeps getting better and better.  I am grateful we have moved on from the HoJo, but anywhere we stay, it will still be fun.  

It was an amazing trip, and I am so grateful to my mom for watching the boys.  It was the PERFECT birthday gift!
