VEGAS BABY! (Finally)

Ok, so I am a big time blog slacker, but we all know that! Its just been so hard to make time to post the last couple of weeks. Work has been busy and Weve been busy at home. When Hailey sleeps, mommy is doing stuff around the house and when shes awake, theres no time for blogging, thats for sure.

(In my defense, I started this post awhile back and couldn't get my pictures to load... AND I have been unable to post from work on top of that. Not that I should be posting "on the job" but sometimes I will write my posts at home and post them from work because the pictures load much faster!)

Ok, on to the good stuff!

Whats this blog post about, you ask?

Well Craigs grandma and Haileys beloved GG turned 80 and we made the LOOOOOONG drive to Henderson, NV which is a hop, skip and a jump from VEGAS BABY!

We drove 10 hours (yes, 10 HOURS) to Henderson to celebrate GGs 80th and spend some time with the fam. We had an amazing time. Ive flown into Vegas twice, but Ive been whisked away upon arrival to Grandma and Grandpas and/or Dumont Dunes. This time I was bound and determined to actually SEE Vegas in between the festivities and family time! This was obviously Haileys first trip too we (yes *we*) almost went last year, but thats a whole other story!

We stayed at the Fiesta Hotel in Henderson, with the rest of the family. There was a pool, a Starbucks, a bar what more could you want? Nice place for the price too!

We hung out by the pool

Drove to Vegas for the day

 AND got to see lions at the MGM!

Celebrated GG turning 80

And back to Vegas for more sightseeing!

It was a LONG trip for such a short time, but I have to say it was definitely worth it. We had so much fun spending time with the family that we don’t get to see as much as we would like.

***SOOOO sorry for the delay on posting this amazing trip!***
