Las Vegas here we come!!!

Last weekend my parents took me and my sister and my three sister in laws on a long weekend to Las Vegas. We had so much fun. The night before we left Rob and I, my parents, Jamie and Dave, and some good friends from our ward, Natalie and Jason went to see the comedian Brian Regan. For those of you who don't know who he is you need to rent something or listen to him on itunes. He is hilarious. The good thing about him is that he is clean. We had a great night.
We headed off the next morning to Vegas where we enjoyed eating a lot, sleeping in, talking a lot, swimming, shopping and just hanging out. It was so nice to spend time with the sister in laws. We don't get to see them that much so we had a great time. Thank you mom and dad for a great weekend. We can't wait for next year:) Also I have to give a shout out to my in laws Roy and Evelyn for watching my kids for the weekend. Robert was in NYC for work so they stepped in to help out. They even took them to Knotts one day. They love spending time with you!!!

This was our first attempt at Bingo in Vegas. We actually had no idea what we were doing. It is more complicated than you may think. Aimee actually ended up winning $43.00. Pretty exciting.
Nielsens frozen custard YUMMY!!!!
The obligatory trip to the strip, with a yummy stop at the Paris for some good crepes!!
An afternoon at the spa.

Aimee and I snuck out for a late night session of Bingo. We just knew that we were going to win this time. Wrong!!! Maybe next year, it was fun anyway.
Shana really hoping for a win!!! Maybe next year!!

Father Son Campout

On Mother's Day weekend Rob and the boys went on their annual Father Son Campout and they had a great time. So Bekah and I enjoyed a night of shopping. I even told her she could pick anywhere she wanted to go for dinner and she said she would rather go pick a box of cereal to eat for dinner. I love that girl!!! Then in the morning we went to McDonalds and got our nails done. We had a great time while they enjoyed playing with friends and the campfire and of course S'mores. They loved sleeping in the tent.

This is Luke's head after falling against a tree. I teased Rob that a father's supervision is very different than a mom's supervision, but at least they all came back in one piece right?

Mother's Day

I had a great Mother's Day this year. I had breakfast in bed for the first time ever, even though I had to send out a strong hint, it still was great. Rob fixed me one of his famous egg sandwiches which I love with yummy hot cocoa that the kids made. Then they gave me their cards they made me. After church we headed to my mom's where Rob's parents and Jamie and her family came. It is nice to have both parents so close so we can celebrate it together. We had yummy food and good visiting. As I was at my parents last night I realized how blessed I am to have a mom like I do. She has taught me so much throughout my life and has been such an example of love and compassion. I am also blessed to have such an awesome mother-in-law. A lot of people can't say that but I love her so much. She is one of my closest friends and Rob and I feel so blessed to have our families so close and even better we all get along.

This is me and Bekah at the 2nd grade Mother's Day tea party where they sang to us. It took a lot of convincing to let Bekah know that we didn't have to drink the tea and it was ok to have water. She was very worried.

This is Tanner's card he made for me at school. If you notice the last line he says I love him like a pet. What is funny is that he knows that I don't really like pets, even though we have one. Is he trying to tell me something? Cute!!

I had to throw this picture in of my mother in law. They left last night before I got a picture. This is the night they got their mission call. They are great examples of service to us.
