Tom and I stole a few days away in Las Vegas over the weekend! He had to go for a conference for work so I bought a ticket and went out while my Mother in law and our niece Laura stayed at the house and watched the boys for us.
It's amazing how much you take for granted before you have kids! The flight there was so nice and peaceful. I didn't have to entertain or feed anyone. I actually read an entire book of about 800 pages or so! I enjoyed just relaxing in the hotel room. We really enjoyed going out for meals like we used to. We got to sit and talk and really "dine". That's something you never to get to with the kiddos!
Tom had quite a bit of free time while we there so we got to lounge by the pool which was beautiful. We got all the way down to the Stratosphere and rode the Bigshot on top of the tower. We actually bought the picture that they took of us because we both look SOOOO funny (especially Tom) :)! We had some amazing meals and did a little gambling. Tom played black jack for the fist time and actually won a little bit! It was so nice to be adults again for a little while! We also got the chance to miss the boys! Everytime we saw a baby we realized how much we missed Tyler and whenever we saw something that Zac would have liked, we realized how much we missed him!
Grandma survived the experience and told me that she realizes once again how much I have to do in a day! It's nice to be truly appreciated for all that you do! And we are so thankful to her and to Laura as well for giving us this opportunity.
