Hey baby, let's go to Vegas




We just got back from a weekend trip to Las Vegas.

It was so fun to stay at our free hotel in our free upgrade to a suite with our complimentary coconut lime verbana lotion from Bath and Body Works and our projector screen putting movies on the wall with the little patterns in the wall paper only causing confusion some of the time and the indoor rodeo arena at our hotel watching sessions of the Miss Rodeo America 2009 contest (Good luck Renae Cowley, Miss Rodeo Utah) and long naps for Johnny boy and the aquarium and the friendly scuba diver feeding the fish that waved to us and going to see the Blue Man group for student discount ticket prices sitting in the second row getting hit by mushed banana and grateful for the plastic poncho provided to protect from said banana and buying bargain $1 items at Target including a rolling pin for my kitchen while the boys went to a magic comedy show and spending $200 in free gift cards at Bass Pro Shop we earned for sitting through 90 minutes of time share presentation and walking through the M&M store while we waited for Millie and Micah to finish their 180 minutes of time share presentation and eating In-N-Out with Grandma Laura Lee and watching The Office on the drive home and only spending $22.58 to fill up the car with gasoline.

And finally, taking free family pictures with Santa. This was a fantastic trip.

I swear you should write a book on how to get free stuff! You guys are amazing! I heard it was a fun time. Johnny looked like he handled Santa well. We're going to see Santa next weekend it will be fun to see how the girlies react.
