Rebecca and I went to Las Vegas last week with my parents. It was such a fun trip! And I loooovveeedddd being somewhere warmer. It was jacket weather, but so much nicer than it is in Idaho right now. We saw lots of fun things...lots of aquariums, This awesome show about aliens on the ceiling of this building on Freemont Street

New York New York!
Excalibur (Cinderella's house, as Rebecca called it)

The M&M store

Rebecca was so excited to see the lions, she talked about them all day until she finally got to see them. Too bad all they did was SLEEP! It was fun to see them though.

When we were here, Rebecca called, "Oh Cinderella...where are you???" She is so funny.

Fountain show at the Bellagio

The longest chocolate fountain! Awesome!

My dad carried Rebecca everywhere on his back...bless him! It was nice to not have to worry about her or try to keep track of her in the crowds. She did really well on this trip, I was so happy about that!
Here we are in Caesar's Palace...my favorite place in Vegas, I decided. Most of my pics inside casinos turned out pretty dark, too bad. There were some really neat places there though, it was fun to see them.

Rebecca's first carousel ride. She LOVED IT!!! And she cried when it was time to get off.

Our hotel was so nice, it had a kitchen in it, and Rebecca and grandpa had a good time lounging around watching cartoons.

Breakfast was delivered to our room every morning. Yum!

Rebecca and grandma at a cactus garden, very interesting!

We are so spoiled!! Thanks for the fun trip, mom and dad! Now it's back to the snow, ugh. And back to life at home. We missed Seth, and wish he could have been there with us. But, he is in school. Las Vegas is sure a crazy place with lots to do and see. It was a fun trip!

Here are the shirts I sewed hearts on for Rebecca for Valentine's Day...I love to sew, and I love holidays and making them fun. So now she can wear these all month. They turned out cute. And of course they are eating their fruit loop necklaces....a daily ritual lately....make necklace, watch sesame street.

The heart hairdo!

The most frustrating craft I've ever done. But it is DONE and in the end, it turned out ok.
