You’re going there again???

14 Sep

***I wrote this post a week and a half ago and had the best of intentions of telling you where we’d be staying, what we had planned, and some of my favourite things about Vegas.  But alas, my days have been so jammed and crammed full, that there truly wasn’t the time to do this…  So hopefully I’ll do a recap or two when I get back, because I certainly love talking about the place ;)  So until then, here’s a, shall we say, mini-post…


Now where was I…  oh, ya – Vegas! 

Why Vegas, you ask?

Vegas is one of my favourite places in the world, there’s something about the hustle and bustle and great times being had, that just makes me feel so comfortable. And that’s why Todd and I have had 6 trips there in the past 8.5 years.  Every time we plan a trip somewhere else (ok, not every time), we seem to say, “but we could do all of that in Vegas, and it would be cheaper!”  And that’s what happened this time, and how road trip to Washington D.C. turned into a trip to Vegas for a week.

Go ahead, try to name something that you want to do in another destination, and I bet you can do it in Vegas!  And at nearly any time of day or night! 

The previous two trips to Vegas each left us with the feeling that it would be the last time we’d be there for a long time (once our to-be-yet-born children were older and we could go on vacation without them), but each time the possibility to go again crept up, we jumped at it.

This truly will be the last time we’ll be going to Vegas (or anywhere else for that matter, lol) for a long time as I’ll be 23 weeks pregnant, and I don’t care what anyone says – Vegas is not for family time.  This will also be the first time in three trips that we’ll be going solo!  Our first two trips were on our own, the next two with family and the last one was with friends.  It’s nice to have extra people to do things with, but there’s certainly something to be said for just deciding between the two of you what you want to do (and at what crazy time you want to do it).

So this year’s trip…

…will now be written about once home – we leave for our Park and Fly in just a few hours!
