Viva Las Vegas

As Miss Lily disclosed in a previous post, Ryan and I spent our first long weekend away from our baby.  We headed out west, to Las Vegas, to celebrate our 30th birthday year with our good friends Lesley and Tyler. 

We flew in late Thursday night after an almost disastrous flight delay, getting to the hotel around midnight Vegas time. We stayed at the Wynn (very nice!), briefly explored the casino, and crashed for the night.  (Hello people, I know we are lame, but it was after 3 am CST when I finally got to bed…I haven’t seen that time “socially” since college!)


Friday we walked the entire Strip, gawking at the craziness of Vegas and the outrageous hotels, and did a little shopping.

Friday night, we got fancy, went to the show ‘Blue Man Group’ and then had a yummy dinner in the Bellagio.

Saturday the group was up bright and early and headed to Lagasse Stadium inside the Palazzo Hotel with a reserved space to watch the KSU/KU game.  Ryan and Tyler’s fraternity brother, Matt, and his wife Sara met us for the game.  GO STATE!

We played some blackjack, slots, etc and most of us broke even with our gambling funds.

Every time Lesley and I would turn around the boys would be on their phones.  Every single time.  Vacation or not, some things never change.


We have a fantastic weekend getaway and feel so lucky to have spent it with such great friends!  Who’s up for Vegas 2010!?!?!
