So needless to say, Charles and I could use a little "mommy & daddy" time to ourselves. My soon-to-be in-laws was nice enough to pay for our airfare to Vegas and my parents were nice enough to watch JC while we were gone. We really could have gone and stayed in a hotel down the street because it was nice to just relax and not be constantly worried about someone else. But Vegas is nice too. And JC did great! I almost kind of wish he would have missed us a LITTLE bit more than he seems to have. No problems at all. No late night phone calls begging us to come home.
We went to Vegas with two other couples that we know from work (I used to work with two of them and Charles currently works with them). We stayed at The Venetian which was AH-MAZING! So beautiful. Probably the nicest hotel room I've ever stayed in; and we were staying in their cheapest room! We flew Allegiant, and I can say that I would NOT recommend them! Super cheap airfare but the ordeal that we went through to get home was inexcusable. If you follow me on twitter then you know that I was really about to punch someone in the face. Kind of put a sour end to our trip. But all in all, the trip was a lot of fun and it was nice to have some grown up time. Plus, it doesn't hurt that public drinking isn't only legal, it's encouraged.
just a taste of how beautiful our hotel was

do NOT waste your time at the pirate show in front of treasure island
first time i drank a rockstar vodka in a loooooooooong time. they both taste so horrible, they kind of cancel each other out.
Charles's mom is already trying to get us to go to Vegas again next month! I think we will have to pass for now because our bank account is not very happy with us right now. But it was great to get away, even if it was just for the weekend.
