Weekend Getaway

My husband and I went on a weekend getaway to Las Vegas this weekend to celebrate my Birthday. I know, husband of the year award, right?!! Not every year is like this believe me! With baby turning one it gave us another thing to celebrate…making it through the tough year of having a baby. It has been a blur for both of us. We have been so crazy busy trying to adjust to all the responsibilities that comes with juggling four kiddos. This vaca away from the kids was exactly what we both needed to recharge and reconnect.

I had every intention of getting some cool night shots of the strip in Vegas, but it was hard carrying around my camera at night. So I’ll post the few that I took. The New York, New York Hotel taken through my car window (thus the glass glare)…

Pillars and architecture of Caesar’s Palace…

Our hotel room at night. We stayed at the MGM Grand Hotel.

If you ever go to Las Vegas you MUST eat at Serendipity and you MUST try their mint frozen hot chocolate! A-mazing!

Me, driving in a lime green Lamborghini! Hubby had a trade with a guy that owned a luxury car rental place so we took one out for the day. We drove out to Red Rock Canyon with the top down. I can’t tell you how much fun we had driving that car! I was a little embarrassed getting in and out of it, however. People were pointing and staring/taking photos. Got a glimpse of what it must feel like to be famous…haha. I didn’t like it AT ALL!

We set the camera on the rocks and tried some interval shots. Our fav one was of me trying to get to the car quick before the shots fired. I call it my “16 Candles Moment”…you know, Molly Ringwald walking out of the church to her man standing by a sports car…haha! We are dorks…

We had a hard time driving the speed limit…

We also attended the Garth Brooks concert and the KÀ Cirque du Soleil show. Both were absolutely incredible! It was Garth’s last weekend to perform in Vegas, so we were glad we got to see his show. Probably the best concert we’ve been to! It was just him and his guitar. No special effects or background hoopla. He told stories about the influences in music in his life and sang songs from every decade since the ’60’s, plus all his greats. We really got a sense of who he is and the raw and rare talent that he truly has. He is a music legend. He still holds the record for best selling solo artist of the 20th century. Overtakes Elvis even!
