Las Vegas - Day 4

Sorry, folks.  I tried to post last night......but blogger was not cooperating.

So, here it is!

We stayed an extra night. 

First........the kiddos enjoyed one last look from the balcony.

And, I enjoyed them enjoying one last look because I no longer had to see my kids on a slab of concrete with a sheet of glass between them and 28 stories up.

We checked out, met Blake after his last conference, and hooked up with our neighbors from San Diego (who were in town for entirely different reasons) and relaxed at the pool a bit.

The Starnes 3 + Bella and Jessie.

Jessie and Lainey.

Eddie and Blake took the kids to the waterfall while Dawn and I chatted and read our books.

Dawn and me.  So crazy we were in Vegas at the same time!

We headed in the opposite direction and checked in at the Stratosphere.  Kids were dying to go to the top.

Blake and I giggled at the 'amenities' list via room service.

We spent some time at the pool.  Laine wasted no time jumping in.

We headed back to the room to dress for dinner and a walk around the "top of Vegas".

Our children are currently obsessed with Apple products.  I can't wait to get a Mac (one day).

Still not getting an Iphone, so don't say it! (Shannon)

Shopped a bit.  I don't know why Carter knew to put on the miserable face in this photo.  I swear he's secretly watched the movie somewhere.  He talks about The Hangover entirely too much.

Dorkiest part of Vegas?  Pressed pennies.  Our fave!

To the top we go!

100 + stories.  Barf.

Watched someone do the jump.......kind of like bungee, I suppose......but they lower you down at the bottom.

Lainey wanted to do this one.

Carter debated on whether or not to do Insanity.........and eventually told me that he wouldn't because it made me so scared.  Wondering now if he was a bit scared, too.  :)


"Wet's see if I'm tall enough, Mom."

She's 3 years old.

Spectacular views.

Dinner, Icees, a little shopping and back to the room.

Very pleased with this hotel.  Great rates, clean rooms and nice decor.  We ended up on the top floor again.....24 up.....with a view......but no balcony!

Blake has the kids downstairs at Krispie Kreme while I pack up. 

Back to beautiful San Diego! 

Vegas recap coming next and I'll soon catch up on you guys! 

Been missing my bloggies.

Awesome! No thanks on the bungee thing for me.
Love the beer in Blake's hand while the kids are pressing their pennies.
You know Brad is obsessed with pressed pennies!

Insanity was not there when I went to the Stratosphere. That is just madness. I would throw up for sure. Krispy Kreme...yummy!

That ride just gave me a heart attack just looking at it.

I'm not a fraidy cat about heights but when you put it that, way, I might be a little skiddish too. It is so fun that y'all could hookup with friends while on vaca.

I can totally see why you stayed an extra day! Looks like it was worth it.
