Viva Las Vegas!

We just had such a fun weekend. We caught one of those $29 flights out of Great Falls to Las Vegas. It was so much fun. We didn't do the tourist/the strip thing this time. We went down and spent the entire time with family. Tim's dad, sister, and three brothers all live in Vegas. It was so fun to spend time with them. Most of them hadn't met Kinsey yet and Grampa hadn't seen her in a few months.

Madison & Kinsey swimming:
It was such a nice and relaxing vacation. We swam all day in their pool, ate amazing food (I probably gained a ton of weight, but I'm not going to weigh myself to find out), and hung out with family. The weather was perfect. It was around 30*C the whole time (which is better than the 4 inches of snow we got here at home when we were gone). We were spoiled. With so many arms wanting to hold and play with Kinsey I wasn't even sure I had a baby. Well until she needed to eat or sleep...and for some reason no one wanted the diaper duty.
Vegas Baby!
Megan & Kinsey enjoying the "cool" evening:

Kinsey was amazing! Not a single cry the entire time. I was freaking out and had major anxiety about flying with a 9 mth old baby. But no worries. On the flights both there and back she slept from take-off till we were walking off the plane. Amazing eh? And even with the drive to and from Great Falls she slept and only woke while we were at the border. I worried for nothing. She's such a good traveller.
Okay so we didn't completely avoid the strip.

Mommy & Kinsey on the strip:
Vegas was a blast. It was so nice to see family. We miss them already. And Kinsey really misses all her cousins that played with her non-stop. We can't wait to go back (or to have them come visit us *hint*hint*).

FUN TRIP! We love Vegas - this totally makes me want to go back. I'm so glad Kinsey was so good for you - you were worried about the plane for nothing! :)

Looks like so much fun! I can't believe what a great girl she was on the plane! That would be my biggest worry too! Glad you guys had a great time!

You were so close to Utah! We could have had a big get-together!

I LOVE that quote you have on your header! It's so true how fast time goes by with the kiddos! I'm looking at your pictures of Kinsey and I can't believe how much she's grown already! She's too cute for words!
