Vegas baby!

Every year a group of us goes down to Vegas for Valentine's weekend. Jared and I seem to go about every other year. Last year I was pregnant and my morning sickness really started getting bad the week of Valentines so Jared and I decided not to go. I didn't think that we would be going this year since we have a 4 month old, but we have decided that we really need to get away and so Vegas here we come! Jason and Tawnie will be bringing Tyler, who is only two months old, so we won't be alone. The recent snow storms have only made me more excited for our vacation. This year we will be waiting until the weekend following Valentines to see if we can miss some of the crowds that show up ever year to get married in Vegas on Valentine's. And let me tell you, the people that go to Vegas on Valentine's Day to get married...they are some high class people. I mean really, what is more romantic than that? They do make for some interesting people watching though so I can't complain too much. In honor of our upcoming trip, here are some pictures from our 2004 and 2006 trip.

Jared's toes. He's probably going to make me take this picture down once he sees it so enjoy it while you can. He and Kendal fell asleep so we painted their nails...
and Kim did Kendal's make-up. Again, I may be forced to take this picture down so enjoy it while you can.

Jason trying so hard to stay awake since he know's what just happend to Jared and Kendal.

I owe a special thanks to Kristi. She called a couple of weeks ago to see if she could come visit for the weekend and keep the kids while Jared went out on a date. Even though she had a horrible time (Brynlie screamed most of the time) she has agreed to come back next month so that we can go to Vegas. Of course, she told me that if we hadn't planned to take Brynlie she would have said no. And another thanks to Vince and Meagan for agreeing to help out too. They kept the kids for us last time we went, and almost kept them for us last year too, before we decided not to go.

How exciting that you get to go this year! I love the pictures of the make up and painted toenails, I'm glad that I saw them before you were forced to take them down! I'm excited to hear about your trip.
