So this is really REALLY old news and long over due.
For our 4th anniversary We went to Vegas our anniversary is on the 23rd of Sep. We went that weekend with some friends of ours, who actually invited us to go with them. They were also going for their anniversary which is the 29th. Nikki and Kade Gardner.
We stayed at the South Point Hotel and was a way nice hotel.
We went to the temple, went shopping, walked the strip, which was pretty crazy, ate dinner at all the fine dining haha, gambled , with the hotels money of course, and rode on the New York New York ride which was also crazy...I was freakin out. I am so afraid of heights and this roller coaster is way high up there, But it was well worth it. I had lost my voice so pretty much anything I said was a big a joke. Kade had fun making fun of me haha not hard to do. There was this coctail lady who would yell 'Coctails's", unfort we never got to hear it but Nikki and Kade did. Kade did a pretty good job memicking her, it was awesome.... The temple was so beautiful. I'm glad we were able to go.
Brooklyn got to stay with Grandma and Grandpa Alder in La Verkin while we were gone. She did fairly well but not great. I think she wasn't feeling her best and she doesn't get to see grandma and grandpa much so it was different for her. She missed her momma and dadda too. She was so happy to see us when we got home she wouldn't let anyone hold her for a couple of weeks. she was scared of everyone and didn't do so well at the babysitters house. Poor girl thought we'd never come get her or leave her with complete strangers. Here are some pictures of the trip.

Love the update! I actually like the strip (minus some of the smells and the pamphlets). Looks like fun and I'm glad you were able to go!
