We went down to Vegas on Friday night and had dinner with my parents who were down there for one of Linzi's races! She is freakin good, although sadly, I haven't been able to see her race yet! Anyway, we stayed at the Sahara our first night because it was cheap.. haha.. well cheap prices=cheap rooms :) probably enough said! It was crappy.. I dont really recommend stayin there to anyone! Then Saturday was the all day tournament! Lucky for me, most of the wives come so I have fun hanging out with them! Liz, Karla, and I kept each other company through out the day! The boys ended up not doing so well, and were done by about 7 that night! (I didn't mind) So we went back to our room.. Thank goodness though that we ended up reserving the Riveria hotel for Saturday night. The Riveria was actually a really nice room.. SO much better than Sahara. That was the first time for me staying at either hotel. That night we went out to the Planet Hollywood Casino and ate at PF Changs which is one of Adam & I's favorite places to eat! It was a fun night out with everyone! I am so glad that everyone on the team gets along well and we can all hang out together. Sunday we spend most of the day shopping and then had dinner at the Pink Taco at the Hard Rock Casino- which was really really good! I'll defintiely be going back there next time I'm down!
I have more pictures which you can check out on Facebook! All in all it was a fun trip! :)
I love this little boy... (He's little at heart!) :)
We didn't do a whole lot when were up there. We mostly lounged around and relaxed and then went for a little hike and a drive to look at the leaves!
Above is Tash me and Karalee! It's so awesome that we are able to all keep in touch and see each other often! I have known these girls since I was little and now we are all on crazy adventures!
Tasha has been married for 2 years now and is expecting her first baby in December!
Karalee just recently finished serving a mission for the church in Brazil! She is amazing!
Carrie has the cutest (almost) 3 year old girl named Lilly who is adorable!
Sarah (missing the dinner I attended) but she is getting married in less than a month!!
Chelsey & Liz . I miss them and love them! :) They both moved away from St. George! Luckily I see Liz quite often, thank goodness! But Chels I do not see enough!!!
Here are some more cute pictures of us at dinner w/Tasha's belly! :)
It's so crazy that not too long ago we were all having sleepovers talking about our 8th grade crushes, going to high school games and dances together, and playing summer night games in Diamond Valley!! And now.. we are all married, old, have or having children, and going after our careers! Life has certainly changed for us all, but not our forever friendship and bonds we all share!
I am so tired today!
Is it Friday yet? You would think my 4 day work week would be going by so quickly, but it's not :( Yay for tomorrow being Friday!
So this last weekend I spent in Pine Valley for Labor Day weekend. My dad has nominated this weekend as our 'family reunion'. As of right now our family consists of dad, mom, amanda, adam, & taylor. . so it was small reunion :) but it will someday grow and grow! Pine Valley is a beautiful place! We were able to enjoy a relaxing weekend up there. Friday and Saturday we didn't do a whole lot and just enjoyed our company. Sunday Adam make homemade pizza's for dinner and everyone loved them! Then I kept begging my dad to let me have a fire in the backyard and make s'mores (he bought all the stuff for s'mores anyways) well unfortunately it was really windy that day so my dad said no.. but the great dad and adam the great husband that they are brough out my dad's little fire torche thing (kind of looks like a mini bbq-pictures will post soon) and had that in the front yard. We all sat around it w/our chairs and enjoyed good s'mores, starbursts, and other random treats we could melt. It was delicious! :) Monday was more of a clean up - pack up day and we came hom e in the afternoon! We did find a cool hiking trail that we all want to take one of these days! It's call the Forsyth Canyon Trail - we haven't ever been, but it looks fun! I can't believe Labor Day has already passed and gone.. time is going by so quickly for me! I am ready for fall time though, so I guess it can go by fast right now!
( I need a signature at the end of my posts... suggestions?)
-Liz & I right before the race -Running.. Running!
The race was a lot of fun! My mom even ran out and jogged w/Liz and I for a few seconds to encourage us! She is crazy! Liz really helped me too and kept pushing me forward! Thank goodness for her! It was so fun, and hopefully we will get to do a couple more this fall!
