The kids and I ventured to Las Vegas this past week by ourselves. Our main purpose in being there was to celebrate my brother and sister's tenth birthday. I was really glad that I went and braved the almost 9 hour drive all by myself. I don't know how often I'll do that again, but I am really glad I got to spend time with my family.Here are Ryan and Braeden. I can't believe how big they are. Braeden is super handsome especially with his braces. Ryan is a beautiful girl and they are so fun to be around. Great grandma and Kalli. Kalli just loved her great grandma. She always had a big smile for her and looked around the room until she could find her. I'm pretty sure great grandma felt the same way about her! Braeden and Ryan opening presents. A four generation picture. This was on the morning that I left. Kalli thoroughly enjoyed sitting in great grandma's grass watching Blake play. What a cutie.
