our most exceptional trip to Vegas

We spent our Memorial Day weekend in Vegas with my family. The main reason we went is because my brother Braeden was receiving the priesthood and Joe wanted to participate in his ordination. The first day we took our kids to the water park that I love there. You can't beat that it's free and fun! The kids had a blast. We then tried to go to Ethel M Chocolates factory, a place I loved as a kid. Unfortunately they had no workers in the factory, but the bright side is we still got our free chocolate. You will see the above pictures of what an empty factory looks like. I fell madly in love with the chocolate covered worms, their little eyes spoke to me. The second day Joe, Blake, Braeden and my dad went golfing while all the girls had pedicures and went shopping.
I also pretty much ate my way through Vegas, the only way to do it. We really only ate at home on Sunday. I love eating out and it was so nice to eat at the places I love that I can't get here in ABQ.
Overall we had such a great time and on our way home Joe and I were wishing we had stayed one more day. But then Joe bought ice cream cones in the middle of nowhere NM and we quickly got over our sadness.
Thank you to my family in Vegas for hosting us, we had such a great time!

So fun! Glad that you had warm, sunny weather! We had rain, and even a little snow for Memorial Day!
