Leaving Las Vegas

OhCountess and I are sitting here in the airport, sucking up the free wi-fi. We had a fun trip, but I think both of us are tired and ready to go home. Besides, we miss the kids. Its weird, you get excited to spend a little quality Mom and Dad time away from the kids, but it doesn't take too long before you start to really miss them.

No idea why, but they got use to the airport 3 hours before our flight leaves. Ugg. So very tired.

Last night, we saw the Wayne Brady show at the Venetian. That is one huge hotel. And the show? It was REALLY funny. He's a very talented man. We would definitely recommend this to anyone.

We will be home in a few hours. Ready for an early bed time. See ya soon!

Hope you and the Mrs. had a lot of fun out there. I took care of making sure the Twins stayed in first place yesterday. 5-0 with me in attendance. WOOOHOOO!

Hope you guys had a good time!!! It's always nice to come home after a getaway, to see those little smiling faces that missed you so much.

I love Vegas. Never win, and am always convinced I'll make a killing at the airport slots while waiting for my flight. Your food pictures are killing me! Especially the one of the cheesecake.

ENAR - Thanks for keeping the Twins going. It looks like we need you to head up soon. We had fun.

Nap Warden - We had a great time!

dmarks - Wayne Brady's Las Vegas show is all improve like the show. It was hilarious!

tanya - It was nice to get home. The hugs are always the best. But getting away is also fun. After a while, you begin to really cherish the Mom and Dad time.

heather - I love Vegas. I made a little money in the airport playing online poker. Gotta love the free wi-fi. The poker tournaments at the Stratosphere were really fun and easy. Check out my poker blog to see how much fun. The food there is great. I already miss the food.

Sandy - The Venetian was beautiful! We stayed at Harrah's. Not beautiful but cheaper and centrally located. The trip home was very safe and ended with us being exhausted in our own home. Happy hugs are a great welcome home!

I followed your vacation with great interest...

The Mother of Five and I have NEVER taken a trip out of Minnesota.

This year is our 15th, and I have been setting some $$ aside for a Anniversary Trip...

I have been trying to decide between Las Vegas, New York, or a short Cruise...

I'm thinking Las Vegas is going to win out.. But who knows!

Thanks for the updates!

David.

David - Vegas is a great Mom and Dad weekend getaway. Lots of great restaurants and things to see and do. I love to play poker but believe it or not, I'm not much of a gambler.

When you there, you can drive or take a tour out of Hoover Dam...well worth the trip!

Basically, there is lots to see and do and who knows, you might get lucky and make a little.
