Vegas Vacation!

Brooke and Jessie were going to be competing at Cinderella State in Vegas but we decided at the last minute not to. We had everything all planned to leave for the week so went to Vegas for a family vacation instead. It turned out to be one of our funnest vacations with just us. We traded one of our time shares and stayed at a really nice condo that had a full kitchen in it. I know my mom probably won't believe this but I get so sick of eating out on vacations so it was nice to be able to cook all our meals in the condo and just spend hours in the pool. Thanks to Brent's brother Derek and his wife Rhiannon, we got to go to some really cool stuff. They seem to have connections to no end and we love it. One night they got us comped front row tickets to the Country Music Superstars Tribute. They watched Braden and Kaylee Nicole and we took Brooke and Jessie with us. If I can figure how to upload from my phone I will post those pics. Then they got us comped tickets to the big top circus. It was totally the real deal. I think I had the most fun. I have never been and it was amazing. I'm telling you it was totally Dumbo! Sorry the pics are backwards but enjoy!The closing ceremony.

The tigers.
I'm not sure what these were called but they were very cool. Looked so scary to me but they never missed.
Just like on Dumbo!
I think it would be kinda fun to be one of the lady's that get to ride the elephants.
More of the elephants.

Brent TRYING to get a picture of me and the kids.
Still trying...I think we just had to call that first one good.
The tight rope walkers.
They had lots of horses doing all kinds of synchronized running. Then they all left but the white horse and they danced and waltzed. Very cool to watch.
The opening ceremony. Brookie leaned over to me and said there were so many things to watch she didn't know which one to look at and she didn't want to miss anything. I totally felt the same way. They had so much going on all at the same time. It was amazing.
Jessie learned to blow a bubble on this trip! This is one of her first attempts. By day 4 she was blowing big old bubbles that stuck all over her face!
Kaylee Nicole looking as cute as can be!

Of course we stayed at a place with a pool...I think we spent the majority of our time there.
Brookie (please notice that the goggles match the bathing suit..believe me...big issue)
Believe it or not...Kaylee Nicole LOVES this.
