9

Well, Trent and I have been married 9 years today. Sheesh. We are getting old. If you want to see my post from last year click here. Its a little more sentimental and stuff. I don't feel like doing that this time. As most of you know we celebrated my birthday and our anniversary in St. George kidless. It was awesome.
As soon as we dropped Paige and Morgan off Trent and I could feel our vacation start. Even something as simple as driving is so much easier without our crew.
We ran in the mornings. I know I look dumb. I felt like an Oompa Loompa from Willy Wonka, but it kept me warm. 30 degrees in St. George isn't right. And don't you love the drastic difference between our clothes of choice? And just for the record I was able to run a total of 5 miles over the weekend. A HUGE improvement from before which was nothing at all. I still have pain, but it isn't to the point where I want to chop my leg off. Although I still can't run hills. That does make me want to chop off my leg.

We got to enjoy the hot tub down there. It was actually really nice with the cold weather. Although, still bugged that the water ruined yet another one of my swimsuits. Why don't I learn to rinse my suits after I get out?
VEGAS
We went to Vegas to see the Newlyweds and to check out there new pad. It was really fun to be guests at Jake's (& now Candice's!!!) place. It was great to have the roles reversed!
One of the best things I learned over the weekend was that they are going to be putting a Max Brenner in Caesar's Palace!!! For those that have no idea what I am talking about check out my New York post here & here. Now I have another reason to go back to Vegas!

We had to get a pic to document our night out. Oh and I got to see a Jimmy Choo shoe in real life. I have no idea why anyone would want to spend that much on a pair of shoes. I didn't even see a cute pair either. Not that I think any heels are that cute...

Trent had the best steak he has ever tasted that night in Vegas. We walked the strip forever to find a place suitable for Trent. Yes, I said Trent. I know everyone thinks I am the picky one, but I always argue Trent is worse than me!

The fountains. It was so amazing to watch. Very Oceans 11. Wouldn't that really be something if Brad Pitt, George Clooney, or Matt Damon were standing next to us? Although, both Candice and I would agree that we had 2 much better guys with us!

And to end the post with my favorite phrase from the weekend, "We're outta here!"

9 years? Really? Where has the time gone? Glad you guys were able to get away without the kids for awhile. Did you feel like better parents when you came back? :)

Happy anniversary! You guys really are old! Nine years?! Congrats! Looks like it was a great trip. And I don't think any of us needed convincing that Trent is more picky than you. Hello?

Happy Anniversary! It looks like you had a very fun trip. So funny when we stayed at Caesar's Palace last year I thought the same thing about Jimmy Choo's! B
