Road Trip

I had a fabulous weekend with a couple of fabulous ladies. It was a much needed trip for all three of us and we soaked up every relaxing, fun minute of it. Of course the first stop is always In & Out.

Lindsay and Alyssa didn't really want to eat at In & Out. I told them where they could go......as in another restaurant. But in the end they decided to join me. After this meal the motto of our trip was formed. "Everyone does whatever they want." ( and I love the glow of Alyssa's white teeth.)
I certainly enjoyed my meal and it is very apparent why I was the 'fat' one of the group. I just love me some good food!
The next day we headed down to Vegas. We are such party girls that we immediately went.....SHOPPING!

As I already said H & M was a huge hit. It was after this store that I made another rule for myself. Add up your purchases before you get to the register so you don't go into cardiac arrest when cashier tells you the total...

We decided to try the strip. I decided I am not a huge fan, just not my idea of fun. But we did get a pic in front of the famous sign! (Which Lindsay was NOT to happy about.)

We did not get lucky on the slots. Bummer. I was hoping for the same return as the last time I gambled. Oh well.

The next day we woke up late and did nothing for a while. It was heavenly. We did a little more shopping and then Alyssa went to the Temple and Lindsay and I had a great Saturday night girl date, which started with a pedicure.

Yep. While Alyssa was at the Temple I was getting pampered while reading some very uplifting words. Oh well. Linds and I enjoyed our date with some delicious food at not 1, but 2 restaurants. Thats right. One place for the food, the next for the dessert. If you are going to eat, you might as well do it right.
The rest of the time we just hung out at the house. It was heavenly.

We were all trying to hide our fat, which I was the only one that actually had a real problem with that. But we did finally get a great picture.
And these were are positions. We never changed spots and we could sit and read forever. You gotta love that.

And after a long weekend and a lot of driving, it was good to come home to this.

I couldn't ask for better kids and, most definitely, a better husband. Thanks Trent for always being willing to watch the kids. And thanks to Kimmy for helping out so much! It was greatly appreciated!!!
And thanks to my girls for making such a wonderful trip! I can't wait for the next one....maybe next month? ;)

Trips like that are always so needed, the best part about them is coming home feeling refreshed to be a mom again, I'm glad you were able to go. And happy to hear you're able to run again...hope it keeps getting better!

Isn't it true that sometimes the best break has a really good book starring in there somewhere? (I think I counted at least twice where you said the words "it was heavenly.") ha ha. Looks like a great time. Love the pic of you and all the little munchkins cuddling under 1 big blanket. Now THAT looks like a party.

What can I say to you other than - you spoiled brat! I am so jealous! But you deserve it. I'm glad your hubby is so supportive. What a cute group of kiddos you have.

Love a good girls trip! What a great husband.
When are we going to get together? I have so many twin questions. Now that it's getting warmer we could meet at a park or my back yard. E-mail me and we'll plan something.
