Viva Las Vegas!

Warning: photo overload!

Two weeks ago we had the opportunity to head to Vegas to stay with my sister Haleigh while she is there for a summer internship. My good friend Mandi invited us to crash there vacation so we could see each other. They moved to Texas just before we moved to San Diego so we were so excited to meet up. We reunited with tears of course because that's just how I am unfortunately. We went to grab some dinner and as we left the area, Mike, Mandi's husband saw these Angry Bird t-shirts and of course the boys "had" to have them! I love this picture of Max and Rocco, the bomb birds, trying to attack the king pig! My boys may or may not have worn their shirts the entire time we were there. ;)

Mandi's wonderful husband Mike got us a reservation at the restaurant at the top of the Stratosphere. He took all of the kids to dinner and a movie so we could have some time together. My sister Haleigh joined us and we definitely had an amazing time. The food was delicious and the company was even better. Not sure how we didn't get a picture of all of us, but here is Me and Makai.
After dinner we met up with Mike and the kids at the fountains at the Bellagio, which are always amazing.
Rocco and Aidan just excited! It makes me sad to think we don't know when we will see them again.

The gang! We had so much fun and I'm so glad Mandi and Mike let us crash their vacation for 2 days. It wasn't long enough, but it will last us until we can schedule another meeting.

Friday morning Mandi and Mike had to fly back to Texas so we spent the day at the pool at Haleigh's apartment. When she got off work we went to Cafe Rio for dinner and then went to the M&M Factory and the Coca-Cola Factory. Aidan was in heaven to see all the M&M's. We had a great time and took heaps of pictures!

This picture cracks me up! They were all striking a pose with the Circus M&M's! What a bunch of crazies!
The group and their funny pose in front of the Coca-Cola bottle.

As we were leaving we found this statue of Liberty made out of jelly belly's! The kids wanted to eat it! We had such a wonderful weekend. Thank you Haleigh for letting us stay at your place!
