 Last Thursday, heading down to St. George to drop Ethan and Ana off with Grandma and Grandpa.  Troy's mom celebrated her 70th birthday last weekend in Las Vegas!  We had a babysitter, cute college neighbor watch the older kids, but thought she might be able to run Tanya to all of her games and pick everyone up if Ana & Ethan were "out of the way".  So I headed out with the little ones.  We stopped at my friends house for a little visit, which turned out to be a good thing.  The roads were wet the rest of the drive to St. George, we must have just missed all the storms.  The last hour we hit the end of a snow storm.  All the signs were plastered white and the plows were out so the roads weren't too bad at that point.  I was very happy I didn't have to drive in the snow.
 Got the kids to Grandmas and headed on down to Vegas.  Troy's flight was a bit delayed and I drove right up to the airport to pick him up, worked out lovely.  We stayed at the Trump International.  Donald had been there that morning to endorse Mitt Romney. 

 Did some shopping and lots of eating at Ceasars palace and the Wynn over the weekend.  The Trump was nice because there were no casinos and thus no smoking as we were walking in and out to go places.  There was shuttle service to the Wynn and Ceasars, we later discovered they were all connected through the malls which ended right across from Trump.  Morgan loves Greek myths so I took some pics for her.
 Had lunch Saturday at Max Brenner, everything Chocolate!

 Chocolate fountain above.  We saw Cir de Elvis, they did a couple really cool gymnastic acts, one on trampolines with super heros and one on the bars in military uniforms.

Then next night we saw Donnie and Marie who were pretty fun and lively.  Grandma was on the front row getting lots of attention from Donnie (some hi fives!) and Troy and Brady got lots of winks from Marie, Troy even got her water bottle top.  Quite the night.

 Betsy and Tiff had 70 people write what they liked best about Shareen and presented them to her in a cute hand bag Tiffy sewed.  Brett read a few and Brady told some stories.  I have that on video, no pics other than this one of Grandma holding her bag.  It was such a sweet thing to do and fun to hear the memories.

 Happy 70th Grandma!  Thanks for letting us party with you : )

Very fun. The woman holding the bag isn't really 70 is she? She looks my age. Either she looks young for her age or I look like I am 70. :)pi

I hope I look like that at 70. Or even 50. Good grief.
What a fun trip.
