The most wonderful place on earth...

VEGAS!!!  :)

 We don't gamble, we don't drink, we don't pay ridiculous amounts of money to get into clubs...

But we love it.

It may have something to do with the fact that it's the closest city with anything open after 9pm other than Pizza Hut. Or maybe it's that if we want to shop anywhere other than Target or TJMaxx this is the closest city with any sort of decent shopping. Even better than shopping though is the fantastic people watching, it just can't be beat.

Last week Tracy and Lincoln flew into Vegas for Lincoln's work, which meant we were headed down to hang out with Tracy while Lincoln worked.

Thanks to the grandparents slipping us 20's all the time we were able to head down Tuesday night and get a cheap hotel. Woot, Treasure Island!!! While the casino part may be pretty janky and the people super sketchy and homeless looking, the hotel part was clean and newly renovated. And the beds! Super comfy, we slept sooo good.

 One of the many highlights included the street magician. Chad and I both had a turn at being his assistant. Lucky us. After saying he needed a lovely assistant he came right for me. I also received a compliment from a drunk homeless person saying my hair was beautiful. Don't be jealous.

My part in the "magic show" (I use that term loosely) included a lot of bowing and waving of a Kleenex, I think everyone was confused. My favorite trick was when he would have a certain number of red balls in his hands and then turn around in a circle and when he was facing us again... tada!... there was another ball!!! It was definitely the worst, yet best, magic show ever.

We ate a lot of delicious food courtesy of Lincoln's work, walked and shopped until we literally dropped, sampled Godiva chocolates, watched the fountain show at the Bellagio and just enjoyed spending time with our family!

Side note: Are we the last people on earth to try macaroons? They were the Next time we are down there I'm getting 5... and I'm not sharing either.
