We started our vacation this year in Las vegas. I know, a great place to take a kid fresh off of his mission! We stayed at the Excalibur because we knew that it would be fun for Kennedy to stay in a real live castle! It had a fun pool with a slide too. It was great hanging out as a family, eating good food, going on roller coasters and the scary ride on top of the Stratosphere.
At night, my mom was nice enough to watch the kids while my brothers and sisters and Christian and I went out on the town. We rode the roller coaster at New York New York, walked the strip and maybe did a tiny bit of gambling. SHHHH.
Kennedy loved Vegas! She always said "Can we please go back to our castle now?" And all Liam wanted to do every day was "sim" aka swim. He is such a water baby and I love it! Being together as one big family was a lot of fun and inside jokes were common and very hilarious. After 3 days in Vegas, we were off to Lake Powell. I posted a video of our pictures below this post. I will post about Lake Powell tomorrow though.
Besides vacation, a lot is going on in our family. We have set a date to move to Texas on Sept. 11 if all goes well. It kind of sounds like a dooms day to move, but, we feel it will be good for our family. We will probably sell off quite a bit of our furniture before we leave, so if you are in the market for some furniture, let me know!
