It was THE best!! I love it when I laugh for an hour straight!
Tonight I came home to another CROCKPOT FAIL! This was supposed to be chicken for hawaiian haystacks-- But it was totally shriveled up and burned when i got home. I wasn't too happy about going to the grocery store after a long day of work. But i got through it and luckily mom's bbq chicken recipe did the trick and dinner was a success!
After my half marathon on Saturday, we drove to vegas to meet up with Devin's dad. It was a fun, but quick, trip! We stayed at the Treasure Island hotel. and boy was it full of treasures!
Bob got scared in the night and came to sleep on our chair so that we could protect him. (...that's a joke)
Yummy gelato at the Venetian!
My first gambling experience was very successful! I put in a dollar and won a dollar. That's two whole dollars!... Don't worry though. Devin and Bob taught me that it's a slippery slope and that I need to be careful.
Luckily we talked him out of buying a J Bieb portrait.
Four Seasons Sunday Brunch. It has become a Vegas tradition.
After watching the Patriots win! Boo yah!! I totally called who would win and the score! Maybe I'll move to Vegas and become a gambling fool. Sounds like the life for me.
P.S. HAPPY 1 YEAR AND 7 MONTHS TO US! Still goin' strong!
Have you ever heard of geo caching??? it is basically the coolest thing ever! Just picture an awesome treasure hunt. Ash and Brad introduced us to it- (typical) Basically you go online and there is a whole list of geo caches all over the world! You are given the coordinates and you have to go and find it with a gps. It is basically a little container with random items/souvenirs that people leave and a little notebook to sign. We found some really fun caches in st. george that we had to four wheel/hike to get to. Awesome!
Here is brad and devin finding our FIRST geo cache.
This was when we found our 4th geo cache of the trip. I found this one first!! ... okay so maybe my dad was trying to be nice because i hadn't discovered one yet and so when he found it he said "ummm steph- come over here. I think this would be a good area to look in."
Brad's awesome gear.
Cute mom and dad.
party in the kitchen!
on sunday we went on a beautiful little hike to see some real petroglyphs!! so cool!
Shooting guns. I'm a proud owner of a concealed weapons permit. Now whenever i get pulled over, it shows up on my record. Watch out cops! i'm hard core! Oh and look at that form.
Devin on a cliff.
more four wheeling.
the whole crew.
ahhh i love family trips!
now.. time to go pack my bags to go back to st. george/vegas!
Wish me luck on my half marathon! i'm a little nervous because i have this dang cold i can't get rid of. but hopefully i can run it under 2 hours. We shall see!
p.s. my sister has a hilarious blog. go here for more pics.
Life is crazy busy right now! (i guess it is always busy). But I haven't gotten around to blogging since Christmas because of it. The next post will be pictures from our St George trip last weekend for MLK day. It was a blast! I loved spending time with my family and being outside ALL DAY. I have really missed the sunshine while being cooped up inside all day. (which is why I have chosen to go out for recess duty every single day this week instead of just once each week. Being outside just lifts my spirits).
This friday we are actually headed back down to st. george so that i can run THE ST GEORGE HALF MARATHON! Woot Woot! and then we are meeting Bob down in Vegas for the rest of the weekend. So many trips and vacations... and pictures to upload on my computer. What a life. Love it!
P.S. Last weekend was Devin's dad's birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOB!! WE LOVE YOU! and we can't wait to see ya in VEGAS!
