What Happens in Vegas...

Trent's Christmas bonus was an all inclusive weekend trip for two to Vegas.  Trent's sister Carrie came down from Tennessee to allow us our first trip away from the kids!  We stayed at the humongous MGM Grand Hotel and Casino for two glorious nights. 

We arrived on Friday afternoon and immediately hit the casino to try our luck at craps, roulette and slots.  After pocketing the $60 I won, we had sushi for dinner and then headed to bed by 9:30 Vegas time... we were exhausted! 

The next morning we woke to room service and stayed in bed all morning watching Bridget Jones Diary.  The $60 I won was burning a hole in my pocket so we went shopping on the strip and had lunch at Hooters.  With a nice beer buzz we hit the jacuzzi at the hotel and took a nice long nap before heading to the MGM Grand Buffet where we gorged on crab legs, shrimp, sushi and desserts.  With very full bellies, Trent entered a poker tournament and I walked off dinner by shopping for souvenirs.

Sunday morning greeted us with breakfast in bed before we caught the shuttle bus to the airport.  It was a short, sweet and very relaxing weekend.  We took advantage of the time away from the kids and rested and enjoyed each other's company.  What a perfect weekend!
