All things have to come to an end and the boys finally drove down and met us with all the kids! Just kidding, you know we all love our kids, but I'd be lying if I said we weren't enjoying our little time without them. Anyway, after meeting them at the hotel all the Mommies fixed the girl's hair and headed to the UNLV vs. Utah game. It was hard to see if the Utes had a good turn out because everyone was in red! It was a good game though and all the cousins loved climbing from bench to bench playing with each other!
this is how Dylan remained happy during the game

The next day was also eventful! After breakfast and Dylan's nap, we headed over to an outdoor mall near the Vegas airport that had a great little playground! The kids loved it and had a great time! The park also had a splash park and Haylee couldn't resist but to play in it, so we had to strip her down to her skimpies since she didn't have a swim suit with her. But at that age, who cares right? Dylan also thought he wanted in on the fun, but the second he went out to the water a huge sprinkler came up and hit him in the behind! He wasn't a big fan of that, so he got out of there as fast as he could! After the park Haylee didn't have enough fun in the water, so I took her swimming for a little bit while Daddy and Dylan hung out in the hotel room. After swimming we grabbed a bite to eat, then it was farewell to Brett! His dad and him were lucky and got to go see Bob Dylan in concert. For those of you that don't know- Brett is a huge Dylan fan (hence our son's name). So, what does a mommy and 2 kids do all by themselves in Vegas?? You find the nearest Wal Mart and go shopping :) The breakfast buffet just didn't cut it for us, so I decided to go buy fruit, juice, and granola bars for the next day. And since I was nice enough to let Brett go see a concert in Vegas without me, I rewarded myself with a pint of Ben and Jerry's Cookie Dough Ice Cream :) I even bought 48 spoons just so I could have one to eat with! I did go to the deli first to see if they had one I could have, but the lady said they have been out of spoons for while. I thought that was a little strange since the deli is in a Wal Mart! Couldn't they just go grab a box of spoons from the shelf?? Anyway, the extra 47 spoons were totally worth it, the ice cream hit the spot :) I had to force myself not to eat the whole pint! Luckily the kids were very cooperative and went to sleep without a fight.

The next morning we packed up and headed home. The kids actually slept most of the way and we even treated ourselves with In-n-Out burger in St. George! All in all it was a great family trip full of good memories (except for the fact that Haylee, Dylan, and Brett brought home the swine flu! yah, I have no idea how I was lucky enough not to get it)!
