We had such an amazing time visiting my dad and Chris in Las Vegas! The kids were SO excited to come and could hardly sit still on the flight!! Luckily, Keaton slept and Sydney kept herself occupied with pretzels and apple juice. She called this her “great idea” (which was basically using the apple juice straw as a pretzel holder). Seems pretty genius to me! Hayley and Colin had iPads.
When our kids got off the airplane they knew just what to do, head for the slots! Just as they were about to put their quarters into the slot machine and help us retire 20 years early, we got caught by security. I feigned ignorance and pretended I had no idea what was going on. Don’t worry. We still had five days for one of us to strike it rich!
My dad pulled out the pretend red carpet when we arrived to the baggage terminal. When you see a person holding a sign with your name in bold pink and blue lettering at baggage claim, you know you’ve arrived. You must be someone important. After all the hugs and kisses, my dad asked, “So what should we do now?” It was only 9pm Vegas time, but 11pm Houston time. “Sleep! Let the kids sleep.” Lol. They wanted nothing of the sort, but we eventually got them to bed at the Springhill Suites!
