Viva Las Vegas!

We had a great time in Vegas this past weekend. It wasn't too hot so it was perfect for walking around and showing all the hotels to the kids. We stayed at Treasure Island and had a view of the strip from the 25th floor. The kids loved looking out at all the lights at night! One of the highlights of the trip was the M&M store...for me and the kids, LOL!!



ANYTHING you could ever imagine putting a logo on...had the M&M logo! How about a coffee mug??



Pencils, pint glasses, pajamas, shower curtains, basketballs, hot pads, bedspreads, baby bibs, the list went on and on. For 4 floors!! The best part was the huge tubes of M&M's in every color imaginable...



A chocolate lovers delight!!



How about a prepackaged tackle box with all sorts of colors already organized for you??



The kids brought allowance money so that really cut down on the 'Buy me this, buy me that!!'. They had a certain amount of money to spend. Kayla got a big green M&M pillow and Kevin got an orange monkey with really long arms wearing a M&M shirt. They had so much fun. And when we walked out...look who we saw????



The Red M&M (who the kids have named Johnny)!! Serious excitement. The rest of the weekend was filled with the swimming pool, big fancy expensive drinks and Craig and I went to see the Blue Man Group. Thanks grandma for babysitting!!

Hope you all had a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Oh! How FUN!!! I remember taking my kiddos to Vegas for Spring Break several years ago. They had THE best time touring all the theme hotels. We kinda blew it out of the park with several shows and a helicopter sunset tour of the Grand Canyon and the Strip. And who doesn't love M&M's! They are my absolute favorite candy...plain...NO peanuts for me.

I was really counting on seeing your entry for the contest at SS. I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt you would do something amazing!!! I'm just hanging out and taking notes during the crop. But I gotta tell ya, there are some super fun challenges coming. The current DT certainly knows how to make it fun. Hopefully you can play along.

Hope you are having a great start to the week! Love ya, L
