Isn't she just darling?! 

This was the hotel we stayed at. There's a wall in the way of the bottom part but the top is supposed to look like the New York Skyline! It's actually all one building! And if you can see towards the top of the wall right there, there's some people at the top of the roller coaster. 
This was the hotel that the rest of our family stayed at. 
On Saturday we went looking for pawn shops! We didn't have much luck until we ran into this cool place!

And that night, we went to an Airforce graduation/banquet for our brother-in-law. Although I'm not into that kind of stuff, it was very interesting and inspiring. We are so very proud of him :)
They called me Mrs. Connor ;)

Classic brother/sister picture! 
The graduate getting a present, can you guess what it is??!!!!
The wife, she looks excited lol. 
Me trying to be serious.... fail. Once I got the giggles, Brandon knew it was over. 
Brandon's obviously better than I am at keeping a straight face. 
except for in this one.... 
the view from the hotel where the banquet was 
Cousins, aaaaahhh so cute. 

The first night, we went out with Brandon's sister and her husband as well as some of their friends. We walked around for a bit, site-seeing, and then ended up at a club and danced the night away. 

The second night we were in Las Vegas, we went to the banquet and then took our turn watching all the kids! 5 total! I think I enjoyed it more than Brandon, tehehe. It was fun being a mom to 5 kids for the night. A lot of work but fun! Maybe we'll have 5 kids in the future?? :)

And our last night in Las Vegas, we went to Cirque de Soleil (Ka) and it was AMAZING. Seriously, the best show I've seen in my entire life and I don't think anything else will top it. So good. Then Brandon and I wondered around the streets of Las Vegas just kind of seeing everything. We walked all the way down to the Bellagio in hopes of seeing the fountain but when we got there, we found out it stopped running at midnight! Total bummer but I'm kind of a pro at walking in heels now. I guess Vegas will do that to ya. 

So ya, it was a good time. Not anything too crazy but we enjoyed getting out of Texas for a while and seeing our family. Las Vegas is a cool place, lots different from Houston and definitely a fun place to explore. 

When we flew back, my sister picked us up and we drove straight to Austin to catch a graduation party! Now that's when things started getting crazy. But I'll elaborate more on that later. Have a good weekend everyone!
