Easter in Vegas

We were lucky enough to get to spend Easter in sunny Las Vegas this year! Weston had to go to his usual KFC meetings so we decided to head there early so we could spend Easter w/ family. It's so nice that we can stay at his parents house and can get away from "the srip" when we want to. We packed in a whole lot of fun in just a week, so here are some pics!

Our good friends Neil and Naoma Wilkinson who used to live in MN just happened to be visiting Vegas the same week we were! We hadn't seen each other in over 2 years! It was so fun to see them!

We took the boys to their 1st magic show at the Monte Carlo to see Lance Burton. They loved it!

They loved visiting the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay. I think their favorite was the jelly fish!

We can't be in Vegas w/o spending some time swimming! I usually just lounged by the pool feeling like a beached whale! :) Is this pregnancy almost over?

Weston's mom set up a fun treasure hunt for the kids to find their baskets. Logan loved that he could read all the clues w/o any help. They had about 10 stops before they finally found their goodies! Their little cousin Vella was so cute. She didn't know what to think so she just ran around following the boys! We went to church and then had an amazing Easter dinner. Later in the evening Weston's Aunt and Uncle and set up a HUGE egg hunt for all of the kids that were in town. The boys loved seeing their 2nd cousins! Now we have enough candy to last a year!

Look who's 4!

I can hardly believe it, Carson is 4! Where did the time go? For his special day we took him to dinner at his favorite restaurant Space Aliens Grill. This is a really fun place w/ an outer space theme and a game room. Then it was back home for presents and cupcakes! Luckily Weston helped w/ the "Jumpin' Jackpot" game and won the boys 150 tickets! By the end of the night they had over 400 tickets so they each got to pick out 2 pretty big prizes! I'll never understand how kids can get so excited over the "junk toys" at these places, but they sure do! I really would rather just give them each 10 bucks to spend at the toy store, but apparently that's not nearly as much fun! ;)
