Vegas Baby

Trey and I went to Vegasfor a few days of relaxation.  Well it was relaxing for me, Trey worked most of the time we were in Vegas.  We actually went because Trey was attending the Coal Expo which is a huge trade show for the mining industry. 

We went out of Saturday afternoon and we got there just in time to see the end of the Mississippi State vs. South Alabama game at the Hard Rock Casino.  After the game we had dinner at The Pink Taco. 
Sunday morning we got up and headed out for a day at the Hoover Dam.  Out of all the trips we have made to Vegas in the past we had never got  a car and headed over there.  We had a rental car for the trip so we took advantage of it and went sight seeing.  The Hoover Dam is amazing.  We went for a trip of the power plant and walked around the dam for a while.  It was a really neat place.

After venturing out away from the Strip in Vegas we headed back to the Strip to check into our resort for the week and get ready for dinner.  We stayed at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino this trip.  It was a nice hotel with great pools.  It was right on the strip which made easy access to everything.  Our room was on the 27th floor and looked over the strip.  We were able to watch the fountain show at the Bellagio from our hotel windows. 

We had dinner at one of my favorite places to eat in Vegas, Lakeside at the Wynn, with a group of Rexnord salesmen and their wives. It was a great dinner with great company.  After dinner we met up with Julie and Gregg Chaffin for drinks.
Monday, Trey worked and I laid out by the pool and read.  It was wonderful.  We had dinner with a group of the people from Joy Global at Joe's Stone Crab at Caeser's Palace.  It a great dinner.
Tuesday, Trey worked and I ventured around the strip.  I played a few times on the penny slot machines and really won $100!  I was so excited.  I headed back to our resort and hung out by the pool and then got ready for dinner.  We had dinner with the people from Freeport New Orleans at The American Fish at Aria.  It was a great dinner as well. 
Wednesday, Trey and I got up fairly early for breakfast at The Sugar Factory.  After breakfast, Trey went back to the show and I went to hang out by the pool.  We had dinner at Aquaknox at the Venetian.  I now have a new favorite place to eat in Vegas now.  It was to die for good!  After dinner we met up with Julie and Gregg again at the Bourbon Room in the Venetian.  It was so much fun!  A great way to end a great trip!.
We had a great trip!  We did not take our camera with us so the few pictures we have are from our phones.  We did not take very many pictures which was crazy.  Who knows what we were thinking!?!

Baby Jordan

September 15, 2012 my baby brother became a Daddy!  I still cannot believe that he has a baby.  Jordan Kathleen is a doll.  I'm so happy that we were able to go to Atlanta this weekend and see the sweet thing and her parents.  I cannot wait to go back and see her again!
