A much needed vacation

One thing I miss the most, and the least since Ryan quite his job is his traveling. I miss it because he traveled so much that there was always a couple trips I would get to go with him. So I always had a vacation to look forward too. We always stayed in really nice hotels, all our food was paid for, I usually got either a massage or pedicure, and many times we were completely catered too. Well since Ryan has quite his job we no longer get to enjoy those perks, but I also get to see Ryan a lot more because he isn't flying here or there all the time.

Well because he doesn't fly here or there all the time we have not gone on a little vacation for quite some time. Of course being the spoiled brat that I am,  I was complaining to Ryan, so he set up a nice relaxing vacation for the two of us. Now we didn't stay in any 5 star hotels, and we had to pay for all our meals, no massage, and no one catered to us at all, but it was still one of the best vacations I have been on. Why you ask? Because we had absolutley NO responsibility, it was warm and we shopped a lot! We had no plans whatsoever. so we could do whatever we felt like doing whenever we wanted. It was great!

So this is our trip in a nut shell:

Arrived in St. George-shopped and ate.

Arrived in Mesquite: relaxed in the hot tub. Slept.

Arrived in Las Vegas-shopped and ate.

Arrived in Primm: shopped, hot tub, slept.

Back to Vegas-Shopped. Gambled-a whole four dollars (those penny slots are a killer)

Arrived in Cedar city: Hot tub, ate slept.

Drove home the scenic way.

Notice the trend? Lots of shopping, eating and sleeping! It was great!

And now I am ready to be a mom again! I missed those cute kids!

and Thanks Ryan for the weekend away! It was PERFECT!

That sounds like a great vacation to me! Sometimes you just need something like that to rejuvenate. AND you must have good kids. No one ever wants to watch ours ;).
