Babymoon in Vegas

Yep, you read that right....................we had a "Babymoon in Vegas!"  Can you believe I went to sin city at 8 months pregnant?!!  It was a little weird, but it was fun.  Chris had business at Nellis AFB so we decided I would tag along for our last trip before our bundle of joy is born. 

Our first meal in Vegas was at Gordon Ramsey's Pub & Grill.  We are huge fans of Gordon and it was so fun to eat in one of his restaurants.  It was actually inside the famous Caesar's Palace.  The service was great and my favorite part of the meal was the dessert.  It was a spice sponge cake with ice cream and caramel sauce YUM!!!

Vegas was fun but not my kind of place.  Definitely not a good place to be when you're 8 months pregnant and not feeling great.  Hope you enjoy the pictures!

The famous Bellagio Fountains

Gardens inside the Bellagio (my favorite and most beautiful casino)

This is a replica of the Trevi Fountain inside the shops at Caesar's Palace.

Chris took this picture while I was resting and waiting for the gondola ride at the Venetian.  This was the one thing I really wanted to do while we were there.

The volcano show at the Mirage

At the Luxor

We didn't gamble much but when we did, this is what we ended up with!
Our last day there we went to see the "Pawn Stars" pawn shop.  We watch that show all the time so it was really cool to get to go inside and see it in person.  None of the guys were there but it was still fun!

We had just seen the episode where Rick bought this cigar box that sat on JFK's desk in the oval office.  It was being sold for $125,000.00!!! 

All in all it was a fun trip.  It was harder on me than I thought it would be and honestly I was never so happy to get home!  Someday we'll tell Chloe that she was in Vegas just a month before she was born!

Baby Shower #2

I have been a very bad blogger lately!  I'm going to try to catch up and that means going back a bit.  In February, Chris' family gave us a baby shower.  It was wonderful and everyone was so generous!  Miss Chloe not only has tons of people who love her, she now has enough clothes that she'll be able to wear something new (4 or 5 times a day) for at least the first 6 months!! 

Chloe and I felt so special!

We had games, a cookout, everything!  It was so much fun!!!

The happy parents to be!!!

Here's a picture of all the clothes!  I counted 91 outf1its!  And believe it or not there was not one duplicate!!

Here's the carseat and stroller combo that Mom & Dad got for us.  I love it!  Chris even practiced with a baby doll - lol!!

Thank you so much, Vicki & Teresa!  I love you both so much!!

Stay tuned for more updates coming soon.  We have some more exciting news to share and I can't wait to tell you all!!
