Hear No, See No, Speak No Evil in Vegas...yeah right!

So I started my vacation flying out to Las Vegas for my sisters wedding. My mother in law came with me (thank goodness) because Daniel wasn't coming until the day of the wedding. He had already committed to helping with a church camp.
Here are a few pics of my girls with my MIL. Isn't she beautiful? And she is even more beautiful on the inside. I praise my sweet Jesus constantly for giving me an amazing MIL.

The day after we got there my MIL and I decided to head out and find some family friendly fun things to do in Vegas. We started out at Circus Circus where we rode some rides in the Adventuredome. After driving down the strip and having to constanly shield eyes and distract from what Taylor called "not appropriate" things we decided to go to the Cheesecake Factory to eat and then to go back to the hotel.
We stayed at the Tuscany which turned out to be very nice. It is located right off the strip. My sister got married in the chapel there so we figured it would be convient to stay there. The chapel was beautiful. They have a nice pool there so we got up the day of the wedding and went swimming until it was time to clean up.
Me trying to teach Kennedy how to kick her legs. By the end she was trying to push away from me to swim by herself although she is not quite ready for that yet.

The night before the wedding the guys and girls all went out on the strip seperately. We only ran into each other once. Let me tell you, we did some major walking that night.

It was a lot of fun getting to hang out with all the girls. Especially getting to hang with my sisters since we don't see each other much anymore since we all live in different states. We were perfect angels that night....

Really we were. With one sister getting married and the other pregnant we were pretty calm. We didn't know what to do with ourselves so we just walked the strip. Every now and then stopping in somewhere to kick back and relax for a bit. We finally decided that we all wanted to ride the roller coaster on top of New York New York but by the time we walked down there it was already closed:(

I am going to do another post with just some pictures of everyone after the wedding. Unfortunatly I don't have any pics from the wedding itself because they wouldn't allow any other photos to be taken except for the ones that were part of their package and I haven't bought any of those yet. We had a blast after the wedding. My dad had rented a F650 Stretched Ford Limo that was huge and ran on BioDiesel for the night for the wedding party and a couple friends to hang out in. That is most definately the best way to see all of Vegas. So stay tuned for those pictures...
