Birthdays in Vegas!

Earlier this month, we had quite a special weekend with Blake's family.  We got to celebrate Blake's mom and his brother's birthdays in Las Vegas.
We did a little bit of everything....
We enjoyed sweet family time.  Catching up with each other.  Sightseeing.  Yummy food.  

Fancy meals.  Some gambling.  Even a little bit of fishing gambling.  ;)  HA!!  Fun shopping.  Lots of walking.  More fun sightseeing.  
This was Chelsey and Alan's first time EVER in Vegas, which made it even more fun.
Oh, and Gigi's cupcakes.  YUM!!!
We even did ziplining in downtown Vegas, (which happened to coordinate perfectly with seeing the Miss USA contestants).  
Yummy restaurant at the Cosmopolitan Hotel.  LOVED that hotel!  Soooo pretty inside.

Chelsey's only request was to see the fountains at Bellagio.
Check it off the list. :) So fun.
I love walking thru the Bellagio!
Needed a pick me up after the sun and walking we did...
Our favorite night we had dinner at a yummy, fancy restaurant and then we got to watch a phenomenal MJ show.
My favorite cousin, Chelsey and myself
(Don't tell my other cousins I said that.  HA!)
Blake's sister, Blair and her boyfriend Alan.
A huge highlight was being able to go to the Michael Jackson show that is held in the Mandalay Bay hotel.  It was phenomenal!!!  We absolutely loved it.
This pic below HAD to make the post.  My sweet cousin LIVES in her Rainbow flip flops.  Every day and all day if she can.  She said this was her first trip EVER not even bringing them.  HA!  So to have worn these heels until 3:30 in the morning...she deserves some major love for it.  YOU go Chelsey!!!  :)
For our last day we did a little shopping with the family and then headed to the airport.
And yes we finished off the Gigi cupcakes in the airport.  HA!!!  I know right?!  I was totally in on the action too, but I had to document this important moment.  :)
And we loved coming home to these smiles.  Austin loved his new hat Mimi and Big Papa got for him. And of course Sissy wanted to give it a try too.  ;)  We missed them!
