Spring Trip :)

We had been talking about taking a Trip to Vegas for a while now. This past weekend Chris saw a cheap last minute deal to fly into California, so since we have friends in Orange County we booked the flight, I asked off work and we left the next morning! When we got to the airport and checked out our rental car, the man at the counter asked me if we were here for a special occasion and I relied,"just for fun". He replied, oh so your going to Disneyland? OMG! My eyes lit up like the 4th of July! Chris was like... baby, is that what your wanna do? I'm jumping for joy like a little kid, yes yes yes! I would love to go to Disneyland!!!

So, of course you know, it was the first place we hit :) We took pictures with the characters and rode the rides, we had prefect timing because each line was only about a 20 minute wait, which was awesome. The weather was amazing and the food was good too!

After Disneyland we went to Venice Beach, got a hotel on the water and just hung out. The next morning we walked down the beach and I saw some crazy stuff! There were homeless people everywhere, talking to themselves, playing baseball with a broom and tennis ball... it was crazy! Just like when you see it on TV, I couldn't believe my eyes. We checked out of the hotel and went to see the hot spots, Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Rodeo Dr. I saw a 172 THOUSAND DOLLAR purse... can you believe that? Who would spend that kind of money on a purse?

We also hung out with some friends on the yacht, Chris and Dianne, they were great hosts! We took a ride down the coast and had dinner. It was nice to be on the ocean, so peaceful! Then it was off to Christian's house to stay the night. He lives in the same neighborhood as Tiger Woods! He over looks the ocean at Laguna Beach, most amazing thing! I would love to wake up to that every morning!

It was off to Vegas on Sunday morning and the drive was long but we keep good conversation going and listen to the comedy radio on the XM stations, funny stuff! Along the way we went to the Hoover Dam to check it out, pretty cool. Then when we got to Vegas we had just enough time to get ready for our show, we saw the Elvis Cirque Du Soiel that night and the next night it was The Blue Man Group and Phantom of the Opera! All the shows were amazing. My favorite was Blue Man Group and hanging by the pool, we wore SPF 70, so we wouldn't get burned! Smart kids :) i know!

The trip was amazing and on Tuesday we drove back to California to catch our flight home, oh and I forgot to mention the best place to eat, and we ate there atleast once a day if not twice... IN-N-OUT BURGER! Wow... it was awesome, and we hear that its coming to TEXAS :) They have confirmed the Firewheel Mall as a location!

Here are some pictures of the trip! It was so much fun!!
