Over Valentine's weekend and Joel's Birthday we went to Vegas to spend some time with his family. It was fun to go back to my roots. I have to say it is very weird going there as a tourist and not having my house to go home to. We had such a fun weekend! I was pretty sad though because I was hoping to be able to pull out my flip flops and get out of the cold for a while. Lets just say it felt pretty close to Utah weather.

The first night there we went up the Eiffel Tower. It was freezing at the top so we didn't stay up there to long unfortunately. I love this picture!!Here we are freezing to death at the top. It was so windy!!

The beautiful Bellagio
The gorgeous view from the top.
Joel's birthday is on Valentine's Day. Happy Birthday Babe!!! That night we went to a yummy mexican restaurant with Joel's parents and Janelle and Jeremy. It was also Jeremy's Birthday. Totally random that Joel and his brother-in-law have the same birthday on Valentine's Day.
After dinner we went to the grocery store to get some things for Joel's Birthday cake. I asked Joel to go and grab a cart and this is what he came back with. I was laughing so hard. I know they usually have fun carts with little seats on the front for kids but this one was just absolutely obnoxious. Everyone was staring at us and we had like three things in the cart with no kids. I wouldn't expect anything less from Joel. He is always making me laugh and keeping me on my toes!!!

We went to the Venetian and walked around. I love the canal shops!!

This totally reminded me of our fun trip to Venice a few years ago!!
Joel's sister Melanie and her husband Jonathan. It was so good to see the whole family. We miss you and can't wait for our next family adventure!! Thanks for everything!
