I’m not sure why exactly, but I was on a blogging break for about 2 weeks. Can’t say I was extremely busy, but I did have my fair share of activities to replace any blogging urges I might have had.
July 1 – 4, I was in Vegas! And can you believe it? I didn’t even check or post on Facebook, didn’t tweet, and I certainly didn’t blog either.
The main purpose for our trip was for Eldest’s dance competition. And THIS happened.
Yes, we are VERY proud of her. Just getting on stage and performing her best was enough to make us proud, really. She was very nervous, but she still did her thing anyway. How many of us can swallow fear and still perform on cue?
Yep, the kids were with us – plus my mom. (Gotta love moms, eh?) We didn’t hit the slots or card tables. The only liquid we drank were either water, coffee, or Powerade. And the closest we ever saw of half-naked people were on those billboards on top of the taxicabs or in the magazines.
I’d say that we totally didn’t miss out on any fun! Who needs all those in Vegas anyway? Plenty of other stuff to do there.
Did I mention the buffets? Here’s a sampling to make you drool twice over and book a flight to Vegas, right now:
I admit it’s mostly desserts on the pic, but really, I DID eat other types of food! I just….didn’t feel as compelled to take their pictures, you know? (Maybe I felt a little ashamed about showing how much I stuffed my face?)
Whatever. Anywho, we also did some of these:
*sigh* It was fun, but definitely tiring. I’m not complaining though. It was a much needed break and fun for all of us. If I had the money, I’d go back right now!
Next step though, is to make a photobook of our trip. What’s that? Good luck, you say? Thanks. I REALLY needed that.
So, where’ve you been this summer???
