Summer of Love

I love summer! That is about all you can say, I love everything about it; cookouts, swimming in the pool, tanning by the pool, vacations, playing with the kiddos, dirty toes and flip flop lines, no bedtimes, sleepovers, catching lightening bugs, weeny roast, marshmallow roasts, campfires, just to name a few!!! In the next few months you will be seeing a lot of those things and events taking place and I couldn't be more excited.

We will have a new someone to share these events with......meet Trigger!!! He is a 9 week old Australian Shepherd!!! He is so darn cute.  He has blue eyes and is a little butter ball!!! So far he seems like he is going to be a really good dog. The kids just love him, and I do too!!! ;)

Speaking of dirty toes.........check out Maddies!!

*****Disclaimer I found this post that I wrote and never published it!!!! Trigger is now about 18 weeks old!!!! I will post about him very soon with some new pictures!!!***

Day 3 Las Vegas

Out and about in Las Vegas Day 3

Pool Day

Not sure why my feet look white LOL, We had a great day at the pool.  Didn't get down to the pool until around 11:00 really not expecting to get a good chair or barely 2 together, but we lucked up and got 4 on the first row!!!! How lucky are we!!! We stayed poolside for about 3 hours. The guys came and went. They would gamble for a while then come back.  A person could not have stayed much longer or they would have fried! It was 95 degrees that day, but the Las Vegas heat is so much different than KY heat. NO humidity!!!
At the Stratosphere, eating dinner at the On Top of the World Restaurant

THe Stratosphere
That night for dinner we went to the Stratosphere to the On Top of World Restaurant!! Can I get OMG, it was delish!!!!!! And the view, was AHHH-mazing!! I had never eaten here and it was a must this trip. the floor of the restaurant rotates a 360 degrees. It takes 1 hour 20 minutes to make a complete circle.  We had reservations at 7:00 and by the time we were finished eating it was dark, so we timed it perfect.  Chris and I had been up in the Stratosphere twice before but had never eaten here.

the view from above

My side item...twiced baked potato that was huge!!!

All dressed up in our finest!!
in the Mirage, went strolling after we ate
