So I left work at around 3:30 and hit the road. We didn't end up getting to Kevin's brother's house until 10 pm. I wish that Keith and Autumn lived closer (like in southern CA) because they are a lot of fun to hang out with. They have two adorable kids as well who have grown so much since the last time we saw them. Children grow so quickly.
|Kevin and his niece. He says he doesn't want kids but he is so good with them :)|
Ended up sleeping in pretty late. Saturday afternoon was full of lazy lounging around and playing with the kids. I played with their 5 (almost 6) year old son. We played Little Big Planet. I suck at video games. I really do. So much so that he kept telling me I was killing him and that I was horrible at the games. He kicked my butt big time on all the games I played with him. I think we all finally got ready and dressed at around 4 or 5. We then dropped the kids off at their babysitters for the night.
It was Autumn and Keith's anniversary. AWWW so we went and celebrated that with them down on the strip. We got them a room at the Riveria and we stayed at Planet Hollywood. We wouold have stayed at the same hotel or at hotels on the same side of the strip but I messed up with the reservations and by the time I booked ours Planet Hollywood was the only hotel with decently priced vacancies. Our room was gorgeous because we got upgraded to a VIP room since we checked in late and were giving a smoking room (which luckily didnt smell like smoke). The room was GORGEOUS! It had a huge tub and a comfortable huge bed. It was the Indiana Jones themed room and it had a bunch of actual props/costumes from the movies. Pretty kick ass for $90 if I do say so myself.
|This is pretty much what our room looked like except without the chairs.|
|Real men drink fruity eifel tower drinks ;)|
|Yummy! No I wasn't really drinking both the drinks. Im not that hardcore|
I ended up waking up pretty early for some reason and just laid in bed watching American Wedding. I finally woke Kevin up around 10 am (checkout was at 11). I took a bath in the AWESOME tub because I just had to. You can't let a tub like that go to waste. We then checked out of our hotel and went down to the Riveria to check Keith and Autumn out.
I am really pissed at the Sahara because they wiped my comp dollars clean and I should have had $150 left and I had $.02. We went over there to eat at the NASCAR Cafe and we al shared a sampler. It was SOOO much food that even all 4 of us couldnt finish it. I also got a souvenir cup with strawberry margarita in it. YUMMY! We hit the road at 2 pm and didnt get home until 8:30 pm.

It was a very fun trip but Im still wiped out from it. I am excited for next weekend because there shall be gaming and more drinking. :) I hope your weekends all were great.
