Hubby and I used to travel ALL the time for pleasure and for work/pleasure too. But… since having kids we haven't been away from them for more than 24hrs (once a year) by ourselves in well over 6 years. The last time we left for 8 days to Cancun and that was way too long since the boys were babies (1 and 3) and we all missed each other too much. So, we've been taking family getaways ever since. Well… no more babies = we are going to take off for 4 days to Vegas the first week of April! i am so excited – booked it today (steal of a deal!). It's the only time we could get proper childcare and most convenient for my before and after school kids too (I run a dayhome). It will be a VERY crazy, busy month (understatement) with Easter the weekend before and then all 3 of my kid's birthdays are in April too. 4 glorious days of nobody asking for anything, no cooking, laundry, dishes or making even my own drinks – SOOOO WORTH IT, LOL. I think it's the least we deserve for 11 years of marriage and 3 kids, right?December 3, 2012 at 12:46 pm #191073December 3, 2012 at 12:53 pm #191074
Vicky that sounds like a wonderful getaway! You guys deserve some time away and Vegas babeeeee–well you can get all your yayas out there!December 3, 2012 at 1:29 pm #191076December 3, 2012 at 1:35 pm #191075
6 years! You definitely deserve a holiday! Have fun! Are you going to see any of the shows? I would highly recommend the Cirque due Soleil show KA. We went to it a few years ago and it was a mind-blowing show. I was in awe from the moment the lights went down, till they came on again. It was absolutely amazing.December 3, 2012 at 2:41 pm #191077December 3, 2012 at 4:11 pm #191078
Have fun! April is a great time to go weather-wise. Bring shorts if you plan to be outside at all. 🙂December 3, 2012 at 7:43 pm #191079
I used to go to Vegas every year for work so I've seen the Blue Man group and we are getting tickets to Cirque that's coming here to Calgary in the Spring sooo… I want to see the glitzy feathers and can-cans this time, LOL. Hubby has never been to Vegas so it will be eye candy for him (oh the lights too 🙂December 3, 2012 at 8:08 pm #191080
I can't believe it's been that long for you!! It's so well deserved.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."December 3, 2012 at 11:24 pm #191081December 3, 2012 at 11:41 pm #191082December 4, 2012 at 4:06 am #191084
