New Car + Vacation

Hughie lost his company car to a crash earlier this year.  Thankfully no one was hurt.  The company has bought several vehicles from a dealership in St. George before.  Happily they found a car to meet the company's needs and Hughie's needs.  We had to go pick up the car, so at the last minute we made it into a little vacation.

We spent our first night in Vegas.  We decided to walk the strip to get to the HardRock Cafe for dinner.  What were we thinking?!  Mama wasn't coping.  Daddy said, "Never again!"  Janna said, "Maybe I should come here on my honeymoon."  And Sam stumbled the whole way because I oh so wanted him to keep his eyes closed.  We got through it, but again, "What were we thinking?!"  Oh, I know, we weren't thinking.

The food was great, it was fun to see the HardRock Cafe memorabilia, and while we walked back to our hotel room we got to see the Bellagio water fountain display.  We tried to calm ourselves in our hotel room by watching a show on the Discovery channel.  Uhh, it was Shark week - that will do it!   We finally went to sleep.

Our next day was the drive to St. George. We hit all the Church history sites, had a couple of meals and our day was done.  We had a little time that evening to splash around in the pool and hang out in the spa.  Then it was back upstairs for some more Shark week.  Do we know how to party or what?!

The next morning Hughie picked up his car and we were on our way home in two seperate vehicles.
What we went for, Hugh's new ride.

"We live in a world that is filled with options. If we are not careful, we will find every minute jammed with social events, classes, exercise time, book clubs, scrapbooking, Church callings, music, sports, the Internet, and our favorite TV shows. . . Families need unstructured time when relationships can deepen and real parenting can take place. Take time to listen, to laugh, and to play together."

M. Russell Ballard,
