Back and fully rested :)

Vacation was wonderful. :) The Flamingo Hotel gave us a free upgrade when we checked in last Monday. I thought it would be a better view of the strip or something small like that. But no, we ended up on the top floor in a full on double-door SUITE. We spazzed. Especially since the only reason we stayed at the Flamingo was because it had the best price. haha. :) Anyway, we saw Blue Man Group and Cirque Du Soleil's Mystere. Both were fun, but Blue Man Group was our favorite. The venues are pretty strict about their no photo policy, so I don't have any pictures from the show. Poo. We also cruised over to Hoover Dam while we were in town. Was I blown away by the size of the bridge? The beautiful water contrasted against the mountainous desert landscape? The incredible accomplishment of the engineers who built this historic landmark? Nope! I had a hard time taking my eyes off the electrical towers that were built at an angle on the hillside. lol. This is what happens when you, your dad, and your brother all work(ed) in the power industry. ;)


On Wednesday, we headed down to the San Diego bay area, which has officially become our favorite vacation spot. 


The weather was gorgeous, and we were able to do a lot while we were there. We went to Sea World, USS Midway, a Padres game, walked around Coronado Island, and did our usual movie watching and eating amazing food. :)

It was so nice to get away, just the two of us, for a whole week. We had the best time together. :)
