Viva Las Vegas!

It's official...
Dad, little bro, KR
 plus

Me and my Momma

ARE OFF TO LAS VEGAS!!!

We officially booked our tickets for the beginning of March.
My parents always wanted to take my baby bro when he turned 21.
However, football season always interferes with big plans for his birthday since he is a September baby.
The plan was to always go in the Spring after he turned 21.
I feel like we have talked about this trip for years and it is really happening.

It's sad to say, but this is the first vacay my family has went on together since I was in high school. My brother and I were both so involved with cheerleading and football/basketball that we could never get away. Plus my dad coached the high school and middle school b-ball team. There was just never enough time for us to all go together. Now don't get me wrong, I have definitely done my fair share of traveling over the years, but to have us all together and with KR is gonna be special.
I am super excited!

I have been to Vegas twice, both times with KR.

Me and Kev my first trip to Vegas in 2009. I feel like we both look like babies .

Last April '11 in Vegas

Kev has been over a dozen times...literally. Guy loves him some Vegas.
Both of my parents have also been before, but not little bro.

We plan on eating at mine and Kev's favorite restaurant, Joe's.
It is located at the Caesar's shopping area.
Two words...fresh crab!
I am talking table side service to do all the messy work for you while you chow down on ENORMOUS crab legs.



Burger Bar in Mandalay Bay is another must for us. If ya'll ever go, do yourself a favor and go get the best hamburger you will ever eat in your life. I mean finger-lickin good!



KR and I want to also take them to a Cirque du Soleil show.
I am hoping we see O.



My dad INSISTS we have the breakfast buffet at Paris. He swears it is the best buffet on the strip.



 And let's be honest, it sure isn't a Vegas trip without hitting up the buffet.

The fam, Kev and I also have a little competition going on for our Vegas trip.
Have you seen the show Pawn Stars on the History Channel?

 

Well, we are each going to take one item to the pawn shop. I know we are major nerds, but I love it. We have all been brainstorming for months on what item we will take. Whoever gets the most for their item gets a prize that has yet to be determined. My family is pretty competitive, especially my daddo. He won't even discuss his item with us. This could get interesting :-)

And of course we plan on hitting the roulette and black jack tables as well as the slot machines. Maybe it will also be warm enough in March for me to get my tan on by the pool.
Regardless, I absolutely cant wait!!!

Have ya'll been to Vegas before? Do tell your favorite spots!
