Viva Las Vegas Baby!

Dear Carter,

We are so blessed by such caring family and friends. I need to thank them for all of their kind messages regarding Jovie. She is doing just fine now, and as your dadddy would say, is back to 100%. I'm not sure what was going on with her, but she definitely has her spunk back.

These next couple of weeks are going to be so exciting for our family.  Mikey has been preparing for his First Holy Communion, and he finally gets to make it in a little less than two weeks.  He and Daddy are going to his First Holy Communion retreat this Saturday.  I'm praying that it turns out to be a very special day for the both of them.

As promised, here are a few more pictures from our trip.  We started off our trip with a short drive down to Cedar City. The plan was to let your brother and sister swim in the hotel pool, and get an early start the next morning.  We then drove to Las Vegas. When I was a kid, we had a couple of vacations there, and I remember really liking it. Mikey and Jovie????  Not so much.

They certainly didn't like looking at all of the different hotels, and didn't care for the crowds.  Once we checked out the pool at the Excalibur, they became fans quickly.  It was shallow through the whole pool, and even had a slide.  Too bad on the way back it was really windy, so they didn't enjoy the pool at the Luxor quite as much (although they did think it  was pretty awesome to sleep in a pyramid).

For some reason, the above pose was the one that Mikey preferred throughout our entire trip.  I'm pretty sure that at least 80% of our pictures look like that. Ha Ha!!

The next day we hit San Diego.  I can't wait to tell you all about our trip to Sea World....besides the beach it was definitely my favorite part.

I also found out that little Emily is now in Heaven with you.  I've been following Emily's story at A New Kind Of Perfect since you were born, and am heartbroken for her family, but so happy for her.  I'm sure there was one heck of a welcome party for her! Many prayers to them!
