Las Vegas/Cruise Pictures

Here's a few pics from our vacation:  also, I apologize in advance because since it was only the 2 of us on the trip, we had to take all of the pics ourselves mostly, so you mostly get close ups of the two of us smiling, and not much else.

My view of our hotel from my tanning spot.  It was 86 degrees and sunny and beautiful.  My vitamin D-deprived body ate it up!

From the pool.

Our first night walking the strip, this is in front of our hotel, the MGM Grand.  Brandon cut off the lion's head, which was kind of the whole point of the entire picture, but oh wellsies.
 B in front of New York New York.
 Another from the pool. 
 We went to the Beatles Love Cirque Du Soleil show - it was AMAZING - definitely the highlight of our entire trip.  I sprung for buying the re-usable cup to like memorialize the experience, and it was definitely the most expensive Diet Coke I've ever bought!
Love and Diet Coke.
 Our first pic on the cruise ship.  We're a little dazed and overwhelmed.
Mini golfing on the ship.  It was FAREEZING!!

This picture took a lot of self-esteem to post because I look so big.  This was in our room, by the porthole windows.

Bingo and Diet Coke.  I didn't win.

We took like 38567203485 shots trying to make, as I said to Brandon, "silly faces."  ALL of his came out with him looking, well, not very silly, but sad. 
 Eating dinner, our last night on the cruise.

We had so much fun.  The cruise ended up being a bit of a bummer because the weather never got over about 68 degrees and cloudy and windy, but I still had fun enjoying the new experience.  I didn't realize until we got there how badly B and I needed this time together, without Cade or other distractions, to really spend time and focus on one another.  In summary, I had an awesome time!

For some reason, this post didn't come up before in my reader! Did you go to Las Vegas and THEN a cruise? I was getting confused between the two descriptions (and then you threw in New York. I think it's the Vegas version, but I could just be really confused.) Either way, I'm SO glad you and B got a chance to get away! My friend did this before her baby was born and called it a "babymoon." It seemed really original and creative to me, but it's probably something that all preggo moms know about and I'm just out of the loop. All your pregnancy pictures are SO're making my uterus hurt!!

sarah, we went to vegas first for a couple days, then went on a cruise - the new york i was referring to is of the las vegas variety. :)
