Las Vegas

Thanks to the my brother Travis, MaRea and I had a free hotel for thee nights in Vegas. He even offered to watch Kaden so that meant our first trip without him, EVER!! Neither of us realized how much attention he requires and it was nice to be able to relax without him. We did call and talk to him one morning and quickly learned that was a mistake when the only thing he could say was, in a whiny tone, "You come pick me up daddy?" Our conversation lasted long enough for him to break down crying. We felt only a little guilty.

The second best highlight was MaRea nearly passing out during the Treasure Island pirate show. At 8:30 it was still well above 100 degrees and combination of a packed crowd, lack of water and pregnancy she needed to lay down for a minute. Luckily a security guard was quick to respond with cold water and a cold rag. She quickly recovered. The best highlight of the weekend was the Cirque de Soleil show KA we attended Saturday night. The cheapest tickets were 70 dollars a piece, but the seats were still great. This was my second Cirque show and MaRea's first. If you haven't seen one they are well worth the price of admission. I'm afraid I can adequately describe what it was like so take a look at the trailer.

First, what is up with selling your house? It looks fabulous by the way. I want the whole story.
How nice to get away with only one child. It sounds like she is already tiring you out!

What a fun time, enjoy a little peace now because you know in about a month your life will change AGAIN. By the way Kyle, I keep checking to see when the next book will appear. I don't think most people know that your book has an epilog. I just happened to find it by chance when I checked to see if the next book had begun. I need something else to look forward to each day. Soon I hope?
