Viva Las.... Venetian!

Charise and I got to talking about going to Vegas together while we were out hiking one day. That same day I found out that Charise is a secret travel agent! We had that trip planned and booked at none other than the Venetian!!!! That's right, the Venetian!!!! And I have the pictures to prove it!
We spent the first day shopping, taking a guided tour of our suite (okay, not officially), and dinner at Gonzales & Gonzales! Yum!
That night we went to see the Blue Man Group! Wow! It was phenominal!! After one of the blue men was chasing Charise around taking her picture with some random guys camera, and trying to hold her hand! It was great!
The next morning we woke up happy because we really were staying at the Venetian, it wasn't just a dream!!! So we headed down to the pool where we our cabana's were waiting for us...
Well, someday we will have cabana's! Then it was more shopping and people watching before we had to head back to reality :/ It was a short trip, but well worth every minute!!

Bonneville or Bust!

This August the gang (Dad, Cory, Nate, Lisa, and me) headed up to Bonneville Speed Week!
We met up with our some of our most favorite people in the world, The Hansen's: Steve, Carrie, and Seth
Salt, Sun, and Hot rods everywhere you look! Pretty much heaven on earth! Bonneville is like being in another world...
....you can drive where ever you want and as fast as you want.. (this is Seth's truck and guess who got to drive it?!? Oooo! Me!)
...a place where you ride your bike right alongside the traffic and have a conversation with the person driving next to you (ahem! Papa John)..
...where you have a front row seat at the take off line, or stand right in between the race cars as they take off
...the place hot rodders tell you to quit lookin' at their ride and to jump on in!
...the place where you get sunburned from the above and below...
...it's a place that you're amazed that someone can actually fall asleep?
Most importantly it's a place you can enjoy friends & family, beautiful cars, and be in awe . Can't wait for Speed Week 2012!!!
