Last week AOK's parents took us to VEGAS! It was my first time to go and we got to spend a whole week exploring the fabulous town! One of those days we made our way to the Grand Canyon. A Hummer picked us up at 6:15am and drove us to Arizona to see what I think is one of life's special treats. If you have not been, you have to go. It's pure amazingness. I had been before a few years ago but never like this. We took a HELICOPTER ride INTO the Grand Canyon where there was a boat waiting for us to cruise along the Colorado River. I've never experienced anything like it. We had a blast. Well, I have to admit, the helicopter ride totalllllly freaked me out a bit. I had to sit in the front seat, all by myself, looking at all the controls, freaked out that if I moved my knee even the slightest bit to the right I probably would blow the thing up. Not to mention the wind tossed us all around the sky. I seriously talked to God the entire time. AOK and the sweet couple from Norway who joined us laughed at me the whole time. On the way back to Vegas we stopped at the Hoover Dam and saw (and rode over) the new bridge that was built. It was a fantastic day and it definitely was a memory maker. I never will forget it. Here are a few pictures from our trip, be looking for some house projects coming up in the next couple of days!
TAGGED to sit in the front seat! The smile on my face is because I have no idea what being in the front seat really means just quite yet...
Ok... this made it totally worth it. Look at the view.
Back in Vegas, AOK's celebrity siting. Ton from Auction Hunters on Spike. Ton was so nice! AOK was so happy!
The pool at the Monte Carlo (where we stayed) that we only got to use on FRIDAY! For a whole week Vegas was in the 50's and RAINED! Total fluke, but our day at the pool on Friday was so enjoyable, to me, that is what vacation is all about!
This is at The Venitian, it was my second favorite place. I'll talk about my favorite place in Vegas in another post as AOK and me are experimenting on something that hopefully I can brag about!It was definitely a much needed vacation. I realized I had never taken a week off work for an actual vacation ever! AOK and his family are just as fabulous as Vegas was! Kayli and me get to go to Rome next year with my cousin and her husband! Another memory maker! What are some of your memory making vacations?
