Three-day Weekend

Dave's sister Debbie and her husband Chad came into town on Saturday to spend a few days with us and then they were going to stay at a hotel on the strip for their anniversary. It was fun to have them here. We had a good time going out to dinner, making chocolate fondue for dessert (it was so easy to make and SO good I don't know why I don't make it more often - the boys would LOVE it) and just hanging out. On Memorial Day we all headed to the strip and checked Debbie and Chad into their hotel and then went to the Bellagio because we heard they had trains set up in the garden. The boys loved seeing the trains. Afterwards we walked down to watch the fountains which Trevor and Colin really enjoyed. After saying good-bye to Debbie and Chad we came home and all rested a little bit and then I made a picnic dinner and we ventured out to the Dinosaur park. After eating and playing we went to get ice cream. As I was putting the boys to bed that night Trevor said his favorite thing of the day was seeing the magic water. My favorite part was just hanging out as a family - I don't think since Logan was born we've done an outing like that with all 5 of us. I think it made all of us excited for our trip to Reno in July...hopefully we'll all survive the drive.

Of course I forgot my camera...I will post pictures when Debbie e-mails them to me.

Sounds like it was great! I love that Trevor called the fountains "Magic Water". Too cute! I need to take Ethan and Aubrey out there.
And yes, I love Harlen Coben. His writing style is perfect for me.

It sounds like you had a busy weekend. We did too! We also had friends visiting plus one wedding and three birthday parties from Friday until Tuesday. Good times; very busy! Should we get together with the Gublers some Saturday this month at a park?

I'm glad you mentioned it had been a while since you went on an outing like that because I was starting to feel guilty; you did give me some great ideas that we can go do with our family though! My kids have never seen the water show either. I'm glad you guys had such a good time!
