Vegas baby! or Vegas with a baby?

The time has come again for Vegas!!!
you can see previous years here and here
Never, ever, ever, ever did I think that I'd be hauling a 2 month old through casino after casino (volunatarily!)
alas...there i was.

We were orginally scheduled to arrive in Vegas Wednesday around 2pm.
There just happened to be an ice storm in Monroe the night before, so we didn't get out until 5pm...putting us in Vegas at midnight (Vegas time, what?).  Luckily, my parents are troopers and knew just how badly I was wanting to see GT and win some money go to the Golden Moose Awards!
Judson was so overwhelmed with the Venetian at 2am. 
I don't blame him.

the next morning, we were all giddy to be back together!!!
lovin' his daddy
p.s. his new hairline is just killing me! so handsome

GT had work to do at SHOT show, so mom and I shopped and walked around the Palazzo and Venetian.
We were ok with that
We stopped often for photos, of course!
smirky smirk

Vegas tough

obligatory solo pose with gondola per mom's request

My mom kept the little guy that night so I could go out with the Buck Commander crew!
I don't think he or she minded one bit!

We ate some delicious grub at Sushi Samba then headed to the Golden Moose Awards
it's always more fun when i'm with my cousin, Korie

We were so excited for Buck Commander winning the Fan Favorite Best Overall Award!!!!
acceptance speech

I am so proud of GT (and all of the guys!) and all of the hard work he has put in for this show
well deserved guys! so proud!

We had a great time listening to Ted Nugent give his speech and perform "catch scratch fever" and just visiting with everyone
I just hate that I didn't get more pictures with the rest of the crew.
oh well, next year....right?

walking back to our hotel after picking JR up from mom and dad's room
even though it was after midnight and we were pushing a stroller...i don't even think anyone noticed.

The Venetian hooked a baby up

Judson LOVES looking in the mirror right now, so we had a grand ole' time in our large bathroom with all of the mirrors

once again. could not have done it without my parents. they are the best!

so, will i ever travel to LV with a baby again?
probably not
was it terrible?
not at all
was it worth it?
absolutely every second

can't wait for next year!
perhaps I'll even put a penny in a slot

happy Thursday
you've made it!
you're on the downhill slide now!

i forgot to share this gem:
the room in which we stayed had 2 beautiful, luxurious, comfortable queen beds covered in beautiful white linens.
JR pooped on one and peed on the other.
have a nice day
