viva las vegas!

i am usually behind in blogging, but this time i blame Blogger.  it's been totally slow and annoying so, i have therefore not taken the time to blog.  that being said, here is a run down of our trip to Las Vegas.

State Farm had it's national convention in Vegas.  every single agent in the company converged on the town for one week.  we we're assigned to stay at the Wynn!  lucky us!  the resort is among the best i have ever stayed at worldwide.  i loved it!  i guess most the time they are not considered "family friendly", but since many state farm agents were bringing their families, it was a perfectly pleasant place for us. 

we enjoyed many poolside hours.  and i did okay with the 4 kids on my own!

 Dad joined us for a little Venetian time.  and this is how Bubba enjoyed most of his vacation:
 this is the girls' favorite part of Las Vegas, "the singing princesses."  and since I love opera, i am happy to come to as many "shows" as they like.
 i love this picture, Madeline is Bubba's biggest fan and cuddle buddy.  i think it's so cute that the girl who dreamed of having a baby brother named Colin takes so much time to bask in that dream come true. 
 Daddy chose the room at the top of the hotel.  we had a sweeping view!
 on the last night, State Farm put on a massive vegas-styled party for all of us.  we were bused to an arena with a huge carnival culminating into a concert! 

 there were games, performers, photo ops and food galore! 
 and they got to see Lightning McQueen!  thanks to State Farm sponsoring Cars 2. 
 Bubba loved his glow necklace! 
fun was had by all.  i was cracking up at all the stares and comments i got cruising the streets of Vegas with 4 kids in tow.  i was a Vegas freak show.  at first i was taken back, like i should rein it in and keep to myself.  then i thought, you know what we are no freakier than that tatted up, rollerskating Cher look-a-like tranny!  good times!
