Labor Day Weekend

Last Wednesday we secretly packed up the car and headed for Las Vegas. My mom’s 50th birthday was on Thursday, and for the last two months we’ve been planning with my Dad to come down and surprise her.

The first two nights, we stayed at the Four Seasons hotel (amazing, as you can imagine…and a screaming deal since they were totally empty for the few days before labor day weekend), and the rest of the time we spent with my parents at their house.

Here’s a few photos of our weekend. Also, I’d just like to mention that this was the last trip of our summer. After traveling nearly non-stop for the entire summer, I’m so glad to be home again for many months, back in a normal routine, and not eating like a total pig.

    Your son is quite possibly the most adorable little thing. Especially in that bathrobe and his grandfather's glasses on another post. Just so cute.
