Viva Las Vegas!

Josh and I recently returned from Las Vegas. We had so much fun! We visited The Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam while we were there and loved it! I really think it was the highlight of our trip. We had a few obstacles, but nothing too serious. My parents have never flown commercially before and so I knew we would have to slow our pace down for them a little. Everything started out great until our flight was delayed in Pensacola. Our layover in ATL was only an hour, so I got really worried when we were only going to have 20 minutes to get to our next flight. Once we boarded our flight in P-cola it was delayed another 15 minutes and now I knew we would probably miss our flight to Las Vegas. I was constantly telling my parents that we were going to have to RUN to our next flight...(my dad would just smirk at me). We finally landed in ATL and they would not let us off the flight, ultimately missing the flight to Las Vegas (we could have made it to our flight in 5 minutes if they would have let us off :) haha). Anyways, a couple a weeks ago I got a new phone and remembered that I could check flight status' on it. So, i proceeded to do so and behold our flight to Las Vegas was delayed 20 minutes!! Need less to say we made it and directly boarded our flight. YAY! After that stressful (probably only for me) situation, we were stress free for most of the trip. (except my mom broke her toe on the couch in the hotel) :( She was a trooper and didn't let it bother her. Josh and I roamed the strip while my parents gambled most nights. We ate at a couple of the Casinos for lunch and dinner. My dad and Josh really enjoyed their prime rib at Ellis Island. As for me, meat is not my thing right now, which limits me on what I eat. All in all it was a great trip and if your headed to Las Vegas I definitely recommend splurging and going to the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon, it is well worth it! Here are some pics from our vaca...
