Toto, I don't think we're in Vegas

Ya so, we're NOT in Vegas. I had high hopes of being able to go, but when it came down to feeding everyone for 5 days, and GAS... it was a no! And those are only two reasons...I won't bore you with the two pages I put together last week! :)

I did decided though, since we were already planning to be gone yesterday, we would stick around town, and stay in a hotel. I picked Crystalinn, cuz they have free hot breakfast, and there was one close to what we wanted to do today. I had coupons for Holly-wood Connection(an indoor amuzment park for cheap people) to get all of us in free. The kids had a BLAST, and as always LOVE going to a hotel. DH, had to work, since he was in town, so just the kids and I went. It was SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper than driving to Vegas, and closer(15 minutes), and they had a ball. Isn't that what counts!? Of course we didn't get to go to the conference, but we still spent time together.

We took TONS o pictures, but I need to get on a different computor, so it will have to be tomorrow. I just didn't want to world to think we were in Vegas, when we are sitting on our butts, in Utah! :)

Get excited for pictures.......... :)

I think we saw you driving yesterday on 2-15, and now I am sure because you took the 35th south exit. How funny! Sounds like you had fun.

HEY I want to be sitting on my butt in Utah!!! ;) Did you see my sister?!?! She is the hotel manager there! They do have awesome rooms!

We're not there either. I am supposed to be packing right now. Instead I am checking out your blog (gulp).

Glad you guys can have some much needed down time.

We had to cancel our trip to Vegas too, stupid cancer that takes all my money to go on a trip to Colorado for everybody but me. :( That sounds like tons of fun, we went to Hollywood connection, Kade does not do good there, too much sensory stimulation. But the other two loved it. Glad you had fun anyways.

We really missed you in Vegas. I looked for you guys at registration and then though - hey must be running late. Then my Monday I knew you probably weren't coming. Glad to hear you guys had fun at a hotel and Hollywood. Kids are really happy anywhere you go. We missed you though! Conference was fun - another great year! Always next year.

Hey Jenny!
How are you? I've been reading all of the yahoo group stuff and your blog, I just always seem to have a babe in my arms, so I haven't really had a chance to comment.
I was just reading your post about Jack's Dr.'s appointment...He sounds so cute! I would love to meet him in person sometime.
I remember when I was pregnant with Parker they kept telling us all of this stuff that was wrong with him, and they kept trying to place all of these syndromes on him. I finally just wanted to scream "just tell me something that is right with him!! We will love him no matter what!" It's so frusterating to have Dr.'s keep telling you all of this crap when you already know there are problems and there is not a whole lot you can do about it. I think Jack is so stinking cute and lovable. I always worry about comments that kids will make to my boys when they are older...about their lips or nose or how they talk. I guess that I just have to instill in them a knowledge of how much we love them and how much Heavenly Father loves them.
Good luck with everything, and hang in there. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you!


P.S. How do you know Laura Jansson?
