Lazy Saturday

It's not often that we get to have a lazy Saturday.  I know that with school around the corner the weekends will fill up fast with activities and sleepovers.  I mean who am I kidding, even though its a lazy Saturday I still have 4 girls here snoozing.  I think I heard dancing and giggling about 2 a.m.  Macy is all about sleepovers and girlfriends.  I love that.  I'd be lost without my best girls.  She takes after her momma.

Macy had volleyball camp this week at our high school and she had a blast.  She went with her two BFF's so that made it more fun.  She has played club for the last few years and this year wasn't feeling it and didn't tryout.  I was sad.  She had lost the love for the game.  But, after camp, I think she's loving it again.  I'm glad because its just in time for school tryouts.  I think mostly she's confused about what she should do for high school.  It's sad they have to know what they want to do at age 13.  I mean, really!  She tends to be a worry wart.  She takes after her momma.

Reid has had a summer job and he's really liking it.  At first he was not to sure about it because its retail and anyone who knows my boy, knows he's a quiet and shy one.  Of course, since it's retail  there is a lot of interaction with know customer service.....and he wasn't too sure about that.  But, it has been so good for him!  He has really done a great job and we are so proud of him.  And he loves that paycheck, too.  There is even little chatter about him being Employee of the Month.  Well, you know, I did work retail in my younger days and I loved it.  Except for returns.  ha!  I guess, he takes after his momma.

We hopped a plane and went on a whirlwind Las Vegas trip.  One of my dear friends Jen got married to the sweetest guy.  Her and Braden are a gorgeous couple and just perfect for each other.  She was the most beautiful bride and I was so honored to be a part of her big day.  She had a beautiful wedding outside in the Venus Gardens at Caesars Palace.  It was a perfect day with wonderful people.  I loved getting to spend time with her getting ready and celebrating her big day. I have known Jen for almost 18 years and her sweet servant heart and kind spirit are one of the reasons I love her so.....  She deserves all the happiness in the world!

So, while we were in Vegas, we had to make a family vacation out of it.  We like to call ourselves the Griswolds.  We had a blast and saw some really interesting people and places.  I'm so glad we got to share this trip with the kids.  We had so much fun together.  I love my family and am so thankful for every minute we get to spend together.  Now, I did have to hide Macy's eyes a few times from the crazy people on the Strip and Freemont Street.  ha!  She was cracking up.  Reid took a picture with some Showgirls so I'm thinking that was the highlight of his weekend.  It cost me 6 bucks.

We also got to take a tour of the Hoover Dam.  It was perfect.  Well, hot, but perfect.  I think it was 118 degrees that day.  We loved the Bellagio water fountain.  We walked past it all the time because it was next to our hotel.  Everytime we passed it we watched it like it was the first time.  We got to eat on top if the stratosphere and that was really neat.  I'm not a fan of heights but I took one for the team.  There are a few rides on top of it and I think everyone who rode those have to have a screw loose!  It looked terrifying!  Even Reid said no...whew!  He did do the zip line over Freemont Street and he rode the rollercoaster on top of New York, New York.  You couldn't pay me enough to do that.  He's a little daredevil.  I am a chicken.  So, on that, he does not take after his momma!

So, thats a wrap for today.  Happy Saturday!
