Exciting Three Day Get-together in Vegas

Last weekend we were invited out-of-town by a friend’s girlfriend to surprise him on his birthday in Vegas. She had paid for our hotel stay, all we had to do was say yes and join them in Vegas for a surprise birthday celebration. I should note, were weren’t actually in “Las Vegas” we stayed in Henderson. 

We left on Friday right after my son got out of school and drove from Flagstaff AZ all the way there. Got there in enough time to unload our bags and surprise Chris, the birthday boy in the elevator at the hotel. He had no idea we were coming! He loved that we were there, but it wasn’t the biggest of the surprises. Three other people were joining in on the birthday celebration. Jenna had arranged for Chris’s parents to come out and she flew her daughter in from Phoenix to join in on the fun. 

We spent lots of time just hanging out and eating, but on Saturday we went go-cart racing at the Mini Gran Prix Family fun center. We had a blast racing go-carts. Its was a lot fun, and Jenna and her daughter Rachel even took our boys for a little while so Scott and I could do some go-cart racing without having to worry about kiddos. 

I am very appreciative of that!!

I’m also grateful for our accommodations Jenna paid for, she even paid for our meal at Chevy’s Mexican restaurant and our tickets for go-carting. It was so incredibly nice for her to invite us to Vegas and pay for things that would have made things difficult coming up since we are continuing the roofing of our house on Wednesday this week and a whole lot of money will be leaving our bank account that day. 

I’m very blessed for thoughtful friends like her and Chris.

Sunday morning we got up, ate breakfast together in the hotel lobby and heading back home. 

How was your weekend?
