Jessica and I had the very best time in VEGAS together. We got to go for 5 nights! Some people would argue that may be too long in Vegas, but I beg to differ, it was perfect.
Jessica surprised me by upgrading us to first class! So fun!
According to her the drinks were too strong so she made me drink them all, I'm helpful like that.
Our rental car,
Super awesome late night cheap breakfast right next door!
Our yummy breakfast of champions
We went on a healthy shopping spree. We loved the little friendly grocery store down the street. I was sure we would never drink all that liquor, hahahaha
Sister time is the best!!
Drunk shopping, so fun!
And then "home" for the main event. We got to meet our brother, what a shocking turn of events that ended up being such a blessing. The whole family is just so great!!
Me, Bill, Misha, Jessica, Celeste and Josiah. Our new nieces and nephew!!
We had the best time getting to know each other, they are such lovely people!
Out to brunch / crazy time share hard sell. Remind me to say no to these things always. On the right is Alicia and Legend, super sweet family friends of Bill, loved them both.
Pool party at the Palms
Anthony, the family's good friend & local DJ, he was super entertaining.

Ready to go out on the party bus for Jessica's birthday!
Ran into Shirley and Jenni in the bar!! Such a small, awesome world!
Jessica found a few other friends on the strip.
The infamous sign, the party bus took us here for a photo between night clubs.
Our very favorite spot to eat. I think we ended up at this awesome sushi place 3 times!
More fun with the family! Their stay was short but so great!
I love coffee. It's my no-sleep best friend.
Our "awesome buffet" we were told to "come hungry for" so tricked! Again, no timeshare presentations please!!
