las vegas

we flew down to las vegas on wednesday night for a convention for ben's job. we just got back tonight. it was a fun trip. ben works in the same company as his dad so his parents came as well. these pics may not look like they did any work, but they really did :). during the day the guys had the convention, & at night we were all able to go around and have some fun.
we drove to a place called, 'red rock park' thursday evening. you can't tell, but the rocks were really red and pretty... we ate at a seafood buffet at the rio one night. it was a really nice buffet. their desserts were too cute, i had to get a picture. hehe :)..you definitely have to look for the good while in vegas...well, there are nice places there (we LOVE the las vegas temple for instance, & were bummed we weren't able to make it this trip). it's mainly the strip that defines, 'SIN city'. ben hates going down there for these conventions once a year because of all the filth (the convention center is right on the strip). but, we tried to make the best of it & actually had a really good time. one of my favorite things to see there...the fountain shows at the bellagio. so pretty!...larry & darla during dinner at the cheesecake factory last night. the food was really good...i loved my salad and pasta... the huge fish tank in the atlantis section of cesars palace...it was an enjoyable trip, but as always..we're so happy to now be home with our little guys! thanks SO MUCH mom for watching them!
