Spring Break/Las Vegas

For spring break, we headed down to St. George and Las Vegas. Jayden's parents were so kind to watch Gavin for a night so we could have a night in Las Vegas to ourselves. We drove down on Wednesday and got to Las Vegas around 4:30. We stayed at the New York New York. Once Jayden and I checked into the hotel, we wandered around for a bit on the strip, and then rode the Manhattan Express roller coaster. After our roller coaster ride, we went back to our room to get ready for dinner. We ate dinner at a restaurant called Mon Ami Gabi. It is in the Paris hotel. It was one of the best restaruants that we have ever been to! Jayden claims that his steak was the best steak that he has ever had. I would have to agree with him from the bite that he shared with me. After dinner we headed over to the Bellagio to watch the fountains. The next day we slept in (it was so nice to get a full night of sleep!) and checked out of the hotel. We then went to the Shark Reef at the Mandalay Bay, which was so cool! Jayden loves sharks and there were so many swimming right over top of you. After the shark reef, we went to the Bodies exhibit at the Luxor. We then headed back to St. George where we met up with Gavin and the Garfields. We had a great time in St. George. Some of the highlights from St. George were visiting Brigham Young's house, visiting petroglyphs, a glass lava hill, the Air Show ( a separate post on that later), and going out to eat! Overall, it was a fantastic spring break, and a much needed one too!
