Oh Hey. So last week we went to Vegas, we were there for 10 days and it was AWESOME. Usually we only get to spend a weekend in vegas, and even then it is split up between both of our families, so we usually feel unsatisfied with our time spent (not because we don't enjoy it, but because we want it to be longer). But this time, we spent a whole 10 days there, we spent time with my family and with chauncey's family. It was great. The main reason we went was because Andrew (Chauncey's brother) came home from his mission (he went to Japan). But it also worked out because during the week we celebrated my Mom's birthday and my father-in-law's birthday.

 For the first couple days, we were at my parent's house. We went and saw my uncle perform in his band, the Goodfellas. They are sort of like a tribute band, and they play music from the 50s, 60s and 70s. It was really fun to see them perform. I also got carded for ordering a shirley temple. It was kind of silly but we laughed about it. We spent time with my high school buddy, Jared, who just got home from the same mission as Andrew. Monday night my mom, 2 grandmas, aunts, and great aunt went to bingo and guess what!? I won 500 dollars! It was pretty awesome. So with that money, I bought myself an iphone since my plan with my parents was ending this month. So Chauncey and I got our own plan. We feel like grownups now. The rest of the money is going towards a new car for us.

Tuesday Andrew came home. It was a pretty exciting day. The rest of the week was spent with Chauncey's family. We swam, played games, watched movies that came out in the last two years, and did a lot of other fun things. To say the least, it was a very eventful week. We were sad to leave Vegas and come back to the reality of work and school and bills. It was a nice little summer vacation. We will go back in a month for Chauncey's birthday, and I'm already excited.
