Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hello from the Eiffel Tower!! Nearly every year we go to visit Foote's grandparents in St. George for Thanksgiving or around that time, and seeing the Las Vegas is just a short drive from there we usually take a day and go see the sites. Last year Foote took Alyson and I to the Top of the World for dinner in the rotating restaurant atop the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino more than 800 feet above the Las Vegas Strip.

I had to laugh when I was looking at this picture of Aly and I from last year. It is just funny to think how fast things change I am almost five months pregnant in this picture and completely clueless that I am expecting and now a year later Brooklyn is here and almost six months old.

This year it was a trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower overlooking the Bellagio fountains as well as the rest of the strip. Footes parents were with us so they watched a fountain show with the girls while Foote and I were on the Eiffel Tower watching the sun set.

We spent a lot of the day seeing all the sites. The girls made it about half the day and just crashed hard. I know that I have blogged previously about the strange places that Aly can fall asleep, but this one takes the cake she fell asleep on grandpa's shoulders while checking out the atrium at the the Bellagio.

Apart from the Vegas trip, we had a great time with Deem and Bammer(Thats what all the grand kids call Foote's grandparents). We took a couple walks each day in the warm weather, mostly to put the girls to sleep.

And Aly made a couple new friends, A frog that croaks when you walk in front of it, and a plastic Rhino. She loved the frog, she would sing to it, tuck it into bed and rock it to sleep, try to feed it, then try to change its diaper. She and her little frog became inseparable. Too Cute!!

Oh my gosh - Brooklyn is getting sooo big. Cute pictures. Sounds like you had a great time. Brad and I have only been to Vegas once but really liked it. Some people think were crazy and what could we like about Vegas. But I totally want to go back. You have given me some good ideas. We stayed at the Stratosphere one night on the way to California and didn't get out to see anything else.

Looks like fun. We love spending time in St. George over Thanksgiving. We will be going next year, we should meet if you do.

I thought about calling you when we were going to see if you would be there. Sorry we missed you. We will definitely have to meet up next year if we go again.
