countdown vegas!

We love Vegas!  The lights, the energy, the food, the entertainment, and yes, the gambling!  It  feels like another world when you enter ‘the strip’ and sometimes it is nice to just take a break from your daily routine. Together, James and I have been to Vegas twice, and in a few weeks, we are going again with some old (and newer) friends!  (We all happen to be Aggies though!)  In honor of me getting excited about our KID FREE trip, I am posting some past trips…

Spring Break 2002…(We went with some of our college friends, Halim and Jen were some of them!)

When you’re broke, you stay at the Excalibur!

We saw Blue Man Group at the Luxor!  Great show!

We went back to Vegas for our 5 year wedding anniversary! 


We had a little more money, so we moved on up to the Monte Carlo hotel!  😉

Slot machines are not my favorite, but this is


the only place I could sneak a picture in the casino!

We saw Mystere’ Cirque Du Soleil and Hairspray


Both great shows!

James tells me that we are staying at the Bellagio and we are seeing “O” – I am super excited!!! Friends, fun, food, FREEDOM-here I come!!!!! (AND I’m not even going to stress out that the day we fly in from Vegas, it is my sister’s rehearsal dinner for her wedding and my girls are flower girls, Asher is the ring bearer, I’m a bridesmaid, and James a groomsman!) Nope, not me, I never stress! 😉

Look at this lion on the PROWL!!!!
Before trick or treating each year, we have a neighborhood party with all our friends and eat chili!  The most notable thing about this photo is how Rilyn is holding newborn Ivey Peck (4 weeks), and Cole Richardson is lovingly looking on as if they are married and staring at their own child!  Yikes!  Oh, and I guess the Suh kids don’t like group shots!  😉
trick or treat!
Malachi Suh getting the best of Asher!  I foresee a rematch in the near future…


We had a BUSY Halloween!!  To start off, we took a boat cruise down Town Lake (Lady Bird Lake) in Austin.  The cruise was a ‘thank you’ to all the Kidstuff volunteers at our church.  We got to bring our families (Asher stayed behind to nap at a friends), and it was just a relaxing afternoon!  (Well, besides the pirates that visited us…)
