we are family, vegas style

we left our so fancy parking lot spot on the strip and headed north about 30 miles to my brother’s neighborhood. we fit perfectly right in front of his house.

i think i look a tiny bit afraid in this photo! matthew is 4 and morgan is 9. man, do they have some energy. and the ability to talk. and talk. and talk! it was fun hanging out with them for a couple of day. they treated me like a rock star 🙂 23

cory, my brother, treated us to some target practice. 30

this what i look like when i don’t shave32

i’m adding this photo, well, because it’s funny. it was really, really windy. my hair looks dorky. hell, i look dorky! we had a blast!35

cory works at nellis air force base, so we got to take a trip to the commissary. we also rode around base. i’ll be honest, i was looking for the hot shirtless guys playing volleyball, you know, like the scene from top gun. i never did find them. bummer. but we found some cool military machines. and the jets were flying around, so cory got us basically on the runway to watch. how cool. i like loud jets. especially the pilots 😉 81
