Thriller and Mystere Here We Come...

Mike and I were so excited to go to St. George and see Thriller at Tuacahn! We drove down to Cedar City on Friday morning and met up with Candace and baby Ty and went to lunch at The Pizza of my favorites when I went to school in Cedar! It was really great to see Candace, Luke and Ty! They were gracious enough to let us crash at their house Friday night! Thriller was really fun but not what we were really expecting. It was really fun to see all of the characters and dances but some of it was a little bit different and a little weird...but we had an awesome time! I loved watching the zombies sneak up on people and scare them...but Mike does not enjoy being scared, and he didnt love the zombies so much!

( My camera was having issues taking pictures in the dark, so all my zombie pictures came out blurry...but it kind of gives the zombies an even "creepier" look!)

***After our really fun night in St. Geroge, we woke up early Saturday morning and drove 2 1/2 hours to Las Vegas! We were really excited because we havent been to Las Vegas since our honeymoon almost three years ago! We know that Vegas is known for being dirty, evil, nasty, a party place....etc....but Mike and I love the warm weather there, we love all of the fun shows...and we love to just walk around and see all of the cool things. The Bellagio is one of my favorite casinos, they have the prettiest lobby ever! Every season they change their lobby for the season! I am in love with fall this year and their lobby was amazing! We saw 'Mystere' at Treasure Island while we were there! It is a Cirque Da Soleil show where the performers do things such as the trapeze, jumping and tumbling, muscle man tricks....and the list goes on and on! It was the coolest show I have ever seen, not to mention we had amazing seats! It was a really fun night! We also enjoyed the warm 80 degree weather, the yummy buffets....and just relaxing! We had such a good time and we are so glad that we took a little "mini vacation"....because who knows where life may take us in the next couple of months!!!

P.S. I am still learning how to add pictures to my be patient with me...I will eventually figure out how to do this!!! ENJOY!

Fall is in the Air!

Well, as you can see I have not been very good at keeping up with this blogging business! I still cant figure out how to make our blog "cute"...but at least I can post a blog! This weekend we were able to go to the Flake family cabin with Mike's family! We had so much fun 4 Wheeling, playing basketball, playing board games, and just relaxing! This was probably the last cabin trip before snow it was fun to go up one last time before snow mobile season....Mike's favorite time of year! The leaves were all starting to change color, so needless to say it was beautiful up there this weekend! Here are a few pictures from this weekend...and a few of past cabin visits as well! Happy Fall!!!

Mike LOVES flying his new radio control helicoptor, thanks to Uncle Joel! Mike flies the helicoptor outside and in our living room (because there always seems to be too much wind outside)!

Tonight, after returning home from our cabin we got some horrible news that my cousin Kara and her husband had been in a car accident last night. Kara's husband, hutch, did not survive the accident, he will be truly missed. Kara did survive with some minor injuries. Although Mike and I never did get the opportunity to meet Hutch, our thoughts and prayers are with Kara and her family tonight! We love you Kara and Hutch!
