Part one of our trip: Las Vegas

Early Saturday morning, Dec. 22nd we began the first leg of our trip. We originally were just going to drive straight to Utah on Sunday but since Andy had the weekend off we decided to go up a day early and stay with Andy's hilariously awesome cousin, Jenny. So basically, one of my fondest dreams came true. I got to hang out with Jenny at "the place". Believe it or not it was even better than I could have ever imagined. We had an awesome time hanging out with everyone. We got to see Jenny, Anthony, Tom, Katie & Erin. It was my first time meeting everyone but they were so nice to me that it felt like we had been long time friends. We all went out to dinner which was great. Her boys were so sweet and nice to Evelyn and she definitely enjoyed hanging out with them. While we were there we couldn't resist getting our pictures taken with the famous fireplace and we also got to participate in one of Jenny's amazing videos. Check it out!

The next morning we packed up and headed back out. On the way there we had to drive through Mesquite so we decided to take a detour. Andy's Great Great Grandparents, William & Mary Jane Abbott, were the founders of Mesquite so at the City Hall there's a monument built in their honor. It was such a great opportunity to stop by and take in a bit of family history.
