So HOW COOL IS THIS???
My sister and I share this deep, deep LOVE for this restaurant called Cafe' Rio that we used to eat at all the time when we lived in Provo, UT.
Well recently they opened a restaurant down in Las Vegas, this being the closest Cafe' Rio to us. My husband and I got to visit this wonderful place on our one year anniversary while up in Vegas celebrating. But my poor, poor sister has not had Cafe' Rio in 4 years!!!
Well to make a long story short, my sis is prego at the moment and has had intense cravings for this wonderful food to the point where it has left her teary eyed (ask her, no exaggeration on my part), SO her husband has the week off of work and they decided to make a day trip up to Cafe' Rio just to eat there for lunch and dinner.
I was blessed enough to be able to hitch a ride up there as the babysitter and entertainer of Makenna (my little niece who is a total joy to my life). NO PROBLEM FOR ME!!! My little Bro David came along as well. We left at 6am, got to Vegas and ate Lunch right away (a salad for lunch) then walked the strip for a few hours in the 108% weather and back to Cafe' Rio for dinner (a burrito this time) and takeout to bring home to our family! I got back home that night at 12:30am. What a day, and boy was it worth the drive with a 22 month old!!! She was a champ by the way!!!
I also have to mention that little Makenna ate her food there better than she has eaten in a really, really long time, and Amanda said that Kellen was doing flips for hours after her meal as well. Apparently the love runs in the blood. We are so proud!
Here are some of the pics!!! Me in the car just thinking about what I am about to eat!!!! Can you tell I am just a little excited???
The woman and the baby to thank for the cravings that inspired this heavenly trip!
I stole Makenna's hat, ok so she dropped it and I decided it looked good on me instead. What do you think?
Lookin like a big girl, and diggin the caffeine!
Both of us coming down from our caffeine rush on the way home, can you tell we are pooped from the long fun day?
