Total Bliss!!!


Seriously could you have a better weekend??? Spending 24/7 with the one you love who is also your Bestest Friend ever, fantastically amazing food, Horses, Lifted Trucks, and a whole lot of Play Time and Rest and Relaxation!!!!
Kip and I went to Las Vegas for our 2nd Anniversary (we also went there for our first anniversary and have decided this might be a tradition??)
So we LOVED our hotel!! We stayed at the South Point Hotel, it is a newer hotel that is about 3 miles down south of the main drag of the strip. PERFECT!!! It felt like the hotel was more suited for families which we liked, being Mormons in Vegas and all! We will be staying there any time we stay in Vegas again due to our amazing experience!
I will just post our pictures, and most of them will explain why this trip was so stinkin perfect for us! (A cruise is still our #1 FAV TRIP but this is following close behind)!
Fantastic, and might I say, Quite Sexy company for me!Which leads perfectly into the next one, our sweet room, with a Hugemungous Bed that makes our little Queen at home look and feel itty bitty!!! LUV IT!!!Check out the view from our room, that pool was so way sweet!!I always appreciate and love a good horse statue, especially when it it this big!But wait, it gets better, the real thing is there too. The hotel has all the amenities for horses and horse lovers! Is there any better place in the whole world???? We got to go in and watch the people riding their horses in the arena. By the way, Western Style is The Best!!! Kip loved how the horses were skidding with their back legs to stop! Yep, you got it, that is part of the hotel! How sweet is that??? They hold Rodeos and and all types of horse events year around! (side note: anybody know when the Norco Rodeo is???)While I was appreciating my favorite form of horse power, Kip fell in LOVE with his favorite form of horse power. Kip says this truck is his dream truck, lifted perfectly, perfect colors, rims, and what not's, he would just upgrade the stereo system and limo tint the windows, but otherwise LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT!!!Another Yep, a movie theater in the hotel!!! We saw a movie the first night, good times!The second night we had a bowling match in the, you got it, hotel bowling alley! We had never bowled together other than Wii bowling. Let me tell ya, Wii bowling does not make you a better "real" bowler. We both were pretty bad at first since it has been years for either of us since the real thing. But by the third game we were both getting strikes! It was a ton of fun. Bowling is going to be a new Robinson event we decided!

Time for the Rest and Relaxation part! O but we had a ton of fun in the pool too! Playing tag, towing one another around, and throwing one another in the air. We most likely looked childish and we LOVED every minute of it!

And then we enter HEAVEN!!! A very favorite part of our trips to Las Vegas is enjoying Cafe Rio, TWICE!!! First trip = Salads, Second trip = Burritos, both trips = SATISFACTION!!!!
It has become tradition to stop by this Honda Dealership after our Cafe Rio trips, why??? I DONNO but we did it last year and this year as well. Back to Kip's type of Horse Power!We viewed my next vehicle that will hold me over till kid #3! It's the Honda Element, made for outdoors folks like ourselves, cool features for sure!We also fell in love with the Hotel's Deli and their Chicken Philly Sandwiches which we enjoyed twice!!! And will be making at home quite often as well now!And the Before Bed Banana Splits that we also enjoyed TWICE!!! They were SO GOOD! Also in the hotel! I tell ya, it rocks! You may be asking, did you even do the strip??? Well we drove down it just so we would feel like we kinda did the strip. We went last year and did the whole strip thing, this year we were never drawn from our car, most likely because everything we needed to make us happy was back at the hotel!
As you can tell, We were sad to leave, especially since it was 3am when we left (when this pic was taken so don't give me a hard time) and we were both headed straight to work from the hotel! YUCK!!! We will miss you South Point but we will be back soon!
Kip and I really needed this trip. We have not been out of town alone together in quite a while. It was so nice to spend so much time together doing things we love! We have decided that this is one of our funnest trips we have taken together thus far! We are grateful for the opportunity we had to do this. VIVA LAS VEGAS!!!!

Katie said...

That looks so fun. I could really use a trip like that.

On a side note...I was looking at old pictures the other day and my four year old is convinced that Kip is a superhero. I asked him why. He just said that Kip looks like a real superhero. And Parker would know. He's WAY into superheros.

Looks like so much fun! Matthew and I did the same thing before we had kids and it was a blast. Different hotel that wasn't as good, but the trip was fun. You'd laugh at us because we did "Mormon" things like visit the ocean spray factory, a clown museum, a cactus farm, & went to the Temple. :)

The Picketts said...

That hotel does rock! Like you said, good hotel for mormons. I always laugh when mormons go to vegas, but you guys make it look so much fun still. I think my fav part is that you guys were playing tag in the pool. I'm sure people thought you were crazy.
