Our first day I here I kind of went a little crazy and I think everyone knew to stay away because I would either burst into tears or snap at them. Our electricity and gas weren't on and although we got power the next day (Thursday), we didn't have gas (hot showers/baths, the dryer, the dishwasher) until Monday. When combined with the fact that my whole life was in boxes and I was in an unfamiliar place, this was devastating to me. The days passed quickly though and we had a great time with my mom and Aunt Robin who were here when we arrived and helped us through those first few days. And you know how those first few days are!
We ate out a lot and ate on the floor a lot.
I am so in love with the enclosed backyard. The kids are in heaven back there, and they make huge messes, but they are fun, creative messes and it keeps them busy.
One night we had dinner at the Cannery Casino buffet and they had food representing all different parts of the world. Always the best part of a buffet though...the unlimited soft serve ice cream.
So far I actually think the weather is nice. It's REALLY bright and warm, but not too hot yet. I am basically going to be going through my last trimester in the hottest place ever. You will hear lots of complaining about the heat soon enough.
Something else I am loving...this room on the main floor that will be a playroom. We cut the legs of our old kitchen table and the kids use it now. I'm so glad to have a place for the toys besides the living room!
And the best part about Vegas? The Comins are here! We had dinner together yesterday and it was so nice to be with people we are comfortable with. Nate and I always joke that when we move somewhere new we have to "date" the other couples and see who is a good match for us. It was nice to just be with old friends instead of starting all over and "dating" right away.
I am realizing I have to drink a lot out here. The first few days I did not feel well (threw up one night but I think that was because avocadoes and I don't get along) and I kept telling Nate I just didn't feel right and I realize now I was not drinking enough. Gotta stay hydrated!
Here are the kids in my mom's hotel watching an outdoor concert. Yes, Las Vegas is a skanky little town.
