Our trip to Vegas wasn’t exactly as relaxing as I had planned, but we had a great time!

Things I learned during this trip to Vegas:

1. When you’ve seen one casino, you’ve seen them all.

2. Don’t wear BYU gear around Las Vegas after losing to UNLV (unless you feel especially feisty).

3. There are some rare instances when BYU fans cheer for Utah (…only when you really want Utah to beat UNLV).

4. Hard Rock Café is really LOUD…but you can still have your wedding there.

5. If you don’t feel like smelling like smoke, well, you probably shouldn’t go to Vegas.

6. The waitress at Olive Garden treats you like royalty….but the IHOP waitress doesn’t exactly remember you exist.

7. Driving around during rush hour is entirely stupid. You can watch almost all of Transformers and still have only crawled 3 blocks.

8. The zoo in Las Vegas is more like a…well, words really can’t describe it.

9. Parking garages can actually fill up.

10. It’s utterly pointless to argue with drunk people.

Some of my favorite sayings from the local yocals:

“They wouldn’t hold a conference tournament in Provo….who would come?”

“BYU?!? Are you kidding me? Go Rebels!”

“Are you here for the BYU v. UNLV game?”

“What does B-Y-U stand for?”

“Are any of you 21? Oh, nevermind…BYU”

That was probably the best synopsis of our trip I've ever heard! I should copy it and post it on our blog. Don't worry though, our next trip will rock as long as the girls do the planning!!

Sounds like you guys had a busy weekend. I'm glad it was fun though! We missed you at dinner last night. Hope you're feeling better! Also, I need some flickr help from you! :)
