Since we returned home from Vegas I have been dreaming of murals. Painting is almost like a craving for me. Mike always gets nervous when I tell him I want to paint. I guess it would be strange to come home from work and find the walls in your house different colors. Mike was out of town last night so I satisfied painting fantasies. Hope he likes it.

My Marvelous Mother's Day

For Mother's Day this year Mike started a tradition. Mike and the boys make me breakfast for Mother's Day. I really enjoyed this tradition. It was so much fun to watch Mike cook with Tyler. Mike helped Tyler crack the eggs and stir them up. Tyler just kept saying awesome, he loved ever minute. My wonderful breakfast consisted of ham and cheese omelets, cheesy hash browns, and crispy sausage. It was one of the best Mother's Day gifts ever. What a great bunch of boys. Thanks guys for a wonderful day!

We just got back from a family trip to Vegas. We had lots of fun and made lasting memories. Here are a few of the things we did: (1) went to the shark exhibit at Mandalay Bay; (2) pigged out at the buffets at the Bellagio and the Mirage; (3) attended the Excalibur Tournament of Kings dinner/show (Tyler really like the show -- he cheered and pounded on the table; it was fun to see him get so excited); (4) went to the forum shops at Caesar's; (5) stayed the night in a luxury suite at the Venetian; (6) visited Gina, Steve and baby Kate in their beautiful home; and (7) watched the Treasure Island pirate show.
Tyler Jack and Kate at Gina and Steve's house. Playing and making messes.

Tyler, Jack, and me outside the Venetian. The Venetian has gondolas. Guests can ride around the hotel in a gondola. It was very cool.

This is one of the murals in the Venetian that I really like. I might try to duplicate it in my kitchen.

Mike and Tyler at the Forum shops in Caesars. Can you say decadent?

A mural in the Forum Shops. I loved all the murals.

Mike and Tyler at the shark exhibit in the Mandalay Bay.

Tyler touched the sting rays in the shark exhibit at the Mandalay Bay. Tyler was scared he'd fall in the water and end up swimming with the fishes.

Yummy food at the Bellagio buffet.
