las vegas, part 2

have i mentioned?    it was 115.    onehundredandfifteen.     as in, degrees.     outside.
we read online that the record is 117- which all things considered, is practically the same thing. when it's 115, what's another 2 degrees? i mean the car must have been 120, right? 
ugh, death. i'm never eating rotisserie chicken again- i feel for those chickens! when the wind blows at 115 degrees, all you want is for the wind to stop blowing. it makes everything worse! 
i opted not to lug around my camera for most of the trip, so photos are kind of sparse. 
also, day tres was no bueno. 
we went to the grand lux after a morning at the pool, i ate a little, then started to get siiiiiick. i had to sit on a mannequin at the nike outlet... then lay on the ground. it was a pretty picture, let me tell you. 
i spent the rest of the day trying not to hurl and/or spin out of the universe. thankfully, i was coincidentally ill at the same time as when the US played in the world cup. (i think mike poisoned me.) actually, i think i may have had sunstroke? i wasn't sweating at all, and before long my entire body was twitching and aching... anyway, we had tickets to ka (free!) that night, so i drug myself into the evil sun and we had a nasty meal at rainforest cafe, followed by a lovely show of ka! (i sat on many a random floor to rest and stop spinning in between.) oh, we also pit-stopped at the m&m store just so i could tell elle we went to the m&m store.    true story. 
our last full day, i woke up feeling a lot better. we went to the pool at 8am, hid in the shade, and left after an hour. (no chance i wanted a repeat of day tres.)
apparently the pool was the only place i brought my camera.  can you tell? :)
oh! we then went to the temple- it's been waaaaaaaay too long since we've gone together. it was great to not feel rushed, and to just enjoy some peace and quiet.
that afternoon we tried the outlets again (much better! no laying prostrate on the ground in a dress, thankfully), and had dinner at blt burger. we rested up and hit the strip for the evening. it was so nice to just hang out the two of us- we missed our babies of course, but we loved our time just the two of us again- it's been a while! we also ate two frrrrozen hot chocolates at two different times that day. we may or may not have spent $40 on 3 total during the trip. should i admit that? we never even spent $40 on a single meal our entire time in vegas, but spent FORTY DOLLARS on chocolate drinks. 
our last morning i woke up feeling really sick once again. we tried for the (shade and) pool, but alas,  decided it wasn't wise. mike wanted one more trip to serendipity before checking out.
on the drive home we tried not to bake in the car, survive the traffic, and also not careen into the back of that bus. ^^ WHO makes a bus look like the landscape? very confusing when you've been in the car 5 hours, let me tell you;) if it wasn't for the overcast sky, we would have been in trouble!

thanks to our families from the bottom of our full hearts and tired feet- our babies hardly knew we were gone (did they know we were gone?). we are so appreciative of their willingness to wrangle for days, and love our kids almost as much as we do.
