Las Vegas Wedding

     Manny and I keep leaving Vegas and saying we'll never be back, but we keep finding ourselves there (ha!). 4 days after coming home from Chicago, we packed up the car and headed to Las Vegas for Manny's brothers' wedding. We had a blast, but it was an exhausting weekend....especially with 2 little kids.
     We left Friday morning and arrived in Vegas just in time for a 2 pm rehearsal. After the rehearsal, we ate a late lunch at one of our favorite restaurants, the Cracker Barrel, and then checked into our hotel. We stayed at the Silverton Resort and Casino which was perfect for us and very kid friendly. The Silverton has a small aquarium, which Gabriella LOVED! We even got to see them feed the Sting Rays. Bass Pro Shops is attached to the Silverton and was fun to walk through/let Gabriella run through and get some energy out. She does always love the fish tanks at Bass Pro Shops so she was thrilled to see those.
     Saturday was the BIG day! The wedding wasn't until 7 pm so we ate breakfast at the Cracker Barrel and then headed to the Strip in the morning to walk around a little and go to my beloved Sprinkles cupcakes. We also took Gabriella to the garden in the Flamingo to see some of the fish, flamingos, waterfalls etc. #shecouldhavecaredless

    We spent the afternoon getting ready (me), napping (the kids), and watching football (manny) before we headed to the chapel at 5 pm. Once we got to the chapel, both kids fell apart.

     The wedding ceremony was beautiful and perfect. Gabriella did great walking up the aisle and even climbed on the stage when she saw me. I had a death grip on her during the ceremony so she wasn't disruptive. And then there was sweet Madden....he cried through the ceremony which meant the family member holding him also missed the ceremony.

     We had 2 crabby kids at the start of the reception but Madden soon fell asleep and once the dancing started, Gabriella turned into a different person. She loved it!

     We are so excited for Manny's brother and our new sister-in-law! Beautiful wedding and beautiful couple! Until next time Las Vegas...
