We were able to take a week long vacation to Vegas and St George for father's day weekend. We left Tuesday night for St George. We got there unpacked and  relaxed. Wednesday we went swimming all day it was hot and fun! Dax tried Floaties and loved them. It was definitely something new for him. After we all took a afternoon nap and went to Swig when we woke up from our Naps came home had dinner and watched T.V. Thursday we drove down to St George walked around target bought a few things John got a haircut and we walked around the mall. Came home went swimming and BBQ. After we napped watched all showered. John Dax and Steve went to home depot and family fun center and went go cart racing and water boats. John said they had an amazing time. Georgia and I went to a Relief Society activity and dinner. We made outfits for stillborn babies it was humbling.After I drove home packed up our stuff and relaxed.

 We arrived in Vegas Friday Morning. We stopped at my parents and unloaded our stuff. Grabbed Stephen and headed to the movies. Luckily we got there earlier and there was even an earlier time to see Inside Out! Dax saw the previews back in April and had been begging us to see it ever since. Dax would always say See my Show! It was adorable. We got there and it was crowded because it was the Premiere but we we're excited nonetheless. We had our candy in my purse, John grabbed us an Slurpee and water and we we're good to go. Dax sat all by himself and loved it! He never went out and walked around or fell asleep in previous movies so this was a success. He laughed and talked and was his usual self! It was so fun to see him so Happy. After we went to the mall in Henderson and shopped and had lunch. After we went back to my parents napped and Dax went swimming and played with Penny. John and I left shortly after and went out for our anniversary. It was so HOT in Vegas. I was honestly miserable. When we got home the power was out! I wanted to die! It was so hot. Luckily it came on maybe 20 minutes later. We hung out all night and I helped Jaclyn pick out her favorites for her Engagements. Later that night we went to bed. Saturday morning we went to Target and walked around. We bought curtains for Daxton and McKenzie's room. We stopped and got Jack in the Box. One of my favorites. They don't have in Utah. When we got home I got ready for my Baby Shower. That was really fun. After we hung out and stayed home. Sunday was Fathers Day. We went to sacrament and then had a family lunch.

McKenzie's Ballernia Baby Shower June Vegas 2015

Saturday June 20th I had my Vegas baby shower and It was So hot that weekend in Vegas they even had a extreme heat warning. My dear  sweet friend Angela Hosted and threw me a beautiful ballerina baby shower last weekend in Vegas. It was HOT! I was surrounded by family and close friends. We played a few games which were having a clothespin and you can't say Baby the whole time you are at the shower and whoever does has to give their pin away. A lot of people were good at it and others we're horrible. It was funny and entertaining. The next game was picking out safety pins out of a bowl filled with rice. The last was an original game. It had Mckenzie full name spelled out and you had to spell as many words as possible. My step sister Shelby won that game. She came up with 37 words! We ate and chatted. It was very relaxing and low key. Opening up McKenzie's presents was so much fun. It finally felt real like I was having a little girl. She is set on her newborn wardrobe that is for sure! Loved getting her bedding from Grandma Toni. McKenzie even got 2 new pairs of shoes! They we're adorable! It was fun to celebrate her and how excited we are for her to join our family. We had yummy food Fruits and Veggies, Chicken Salad Croissant's sandwiches, a bundt cake and cupcakes. I appreciate everyone coming and showing their support. The decoration's we're adorable. From the pretty Pink TuTu wreath to the Pink and Gold mason jars. I loved it and appreciate everyone coming and showing their support for our sweet McKenzie. McKenzie got her newborn wardrobe all set it finally made it seem Real that we were having a GIRL. Getting cute headbands and little shoes we're adorable. It was overwhelming and wonderful. You only get baby showers once in your life and I definitely cherish them . I didn't share all the pictures just a few that I wanted to and with friends and family that I adore.
