The view from our room

The view at night.

Shelby was so excited to see Samantha!

Last week the whole Steed family went to Las Vegas. I decided last minute that I was going to go down with them so I drove down on Tuesday with the kids and surprised them. When we checked in at the Planet Hollywood towers, they gave us the sweetest room upgrade. He put us on the 2nd to top floor in this awesome suite. We hung out at the pool most of the day on Wednesday and then went to a yummy Italian place called Batistas. That night we walked around the strip and watched the fountains at Bellagio. Thursday morning we went to breakfast and then I packed up the kids and we headed home. I borrowed my mom's car to drive down and the check engine light had came on when I almost reached Vegas. We thought it was probably just the gas cap not on tight, but as soon as I left Vegas it started overheating. I made it to St. George with no air-conditioning on and stopped at a shop. He said that someone had put the wrong transmission fluid in her car. They thought I would make it home, but I shouldn't use A.C. It was death. The temperature was at least 108. A few hours out of St. George, Keaton got heat stoke and started throwing up. The poor guy was bright red and dripping sweat. I made it to a town with one gas station, stripped him down, squirted him with water and let him cool down. Scary. He recovered pretty quickly and we made it home after a bunch of cool down stops. I was so glad to be home!!


Keaton loves this ride

I love this pic with the flowers

2 silly zebras

Tucker was addicted to this 3 point game.
Debby was so sweet to take us to her work Lagoon day again this year. This time, Shelby wanted to go on everything! She was so brave. It was so fun to go on some of the bigger rides with her. Keaton loved to ride all the little rides with Shelby.

Shelby wanted her face painted like her sea lion.

I love fireworks!!

It's time for me to play catch-up from all of our July fun. We had a great time celebrating the fourth. We went to the parade in Clearfield then after went to our traditional breakfast. That afternoon we went over to Tuckers aunt's house for swimming and BBQ. We watched the Clearfield fireworks that night. I love the 4th!!

My parents rented a beautiful cabin at Bear Lake for 4 nights over the 4th of July weekend. Me, Tuck and the kids could only stay one night, because I worked the rest of the weekend but it was awesome! We went up Thursday afternoon and played tetherball(6 grade champ lives on), basketball, ping-pong, Cards and Wii. It was so much fun to have the whole family up there and play with everyone. Friday morning we went boating. It was too windy for the boat but the beach was great. The kids loved the water. Thanks mom and dad for the awesome time! Can't wait to do it again. :)
