I went to Wendover this weekend for some gambling and Joe Diffie. It was great! I tried to pretend that it was a super sweet road trip but Braden kept ruining my fun by telling me that it was only 100 miles or whatever it is and couldn't be classified as a road trip. Like always we took way too many treats. I'm pretty sure we only ate like one thing out of probably 20. I think that Braden and I ate a whole package of E.L. fudge cookies all by ourselves. We tried to blame it on Jenilyn but I really don't think she even ate one cookie. Between the three of us gamblers I think that we lost 22 dollars, not too bad, but I definitely lost the majority of it. I lost 15 all by myself! But it was definitely worth it! After the gambling we went back home to the hotel and stayed up for a few hours talking. Braden informed us quite a few times that he stayed up and slept in later than he has in a very long time!

The main event!

We ate dinner at the local West Wendover Pizza Hut because we weren't sure that we could stomach any of the casino buffets!

Me, Annie, and Braden waiting for Joe to come out!

Finally! The moment that we have all been waiting for! Joe Diffie! Although he is about 20 years older and quite a few pounds heavier than we were expecting him to be, he still was great!

Parker Diffie! Joe's son who thought that he was the main event. This is the expression that he had on his face during the whole concert!

We are on a Joe Diffie high! And we are also pretty sure that we are the only normal people in all of West Wendover.

And here is the proof of that!

Jenilyn is not yet 21 so she had to stay back at the hotel and have a House and Dirty Jobs marathon while we were out partying. Sad.

Annie really wanted to become a good passenger food preparer so she spent the whole ride home practicing by making Brado some fry sauce and also by dipping his egg role and then feeding him bites. We decided that he is a lot like Colton, when he wanted another bite he would just tilt his head and open his mouth.

All in all it was a great trip! Thanks for inviting me guys! We will definitely
have to do it again soon!

Just starting out...

I know, I know. I have always said that I am so against people without husbands and/or babies having a blog. But... I have changed my mind. I am such a blog stalker that I just had to join in! Hopefully I will have interesting enough stuff to blog about.
