Kasey, Dani, Sheri, Serenity, & Ryder: Ryder & his cousin Serenity have been missing each other so we planned a rendezvous in Vegas! While this may seem like an odd place to take a 4 and 6 year old... Vegas is almost exactly half way between our Phoenix house and the Nish's Utah house. We found a realatively cheap hotel with plenty of family amenities. While the Orleans was not the most fabulous place I've ever been in Vegas, it worked out just fine for us. We spent 4 days just hanging out and letting the kids get in some quality cousin time.
