Las Vegas Bowl

Last Saturday BYU played U of A in the Las Vegas Bowl. Unfortunately, we lost and it wasn't how we'd hoped to end the season. But the overall trip to Vegas was a blast! We stayed at the Planet Hollywood right on the strip. The team had practice, meetings, and film during the day, so it allowed the wives plenty of time for shopping, eating, more shopping, more eating, and more shopping! ha!! But at night, we were able to spend time with our hubbies. Everyone went to the show Stomp Out Loud, which was amazing & very very loud! And a few of us went to Steve Weirick's Magic show another night. There were a few luncheons and dinners that the Bowl put on that we got to attend as well. Here's a sneak peak of our fun week:

The Water Show at the Bellagio....I think this is everyone's favorite thing to see/do.


Outback Steakhouse hosted a dinner for both teams at Freemont Street. Dinner was outside, in the middle of the street! A bit chilly. Our friends Kellen & Sarah Fowler.....we had so much fun with these guys. They took us to the most amazing Creperia at the Paris hotel where we indulged in dinner & dessert crepes.
Me, Sarah, and Lyndsey BaumanThe night before the game the team moved to the Ritz Carlton Lake Las Vegas Hotel. So Saturday morning before the game, Brett's family and I went to visit him real quick. The hotel was amazing, looked like an Italian Villa. And we just happened to run into Santa outside.
Of course, the one thing that would have made this trip even better would have been for BYU to win. But I'm glad Brett and I were able to have a fun week together. I'm especially glad to have a little break from football, the traveling, and finally having some weekends together again! And then on the other hand....I'm already excited for next season:)

Yea! I'm SO glad you guys had fun! Eli chanted throughout the game "Go, go BYU, show me, show me 92!" He thought he was pretty cute. Both he and Kya loved seeing Brett on tv, and hearing his name. Those dinner and deserts crepes in The Paris are SOOO good! I can still taste them!:)
