That's right, we've already had the giant church wedding and the 350 guest reception with every aunt and uncle from Kookamunga in attendance with the toasts and the first dance and all that hooha and it was fun but this week when we renew our vows were are eloping or re-loping if you will to Las Vegas to do it.
In two days Dan, Ella and I with four other families will be flying to Las Vegas NV. Among the four couples are Grandma and Grandpa D., Mr. and Mrs. Tater Tot, Mr. and Mrs. Dancing Pants along with the Mr. Little Fiddler (age 7) and Mr. Tiny Dancer (age 2), Mr. and Mrs. Punky along with puny Miss Pirate Poohey (age 2). The schedule as I know it so far goes like this. We arrive Thursday afternoon where we pick up our cars and drive to our hotel or rented home (wichever applies). The house is a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, Tuscan style home with a heated pool and Jacuzzi, pool table, foosball table, big screen TV, gourmet kitchen and a mountain range in the back yard. It’s luxury galore 10 minutes from the strip. We’ll do a little grocery shopping and have some dinner and then drop Grandma and Grandpa D. at Cesar’s Palace to see Celine Dion, tickets are first row, first mezzanine. While they are hearing Celine pour her heart and soul out in song we’ll bring Ella downtown to see the Freemont Street Experience. Friday will be a leisurely day of primping, painting, brushing and in general getting on our best fluff in preparation to celebrate my and Dan’s 10th wedding anniversary. At precisely 3:15pm we will all roll up to Graceland Chapel (with the exception of anyone that might be winning large amounts of money at the casino, they are totally excused from the proceeding) and at 3:30pm all will bear witness to a renewal of our wedding vows performed by Elvis. At 3:46pm we will leave for dinner (TBA). The remaining two days left in Las Vegas will be spent no doubt pool side or here or here or here or here or here or here or here or here and maybe even here. Saturday night Ella has a date with Grandma and Grandpa D and I have a date with my husband, I don’t know where Ella and Grandma and Grandpa D. are going but I think we’d like to go to the Peppermill for a drink or two. Sunday we’ll go to the Shark Reef. Monday morning we leave for home hopefully with our pockets stuffed with winnings and a plan to do it again next year.
Yes, I am bringing our laptop, yes I will be posting photos and no, what happens in Vegas will not necessarily stay in Vegas (or at least the best bits will be published, though some names may be changed to protect the guilty.)
