Romantic Getaway

Chad and I had been planning an overnight getaway for July or August, but when Rachel's wedding was announced, we decided it would be fun to spend a night at a hotel while we were in Vegas. We left the kids with Chad's parents after the wedding reception, and headed to the JW Marriott resort. We got an amazing deal, thanks to a police officer discount and the effects of a poor economy! Our standard king room was huge, and the bathroom was awesome: complete with a large jacuzzi tub. When we got there we cranked up the A/C, got in our bathing suits, and went out to the pool. It had been such a hot day, and I felt like I hadn't been cool since I woke up. The pool was so peaceful at twilight, and the water was wonderfully cool. After cooling off, we went to dinner at JC Wooloughans Irish Pub. The atmosphere was so fun. We enjoyed the music of a live Irish band, and ate Corned Beef and Cabbage and Chicken Hibernian. After dinner we may or may not have played a little video poker and Chad might have won $65. In the morning we indulged in a room service breakfast, and then we worked on our "tans" for a couple hours at the pool while I enjoyed a Pina Colada. (I remember my first experience lying by a pool in Vegas--I was amazed at how much a person could sweat not doing anything at all! It was not something I had experienced in Western Washington.) We both had an amazing time, and were pleased with every aspect of our stay. We may not come close to having a weekly date night, but this sort of makes up for it!

Mike had to go to Vegas for business last September and I came down for a couple of days. I couldn't last more then twenty minutes laying out by the pool without getting in. I'm definitely not used to that kind of heat.

Good job going on a getaway! We need to take one of those!
