Memorial Fiesta and a New Baby!!

So B and I are headed to the Valley of the Sun, or as I like to refer to it...HOME. My dad wants me to bring my new baby--Ruger!
This isn't my real gun...I'm too lazy to take a pic of it, but it looks just like this. I should be getting my conceal and carry permit any day now and I needed a gun I could use for concealing. I have a 40 cal S&W M&P compact. I do like it but it's not very portable for me (maybe Rambo). Hence "baby Ruger", I also refer to it as my "running gun". I'll need to get a special holster for running but at least it won't pull my shorts off while I'm going down the trail. I'll be damned if I'm going to get violated out on a trail running with my dog by some creeper. Move over pepper spray there's a new kid in town!

Did I ever tell anyone I love my new job and my new boss? This job makes traveling more conducive. Well since we're going to visit my mom and dad for Memorial weekend, we thought we'd squeeze in some Sin City as well.

I'm excited to once again stay a the Flamingo Hotel...
I love that place. It's in the middle of everything. We also reserved the new Go Room...
Well maybe I'll post some pictures of my new car next time!! Hasta luego!!

Family Outing at the Japanese Steakhouse

Last night the crew (aka The Leinen Gang or my in-laws) went to Genji's Japanese Steakhouse for, our nephew, Luke's birthday. For the normal diner, this is no big deal, but for my hubs this is like being in actual Tokyo. As I've stated before, Brian eats like a 5 year old--nothing green, no veggies but corn and potatoes. The rest of his diet consists of meat, cheese and bread. He's a processed food freak! I was so surprised this picky eater actually didn't have to hit the Arby's drive through after dinner. Here is my brother in law Brad with his kids, "Birthday Luke" and Lucy.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Raspberry Genji (although pretty weak). I guess it's raspberry sake, cranberry juice, and a splash of sprite. Yummy.
They apparently like to embarrass you for your birthday with this umbrella for a pic.
B and I after dinner. I'm stuffed from the fabUlous fried rice.
Afterward we went bowling with the kids...well some of the kids are bigger than others.

Brian is working on his form here, I usually just launch it down the way and break a nail in the process. Speaking of nails...I'll be posting about something cool next time. ;-)
