Vegas Roundup

I know, I know. I promised to be a better blogger. Things have just been crazy around here. But here are pictures and details from Las Vegas, as promised.

Yep, we finally made it to Vegas.
Emily did really well at the meet. She placed 4th on vault, 7 on floor and 9th all-around. Considering the amazing gyms that were there, she did awesome. And I am happy to say this is her last time ever competing as a level 6/compulsory gymnast. She is competing 7 next month.

Here is Em and 4 of her fellow teammates. Or should I just say "sisters". These girls spend so much time together in the gym that they really do become family. It was cool getting to watch them bond even more over the 4 day trip.
New York New York hotel. Emily loved the roller coaster so much she rode it twice (for a mere $14 each time). They had some awesome pizza and even better Matzo Ball Soup! This also was the home of Coyote Ugly, the place the parents closed down Saturday night. Luckily we all forgot to bring cameras. Don't worry we weren't as wild as those who were in need for some drug rehabilitation . After all we are gym parents.

Emily and Jessica.
Emily inside the Coca Cola store.
Me and my roommate Carlette outside of the Bellagio. I think the parents had just as much fun, if not more, than the kids. I really have made some awesome friends at the gym. And boy are they fun! We are already planning our next get together.

There is just a few. Sadly I forgot to get any pictures of Emily and myself together. Luckily Ken, one of the dads who was lucky enough to come with his daughter since his wife is deployed, took several of Em and I. I will post them (provided I look normal) when he emails them to me. In the meantime, you can see all the pictures here.
