Selo's Birthday Vacation

We had a great time. It was fun, and relaxing, and perfect to celebrate his birthday. (Okay, we still would have rather gone to visit his girls for his birthday, but he was told no, so I did the next best thing.)

Here are some pictures of our weekend.

The weather was wonderful. It was a bit cool during the day, and cold at night. We left the doors open during the day, and snuggled at night. Perfect in front of the fireplace :)

Selo's Mom and her boyfriend drove down early Friday and went to Mesquite. My mom and her husband, Dave, drove Selo and I down Friday after work. We got there about midnight, and Susan and Bryan met us at the resort shortly after. We roamed the resort for a minute, then unpacked and got settled. Then we all went to bed and enjoyed our first night in our comfy beds. Selo and I had a huge master bedroom with a king size bed, a walk-in closet, and a master bathroom. AND a private entrance onto the deck. Mom and Dave had the other bedroom, and Susan and Bryan had the murphy bed.

Saturday morning, Selo and Dave started in on Guitar Hero III for the Wii. (Susan brought her Wii and Dave brough GH3.) I made breakfast and we all were stuffed. After breakfast, I brought out the cupcakes I made for Selo's birthday and we sang happy birthday to him. They were good cupcakes! I highly recommend the butter pecan flavor of cakemix. After cake and singing, Selo opened his gifts. He got a bunch of games, including Apples to Apples, and Monopoly with the new Speed Dice (it's really cool!) We played some of the games for a while, and snacked on all the food we had.
After the games, we went to dinner at Selo's favorite restaurant. It was sooooo good. They brought him out a strawberry sunday fr his birthday, and we sang to him again :) We then went to the mall, where we shopped for a while. He found two T-shirts that he really liked, so I bought them for him. It's not often HE pulls clothes off the rack that he likes!
We went back to the hotel and played more games. We started with Smartie Pants, a game Dave brought. Then we played Mario Party 8, which I absolutely love. And in the middle of all of this, Selo and Bryan still played a couple games of Chess.
Later that night, we all went to the pool. It was warm! And the hot tub was so relaxing. It was wonderful. I can't even describe how wonderful it was. And I got to see Selo in a swimming suit. Rawr Baby. lol

Sunday morning, after sleeping in, we got up and packed up. We took our time, since we were all so relaxed and lazy. We loaded the vehicles, checked out, and left. We went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast. Mmmmm. After Cracker Barrel, we got on the road for home. A few parts were pretty scary, going through storms and stuff. But we made it back safe and sound.

We had a fabulous weekend. Selo kept saying over and over how he had such a good time and how grateful he was for the weekend away. It was a great birthday for him.
