Las Vegas Trip and Tournament

On the 23-26 of this month we headed south to a bit of (slightly) warmer weather for a soccer tournament in Las Vegas. We left dark and early on Friday morning, and arrived in LV with some time to go and check out the Strip. Madison loved the hotels, but the actual walking on the strip made her uncomfortable (don't blame her...) She really wanted to go to Madame Tussauds, which ended up being pretty fun. The best people that I got to see were Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Daniel Graig, Chris Angel, and plant the flag on the moon with Niel Armstrong. It was pretty funny because Ari believed that I had actually met Dwayne Johnson (not only do we love Peyton Manning, but we google over Dwayne too). I only let her believe it for a little while....

On another evening we went to Avatar (again) but this time we saw it at the IMAX! I thought it was amazing the first time, but WOW and double WOW! it was even more incredible at the IMAX. A huge thank you to our friend Aaron G. who when early and bought all 9 of our groups tickets, then saved us incredible seats while we were rushing from dinner and trying to find the place...phew we made it though!

Now for the tournament results: Game 1 against NV Racing Angels a 2 to 1 victory, Game 2 vs Ballistic NV a 2 to zip shut out victory, Game 3 against Heat NV a 3 to nada victory, and Game 4 against LV Premier a 2 to goose egg victory, and 2010 Silver State Tournament Champions!! It was fun to watch the girls do so well, and have so much fun! So proud of our girls!

Learned: There is a WHOLE lot more to Vegas than the Strip...
