The trip we had been waiting for finally arrived! We were off to Vegas to celebrate my 30th birthday (and to enjoy a few kid-free days)! All of the “Silverman” kids were on board, except Abby, Cari & Alex, who had a wedding to attend 🙁 Saying goodbye to the boys was sad. It was the first time Joey was old enough to realize we were leaving him for an extended period. Joey actually cried a bit, but nothing a few M&Ms couldn’t take care of! They were in good hands with Nanny and Poppy!
We got in late Thursday night, grabbed a snack and went to bed. We enjoyed a sleep in on Friday morning and met for brunch. Here are the girls at the Belaggio…
All dressed up for our first night on the town!
The boys must have done well at the casino…Here we are on the way to dinner in a stretch limo!
The setting of dinner was one of the prettiest I had ever seen.
It was all downhill from there…The service at Bartolotta Ristorante was mediocre, as was the food! We managed to still enjoy ourselves, though.
For brunch the next morning, we headed to the Palms. Brunch was awesome and I think we ordered just about everything on the menu!
Facetiming with the kids!
The next night, we had a more casual dinner at a burger restaurant at the Cosmopolitan before heading to a show. We got in a bit of shopping and a drink too!
Off to Michael Jackson! The show was cool, but we were exhausted. About 1/2 of us fell asleep during it. We just can’t hang like we used to!
We spent our last day in Vegas relaxing, just laying by the pool and even enjoying a massage at the spa!
On our last night in Vegas, we headed to Craft Steak at the MGM. Everyone was really happy with their meals, although our waiter told us Tom Colicchio may be stopping by and never did.
We managed to celebrate my birthday once again!

On the gambling front, I had terrible luck…Fortunately, my husband made up for it and “Team Goodman” left Vegas ahead!
