Throwback Thursday Stories: Vegas, Baby!

Linking up with The Mom Creative again for #TBTStories.  My scrapbooking, memory-keeping heart is loving this!

This photo was taken almost 9 years ago.  Justin and I had been married around a year when we were invited to fly out to Las Vegas to watch Supercross Finals.  That's dirt bike racing, just so you know.   And back when Travis Pastrana was still racing.  It was our first "real" trip as a married couple.

We flew out on a Friday morning and flew back home on Monday, so it was quite the whirlwind trip.  The race was on a Saturday night and one of my favorite memories is of the jets flying overhead before the races began.  I had never been in a stadium where jets flew that low and it was amazing.

While in Las Vegas, we drove over the Hoover Dam, which is where the above photo was taken.  It was breath-taking.  And humbling, to know that so many lives (112, according to Wikipedia) were lost in its construction.

We also did a little site-seeing on the strip in Las Vegas.  Justin's cousin, Greg, lived in Las Vegas at the time and was more than happy to be our personal tour guide.

I'm so thankful that we had this experience, because it's not something I see us doing anywhere in the near future.  Las Vegas just isn't a place to travel with young children :).   Visiting Las Vegas DOES happen to be on my 30 Before 30 list, too!

What travel spots are on your bucket list?
