Two in a row

Last night, we had a blast celebrating Kyle’s bday with the fam.

All the usual feast suspects were also in attendance, including madre’s glorious enchilada casserole

After our amazing dinner, we went home to put Liv to sleep, then Trev and Mik came over to stay with her while we met everyone out at the casino. The last time I was at the casino was years ago (to see a Pink concert) and I’d forgotten how much fun it is, even though I’m not big into gambling (but I do enjoy the slots machines).

I snapped this pic before I remembered that no photos are allowed…

It was SO much fun. I wasn’t too lucky, but thanks to the Pilot we came out ahead πŸ˜‰ Either way, it was a great time to go out with everyone and for the first time in who knows how long, we were out past midnight on a Friday night! Paaaarty animals.

In the theme of not knowing who we are, we’re on a short road trip for a date night we’d planned a while ago.

  17. Yay, date nights are always fun! Looks like a great bday bash too. I enjoy going to the casino..but for me I very quickly find out if I’m lucky or not lucky. Men always seem to win the big bucks- why not me πŸ˜›
