Night out on the Town..

Girls night out is a must! Last night a few friends and I hit the town for some yummy grub and a a little r&r (relaxation and reminiscing)

R-L : Me, Nancy & Erica

Actually, the night was more for making a few last memories with Erica. Erica is moving next week with her adorable family to Denver, I'm going to miss her tons! She has become one of my best friends here in Vegas. Erica is an amazing individual, she is so caring and giving! She loves to serve others and is extremely in tuned with the needs of those around her. She has been my running buddy in extreme conditions...blazing heat, super (long )exhausting runs, or being an awesome trooper at the crack of dawn. We have made some great memories! She may not realize this, but she is a great cook! She has brought our family meals on different occasions, and they have always been so delish! Erica makes me laugh, and is always up for an adventure! Love you to pieces babe!

In the mist of our Casino hopping we caught up with Elvis, cruising in his pink car at the Bellagio. Unfortunately, he was too busy to take a quick snap shot with us. To bad for him.. three hott mamas?

The Bellagio has the best Gelato! Oh, and if you haven't experienced the water show, it is fabulous.. it was one of the things Erica wanted to see before she took off. They have a few different shows every 15 mins., and with it being the fourth of july just around the corner, they played a few patriotic theme songs! It was touching!

Here we are once again, this time we are at the Wynn Casino. There is so much to see and do, I really like having an array of diverse things to do minutes away! We don't get down on the strip much, but when we do there is so much to choose from. Vegas has some of the best shows around, and the are worth experiencing. Vegas is also known for it's endless choices on restaurants and yummy food. We grubbed at our new found Italian restaurant Maggianos! So good, and a great view of the strip! Thanks girls, the night out with you both was better than great, it was a remarkable night!

Long week....

Our family has had a very long week this past week! London has been really sick these past 3 weeks. We are still looking into the cause of the situation, but never the less she is still our happy girl and ever so more on the go! London started swimming lessons along with tot-nastics this last week. It has been a joy to see her learning new things and finding new interests. With the week filled with doctor visits, teaching classes and trying to keep up on my school work, it has been crazy busy!
We were able to find a morning to do my new found activity, mountain biking.!!! This time Robbie came with us! Yeah!(laughing) we had a blast! The course we rode was pretty technical and washy (lots of loose rocks) most of the way down the mountain. Yes the mountain! We car pooled up the mountain with our bikes to experience some down hill riding. It took us about 45 mins. to ride down the mountain. It was simply AWESOME! I have never experienced anything like it. The course was steep while winding through trees, over rocks and logs, and at times inching your way alongside a few cliffs. Robbie has a few souvenirs to show off his extreme ride.

So, since the week was packed with so much adventure, I thought I would post a video. Check out a few moments of our week! However, before you watch the video go to the bottom of the blog page where the music is playing and pause it!You will find the pause button on the upper left hand side. Then you can fully enjoy the video! Rock on!!!!

HAppy Fathers DAy!!!

Words cannot describe the feelings that swell in my heart for the amazing fathers that are in our lives! Sorry this is a day late, but we have had some pretty busy days with London being sick!

Robbie is the most amazing husband and father, he is the cooolest! This is why I married him, I saw the many qualities, attributes and enduring love he had for his future children, he portrayed a love for our heavenly Father that reflected his desires as a father figure one day! He is always so respectful to his mother and talked so highly of her, you could tell that family was very important to him in all he said and did. With the load of being a successful student, a provider, fulfilling his calling in church, being an supportive husband to me, he loves the time he gets to spend with London. It is always the sweetest joy to see both London and Robbie together; while he is either reading her a book, wrestling her and making her giggle til she wets her diaper or just watching them nap together. He loves his little girl and you can see it in his face once he walks through the door from a long day, almost as if it's a breath of fresh air! London on the other hand... loves, loves her daddy! She talks about him all day long, points at his pictures and gets all giggly! She loves cuddling with him and oh!!! when he walks through that door, or hears the door being unlocked she goes running with her hands in the air saying "daddy, daddy"! I think she'll be a good ole daddy's girl! Thanks honey for all you do... you Rock our world!

Dad Lueck or "AKA" Cool M--->

Dad Lueck, is one of the most genuine, laid back easy flowing guy I know. Some may disagree as he has always been a hard working machine and his boys would have a few stories to differ on being laid back, but in his ripe young age he is still a hard worker, just a bit more mellow. However Mark is very talented in all he does, if it be farming, any handyman work, a creative craftsman, or builder; he has taught all his boys how to work hard and apply themselves to do their best! Mark cracks me up and doesn't even try, it is just all in his mannerisms and personality! I love how he lives his life in such a simple and humble way! He is a great example of a man of integrity, faith and nobility.
Robbie gave a talk yesterday at church on fatherhood, these are just a few things he said about his father.."My whole life my father has been a worthy priesthood holder, he has provided for our family and has taught me so many valuable skills I use daily" he continued to share a few memorable experiences he had with his father. Robbie loves you very much Mark, and as funny as this sounds, you two are so much alike in soo many wonderful ways! I love you and am so grateful for your loving example!

Daddio! Wowers, where do I begin? I have always been Daddy's girl and through the years he has become one of my best friends! He has always been a great example of hard work, giving, excepting of everyone and the best listener! My list can of course go on and on... but it is of these I want to touch on. He has always been a very motivated individual with amazing energy for success. He excepts everyone as an individual and is very open minded: my friends growing up loved being around him as he opened his arms to them. Dad always said growing up that, "he wanted to give us everything he didn't have as a child". He succeeded with that desire as we never went without temporal things nor the best of all Love. We all know of our fathers love as he shows us through his love, support and his bear hugs! Last but not least, he has always been a great listener and non judgmental! Whenever my heart had been broken, he would hold me and let me cry; when I was confussed about a discission or was needing a venting ear he has always just listened, then would ask me to think about the situation, he never pushed his oppinion! I love his enthusiasm for life, he has such a crazy spontanious side that keeps him young! He is a wonderful, husband, father and grandfather!! I hope to take on some of his amazing traits as I go through life! Love you dad! Your Sis

Happy Fathers day!!!

Our lit'l dishwasher.....

Bubbles, Londs loves bubbles! She was so thrilled to help wash the dishes the other night & touch all the bubbles!

She really helped rinse the dishes & even attempted to put them in the dish rack. Londs loves to help me around the house. We just bought her, her own little broom. She was always wanting to push the big nasty broom around the house pretending as if she was cleaning. I love that she wants to help mom out!

Where do I begin? This site is AWESOME! Our ward missionary leader has invited us to check this site out for several weeks, I finally did and was so impressed with how user friendly, informative & just plain touching it is as you listen & watch the clips of testimonies. It is a great tool for members as well as those who have questions or an interest in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
They have started a pilot program here in Las Vegas as well as a handful of nation wide cities called "Truth Restored". We have some TV, Radio commercials that have aired, advertisements and such to promote It is a great tool in sharing the gospel! Not only is it a great tool to share with others it is great to hear the testimonies of individuals and reflect on your own testimony of the gospel which has been restored. I don't just believe the things that are shared on this amazing site are true, I know they are true!I am also grateful for the the gospel in my life and the knowledge of the purpose of life!! Check it out for yourself......
