We planned a trip with my brother & his wife to go to Vegas. I've never been, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I loved it. We had a blast. We ate good food, we drank, we saw Le Reve, we met up with friends that were also there, we laid by the pool.

We definitely want to go back. There's just so much to see and do, and it's really fun people watching.
That same week we got back, my brother was shot in the line of duty at work. It was one of the scariest few minutes of my life when I got the call, but didn't know if he survived. To hear my niece say "he's alive" was the best phrase I had ever heard. I'm thankful everyday for my brother, that God protected him, that he's back at work. I'm so thankful to all police officers who put their lives on the line and their families that live with that truth everyday.
I'm so glad Chloe's birthday and graduation were so soon after the shooting. It was good to have a celebration. Chloe turned 5! She had a boingos birthday with her friends. She loved it, and I loved that I didn't have to do anything but show up! She got a bike for her birthday, since she outgrew the other one and Isabelle's old one was too big. She's a little speed racer!
