Our kids were gone for the weekend AND it just so happened to be my birthday! That was all the motivation we needed to pack a small bag and jump in the car. We convinced a couple friends to go too.
And off we went, to The Biggest Little City in the World, Reno, Nevada!
Just a short 4 hour drive from home, we pulled into the little city that never sleeps. We check into our hotel close to 11pm, and the activity buzzing around us made us feel like it more like 11 in the morning. It was a party from the second we walked in!
We stayed at The Silver Legacy.
BEST DECISION EVER.
You don’t even need to step outside…unless you dig those McDonalds Egg McMuffins, like we do, then you simply must walk across the street! Otherwise, since The Silver Legacy is connected to a few other casino/hotels, it was PERFECT. Everything we wanted was at our fingertips.
We didn’t need much. We wanted to have fun. It was my birthday for cryin out loud! Dancing, drinks, activity, food, games, prizes, live music, comedy shows, slot machines, craps, poker, spa, pool, hot tubs….it was all near us. Walking distance.
With no time to lose, we dropped our stuff in the room and headed back out into the action.
Nicolle found a giant elephant.
I then had to save said elephant.
We made it until the wee hours of the morning. Then we needed a bit of sleep.
The next day was already here. I had BIG plans for the next day. Circus Circus. I am a grown up child. I would much rather play circus games than the slot machines, so that was the plan. Coffee, food and then GAMES!
YAY, MORE Friends joined us for the rest of the trip!
FINALLY, sometime around midnight…or 2am…or 4ish…I really have NO idea what time it was….I got some birthday cake! Mmmmm!
Annnnnddd….our trip was complete. Fun was had. Laughter was abounding.
Super SUCCESSFUL little get-a-way. We will do it again. Hopefully sooner than later.
Some of our best little get-a-ways have been the ones we hardly even planned…
