still relaxing

Day 4 of our vacation and we're having a really good time. The weather wasn't great yesterday but we made the most of it. We headed into Nisswa in the morning and went to the shops. I ended up buying a really cute purse at the princess store. It was much cuter than the kinds I normally buy at Target. I never buy stuff like that for myself so it was fun to pick it out and get all my stuff transferred into it last night. Man...just writing that makes me realize just how unexciting my life is. Haha.
Last night, Jay and I along with dad, Pat, and Lindsey went to the casino at Mil Lacs. We didn't even get there until about 11pm. Jay and I got a rewards card cuz they had a special when you sign up, you get 10 free dollars. So, before we even began, we were up $20. I put my $10 in a poker machine and won $25 on my first hand. I thought that was good, but then Jay put his $10 in another machine and on his first hand he got 4 aces!!! It paid him $400!! In the first 5 minutes we were there. He was so amazed, he said..I'm done, let's go.
We cashed that out and then after walking around a bit, I went to play some blackjack. After about 1 1/2 hours, I got up with $325 in chips. Holy cow, we now just made enough to pay for our whole cabin for the week. We were done, we were excited..and we were hungry, so we went to the cafe and got something to eat. Thinking we were leaving soon, we went to find everyone only to see that they were still playing. Soooo....I decided to sit down at the same table I had earlier. One hour later, I got up with another $340! We just made almost $1000 in one evening at the casino. I'm beginning to wonder if I should quit my daycare and go gambling full time. HA!
We got home at 4am and went to bed happy at the night's events. It was a good time.
Today's been fun. Just chilling, making some mixed drinks, daquairis, ice cream grasshoppers...mmmmmm.
On the lightside today......Tony was telling Kaylee that all the people in his family have a name that starts with a T except mom, dad, and Trae. I told him that Trae also had a name that began with T. Tony thought for a bit and said "CH..CH..CHrae....CH..CH..CHrae?" He totally thought that his name started with a CH sound. Too funny! Two minutes after I had told Pat that story, he called Tanner into the house. "Channer, come here...Channer?" HAHA!!
