Think Las Vegas is just for bachelorette parties and Elvis-officiated weddings? Think again. This family of three travelled to Vegas for a relaxing weekend getaway. Read on for how they recharged and spent quality time together in this vibrant Nevada city.

“We only had a weekend to get away since my husband is graduating Physician Assistant school in August. He just got a job and we wanted to celebrate. Heading to Las Vegas was a great getaway for us to enjoy swimming, eating out and celebrating the next chapter in our lives as we prepare to move to a different state.

“It has been a long 28 months of studying and we’ve been living in a different place almost every month since January for clinical rotations, so we needed a weekend to just focus on us. Our favourite part of the trip was getting the call from the doctor my husband will be working for with a firm contract offer. Sometimes you just need a short little trip to recharge, to not worry about dishes, vacuuming, cooking, etc. To be able to take photos to remember that we survived grad school was a great way to celebrate.

“Our Vegas trip was a bit unusual since we have a 2-year-old and neither of us drinks! However, going to Las Vegas was the first trip that my husband and I took together with his family when we were dating, so it was fun to come back with our little one now.

“Belinda was so great to work with! My toddler was hating life and not even chocolate bribes could get him to smile, so we rolled with it and somehow she captured some of the rare instances when he did crack and smile! She listened to the style I wanted and achieved it – thank you!” – Taryn
