Can you guess where we were camping last night??

The REI Grand Opening in Summerlin (Las Vegas) NV!! Last night my friend Carly and I camped out in front of the store because the first 200 customers got a Nalgene bottle with a gift card inside. How cool is that?? So, here are some pictures from last night. Truth be told, Carly was the true die hard behind this whole event. I was mostly coming along for the fun of it - and of course for the nalgene bottle. You just can't beat the adventure, and a night with no kids?? Who would give that up.



The pictures from last night were taken by a security guard. He was really nice. He was inside the store most of the time, but he watched us from the lobby and made sure we were safe all night. I had one of the best night's sleep that I've had in a long time.



The last two pictures on the right are this morning's pictures. I woke up around 6:15 am and this was my view. Around 7 am, one of the supervisor's for this grand opening event pulled up on his bullet bike and took this picture of us. Yes, we were the only two people until around 7:30 am when two more people joined us. I guess you could say we were either die hards, or nut cases, or both. Oh, and my awesome friend Britney cut my hair yesterday too!! I'll show the pictures in another post. I just couldn't stand having my hair get so long and it was really quite blah...so she spiced it up for me and did an AWESOME JOB!!

IF YOU LIVE IN VEGAS, YOU HAVE TO HAVE BRITNEY CUT YOUR HAIR!! Here's her info...

You are hardcore for camping out! I hope you got a good giftcard. We just had a new REI open in Ann Arbor, MI, and I drove over there the morning of and there was a HUGE crowd. I didn't even think to get there any earlier. You were so smart to camp out! We didn't get a gift card, but they had extra Nalgenes, so that was good. We barely got one of those, though. You are the real creative one! I love your Kid's Philosophy site. I wish Keira would wear a barrette for more than 5 minutes.

Crazy the things mom's do, to have a night away from kids! That's awesome that you guys were the only two all night!!! How much was the gift card for?
