how much can one cram in 72 hours?

Lots!!! With no kids around that is ;) So we pulled it off, both sets of grandparents took over for a few days and the kids had a blast. Meanwhile, we flew across the continent and had an action packed 3 days with very little sleep. Even though we had toyed with the idea, we forego the renewal of vows in a chapel for a helicopter ride which gave us an awesome aerial view of Sin City and brought us to the Grand Canyon where we landed in the valley and had a champagne brunch. SSOOOOO worth it. Back to our ultra luxurious hotel The Venetian to attend a convention, hit a few slot machines, view a few shows most notably Blue Men Group, attend a Biker's Ball where all attendees wore their choppers and danced to the sound of a 7 members rock/blues band and gorged ourselves with Southern food and enjoyed the Open Bar;), shook hands with Elvis in teh lobby of Caesers Palace, went to a very hip jet-set lounge where I felt very overweight and overaged but really enjoyed the fancy cocktails, walked and walked and walked to take in all the sights. lounged by the pool and yes nancy, indulged in some steamy hotel s*x right smack in the middle of the day :) What a way to celebrate 20 years of marriage. We vowed to return in 20 years if not sooner.

Funny thing though, after 3 days we both really missed the kids.

It sounds like the perfect celebration for your 20th. Glad you had so much fun and I hope you have a chance to go back much sooner. Renewing vows would have been cool for sure :)
