Thai's 21st Birthday

This year, my not-so-baby cousin turned 21. The cousins made a pact a long time ago that when the time should come that the youngest of us would turn 21, we would all celebrate in Las Vegas. We somehow managed to make a cute idea turn into an awesome reality.

Riley flew with me to California. She stayed there and spent time with family and celebrated Aidan and Brooke's birthdays while I continued onto Vegas with Bao and the cousins. We were stuck in Friday Vegas traffic, but when we finally got there, that didn't stop us from having a fun-filled night. We shuttled over to the Delano where we enjoyed some drinks and dancing with an amazing view of the strip.

The next day, we got started with lunch at Bucchanal, the best buffet in Vegas. This was followed by some gambling in downtown Las Vegas. The rest of our party arrived, and we got fancied up for a night kicked off with some BoyzIIMen, followed by some more drinks and dancing.

Not a Ngo family party without shots
I don't know how to put into words how much fun was had that weekend. I completely enjoyed all the cousins that were able to make it to Thai's celebration. I am still having the post-fun giddiness as I sit here and think about the fun that we had.

I'd like to say thank you to my parents and my sister and BIL for taking such great care of Riley. That was the longest she had been by herself, and its clear she enjoyed herself. Also shoutout to party planning extraordinaire, Bao, for organizing an awesome family trip. Who turns 21 next?!?!
