Las Vegas is actually one of few places we go that so comfortably handles our family (weird that it's Vegas of all places, no?). Patrick's parents have this fantastic time-share just a few blocks off the strip that is clean, quiet, family friendly, and the condo is large enough to hold us with room to spare. And this trip we made an effort to make it as child-focused as possible.
Here is Patrick and Caroline having breakfast our first morning:
The girls waiting for the limo to pick us up:
In the limo with Grandma and Grandpa on our way to the "Tournament of Kings" show at the Excalibur hotel:
Before the show started:
One of the "kings" came by after the show and let Maggie pet his horse. It was a great show and the girls loved it!
We went to the M&M store:
The next day was pottery painting. Maggie painted a frog piggy bank and Caroline painted a turtle piggy bank. They are wearing the hair bows/flowers they had made the day before:
By the pool playing chess with Dad:
Making a cushion fort with Grandma:
We thought the kids would love the Rainforest Cafe. We were WRONG. The hostess asked us if our girls were afraid of gorillas. We said no. Um, wrong. They sat us by the animated gorillas and every time they turned on and moved the kids freaked out. Maggie was especially freaked out by them. Poor girl!
We have pictures of a few other things but I have to somehow motivate Patrick to download them from his phone...
The drive home:
Thanks a million Grandma and Grandpa for a great week!
