Day 56

We are kind of stuck in a Vegas sandwich this week. Hard to explain except to say; I don’t want to be here but have to because of our flight home situation. Anyway…

We are trying to find kid friendly places and make the most of it.

The resort pool is nice. There is a warm pool, a cool pool, and a freezing splash fountain.

The smoothies are a hit too.

The night time view from our room is really pretty too.

This morning we had the worlds longest breakfast experience.

It involved a “best breakfast place in Vegas” recommendation on another bloggers site, fighting the traffic on the strip, ending up valet parking at Caesars Palace for $25, dragging three kids through a smoky casino, waiting 90 minutes for a table, shopping to kill time and dodge marijuana smoke, buying too much candy, getting a bath soak demonstration, eating what was then lunch instead of breakfast, exploring the Mirage, and running two city blocks as fast as we could to meet our four hour valet parking time limit. 🥵

Brunch was good, but not sure it was worth the ordeal or expense…

The Cobb Salad and the Homeade strawberry jam were delicious.

In the Mirage we got to see some awesome creatures. Excited that having AAA got me in free! Saved $25!

Underwater dolphin viewing area.

Went for an afternoon swim

Based on the concierge recommendation for a kid friendly evening….

We went to the Fremont Ave experience.

Well, it was an experience all right.

Nothing kid friendly about it.

But we did enjoy the Container Park before hitting the wild strip.

The girls got a 15 minute magic lesson with the purchase of their kit.

And have been practicing ever since, even while waiting for our dinner table.

There were some interesting acts we watched briefly.

We waited an extraordinary amount of time for dinner. Glad the girls could practice their magic tricks.

Realized after we sat down why there was a 90 minute wait.

Every famous chef from food network was plastered on the wall after having dined there.

And their chicken was the most tender I have ever had in a Thai stir fry.

We will be back here before we leave Vegas, but we’ll make a reservation first.

Nina barely made it back before falling asleep, even after a few sips of Thai tea.

Nite nite all, it’s been a long day.

  1. You are only about 40 miles from Hoover Dam which is a very interesting place for a good day trip while stuck in Vegas, and a educational experience.
