Las Vegas vacation

It was amazing to get away for a few days.

I came back feeling rejuvenated and ready to be an amazing mami to my precious Baby.

Well we left on Sunday and Baby was amazing on the way down. Did not cry or whine once. It was the perfect ride down. We got there unpacked and headed out to get some yummy Korean food. We had been craving Korean BBQ for months now since the last time we had it in Vegas. OK, if you do not know what Korean BBQ is you must look it up and go to the nearest restaurant it is amazing. One of my favorite things to eat. After dinner we decided to go down the strip and walk around with Baby, well that was a mistake, a big one. We only made it one block before we realized that walking down the strip with a child at night is a BIG no no. On our way back to the hotel we hear a guy selling "coke" it was the weirdest thing. After that we really hurried up to get to our room for the night.

On Monday we had free lunch vouchers for the buffet and that was super yummy. Then we went to the Shark Reef at the Mandalay Bay. Baby had a blast at this place. Me not so much after realizing how expensive it was but hey it is Vegas right? Then we took the longest nap ever after Baby threw a huge fit as we were leaving the Shark Reef. We woke up and took Baby to the MGM Grand to see the Lions which was pretty cool to see the Lions interact with their trainers. Baby kept on asking for mac-n-cheese so we took him to the Rainforest Cafe which was the most expensive mac-n-cheese I have EVER and will probably ever pay for. Not only was the food expensive I think we traumatized our child with all the animal noises going on and then with the fake lightning and thunder. I think we put on a pretty good show for the other people around us. We then went and took Baby back to the room and left him with mom-mom and Jon and I went out on the strip. We walked from the Luxor down to the Caesars Palace. On the way down the strip we got lost in a hotel that we had never seen but holy cow! the most beautiful, luxurious, sexy hotel I have ever seen. Turns out its called the Cosmopolitan for anyone that has money just laying around this is the place to go, wow, it was just breath taken. We totally fell out of place. the time we made it to Caesars Palace both Jon and I could no longer walk so we ended up taking a taxi back.

Tuesday was amazing, we paid to have a cabana by the pool for the whole day and we honestly had a blast. Baby now can float by himself and he just had a blast the whole entire time we were there. In our cabana we had a couch, table and chairs, a huge tv and free drinks. I didn't even know what a cabana was till then and I think we will be doing this on any vacation so worth it. Baby had so much fun by 5pm he was completely out. We walked throughout 2 hotels casinos with him staying asleep the whole time.

All in all it was the best Vegas vacation I have had and that is saying something cause we go to Vegas a lot while on our way down to California.

The way back was a little bit harder with Baby whining a ton and not wanting to be in his sit but still he was so good the whole time down there that I didn't even mind the ride back.

I think we might need to do this trip one more time before the summer is over.
