CA Family Road Trip: Las Vegas

Better late than never, right?

We left for California about a month ago on September 13th! We were so excited for our first vacation as a family of three!

First stop: LAS VEGAS! This is how Charlie looked about a third of the time during our car rides. It was heavenly:
When we got into town, we visited the Aquarium at Mandalay Bay casino and had a lot of fun looking at fish, jellyfish, and most importantly SHARKS! :) We are pretty scary, huh? Almost as scary as the real thing!
 Look Dada! A fish! (Bad quality photo courtesy of poor lighting and an iPhone haha):
Afterwards we cruised the Strip to see all the lights. Charlie was fascinated :)
The next morning we ate breakfast at the Peppermill, a delicious restaurant about a block from the Las Vegas Hotel that we stayed in. It was SO good! Trev knew about this place from back in the days when he used to own part of a parking enforcement company in Vegas and they patrolled this lot. I took a picture of our souvenir picture. :)
After breakfast we had some extra time so we toured some of the big casinos on the Strip. This was a huge sports room inside Caesar's Palace where there were TONS of men (and about 2 women) gathered to eat, drink, and place bets on the day's sports games. I thought it was pretty entertaining. The things that men do with sports... it cracks me up :)
The Bellagio. We were there too early for the fountain shows.
My two good looking men walking down the streets of... Paris? Nope. Fooled you. Still Las Vegas ;)
Strolling along. Oddly enough, this picture makes downtown Las Vegas look like a nice place. But it was hot, smelly, and dirty... As you would expect.
Inside the Cosmopolitan. I hadn't ever seen this hotel before since it's really new.
Within minutes of getting on the highway to continue on to Los Angeles/Anaheim, Charlie looked like this again:
More of our adventures to come!! :) Stay tuned.
