Brian had a conference for work a couple of weeks ago in Las Vegas. We decided to make a much needed vacation out of it and headed down as a family. I was reluctant to take Averie, but I figured there was plenty to do with a 2 year old in Vegas. Our hotel was great! We stayed in Tahiti Village and it was great for families. The rooms were condo style so we had our own kitchen and separate bedroom. The pool was incredible. There was also a Lazy River too. I was really glad that we went to the pool the first day we were there because it was freezing the rest of the trip.
Here's Ave and Daddy checking for snakes. Averie was convinced that there were snakes in the bushes. We had to keep explaining to her that there were no snakes, and hoping there were no snakes. It is so funny the things get worked up about. I mean what made her think that there were snakes in the bushes?
The first night that we were there we decided to take Averie to Excalibur. We ended up taking her to the King of Thrones dinner show and she loved it. She didn't eat a thing while we were there so I was glad that she still fell into the free age.
She thought it was pretty cool to be in a "real" castle.
I have been to Vegas countless times in the past but I have never once been to the Hoover Dam. It seemed like a family appropriate destination so we were off. I think we picked the windiest day ever. It was so freaky to be up so high with the wind blowing so hard. You will have to excuse some of the pictures. My camera was acting up and I didn't have time to mess with the lighting on them at all. It was super bright that day!
Another good thing about Las Vegas is that there are lots of animal attractions. We headed over to the Mirage and went to the dolphin/tiger habitat. I was a little disappointed with the dolphin show, but Averie had a great time.
We tried to get a picture of Ave next to this grass grown tiger statue and she was not having it. She was NOT going to stand next to that thing!
