Last summer, my husband booked a comped room at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for us in November. We were both excited because 1) it was free, 2) we’d never stayed at this hotel before, and 3) it was free. So we took Friday off work, packed up the ol’ Alero, and drove through the desert to Sin City. Although Las Vegas claims to have gotten more kid friendly in recent years, nothing about our trip was kid friendly. When you have kids, you can’t do the following things that we did:
- Spend a ridiculous amount of money on a steak dinner, bottle+ of wine, and dessert at a nice restaurant.
- Play video poker, drink Captain & Cokes (him) and Bloody Marys (me), and lose your money at 10am.
- Stay in a smoke-filled environment gambling and shopping for hours on end.
- See the Cirque du Soleil show, Zumanity, at New York New York. This show is billed as their “sensual” show and there were times where I thought even I was too young to be there.
Our good friends, Jessica and Karl, joined us in Vegas for the weekend and we all had a blast. Here are some pictures from our weekend:
