Our kids had never been to Vegas except for the "In N' Out Burger" on the way to California. They didn't know what to expect. Before we hit the Strip we explained a little about the tourism scene of Vegas. We told them that they would likely see inappropriate billboards and a bunch of other stuff they aren't used to seeing in Salt Lake :) . What were they to do in these situations? Look away. "Though there is a lot of evil on the Strip there is also fun things to look at." It was inspiring to watch as they were in the world but not of the world. Each time they saw something inappropriate they looked away and found something cool to look at.
I'm impressed with today's young children. I think kids these days are stronger than we were at their age. They are smarter, kinder, more faithful, more valiant, more aware, and more prepared. It's a blessing to be on the earth at this time and I have no doubt today's children can handle the world and the life that is ahead of them.
Swimming at the hotel
Watching a diver feed sting rays at the Silverton Casino
Game Works- next door to MGM
We spent hours there. Jason and Chandler could not get enough.
I'm not a good dancer so this took a lot of concentration.
We went to a dinner show called "Tournament of Kings" where you are served dinner to be eaten with your hands as you watch knights joust. Chandler cheered so loud he lost his voice.
We played games afterwards.
Rainforest Cafe at the MGM
While there we had an awesome afternoon spending time with Angie and Pascal. They took us to the most delicious pizza restaurant ever... Metro Pizza...soooo good.
We also had fun hanging with the Shumways. We ate at the Siverton buffet with Janet and her kids. After Aaron upgraded his satellite television we watched the BYU game which was a sad loss and spent a night playing the card game Eucre which was also a sad loss for me and Jason.
Our kids want to know, "when are we going back to Vegas?!!"
