Instead of driving straight home after our adventure to Lake Mead, we went to visit our friends in Las Vegas. We spent the next few days exploring some of the kid friendly activities they have on the strip. First stop was the Las Vegas sign. You can click here to see my post about a trip we took to Las Vegas when I was pregnant with Jacob, which includes a baby bump picture with the Las Vegas sign.
We spent that day at the Shark Reef and Aquarium at Mandalay Bay. Lots of cool things to see there!
Which included crocodiles…
And giant fish…
And of course sharks!
Another day we explored Siegfried and Roy’s Secret Garden at the Mirage. They had beautiful tigers and lions
And the dolphins were really fun to watch!
One of my favorite things to do in Las Vegas is just walk around the casinos/hotels and look at all the shops and decor. We did that for a bit and the boys were trying to find their way to the pool party 🙂
Afterwards our friends took us to one of their favorite places to eat. It was a fun restaurant with lots of games to keep the boys entertained and the food was fantastic!
We spent our late afternoons and evenings at the pool and enjoyed our time with our friends. It was definitely a different kind of Las Vegas experience, and we learned that Vegas can be fun with kids!
