Rolling the dice and shaking the rattle: Vegas with our baby - Day 1

Yes, we chose Las Vegas as our mid-week get-a-away. Prices were right in comparison to southern California and northern California locations, there were endless dining choices, and for a city synonymous for its secrets we wanted and were determined to make it work for us- finding family friendly Las Vegas.

Our deluxe room boasted views of the West, of the strip and Mirage's volcano. We also had a great view of the pool below. After putting our feet up, unpacking, feeding my nugget we decided to take it easy this evening by checking out our hotel pool, ordering a drink, walking down the strip, taking in the Mirage hotel's volcano and interior and the Venetian's gondolas before we heading back in to our room.

Gin and tonic for daddy at Japonais. Mommy is still babysitting her beer.

Here's husby (cheesing it up), Sigfred, Roy and lion.

View of the stip and its expansive array of casinos.

Swingers or pimp?

We ended our night by staying in and ordering room service; a giant cobb salad for me and hot wings for husby. Tomorrow: the Carroll Shelby museum, Shark Reef Aquarium, hanging out pool side, and defeating the Wynn Buffet.
