Vegas Vacation Day 2

Day 2 of our trip started at Circus Circus. They have free circus shows daily, so we played in the arcade until the show started. Ava loved the clown.  He did some juggling with a giant yo yo. She was a little bored with the umbrellas, but I thought it was neat.

Next we went to Adventuredome.  Since it was midweek, and most kids were not quite out of school yet, the place was pretty much empty!  Most of the time Ava was the only one on the rides. It was great and she had a lot of fun.  The only thing she didn't like was the 4D movie!  It was Dora so I thought she'd like it.  But the "effects" (things slapping your ankles under your seat, air blowing on your face) scared her.  We had to leave after just a couple minutes.

One of Ava's favorites was the roller coaster.

A close second was the Frog Hopper!

Games games games.  Ava wanted to play games the entire trip.  She just loved it.

All her winnings.  A pizza, a doughnut, and penguin.  She was so happy.

After Adventuredome we went back to Bellagio and checked out the chocolate fountain.

More swimming of course!

For dinner we walked over to Caesars to eat at Serendipity 3.  There are lots of nice fountains at Caesars Palace.

Ava never eats all her food so I had been sharing meals with her the entire trip.  Hot dogs, PB&J, chicken strips,etc.  I was burnt out on toddler food, so I was ready for this yummy crab cake salad!  Crab cake, grapefruit, corn, avocado, and greens.  Soo good!

More walking around Cesars.  Ava yelled, "Look a DANCER!!"  She was thrilled.

More fountains!  Ava was always excited to throw coins in them.

Most of our trip revolved around activities for Avalyn.  But this night I got to break away and see Mariah!!  LOVED IT!!  She was great and her singing was beautiful.  Wow, her high notes are just incredible.  She sang every #1 song she's had. The entire show was excellent.  Jon spent the evening with Ava (take a guess!) playing in the arcade!!

  1. I'm enjoying reading all about your Vegas trip! I'm actually surprised at how much you were able to plan for Ava, but it's been almost 10 years (crazy!) since I've been there so clearly I'm out of the loop. That's awesome that you were able to get away for a night by yourself and see Mariah! I bet she was fantastic!
