Vegas Vacation Day 3

On day 3 we started at the Mirage's Dolphin/Tiger Exhibit. 

We both loved the dolphins.  Ava even listened to the instructor led training session.  She said, "Wow they eat a lot of fish!"  The dolphin jumps were the best!

So cute!

We spent a lot of time in the underwater viewing area.  Ava kept saying, "LOOK I see one!" every time a dolphin would head towards our window.

Ava got to participate in the Dolphin Meet & Greet!  She was so excited.  But when the dolphin slid up onto the platform she got a little freaked out!!  I think it was just bigger than she expected.  She did pet it briefly.  She wanted to feed it fish but they said guests were not allowed to.

This is a leopard but Ava insists it's a jaguar, lol.

Checking out the white tiger.

On the way back we stopped for another fountain and some characters!

Ava was so spoiled on the trip.  Lots of treats!

Our final day of swimming and naps at the pool.

That night we went to Excalibur for the Tournament of Kings dinner theater.  Despite the show being extremely loud (they had to bring Ava ear plugs) we enjoyed ourselves.  Ava was really into the show.  I mean, where else can you scream at the top of your lungs and bang on the table?!  We were in the front row and the cast did an excellent job of interacting with Ava and waving at her.  Towards the end there was a lot of fighting and lots of pyrotechnics.  Ava started to cry so I had to take her out of the show for about 10 minutes.  Once the battle was over and the queens came out she was excited to return.

On the walk back to the hotel we stopped at Hershey World.  Here's Ava and Jon with a 5lb chocolate bar!

  1. I'm surprised there were so many characters dressed up for the kids. Were they just randomly walking around or did they have a show or something they were part of?
