Anyway, even though we had a month to ask for help with the kids, because it was the week of Thanksgiving, no one could come watch the kids for us, so we were forced to take them with us.
Welcome to Nevada sign:
So here we are, a quick 45 hour trip to a place I wanted to go to just to say I'd been I guess. The hotel that the regiment was set up at wasn't on the strip itself, but it was still a hotel. Everything there is just a facade. It looks nice on the outside but not exactly "luxury." The whole point it to just get you out of your rooms into the casinos to spend mucho money. So another words, not a great place for a family with a 3 and 1 yr old. In fact the mini bar in our room was charged off of weight and it was on top a low dresser. So if items were removed you were charged.....Yeah just removed.....or moved....or picked up, even if put back unused. Not a great place for kids. Luckily the room service staff was understandable and said as long as there wasn't anything used they would remove all weight charges.
In 7 years in the Marine Corps, this was actually our first professional ball pic:
Our sleepy babies on the way home....
Maybe some day Vegas would be great without young kids, a nicer hotel, catching a show or two and maybe even playing a table.....But it sure sucked all around this whole trip!!
