Vacation: Heading Home

On the way home we stopped in Vegas again. We stayed at The Hotel. It was very nice. Because it was Sunday night and slow we were able to get 2 suites connecting for a very low rate. We just opened the doors between them and had a large apartment. We had 4 rooms and 4 bathrooms so everyone had plenty of room to spread out.

Once there we took the kids to see the Shark Encounter at Mandalay Bay. It was about $75 for all of us to go through and it was alright. It took less then an hour to walk through. Maybe if we had not just gone to the zoo 2 days before it would have been better. They have lots of good things to see but many we had just seen at the zoo.

Christmas card? I think not! Look at Jason's face! Ha!!

After looking at the sharks we changed and went to the pool. It was great. They have a lazy river that is faster then any of the other ones that we have been in. There was a large regular pool, a huge kiddie area, and a wave pool, that the kids really enjoyed. You have to be 48 inches to go into the wave pool and Abigail just barely made it! They also have a beach with chairs.

After swimming we hit up the buffet at Mandalay Bay. My advice, pay $5 more a person and go to The Bellagio. Mandalay Bay was tiny and questionable.

The next morning we stopped to get fireworks on the way home. This is always our last stop before we cross the border to get home. The vacation was amazing, as always. We learned a lot which will make next year;s trip that much better.
