Las Vegas

On our way home from San Diego we made unexpected overnight stop in a Vegas to show our kids a few places we liked when Mike and I went for our anniversary.
Our kids were overwhelmed with amazement when they seen The Strip.
We went to Coke world first.
After playing around looking at all the amazing Coke merchandise we order Taste of the world. 
 Some were very yummy where we were arguing who will get the last sip from the cup and some were yucky, yucky, yucky!

Next stop M&M Store!
Big mistake!
When our kids seen the wall of m&m's their eyes opened wider than I've ever seen. Joy/excitement/happiness/bliss/love.... It was a dream come true.
A kid in a candy store can be very expensive.
So expensive I couldn't check out so mike did it. Cost for our half a bag came close to $25! They savored  every bit.
Afterwards we walked around the strip and seen so many amazing things.
Lily and Cati screamed,"Olaf!" And ran right up to him. And of course Olaf needed payment for his photo since he's in between jobs.

More amazing things we seen 
Bob the minion 
Lego Liberty 

A quick stop in Paris
Magic floating man 
Caesar's palace
The fall of Atlantis
And of course we needed to show our kids the famous Carlo's Bakery
Yes dreams did come true!
They were so excited to be eating another Buddy canoli that they couldn't contain themselves. Honestly who could. I was so excited too!

So after an amazing and long night we slept in our cheap motel like an old deaf man. 
Next day we stocked up on some White Castle and pop and started our drive home. 
Our kids absolutely loved Vegas. 
I know some people in our lives are completely against vegas. That it's a place of sin. A place of pornography, sex, alcohol, adultery, greed,etc. 
yes this is all true. 
But if that's all one person focuses on then that's all that person will see. 
We found so many family oriented places that one day wasn't enough for us to experience it all. Plus Las Veas can't be that bad since God put a temple there. :)
We can't wait to go back.
