Warning: Starting today and continuing several days will be a series of very long posts with lots of pictures.
Last Monday we started our vacation. Aaron worked a half day, then around 1:00 we piled into the car. Our first destination was Las Vegas. We got a room there at Circus Circus for only $30. We didn't do much that night, but the next morning we sure did. They have several circus acts throughout the day. We saw three.
The first was clowns. Very funny and entertaining.
The second was...well...stuff like this:
The third was this lady in a net high in the air doing scary things. They were all entertaining.
We also did some arcade type things and got Morgan a couple toy cars with the tickets won. One he got for free, because everybody there thought he was just so cute. Seriously, he made lots of friends while in Vegas. Particularly in elevators. He'd just start up conversations with strangers and they loved him.
They also have a bit of an amusement park in Circus Circus, so we bought Morgan a wrist band and took him around to all the little kid rides.
His favorite was the airplane/helicopter ride, which he went on several times.
They let me ride the bus with him for free. He was tense.
The train was kind of fast and jerky, which scared him pretty good. He and the little boy in front of him spent a good majority of that ride screaming and crying.
That same little boy was next to him on this mini-Lagoon-style-rocket. They were happy at first...
But then it got scary...
Oh it was funny.
We also went and saw the lions at MGM Grand as well as the Bellagio Fountains.
By the time we finally left Vegas we were very tired of walking around. All day on your feet is so tiring!
From there we drove to Redlands California to Aaron's Aunt Teresa's house. We stayed with them for the whole week. We had fun with them. They are a fun family and made us comfortable. And Morgan LOVED playing there with Aaron's cousins. He got lots of attention, which he loves.
